The first Glow Ball Golf tournament at The Fortress was held on Friday, July 15, 2011 with 56 people participating. Congratulations to the winning foursome, Matt and Paul Ostby, Dave Mohn and Mark Holmes with a score of six under par! A remarkable six under for five holes!
What is Glow Ball? First of all, the game is played at nighttime with no carts. Each team is allowed to have a total of only four clubs, a flashlight and 4 glowing golf balls. Each participant wore a glow stick necklace and each green was marked by glow sticks. Holes 10, 11, 7, 8 and 9 were the holes of choice because they are the closest to the Clubhouse.
Everyone had a great time and we received very positive feedback. With that in mind, our next Glow Ball event is scheduled for August 19, 2011. The price is $30 per person, which includes golf and Hors D’oeuvres. If you would like to sign up for the event, please call the Golf Shop at 989-652-0460 or 800-863-7999, ext. 460. We look forward to seeing you at the next Glow Ball tournament!
