Time To Get BAD And Be Proud Of It!

By Staff | May 29, 2013

Since Christmas is a ways off and it’s reported that Santa is dozing, everyone in the area is invited and actually encouraged to be BAD on Friday, June 7.

The 14th Annual B.A.D. Golf event promises to provide everyone with the perfect opportunity to blow the dust and cobwebs from the clubs, loosen up the golf swing, and prepare for an afternoon of fun and fellowship. The only catch is, you have to promise to be BAD and enjoy it!

BAD Golf is sponsored annually by the Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce, with this year’s event set for next Friday, June 7 at the Five Island Golf Club in Emmetsburg. But don’t let the name fool you however – BAD Golf actually stands for Business Appreciation Day. The event is open to golfers of all skills and abilities.

The BAD Golf tournament is a nine-hole, best-shot format with numerous prizes being awarded. Emmetsburg’s Fellowship Uniting Emerging Leaders, or FUEL program, will be hosting a Par 3 Poker Challenge during this year’s BAD golf outing, with cards being drawn at registration, on holes 2, 6 & 8 and then again at the clubhouse on completion of your 9 holes. There is a fee to play the poker challenge with the prize being half the cash entry fees with the other half going to FUEL Emmetsburg for their budget and events.

Holes in the tournament are sponsored by area businesses, that receive incentives for their level of sponsorship support, ranging from a free registration for a four-person team down to a free registration for a single golfer.

All golfers playing in BAD Golf XIV will receive a ticket upon registration to enter in the grand prize drawing for a 50″ Panasonic Plasma TV! There will also be flight prizes for the top three levels of four two-day RoseFest passes at the Wild Rose Casino and Resort and Chamber Bucks as well as prizes for all attendees.

Registration begins at 2:30 p.m. on Friday with a shotgun start at 3 p.m.

Palo Alto County Cattlemen will serve ribeye steak sandwiches.

Proceeds from the event got to the Chamber’s yearly Community Beautification efforts.

To sign up your four-person teams or to sponsor a hole, contact the Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce at 712-852-2283. In case of inclement weather, BAD Golf will take place on Friday, June 14.
