DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – Can you imagine playing golf for 24-straight hours?
Some may call it a dream – others a nightmare – but people at a Durham golf course call it a fundraiser.
Karl Kimball is the director of golf operations of Hillandale Golf Course and just wrapped up 24-straight hours of golf around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
It is all a way to raise money and awareness for the Folds of Honor Foundation .
Folds of Honor provides scholarships and assistance to the children of injured and fallen members of the military.
Kimball’s goal was to play more than 350 holes of golf during the 24-hour period.
It wasn’t leisurely despite all that time.
Kimball said some people will sponsor the event by hole played.
“So, that’s why I’m playing as fast as I can. The more holes I play, the deeper in their pocket I go. So, that’s what I’m trying to do,” he said.
Kimball also created this “Fairway of Honor” at Hillandale to raise people’s awareness for the cause.
It lists 191 names of fallen North Carolina military members.
