Think 1972. The year that Big Canoe was born. Bell bottoms, stripes, brightly colored rayon, and tie-dye are golfer style. As an official event of the Big Canoe 50th Anniversary celebration, you are invited to find some era-appropriate golfing wear (or something close) and come ready to play some Groovy Golf! 70's style attire is not a requirement.... but there will be prizes for "best" dressed!
Groovy Golf will be a 9 hole co-ed scramble event open to all Big Canoe golfers. This is designed to be a fun, themed tournament format, so let’s have a great time! But…. there are prize monies, so bring your “A” game! Plus, there will be an after party at the end of the day to celebrate.
