Still Time to Get in on Ben Cox Raffle


Even now that the Ben Cox 108+ hole marathon is over, you can still donate now and get into the July 9th raffle. You just need to get your money in by the July 8th deadline in order to be eligible to win one of the 82 incredible golf prizes.

If you've been following the raffle closely, you know that it jumpstarted with a series of big-name courses such as Merion, The Olympic Club and Riviera. In the past week, even more of most well-known and desirable courses have been added to the pool, such as Pebble Beach, Whistling Straits and Harbour Town, and the list has exploded from there.  Check out the by-the-number breakdowns below. If you're a serious golfer, you simply have to a) throw in $50 or $100 for a chance to win and b) e-mail all of your golfing friends to tell them about it.

The raffle will take place at Ballyneal the evening of July 9th. It will work similar to the NBA draft lottery, with the order of the picks being drawn. I will notify the winners on July 9th of which pick they received, then will work with the winners over the following week or so to determine which of the remaining items they'd like to select when it's their turn to pick.

- 9 Future Major Sites, including 6 of the 8 future U.S. Open sites
- 2 Future Walker Cup Sites
