This is a pitch and putt style 3 par 12 hole course. We have a limited amount of tee off times so start rallying your team of four. Or if you want to enter as a single person or a duo let us know and we can pair you up with other groups. Remember balls and clubs are an additional charge at the event; you may bring your own.
