Pat Hoppa

Pat plays golf wherever he finds himself. He sees the opportunity in any trip, whether business or personal, to capitalize on the chance to get out and find a local course and experience something new in the world of golf. Although he is sure to seek out any local course, his true passion lies in traveling with friends to notable destination courses throughout the US. His travels have taken him from coast to coast, and he’s made many great memories over the miles and years. Born and raised in Kansas, Pat currently lives in Prairie Village, KS and works as a tax manager for a CPA firm. When not golfing or working, he can be found enjoying a drink on a patio with his wife of five years, Sarah, grilling in the backyard, playing with their Pug, Manning, or taking in a Kansas Jayhawks basketball game. Although he has participated in several golf tournaments benefiting charitable organizations, Pat is excited to participate in the Hundred Hole Hike because it presents a unique opportunity to challenge himself physically and give back to the community through a nationwide event. He appreciates the fellowship that the game of golf provides and he looks forward to connecting with other hikers while supporting a great cause.

108 Done - One week later

Going into last Monday's HHH event, my expectations were all over the place.

In the beginning...

After spending weeks readying, organizing, and contemplating my hike benefiting Douglas County CASA, I completed my first practice round at Swope Memorial Golf Course yesterday morning.
