Take a break in the Netherworld club house, pull up your socks and straighten your golf cap, it's time to play Pin-Golf.
On the weekend of October 9th & 10th, you're invited to tour the Netherworld greens across 18 holes of brisk pinball challenges. At your own pace, you'll try to achieve unique goals on each pinball machine with the aim to get under par. Each ball is an extra stroke, so achieving the goal on your first ball is a hole in 1.
Come down anytime on Saturday the 9th from 9am to 6pm to participate and qualify! The finals will be held on Sunday from 9am featuring the best dressed 16 players with the lowest stroke count.
Wear your finest golf attire to earn yourself a free drink in the Club House.
Bountiful prizes for the top 3 places, including our 2021 Netherworld pennants and a cash prize for 1st place! Each ticket comes with entry, your first drink, your scorecard and 18 Netherworld games tokens (1 per hole).
Pin Golf is an IFPA approved event.
Tickets ($30 each) can be grabbed from events.humanitix.com/nwpingolf
