Marathon golf at Bay Point funds Folds of Honor

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A day at the golf course is generally fun and laid back.

Bay Point Golf G.M. Ryan Mulvey and two of his golf professionals play 151 holes of golf for a great cause Thursday

Thursday at the Bay Point Nicklaus Course was definitely fun, but it was a lot faster and longer for one threesome.

Bay Point golf G.M. Ryan Mulvey, head professional Colby Pitts, and assistant pro Gavon Byrd all played marathon golf to raise money for Folds of Honor, a charitable organization which gives scholarship money to the kids of servicemen and women wounded or killed in action.

"It's is an absolutely fantastic organization," Mulvey said. "What we're doing out here today is playing as many holes as we possibly can and we've gotten tons of pledges from the local community, we've got pledges from people from all over the southeast. Last year we played 150 holes and we're gonna try to beat that this year."

Last year, Mulvey and company raised nearly five thousand dollars. They beat their record Thursday, playing 151 holes.
