Drive the Middle

The Drive the Middle contest hole event similar to a “Long Drive” event and it can be held at any charity golf outing hosted by a Birdies for Charity participating charity.

Any golfer (over 18) who makes a flat donation (minimum of $20) on a Birdies for Charity pledge card is eligible to participate.  Each participating golfer will have one opportunity to hit their drive closest to the middle of the fairway.  The golfer who comes the closest to the middle wins a Clubhouse ticket package to the John Deere Classic. 

The winner of each contest will also be entered into a drawing for a signed John Deere Classic tee marker.
*each charity outing may only submit ONE winner
