Drinking and Golfing for a Good Cause

The Barstool Open, a series of national charity events, combines two favorite leisure time activities into one stumblingly entertaining fundraising extravaganza. Think pub crawl with putters. Most of the events benefit United Cerebral Palsy, but I found one in Minnesota whose proceeds are given to the Special Olympics.

Golfers hitting the links and the drinks at the Kansas City Open.

Decatur, IL already hosted its 2007 event which had 828 participants and raised more than $30,000 for United Cerebral Palsy. The Herald and Review provides some details of the alcohol soaked fun:

The Barstool Open involves a series of miniature golf rounds played by teams who are shuttled or driven by designated drivers between 28 bars and restaurants in the Decatur area. Each business builds its own creative golf hole to test the skill of the players, who even get to vote on their favorite challenge.

You may just find yourself doing the golf club limbo after a few rounds of drink and golf.

If you would like to participate, other Barstool Opens are taking place in: Kansas City (February 24th), Lincoln, Nebraska (simultaneous events on February 24th taking place at two different sets of bars), Omaha, Nebraska (February 10th), Erie, Pennsylvania (February 24), and Minneapolis (February 10th). Those are the Opens I could find, check your local area to see if one is taking place close to where you live. All of the events with the exception of Minneapolis' benefits United Cerebral Palsy.

Since this is a mini golf site, I thought I'd draw attention to the greatest mini golf in existence. Or should I say, nonexistence?

I haven't played mini golf in a long time. We had plans to go this past weekend but they fell through. Everyone was wanting to go too.

Very cool. We did a whole mini golf tour one summer, checking out the largest mini courses. Super fun. Keep it up.

I'm not very good at mini golf but it is pretty fun. There was a mini golf place in my home town that was glow in the dark. Mini golf arenas are always so creative.
