The Down & Dirty Open

The third annual Mug Club Golf Tournament sponsored by SKA, Steamworks, Three Rivers Brewing and Carvers rolled through Hunter’s Run golf course, near Oxford, on Saturday. Themed “The Down and Dirty Open,” this year’s tournament provided five gallons of locally brewed beer at each hole to help participants successfully carry out the random array of events required to complete the course. Open to Mug Club members only, the $50 greens fee guaranteed nine holes of golf plus an endless supply of cold beer. Get your Mug Club membership now and secure your place in next year’s debauchery.
