The 2010 BLUE NOTE OPEN is coming!

23 Jan

Our date for this years BLUE NOTE OPEN–Quincy’s premier annual indoor winter golf tournament will be Saturday FEBRUARY 20th 2010 starting at Noon. We will have a NEW start and finish point this year, and it will be TURNER HALL, 926 HAMPSHIRE ST in Quincy. There will be much better parking there, than what we’ve had to deal with in the past…

To refresh everyones memory, or if you know little about the event, it is teams of four golfers, (with one MANDATORY desiginated driver-or a separate driver, per team), taking on 9 holes of indoor golf at nine different establishments. The start and finish point is at Turner Hall. THIS EVENT FILLS UP VERY QUICKLY, and we can only handle 80 Teams Maximum, and we would strongly recommend pre-payment. Our pre-paid teams are obviously in the event first, and then we’ll take the remaining allowable number of teams and their payment on the day of the event, if we have any room left.

What are we playing for? First-more than anything, for the fun of the whole afternoon. Second-There will be a cash prize for the team, and individual with the lowest score. Also-teams are encouraged to wear their best golfing costumes, as we will award prizes also for the best dressed team, and also for the the highest individual scoring golfer. We as an organization will be using funds from this event to help out some local school music programs, and to revive some other events locally in the future.

Please scroll down this Homepage for the team registration form, and also note that we have changed the scoring of the holes, to make things more interesting this year.

Establishments included this year include: Turner Hall, The Blind Pig-12th & Lind, North End Tavern-24th & Cedar, Heartland Saloon-10th & Maine, Hooey’s-633 N 12th, The Club Tavern-1023 N 10th, North Side Boat Club-200 S Front St, Cedar Club-20th & Cedar, and The Dock-Front & Cedar St. We look forward to seeing you at The Blue Note Open!
