The Zombie Apocalypse is Coming—Break out Your Golf Clubs!

Saturday, Oct. 15, 3 p.m., Legacy Ridge Golf Course, 10801 Legacy Ridge Pkwy.

The already challenging game of golf gets even more difficult this fall with Westminster’s first ever nine-hole Zombie Golf Tournament. Join the fun on October 15 when live zombies invade Legacy Ridge Golf Course.

This unique golf experience kicks-off at 3 p.m. with a shotgun start and scramble format. In addition to the usual hazards (sand traps, water hazards, trees), "live" zombies will be stationed on each hole and will hunt for competitor’s brains (the in-play golf balls) after tee-off. Golfers will be penalized if the zombies, hidden around the course, get to their “brain” golf ball before it makes it to the hole. (Don’t worry if you are not fast; zombies are extremely slow due to rigor mortis). Teams with the most brain balls left at the end of the tournament have a greater chance to win the grand prize as each brain ball is worth one ticket in the final prize drawing.

The Zombie Golf Tournament represents a partnership between Westminster Parks, Recreation and Libraries Department and the Westminster Fire Department’s Emergency Management Division. While Colorado residents are unlikely to encounter a zombie invasion in real life, the potential exists for other types of natural and man-made disasters. From tornadoes and other weather-related threats to industrial accidents and hazardous material spills, emergency preparedness can minimize your risks. All golf tournament participants will receive valuable information on how they can best prepare their families for a real-life emergency.

Tickets for the Zombie Golf Tournament are $68 per player (not including golf club rental if necessary). Dinner will be provided. While individual player are welcome, teams of four players are encouraged to sign-up together. All skill levels are encouraged to join in the fun.  Field is limited to first 72 bold participants!
