Area golfers have the opportunity to play a unique round of golf and win a turkey just in time for Thanksgiving. Sunday, November 15, Forrest Creason Golf Course hosts the Inaugural Turkey Open. The layout of the course differs for the scramble event compared to the usual format, and the winning team receives a turkey.
The four-person scramble is not a typical round of 18 or 9 holes of golf. Instead, the Inaugural Turkey Open consists of 12-hole, cross country golf.
“We have made up 12 new holes,” said Director of Golf at Forrest Creason Golf Course Kurt Thomas. “For example, we will tee off on top of the hill and go to the 13th green and tee off on the 14th hole and go to the seventh green. We will also have some interesting pin placements to make it more challenging.”
Entry into the Inaugural Turkey Open is limited to 12 teams of four people. According to Thomas, those participating can expect “a new experience on the course with a lot of fun and socializing.”
The cost of the Inaugural Turkey Open is $50 per team and includes golf, a cart, and prizes. The event begins with a shotgun start at noon. Entry is limited, so interested teams should sign up soon. Entry forms are available by the visiting the Forrest Creason Golf Course Web site.
