Between jumping on bouncy castles and trick-or-treating, kids get to enjoy the better things in life, but next weekend, the Copper Point Amusement Park will be home to an 18-hole mini golf tournament just for adults.
On Saturday, May 31st, Copper Point Amusement is lending its grounds to the Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley, which will benefit from the proceeds of the annual Adults Only Mini-Golf Tournament. Items have been donated by local sponsors for silent and toonie auctions, and all golfers both individually and as teams will be eligible for numerous prizes.
To tickle your ears while you putt, musical duo Marty and Eli will be taking the stage and when youre not on the greens, you can move to the music on the large dance area, or take it in at the fire pit. There will be a barbecue dinner for those in attendance, and the park is licensed to sell alcohol.
This tournament will be the third year Copper Point Amusement Park donates its grounds to the Kinsmen Club.
For the golfers or non-golfer, this provides an opportunity for them to get a club and hit a ball around its a way to just get out there and try your hand at golf, said Copper Point Amusement owner Diana Cote.
But the 18-hole course is still a good challenge, she said, with many enticing obstacles.
Its one of the most beautiful courses there are waterways, flowers and gardens throughout.
The event begins at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $25 per person, and teams need to have four to six players. Entry includes green fees, raffle entries, a goodie bag, and a hot dog. To register your team or find out more, contact Trisha Wilson at 250-688-0711.
