Pete Monaco

I am 38 years old and the proud father of 2 boys (Jake - 8 and Brendan - 4). I am extremely lucky to have 2 healthy and happy kids. I am married to the most amazing woman (Alexis), who is partly to blame for my joining this insanity. This will be my fifth Hundred Hole Hike, and I am as excited as ever! I have been playing golf since I was 14 and the first time I played I fell in love with the game. My goal is to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation of CT to give kids the opportunity to forget about their ailments and struggles and to be truly happy, as well as make unforgettable memories for their families.

I'm supporting

2015 Hike

So this will be my fourth year participating in the HHH. On July 30th, I will be hiking at Greenwich Country Club to support Make-A-Wish Foundation of CT!

T minus 9 hours.

9 hours away from my 3rd Hundred Hole Hike! The pledges are in, the car is packed and we are ready to go. I can't wait to play this year with Jason and Mark!

Away we go!

Less than 9 hours until I tee it up for my 108. Not sure I am going to reach my goal I 108, but will give it everything I've got. I am nervous and excited all in one.

Crazy Spring and Why Make a Wish?

Ok, what a crazy spring it has been.

100 Hole Hike Recap

What a long, grueling, amazing and gratifying day. I woke up at 3am, showered, got dressed and started the drive down to Laurel View Country Club. I arrived at Laurel View around 4:15am.


Looks like rain for my hike. Guess I better bring a lot of clothes.

Why Make a Wish?

Many people have asked me why I am hiking for Make a Wish. As a father of 2 young boys, I can only hope they can make an impact like this 4 year old girl has.

Let the training begin!

Training starts Monday to prepare for this grueling adventure. I am honored to be playing for such a tremendous charity (Make a Wish Foundation of CT).
