Announcing The Outpost Club/HHH Alternate Shot Event

The Outpost Club has teamed up with One Divot to raise money for various worthwhile charitable causes. The first annual Hundred Hole Hike (HHH) Tournament will take place on June 17th on the Old Course at Stonewall Links in Elverson, Pennsylvania, incorporating a unique alternate-shot format. The event is set to take place the day after the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion in nearby Ardmore.

For this event, each two-person team will choose a charitable cause and then reach out to their network of friends and family to collect pledges on either a lump-sum or per-hole basis. Players must walk a minimum of 54-holes but everyone is encouraged to walk 100 or more in order to raise as much money as possible for the cause of their choice.

Starting as early as possible on Monday morning, two-person teams will play pure alternate shot as they make as many trips around the course as possible. The team's final score will be determined by adding up the two lowest scores from each hole throughout the day. The Outpost Club is making a substantial donation to the charities of choice for the Net and Gross Division winners.

We are fortunate to play the event at the Old Course at Stonewall where they also have a very attractive and welcoming clubhouse complex that will serve as the hub for this busy day. Fortunately, the Tom Doak-designed course has a very good "walkability" index and the tees for that day will reflect the shortest transfers between holes.
