COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the Downtown Missoula community and the Missoula Downtown Association. The loss of community festivals, membership events and Caras Park rentals means the MDA has lost more than 50% of its annual funding that brings life and vibrancy to the Heart of Missoula.
In response the Missoula Downtown Association and the Missoula PaddleHeads Baseball Team will partner together to offer Swing for Downtown, a Top Golf extravaganza at Ogren Park Allegiance Field on Friday, September 18, 2020 from 1-10 pm.
With no Griz Football in Missoula this fall, Swing for Downtown will offer a new, alternative entertainment option, and all Missoulians are invited to join the fun. The event will feature a nine-hole golf course inside the stadium. The tee-boxes will be on the concourse, and the holes will be on the field.
Sponsored by Roemer’s Point S, the Swing for Downtown outing will feature six flights with eight teams per flight. The first three flights will cost $250 per team (4 participants), and the second three flights are $300 per team of 4. The registration fee includes a swag bag, one complimentary adult beverage, and either lunch or dinner, depending on the flight. Additional food and beverages will be available for sale, and there will be additional games, raffles and entertainment throughout the day, so folks are encouraged to bring cash, as well as their clubs.
A few notes!
- We are asking participants to not bring outside food or beverage into the stadium as there will be food and beverages available for purchase.
- Folks can bring their whole set of golf clubs (for ease of carrying), but only pitching wedges and a putter are all that is needed for the golf outing. The longest distance is at most 130 yards.
- Gates will open at noon.
- Spectators welcome! $10.00 to come watch and hang out!
Due to a limited capacity of just 48 teams, we encourage you to register below today!Flight One: 1-2:15pm Flight Two: 2:30-3:45pm – SOLD OUT! Flight Three: 4-5:15pm Flight Four: 5:30-6:45pm Flight Five: 7-8:15pm Flight Six: 8:30-9:45pm
With community and participant safety as a top priority, attendees will be required to wear face coverings when entering and exiting the stadium or using common-area services, including movement between holes. If needed, masks will be provided. Attendees will be allowed to remove their face covering once they are settled into their stationary and distanced locations.
Approximately 25 volunteers will be needed for each three-hour shifts to help ensure all guests have a wonderful experience.
