LGA Fall Fling
Each fall as the leaves begin to turn and the weather gets a bit chilly, the HPLGA holds its Fall Fling, a silly, fun-filled tournament with a costume-themed dinner to follow. Golfers confront all sorts of challenges during the event: putting through a spider’s legs, through lidless cans which encircle the hole, even a toilet seat with only one entrance to the hole. On one hole, the flag, which typically waves gaily from the hole, waves far from the actual hole. It’s all fun and games for this end-of-the-golfing-season tournament.
Later, creatively costumed players meet for a fun-filled evening of dinner and prizes. Skeletons, monsters, flappers, butterflies, bumblebees and others compete for “Best Costume.” Tournament winners get chits for items in the pro shop, and each player on the “Farthest From First” team is awarded a lesson with Jimmy, our golf pro.
