One of, if not the most, popular tournaments we have here every season. It sells out a month in advance and this year had a waiting list of nearly 20 teams. One of my biggest peeves in the world of golf is the old school stuffiness of the ways of golf. Gimmick golf is usually frowned upon and looked down on. That is one of the many reasons I love my golf course. If you can't have fun, than what are we really doing here? This tournament has turned into an event that people look forward to all year. My GM Chris Buescher and Assistant Pro Karter Mills and I have created a layout that we and the people that play just rave about. We try to add something new each year which isn't easy to do. The setup of the course takes between 2 and 3 hours to do on the morning of the tournament. It does involve some stress and the weather conditions in late October do create some issues. Through this series of pictures I will outline some of the holes we set up for this event. Yes, I know not every hole is on here, we have to leave some stuff for the imagination! Do yourself a favor, sign up and play in this event next season. You will have a great time!!

Hole #1 - Grim Reaper
Hit your tee shot around this 20 foot obstruction. (Yes, it gets hit)
Hole #2 - Range balls all over the Green
Hit your tee shot close on this Par 3 or your putting could be a struggle!
Hole #3 - Scarecrow's
This Par 4 plays a bit tougher with the scarecrows guarding a flag-less hole location!
Hole #4 - Extra long Par 3
Tee box behind the pond playing 220 yards into a hard green with a tricky pin location!
Hole #5 - Lots-O-Holes
This Par 4 green is a treat with 6 cups...putt to the closest hole to your ball!
Hole #6 - Don't Get Hosed
A hose surrounding the hole makes for a strategic approach shot with only one way in!

A shortened Par 4 with water lurking in front of the green...GO FOR IT!
Hole #8 - Big Cup
An 8 inch cup to putt to on this green!
Hole #9 - The Graveyard
A few head stones and some bones laying around makes putting a challenge!

The green is blocked with an aged groups carts and the hole location is difficult!
Hole #13 - Make It In The Boat
This short Par 4 has a different type of hole...you must make your ball in the boat to hole out!

Putting is a bit tougher with only 3 ways into the hole and the tire coving your view!

A 15 inch cup to putt to...like putting into the ocean!
