In 1971, Calvert City celebrated its Centennial with a golf scramble named “Beards and Bonnets” and we are bringing it back 50 years later. Golfers are encouraged to form a 2-person team for this exciting event. July 3, play 9 holes at Kentucky Dam Golf Course, and on July 4, finish the 9-holes at Calvert City Golf and Country Club.
“This 2-day, 2-person scramble is bound to be a fun event! Golfers will be playing two of the top courses in Kentucky and this event only comes around every 50 years,” said Blair Travis, Calvert City’s director of marketing and business development.
The cost to participate in 9-holes is $25 and 18-holes is $35 per person. The fee includes green fees, golf, cart fee, and a 150 Calvert City commemorative golf towel. Payouts will be given to daily winners as well as an overall 2-day winner.
For those who don’t play golf, there will be a 3-day bluegrass festival happening just up the cart path from Calvert City Golf & Country Club.
Register by calling both courses to reserve your tee time. Tee times are available from 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM each day. You must reserve a tee time to participate. This event is open to all golfers. Space is limited, so please book tee times in advance.
Tee times can be reserved by calling Kentucky Dam Golf Course at (270) 362-8658 and Calvert City Golf & Country Club at (270) 395-583. Visit 150calvertcity.com for more information on the festival and golf tournament.
Note: Golfers do not have to have a beard or wear a bonnet to participate. 🙂
