It wasn’t the longest day of the year for golfers, but it probably seemed like it to Brad Woods and Braden Chown.

The two golfers played more than 160 holes during the ALS Golf-A-Thon earlier this month at the Balfour Golf Course.

Woods, the club professional at Balfour, and Chown, a former star on the Zone One West Kootenay Junior Golf curcuit, teed off on the first hole at 4:48 a.m.

More than 15 hours later — at 8:30 p.m. to precise — the duo tapped in the last ball in the hole to complete the 162 holes.

All proceeds from the event goes to ALS. To date the pair have raise more than $900 for ALS research.

Anyone wanting to donate to the cause has until July 16th.

For more information contact the Balfour Pro Shop at 250-226-5655.

* Next tournament at Balfour is Wednesday when seniors from throughout the region flock to the course to compete in the annual Retirees Invitational Tournament.
