On June 21st Alec Hubert started at 4:12am golfing 289 holes finishing at 10:06pm. Alec beat his personal best Golfathon record of 288 holes by one hole this year with 289.With a 1 hour and 7 minutes per round average, Alec raced around the course raising funds for ALS. With a collective score of 14 over par, 41 birdies and 1 eagle, Alec had a great day on the course.

“My best scoring in prior years was 21 under par, but it was windy this year, so it made for more difficult scoring conditions.  Still happy with 14 over.  Best round was 69 (8th lap of the day), worst round was 77 (my last of the day)” said Alec Hubert General Manager at Kamloops Golf & Country Club

Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers provided by the ALS Society of BC.

Help support your local golf professionals to raise awareness and funds for the ALS Society of BC.

About ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that affects the person’s motor neurons that carry messages to the muscles resulting in weakness and wasting in arms, legs, mouth, throat and elsewhere; typically the person is immobilized within two to five years of the initial diagnosis. There is no known cause or cure yet, but there is hope through the ALS Society of BC.
