5th Annual Battle The Bigs Charity Golf Scramble - Day 2 @ Hillcrest Golf Club | Findlay | Ohio | United States

The “Battle The Bigs” Charity Golf Scramble is back for 2017, and it’s bigger than ever, now with TWO days to choose from!

We’ll of course have all of the standard golfing fun like the “Closest To The Pin” and “Longest Putt” contests, but we’re also tossing in the chance to hit a drive with an electric guitar, we’ll start the event with a cannon, and we’re even working on something to do with a fishing pole, though that’s not totally worked out yet.

One thing is for sure, we’ll have a great time, and we’re doing it to raise money for this year’s charity: Findlay’s Hope House for the Homeless.

You can get your team registered in person at Hillcrest Golf Club OR the Fostoria Country Club, but do it soon because we sold out last year!
