hendo100 LOGOHENDERSON, Ky. (3/20/14) — The second annual Hendo 100 Golf Marathon will offer the region’s golfers a rare challenge when it’s held April 28 at Henderson Country Club.

The challenge to attempt to play 100 holes in a single day.

The first Hendo 100 was held last year and drew 16 participants, each of whom completed the 100 holes. To be certain there was enough daylight to finish, players were allowed to play multiple balls on multiple holes. But this year players wills only be allowed to play multiple balls on par-3s.

“We wanted to make the Hendo 100 2014 more of a physical test,” said Brad Schneider, a board member of the Kyndle Education Foundation, the Hendo 100’s beneficiary. "Not many golfers can say they played what amounts to five-and-a-half rounds in a single day. But everyone who played last year enjoyed the challenge and made it through unscathed.”

  • The field is limited to 18 players and their caddies.
  • Carts can be used and entrants are provided breakfast, lunch, a generous goodie bag, a golf shirt and a T-shirt.
  • The player with the lowest total score in relation to par and the player who raises the most money both win special awards.

Last year Jack Hudson shot even par over 100 holes to win the low-score title, while Marty Wohadlo of Audubon Metals was the top fundraiser.

The entry fee for the Hendo 100 equals at least $1,000 in sponsorships.

“That sounds like a lot, but it’s really only getting 10 people to each sponsor you for $1 a hole,” Schneider said, who noted that all sponsorships are tax deductible.

The Kyndle Education Foundation supports the Imagination Library program in Henderson County, which provides books to nearly 900 local children ages newborn through five regardless of their families’ means.

The foundation also provides support for other initiatives that aid education programs or youth in the region. The foundation is the charitable arm of Kyndle, which provides business support services and economic development expertise for Henderson, Union, Webster and McLean counties.
