Each year we descend on TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course for the Dave Price Memorial Horse Race, as it is now called. A horse race in golf is not unique, it’s played all over, but if you aren’t familiar, it might seem a little whacky.
Golfers, caddies, and spectators on Hole 10 at TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course.
2 golfers compete for the title Horse Race title. Each hole the golfer with the highest score is eliminated. It’s simple enough; the hard part is figuring out how all the carts and spectators are going to make it around without crashing. I think it’s the most interesting part! Once the players finish putting it’s a mad dash to get a spot at the next hole.
You can also bet on the golfers, which adds another element of fun to the event. I bet on last years winner, Jay Thiessen. Hoping for a repeat and some quick cash I put $10 on Mr. Thiessen. He came in second to local boy Nolan Rohatyn! I still won some money so I was happy.
The Horse Race is truly a social event, and the highlight of the Frametech Classic tournament. Most of us locals plan our August Long weekend around it and will continue for years.
