Surrey pastor John Burns will attempt – for the second straight year – to golf 100 holes at Peace Portal Golf Course in a single day.

Surrey pastor to golf 100 holes in a day

Surrey pastor John Burns is at it again.

A year after he golfed 100 holes in a single day at Peace Portal Golf Course, the 58-year-old is doing it again, as a way to raise money for Mercy Ministries Canada.

Burns and golf pro Jodi Reimer achieved the feat last summer, completing 100 holes – on foot – in 11-and-a-half hours. The pair walked the equivalent of 30 miles.

They’ll attempt to do it again next Monday, June 11.

Mercy Ministries is a residential counselling program that aims to help women in need. While they have space for as many as 20 women at a time, Burns said funding allows for just 12.

“I will do whatever it takes to see that change… including putting myself through this crazy golf-a-thon,” said Burns, pastor at Relate Church in Surrey.

So far, Burns has collected more than $50,000 in sponsorships for this year’s event. For more, visit or
