13th Annual Polar Bear Open Golf Tournment - Burlington Golf Center

02/17/2008 to 02/17/2008

522 Spielman Hwy. Rte 4, Burlington, 06013. Phone: 860-675-7320.

The Polar Bear Open will begin at 10am and runs through mid-afternoon. Participants must register in advance. Entry fee is $25 per player. The nine-hole event with holes ranging from 150 to 250 yards is the idea of Chet Dunlop Jr. Connecticuts PGA Teacher of The Year, founder of the Burlington Golf Center and Director of The New England School of Golf. What started as an informal event between the pro and other local pros caught in the deep freeze of a tough New England winter attempting to defy the grip of old man winter had proved so popular that Dunlop decided to make it an official annual event. With temperatures some years hovering near 10 degrees a full field of men and womens division vie for first, second, and third place prizes. Each loop brings the players back to the Pro Shop for free mugs of hot mulled cider and cider doughnuts from Hogans Cider Mill, also located on the property. Players warm themselves by the wood-burning stove as they discuss their strategy before heading out to brave the elements and the whims of the golf gods. In the Indoor Practice facility, which includes computer swing analysis, full swing areas, bunker practice, putting and chipping areas, free clinics will be offered for participants and spectators throughout the event. For more information call 860-675-7320 or email info@burlingtongolfcenter.com
