Jester Park GC installed an 18-hole miniature golf course at the practice range facility in 2018.  Teams can play anytime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Sunday (June 16th) and are NOT required to play in the regular Father/Son-Parent/Child Championship.  So if you have a young one who isn’t quite ready for the big course, this is a way you can bring them into the fold!

The format will be alternate shot.  One player tees off first on the even numbered holes and the other player tees off first on the odd numbered holes, then you alternate strokes during the hole.  Teams will choose which person tees off on the even and odd holes before starting their round.

Once all play is finished, we will divide the field into flights based on their score.  The overall winners will receive trophies and flight winners will receive various prizes.
