On the longest day of daylight of the year, Craig Wilkinson and Braden Chown gained a few blisters on their golfing hands.

The two Balfour golfers played for 15 hours on the Balfour Golf Course to to raise awareness and funds for ALS, which is a rapidly progressive
neuromuscular disease that can affect anyone at any time.

The Balfour duo played from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and golfed a total of 360 holes.

Combined, the golf professionals got 72 birdies and 6 eagles. The pair raised around $1,800 and are still accepting donations for the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.

“It was a great day,” Wilkinson said.

Balfour Golf Course is one of 37 golf courses located across BC participating in the PGA of B.C. Golfathon for ALS.
