Honma Charity Raffle Pick Up Your Pro

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

There are a ton of wonderful and worthwhile causes going on in the world right now that deserve our attention. In the grand scale, this one's not at the peak, but it is aimed at people who are hurting. 

The PGA of America has started the Emergency Golf Relief Fund to provide short-term financial assistance to members of the workforce who've been affected by the Covid-19 shutdown - that includes everyone from groundskeepers to kitchen staff to the pro and his staff. 

Honma has put together some pretty cool packages - for a donation you can be entered into a raffle. For example, for a $50 donation you can be entered to win a TR20 driver and TR20 P or TR20 V iron package - it includes the driver, a full set of irons, two wedges and a Honma golf bag. There's a $25 entry donation for an XP-1, either irons, hybrids, 2 wedges and a bag or 1 driver, 1 fairway, 2 hybrids and a bag. 

If you're into the big money Beres line, for $100 you can center to win two different packages (driver/fw/hybrid or 7-piece iron set, hybrid and bag); or enter to win other prizes like a vintage Honma club package, a Honma Mobile Van fitting Experience - (@pmookie can tell you all about that!) or an Ultimate Honma fitting Experience ($100 entry includes airfare, hotel, fitting, equipment and golf at the Reunion Resort in Florida). Both fitting experiences include $2,500 worth of equipment.

The program ends next Thursday, and I'm astonished at how few entries there are. As of right now, only one person has entered town the Reunion Fitting Experience and 6 entries have been sold for the mobile fitting experience. 


Anyway, checkout out if you're so inclined - if you think of it as a charity raffle, the odds are pretty good on some of these.

I threw my name in a couple days ago, good cause and great possible prize!   Hey I once spent $100 raffle on a chance to win a $300,000 townhome, so this isn't that bad 🙂

Could be several factors - poor marketing and.... the economy in the country has been wrecked for no rational and factual reason. People everywhere are hurting. $50 or $100 in your pocket means a lot to millions of people these days. As in keeping food and shelter. Kudos for the PGA and Honma for trying. Can't hurt. We did a cash drive (no gifts or prizes - just donate) at our club to be distributed to all employees. I've heard it's been substantial but I don't know the final results.

My Sun Mountain bag currently includes:   TWGTLogo2.png.06c802075f4d211691d88895b3f34b75.png 771CSI 5i - PW and TWGTLogo2.png.06c802075f4d211691d88895b3f34b75.png PFC Micro Tour-c 52°, 56°, 60 wedges

If I wasn't currently looking at the auction for our local First Tee I'd be all over this. Some awesome opportunities.
