$2,000 top prize for mini-golf tournament
A professional miniature golf tournament, with a top prize of $2,000, will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at The Red Putter Miniature Golf in Ephraim.
The Red Putter Pro Tournament is the only professional miniature golf tournament in the area, and typically draws between 70 and 100 players from all over the country. Last year's champion Matthew McCaslin of North Carolina is expected to return to try and defend his title.
The tournament is sanctioned by the United States Professional Miniature Golf Association, and players who finish in the top half of the field qualify to play in the Masters National Championship later this year in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Golfers can enter The Red Putter Pro Tournament for a fee of $30, and must pre-qualify with a score under par on the course. Registered players can practice for free the week of the tournament.
