About GPM


GPM helps non-profit organizations host extremely successful events by implementing our unique Peer-To-Peer fundraising format.

The net proceeds dramatically outpace traditional golf fundraisers, because

People Support People!

The number one reason why these events do so well is due to the simple fact that People Give Because They Are Asked By Someone They Know.

We take great pride in coming alongside and partnering with groups to make fundraising Fun, Simple, & Successful!

Our first fundraising event with Golf PRO Marathons was a tremendous success for our organization and great fun for the players. The 30-golfer field raised over $78,000, with a generous matching grant pushing the event total to over $156,000. We’re excited about partnering with Jim Coles and his team for our next fundraiser.”

I appreciate Jim’s hands-on approach and especially the way he helped us recruit participants early in each fundraising campaign. It was a blessing to raise a total of $500,000 in five events.”
