Imagination Rules in Golf Course Designs of Hamilton Mini-Golf Event

The laughs are plentiful and so are the “bribes” to the judges in the 12th Annual Hamilton Soroptimist Winter mini-golf tournament.

Held on Groundhog’s Day (or the nearest Saturday to it in many years), the event Saturday, February 2, transforms portions of downtown Hamilton businesses into golf greens for the 5-member teams that putt their way through 18 holes. Each business is allowed to creat their own “sand traps” and such, and the event runs from 9:30 a.m. to about 2 p.m. Saturday.

Teams can play with regular “best ball scramble” rules and registration for the team is $80. Or, for $55 registration, the team can play “Caddyshack” rules and bribe the hole judges (and there’s one at every hole) for lower scores. Another strict rule – one member of each team must be a designated driver. Adult beverages do appear occasionally. The money earned supports the community projects of the Soroptimists in Ravalli County.

By the way, with all the references to Bill Murray films “Caddyshack” and “Groundhog Day,” you should also know that Saturday is also National Bill Murray Appreciation Day!

You MUST PRE-REGISTER for the mini-golf event!

To register, call (406) 381-1335. The “clubhouse” is the Hamilton Eagles Lodge at the corner of Pinckney and North 2nd Streets.

Teams are encouraged to dress in costume, too. Prizes are awarded for best and worst scores, holes-in-one,  best costumes, and more.
