Moving golf from the fairways to Faneuil Hall, the Boston Bar Golf Invitational works off the idea that the sport itself just gets in the way of the age-old pastime of drinking in funny outfits.
The annual pub crawl typically draws in more than 1,000 participants, who make their way through a course comprised of nine different bars, earning points at each location for drinks consumed and T-shirt signatures collected. Points can also be lost for hazards such as falling down or spilling a drink.
Although the event is 21+, Bar Golf USA co-president Ryan McCullough says that non-drinkers with a love of argyle and plaid attire are encouraged to attend, as well.
“Drinking’s not required,” he says. “The purpose is just to get out of your house on a Saturday and meet different people dressed in crazy golf outfits.”
