BAD Golf IX Set For Friday

By Staff | May 15, 2008

A golf outing designed strictly for fun and fellowship is closing in, and the only prerequisite is that you be a BAD golfer!

The Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce’s Ninth Annual BAD Golf Outing is set for this Friday, May 16, at the Wild Rose Golf Club in Emmetsburg. 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 – three person teams are paired according to skill level, so it is very important that golfers report an accurate handicap or recent golf score when registering for the event.

BAD Golf Chairs Mary Cooper, Rick Jones and Doug Welander BAD Golf VII is a nine-hole, best-shot format, with numerous prizes being awarded. Prizes include a longest drive award, shortest drive, longest putt and closest to the pin contest for all golfers.

Holes in the tournament are sponsored by area businesses. Past hole sponsors have given away colored golf balls or perhaps offered “enticements” or “distractions” to participants in the course of the event.

Registration for BAD Golf VII will begin at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 16, at the Wild Rose Golf Club, with the tournament starting off a shotgun start at 3 p.m. At the conclusion of the tournament, a catered dinner will be offered in the clubhouse, where prizes will be presented to the winners. Participants in BAD Golf IX have the choice of golfing and enjoying the dinner; choosing to golf, or just to attend dinner.

Advance registration would be appreciated, but you may also register the day of the outing at the Wild Rose Clubhouse.

The original BAD Golf outing began back in 1999 as a way of bringing business people and area residents together for an afternoon of fellowship and has grown into a very popular activity of the Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce.
