We’re only 2 weeks away from our Foot Golf event! I need to give the course final numbers a few days beforehand though, so if you’re on the fence about attending, make the decision and buy your spot! There are couple things have changed since the original post, so I’ll go over it all here again.
This event will be at Coyote Creek Golf (http://eaglequestgolf.com/locations/coyote-creek/), and at Big Ridge Brewing.
The Whitecaps play in Houston at 6:00pm, so we’ll tee-off at 2:30pm (originally 2pm, this time changed) so that the last group is done by 5:00, giving everyone lost of time to make it to Big Ridge to watch the match. Unfortunately Big Ridge’s shuttle is no longer in service, but we will make sure there’s enough vehicles to provide everyone transportation. We can also make arrangements for transport to/from Skytrain if necessary.
As the name implies, this is Foot Golf rather than normal golf. Also know as Soccer Golf. Kick a soccer ball at a giant hole in the green!
Cost is only $15 per person (Originally $35). Add another $10 if you want a power cart.
Things to note about foot golf:
– You’ll need to bring your own soccer ball.
– No soccer cleats permitted; just running shoes. Golf cleats “might” be Ok, but I’d have to confirm.
– We’ll “golf” in groups of 6.

Once we’ve all finished golfing, we’ll adjourn to Big Ridge to watch the game.
Big Ridge has been generous to obtain a couple casks for us (one of their own, and one from Black Kettle), and they’ll be tapping them at 5:30pm. Big Ridge is also going to be hosting this as a fund raiser for our charitable causes committee, so hopefully we get a good turnout to raise some money!
We’ll likely have a raffle/auction, a 50-50, and of course various prizes for the best score/worst score/best dressed golfer of the day.
Feel free to reach out to me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on Twitter (@rmrgcb) if you have any questions at all. Finally, here’s a link to the forum discussion on this event. (http://vancouversouthsiders.ca/forum/discussion/4883/august-29th-foot-golf-event)
Hope to see you all there!
