Golf buddies can go low on Threetops, win a trip to Scotland, and earn $10,000 for a hole-in-one
The No. 1 Par 3 course in America, Threetops at Treetops Resort in northern Michigan, is once again in the national spotlight as the popular course introduces the National Par-3 Team Championship this summer.
Starting last week and through September 11, two person teams will be able to play Threetops from the Par 3 Shootout Tees and attempt to qualify for the season ending National Par-3 Team Championship on September 27. The format for the teams is a two-person best ball with scores being verified by at least one person in the group. Multiple entries are also encouraged.
The top 28-teams with the lowest scores will qualify for the finals and have a chance to win the grand prize, which is a golf trip to Scotland including airfare. In addition, the finalists will have an opportunity on each of the 9-holes to earn $10,000 for a hole-in-one. Other prizes include golf packages and golf rounds to Treetops Resort.
Threetops gained national notoriety back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s when it played host to the popular ESPN Par 3 Shootout. The nationally televised event drew the legends of the game such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Ray Floyd, Fred Couples, and Phil Mickleson to name a few. Trevino put the event on the map when he made the most lucrative shot in golf with his hole-in-one for a million dollars in 2001.
