The Prince Rupert Golf Club is getting casual.

Recently, the course has started offering Thursday Night Drop-in Golf, a program offered to golfers of any age or skill level.

For $15 per golfer, and session fees of $5, players will have a chance at winning money from a contribution of $2 to the “low” team, $2 to the “high” team, $1 toward the “money putt”, and $1 to the “hidden hole”.

Tee-off times are from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and players will play nine holes of golf and total their scores afterwards with no handicap to determine the total low and high scores.

The money putt comes from five drawn numbers from a bucket and will get a chance to make a long putt set up on the putting green. Winning putters will split the pot, or if no one sinks the challenging putt, the money will carry over to the next Thursday.

Birdies will win you the “hidden hole” challenge with participants drawing numbers for a random hole they must score a birdie on. The same rules apply if there are multiple winners or no winners, as the money putt.

“It’s just a fun, new event open to everyone, of all skill levels” said club manager Judy Fraser.

More information can be found at the Prince Rupert Golf Course’s pro shop or on the club’s Facebook page at Prince Rupert Golf Club.

The Men’s Club Championship has been postponed and a new date will be announced by the club shortly.
