The golf tour itself stretches all the way to the Championship Round on October 9, so if you have a decent swing, you could spend close to six months chasing a little white ball around a carefully manicured lawn.
"Each match will be a two-man 'Best Ball Scramble,'" according to Famous Smoke Shop store manager, Tim Carr. "If a player doesn't have a partner, we will assign them one. Players' handicaps will also be used as a guide for creating the foursomes and pairing-up singles, but not for scoring of the rounds, which will be based on a points system," he added.
If, like me, you don't play golf, Famous Smoke Shop has a few other events planned for the summer, so you'll have no shortage of reasons to light up a cigar (as if you need one).
- Golf Round 1, April 25: Classic Car Show
- Golf Round 2, May 29: Motorcycle Show
- Golf Round 3, June 27: Cigar Expo 2009
- Golf Round 4, July 25: Classic Car Show
- Golf Round 5, August 29: Motorcycle Show
- Golf Round 6, September 19: TBD
The events will be held at the Famous Smoke Shop store in Easton, PA.
If you're planning to enter the tournament, the cost is $89.99 per round, and there are pro-rated discounts available for volume. A Happy Hour follows each event, where food and drinks will be served ... with featured cigars from event sponsors Drew Estate (ACID), CAO, Camacho, Cusano, Rocky Patel and Los Blancos.
