We’re making golf a year-round activity with a winter golf tournament (yes, outside!).


https://www.facebook.com/events/568692148202964


Dress warm for this 9-hole shotgun event. We’ll play like regular golf, but instead of putting, your ball will need to hit an object to be counted as "in the hole."

After we play, we’ll enjoy a chili lunch and hand out awards. Golfers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to play in this fun event!

$30/person

Event FAQ

Am I really playing golf outside in the snow? Absolutely! Golfers are encouraged to wear winter clothes such as jackets, snow pants, gloves, hats, etc., as if you were skiing!

Do I need to bring all my clubs? No! 3-5 clubs should be plenty, as the holes are shortened and no putter is needed.

Is this played like regular golf? Yes and no. The biggest difference is there won't be a hole to putt your ball into, rather an object your ball needs to hit for your shot to be counted as in the hole.

"No snow" date will be February 25, 2023

Helloooooooo love birds.

As far as we know, no ones getting married, unlesssssss?

Here’s the deal, let’s all dress as a bride, groom, bridesmaid, groomsmen, ringbearer or flowergirl, perhaps a priest, can I get an amen? Whatever you want to dress up that passes as a “Wedding Party” we’re down to clown.

Oh yes, we’ll have Ring Pops and a few drink specials for y’all

9PM: wedding party starts with a wedding cake cutting ceremony

10PM: dance floor opens up

11:59PM: garter & bouquet toss

1:00AM: wedding toasts, your best friend, your dog, we don’t care, toast to someone or something you love

Yes, we’ve had quite a few wedding parties here. Want to host your party (of any occasion) with us here? We’d love to have you, reach out here. $5 entrance unless dressed up like you're in the wedding party =]
