Extended Bio

My name is Norm Olsen and like most of us hikers I am obsessed with the game of golf. I was born and raised in Chicago and was introduced to the sport by my dad at the age of 8.

Mission Accomplished

This past Monday I had the incredible, life-altering experience of playing 145 holes of golf at Flossmoor CC! My day began with a crude wake-up call from my Blackberry at 3:01 am.

144 Holes, Why Not?

So I've decided to make the Hundred Hole Hike even more arduous than it already is by raising my goal from 108 holes to 144 holes.

Why do 108 when you can do 144?

Well my HHH training is going about as expected with 3 kids and a busy job...it isn't.

Happy Memorial Day HHH Squad!

With only 3 weeks to go before my inaugural hike, I figured I was long overdue for a blog update. For any golfer with 3 small kids, this was a perfect day.

Inaugural Blog for My HHH 2013 Adventure

This is my inaugural blog, and not just for my Hundred Hole Hike journey!

108 Holes Later

I have officially completed the Hundred Hole Hike and am proud to announce that I achieved my goal of walking 108 holes in 1 day!


The first Hundred Hole Hike event ever, at Flossmoor Country Club outside Chicago, was a huge success.

Training/Prep Update

I am getting a late start at the HHH training/preparation but from here on its go time. The first few days of HHH preparation have been quite a success.
