Sounds of laughter, cheers and sinking putts could be heard from the Whitehurst community on Saturday evening as neighbors and friends participated in a Progressive Putt-Putt Golf outing.
The event was organized by Whitehurst resident Betz Wild, and more than 50 golfers participated. Wild said nine houses “hosted” holes, and each set of six golfers got a tee time to start at the community recreation area. Every 10 minutes, six more golfers were sent out.
“What made the night fun was as you were playing the course, you could hear people from a street or more over cheering from other holes,” Wild said.
Each house that hosted a hole also had a signature drink and small snack. Al Hunter, who also helped to organize the event, described it "like trick or treat for adults."
Wild said there were signs posted showing where the cut throughs and holes were. Each group of six that played had a scorecard with the community map highlighting holes on one side and their score chart on the other.
The event also offered awards for lowest score, best dressed and “I Did My Best.”
