The golf season returns from winter hiatus in the Pocono Mountains, Pa. on Sunday, January 30 when the 20th Annual Ice Tee Golf Tournament takes place on the frozen fairways of Lake Wallenpaupack in Hawley, Pa.
“For the golf enthusiast who can’t get away, the Ice Tee Golf Tournament makes for a fun, great alternative,” said President/CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau Carl Wilgus. “We’re very proud to see this special event reach its 20th anniversary. It’s a credit to the local organizing committee and community that participate in making it happen and continue to grow.”
Two nine-hole courses are created in the center of the lake, complete with Christmas-tree lined fairways and makeshift greens, water traps, obstacles and rough. Holes can be up to 130 yards long and golfers receive a colored golf ball, plus a scorecard and map illustrating the course layout. Each player is restricted to using two clubs and a putter for the event.
Golfers can also take their shot to win prizes in the “Closest to Wally the Snowman” long-drive contest as well as win awards for Wackiest Hat, Best Sled and others.
Tee times run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and “green fees” are a non-refundable donation of $15 per person in advance or $20 on the day of the event.
