So you think you are a good golfer?  What do you think you could do with a balata, wound golf ball?  How about if you had to use a Solid Driver?  How about a Solid Wooden Driver?


Join us Thursday June 22, 2107 for the First Ever 1970's Golf Equipment Challenge at Moccasin Bend Golf Club.

Each Participant will be given a sleeve of 3 Balata Tour Golf Balls circa 1977.

All golfers must use actual wood drivers and fairway woods.  All tee shots on par 4 and par 5 holes must be hit with a wood (no irons from the tee).

No wedges over 56 degrees can be used.

The only putters allowed are heel shafted blades, center shafted (bullseye type) or Ping Anser design.

All participants will play  3 club lengths off the back edge of the back tee so that the course plays it's absolute longest possible length.

The point of this event is to allow us older golfers to remember the good ole days and also to allow younger golfers to get a taste of what swings were necessary to control a ball that wants to curve and baloon.

Besides braggin' rights, the winner will receive all proceeds over and above the combined player entrance fees minus golf and ball costs.

First Place Ties Will Be Played Off Sudden Death !

Tell Your Friends !  Sign Up Form Will Be Posted The Week After Memorial Day 2017

Sing Up Details Coming Soon
