Hopkins Inn was excited in joining our friends in sponsoring the first Hopkins Pirate Scramble!
From the Belize Amateur Golf Association–(Will is the BAGA secretary):
This past Saturday was hot and that heat resulted in firm fairways and tight lies. Fortunately, the golf format was a scramble. We increased the degree of difficulty by adding pirate rules that allowed a team to take certain liberties with the ball of the other team in keeping with the saying “Pirates – We steal it, burn it, or violate it!” The pirate rules also had the effect of increasing the amount of conversation and sometimes the amount of exercise. Back at the clubhouse there were great tales of pirate mischief, a pleasant lunch, cold libations, and over $2,200 in award values donated by Hopkins Village businesses. Thank you sponsors for your generosity!
Congratulations to the winning team of Peter Allen, Peter Hughes, and Paul Martin! The full list of teams, scores, and awards are attached.
The next BAGA event will be the April monthly tournament on April 22.
