Golfing and Beer
Posted by Casey on September 30, 2007
Last Saturday the Sacramento Eagles of the National Golf League hosted a golf tournament and a brewfest called “Suds on the Green.” It was a good idea–if Mother Nature had cooperated a little more.
It was raining pretty hard in the morning, which didn’t stop the golfers.
The Sacramento Sirens had a tent and many of them showed up after playing some flag football with the Sacramento’s Women’s Flag Football Association. The Sirens had on their jerseys and whooped it up every time the Sacramento Eagles played the ninth hole.
They even tried to win a $1000 with a 25-foot putt. No one made the putt and the $1000 went to The First Tee of Greater Sacramento.
Meanwhile, the rain put a damper on the brewfest . . .
At least for a while. The rain stopped and the sun even peeked out from behind the clouds every once in a while. More people showed up for the brewfest and they were invited to rather around the ninth hole, every time a pair of teams passed through.
Of course, they were well lubricated with alcohol and would have whooped and hollered for any thing remotely entertaining.
Meanwhile, the golfers were actually trying to golf . . .
It actually turned out to be a fun day. They were expecting thousands rather than hundreds of people to attend the brewfest . But the people who showed up as the weather cleared seemed to enjoy the novel approach to golf.
The East Bay Power won and the Sacramento Eagles took second place.
