Our motto is “Bad Pants for a Great Cause” with an emphasis on fashionable fun. The tournament will feature an 18-hole, foursome scramble format. We will have prizes based on your apparel and team spirit – every golfer is encouraged to wear their best “bad” pants, knickers, shorts, kilt or skirt. Each golfer will receive a gift, cart, lunch, food and beverages on the course, and more at the beautiful Rush Creek Golf Club.
