The First Annual Fourth of July Cow Pie International Golf Tournament
was played in 1999.
The three hole course was played three times for a total of nine
holes. The score card reveals
some interesting hole designations: mulligan allowed on the second
hole; beer holes include 1, 4, and 9; 5 is the Advil hole. Some
unusual activities are also described
on the score card including: hop to ball on 1 foot (hole 6);
go back 2 holes (hole 7); and liar +1 stroke (hole 8).
Because The Greens at Yanik Manor is a true pasture golf course, rules
regarding the addition and subtraction of strokes reflect the varied domesticated
animals and wildlife which you may well encounter while playing a round.
Hitting a cow, for instance requires +1 to your score whereas hitting
a horse carries a hefty +15 penalty. Scores can be improved in a number
of ways. For instance, a player may subtract a stroke for hitting a duck
in the pond; -2 for landing your ball in specially marked cow pies; -3
for never making a single par; and -4 if you are gung-ho enough to retrieve
your ball from the bottom of the pond (only if you missed the duck).
