For no other reason than that we just want to play golf with Shooter McGavin (master thespian Christopher McDonald) while raising money for a charity at the same time, The Action Pack invites YOU to join our 1st Annual Golf Tournament, followed by a HAPPY GILMORE QUOTE-ALONG SCREENING at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane on March 22nd, 2014!

Not only will you get to play with the Shooter McGavin, but you'll get to do it on a really awesome course! The Onion Creek Club Golf Course is a 27-hole championship course co-designed by golf legend and Austinite Ben Crenshaw. In other words, you won't have to worry about torn-up fairways or greens that are covered in sand, so sign up with some friends to create a foursome and compete in the most fun scramble tournament you'll ever experience!

When the tournament ends, your night has only just begun! After hanging out with Christopher McDonald on the fairway, we'll all head over to the Alamo Drafthouse to enjoy his masterful turn as Shooter McGavin in our Happy Gilmore Quote-Along screening followed by a Q&A with the man himself.

Since we couldn't find a way to donate funds to help save Happy's grandma's house, proceeds from the tournament will benefit The Settlement Home for Children, a place that provides a tranquil atmosphere for children to heal and grow.

MORE ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT:

While this tournament is mainly an appreciation for HAPPY GILMORE, it's also a celebration of the Holy Trinity of golf movies: CADDYSHACK, TIN CUP, and (of course) HAPPY GILMORE*. 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! Maybe we'll even go eat some hay, make things out of clay, lay by the bay, we just may! What dya say?!

*Sorry, LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE, but you're the PGA Championship of golf movies...you almost made the cut.

Costumes (or golf attire, as they're sometimes called) are highly encouraged. No need to feel obligated to pick out your finiest Dri-Fit polo and khakis. Outrageously plaid pants, Boston Bruins jerseys, and whatever this outfit is are all welcomed.

This Tournament is a Scramble Format:
In a scramble, 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!
