About GKM


What's it all about?

Michael Murphy’s Golf in the Kingdom Marathon (GKM) offers golfers a chance to give back to the world while doing something that they love–play golf!
Designed as a fundraising event for ITP International (ITPI), the non profit that stewards Michael Murphy and George Leonard’s pioneering program, Integral Transformative Practice®, GKM will be lots of fun for golfers—duffer and pros—and invaluable for ITPI.

Integral Transformative Practice

Created as a long-term, sustainable practice that integrates and transforms body, mind, heart and soul, ITP helps cultivate high-performance capacity, skillful communications and creative problem solving. Other benefits include increased vitality, clear decision-making and resiliency under pressure.
ITPI offers a wide range of programs, coaching and consulting services for individuals, groups and businesses in the U.S. and around the world.

How the Game is Played

  • Golfers play 18 holes in 4-5 person scrambles. The best of the tee shots are selected and all take their second shots from that spot. This continues with each shot until a ball goes into the hole. In a special ITP modification, each golfer gets to play up to 2 balls on every shot!
  • At designated Mystery Holes, golfers can expect the unexpected.
  • Hole-In-One contest with $25,000 cash prize.
  • Carts, range balls and box lunches are provided for golfers.
  • Prizes will be awarded for the longest drive, closest to the pin and whacky things like best hacker, most integral player and strangest shot.
