The first event is scheduled at 5:30 pm, April 10, the first day of the Masters.
The monthly nine hole event is open to all and begins with a shotgun start. Golfers set their own groups, play their own tees and select their own game. Singles and twosomes can be paired. Players return to the clubhouse for complimentary food.
Men’s Nights at Purgatory i
nclude free range balls, nine holes of golf with cart, complimentary food, beverage specials, door prizes, course contests and a chance to win a free round in the golf pool. The fee is $35.
“We have shaken up the April Masters Men’s Night with a decidedly Augusta National flavor,” said head pro Jon Stutz.  “A ball skipping contest across the putting green pond mimics the Hole 16 fun during the Masters practice round.  Play then follows on a unique 9 hole Par Three course set up on the back nine. Back at the clubhouse, Chef Shane has added a favorite directly from the Augusta National clubhouse menu,” added Stutz.
Call the pro shop at 776-4653 no later than the Wednesday before the event to reserve a tee slot.

Last Men’s Night Ended in Football Fashion

By: Tony Adragna on September 6th, 2013

The last Purgatory Men’s Night of the season was held last night, September 5.  The theme for the evening was football, as last night was the opening night of the NFL.

Rather than using traditional golf scoring, the participants in the Men’s Night used football scoring, where the highest score won.  A birdie was seven points (touchdown), a par was three points (field goal), and a bogey was negative two points (safety).  Teams were comprised of three individuals that played in a scramble format.

Here are some photos from the event:
