Yee Haw! Welcome to Cowboy Pete’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Pingolf Course at PAPA. The course will be open on Thursday, March 27th, 2014. This course is the most challenging within 2001 miles of Chartiers Creek, tougher than sister’s flank steak.
Pingolf is a tournament format where each machine has a target point score. The number of balls played to reach the target score is the number of “strokes” the player used to finish the hole.
Will you freak out like Happy Gilmore as your tee shot ends up in the shadow of the dark jungle down the fairway? Will you curse like Roy Avoy after dunking eight balls into the huge water hazards in front of our greens? Or will you be a Cinderella Story like Carl Spackler after you bash a mystical shot to the stars and park your ball in the hole?
Bring your foursome to the course and drive, chip, and putt your way to victory. Registration will begin at 11am with tee times every 15 minutes from noon to 6. If you don’t have a foursome, we will help you find one. The 16 players with the lowest number of strokes to complete the course will qualify for finals. Finals will be another round through the course, with total score deciding the victor.
The cost of this once in a year experience is $10. All of the proceeds will be split between the Barry Oursler and Python Anghelo Fund Raising charities. WPPR points will be awarded. Good Luck. You’re gonna need it.
Official Rules (Thanks to Molly and Pins and Needles for the Guide)
– Players will be put in groups of 4. Each player plays for the target score indicated on the score card. The number of balls played to reach the target score will be counted as “Strokes”
– Each game will count as one hole played. When the group is done on a hole it will move on down to the next one. Each round will be 9 games (holes)
– The 9 games will be a mix of DMD, SS & EM
– There is a course maximum of 6 Pin-Strokes per Pin-Hole. Should you not Pin-reach the Pin-Target Score after playing 5 Pin-balls, record a Pin-score of 6 and move on to the next Pin-Hole.
– If a player earns an extra ball, this will not be counted as an additional Pin-Stroke, but rather as a continuation of the current ball being played.
– Keep things moving and play your turns promptly. If a player passes the Target Score, they must stop play immediately. Excessively continuing to play a turn after passing the target score will count as a penalty stroke. If others still need to play more turns, plunge and drain immediately.
– Like golf, the player with the lowest score at a Pin-Hole takes the honor of playing first on the following Pin-Hole. The competitor with the second lowest score plays next and so on. If two or more competitors have the same score at a Pin-Hole, they play in the same order as the previous Pin-Hole.
– Tilting a game where the tilt ends the game (example: Target Pool) will result in a maximum score of 6 strokes for that hole.
– Tilting someone else’s ball will result in a maximum score of 6 strokes for that hole.
– Playing someone else’s ball will result in a maximum score of 6 strokes for that hole.
– Bang backs and death saves are not allowed.
– Anyone cheating or intentionally slam tilting will be disqualified.
