Ice Golf 2013


It’s that time of year. Ready? Set. FORE!

In a tradition dating back many years, a bunch of crazy Jaycees will again grab a golf club and a tennis ball and head out to Menominee Park for a day on the lake!

A (hopefully) frozen Millers Bay will be the setting for another round of Ice Golf on Sunday, February 17. We’ll start the morning with a warm-up at St. Thomas Bar at 8:30 AM (693 N. Main St.). We’ll head to the park by 9:30 AM, play nine “holes”, and then go to The Varsity Club (570 N. Main St.) somewhere for lunch.

Bring a golf club and a tennis ball marked as yours, and prepare to have a great time! Beverages won’t be provided at the game, but you are welcome bring your own (warm or cold) to fill up the bar-ski. Invite your friends!

Meet at St. Tommy’s on Main Street. See you there!
