Come out and golf with Shooter McGavin himself!

This is one we've been working for a long time, and it's with great excitement that we're now able to finally announce our first ever Action Pack Charity Golf Tournament!

THE HAPPY GILMORE CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT is a celebration of the sport and the full holy trinity of movies surrounding the sport. More than just HAPPY GILMORE, we'll also have themed holes for CADDYSHACK and TIN CUP and if all goes well this year maybe we'll have a full tournament around one of those movies next time!

In the meantime, though, this tournament will have it all: Journey's "Any Way You Want It,", Baby Ruth bars, hockey sticks as putters, Chub's hand, 7 irons, debates over Waffle Houses locations (there's definitely one in Odessa), AND SHOOTER freaking MCGAVIN live in person! Maybe we'll even go eat some hay, make things out of clay, lay by the bay, we just may! What dya say?!

We hope you'll join us on Saturday, March 22, as we head out to beautiful Onion Creek Golf Club for an afternoon on the course, where we'll have a shotgun scramble style tournament with themed holes where you'll have to putt while wearing a blindfold, play an entire hole with your 7 iron, and tee off with Shooter. Then we'll reconvene at the Slaughter Lane theater for a Quote-Along screening of HAPPY GILMORE followed by a Q&A with Christopher McDonald. But best of all, all of that fun will be had while we're raising money for a great cause - the Settlement Home for Children here in Austin.

And because it's a scramble, even terrible golfers will have a great time! I'm the worst golfer ever and have so far only played 18 full holes in my entire life, so I made sure we could all have fun. In a scramble, I am told, each player on a team tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all teammates play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined then all play their third shots from the spot, and so on until the ball is holed. This allows you to make terrible shots 75% of the time and still put up a great score!

I'll be making terrible shots 100% of the time, but you probably won't have to be in my foursome, so it won't bother you too much. Your registration includes your green fees, cart rental, driving range balls, guaranteed playing time with Shooter McGavin, your ticket to the screening of HAPPY GILMORE, the charity donation, and all sorts of other little goodies during the game, so head to this page here and get signed up today!
