Bering Sea Ice Golf Classic

Par is 41, but winners have claimed scores as low as 23. Entry fees benefit the Lions Club. The tournament, not a wholly serious affair, coincides with the final days of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race that starts about the first of March and ends in Nome about two weeks later. More...

The Bering Sea isn’t most golf courses. But it’s the site of the annual Eliot Staples Bering Sea Ice Classic, a six-hole golf tournament that takes place during Iditarod week in Nome.
It’s run as a best-ball scramble: Each player on a four-person team hits, then all four hit again from the spot of the best previous shot.
The catch is that you’re playing on Bering Sea ice with a collection of clubs donated from back closets across Nome.
It’s $50 to sign up, and the proceeds go to the Lions Club of Nome, which runs the event. Since I didn’t have a foursome,

This makes a hell-of-a-lot more sense then all of the water wasted here in Arizona to keep the stupid golf course's green. That an the lawns is pretty GD dumb, but then no one has ever really believed that mankind was the sharpest knife in the drawer of life....
