Ice Golf tournament takes over Mulhurst Bay

Pigeon Lake Chamber of Commerce hosts annual ice golf event

If golfers are looking for a hole in one during the 2018 Pigeon Lake Chamber of Commerce Ice Golf Tournament they may need to call upon the luck of the Irish.

The annual tournament is known for its not-so-subtle nod to St. Patrick’s Day, but with the event taking place on the actual St. Paddy’s date this year, Steve Richards, chair of the Ice Golf Committee, says celebrations are going to be even more focused than usual.

Each year the ice golf tournament is held as one of the chamber’s largest fundraisers, and this year it takes place March 17.

Golfers will begin their games at 1 p.m., with registration being held at the Mulhurst Bay Legion, starting at 11 p.m.

With more than 200 golfers looking to play on the three nine-hole courses, the fun begins with the blast of a cannon.

“This year will be interesting,” said Steve; a Civil War replica cannon coming from Thorsby will sound off to start the Texas scramble tournament.

Along with the actual golf tournament, Richards says there will be a couple of other games present on the ice; each hole five is a sponsored hole in one and golfers will be able to win the $10,000 prize.

Hot chocolate, bonfires and hole sponsors giving away prizes will help keep the golfers warm.

“The Cedar Crest (Inn restaurant) is going to have specials all day long,” said Richards. Following the tournament is a dinner banquet catered by Chef N’ Pigeon Lake.

The Mulhurst Bay Community Hall opens at 3 p.m. for the silent auction and live auction.

“It’s a day of fun and enjoyment,” said Richards.
