As winter sets in and golf courses hibernate under blankets of snow, the passion for golf doesn't need to cool off. Enter aboutGOLF's Winter Series, an exhilarating competition that brings the golfing community together for a series of closest-to-the-pin contests, promising not only thrilling gameplay but also enticing prizes.
The Winter Series revolves around the closest-to-the-pin format, injecting an element of precision and excitement into every swing. Participants get the chance to showcase their accuracy and finesse as they aim to land their shots closest to the pin, making it a test of skill that promises an engaging experience for both seasoned golfers and newcomers alike.
One of the highlights of the Winter Series is the opportunity for contestants to win big every month. The competition awards two individuals – the closest to the pin and a randomly drawn participant – with cash prizes. This dual-winning system ensures that both skill and chance play a role in determining the monthly champions. The closest-to-the pin winner will receive $1,000 cash and the random drawing winner will receive $500.
The climax of the Winter Series is the grand finale, a remote event that elevates the competition to new heights and determines who will win the grand prize of an all expenses paid trip for two to the PGA of America headquarters in Frisco, Texas including a tour of the facilities and golf at the Omni PGA Frisco.
