With Webster being an international University it is no wonder that a few frosty pitchers of beer will bring students together.
With that in mind, Webster’s SGA organized a Pub Golf Tournament on April 6, 2012 open to all students and willing participants.
How it Works
Each pub or “hole” has a different designated challenge or “par” and like golf, the lower the score the better. Points can be added to the team’s score when you fail to complete the challenge under par or for other reasons like arguing with other teams, spilling, and even puking.
The night began at De Kroeg for a 3-par challenge. Those up for the job raised their glass with determination to down the beer in three gulps or less.
Next stop was a wine-chugging challenge down under at The Duke of Oz. A surprise task for extra negative points was presented in the form of Jagermeister shots for the brave and willing.
The third hole was held at the sports bar Vikings with a hearty Guiness and Bailey’s Irish Cream bomb shot challenge, better known as an Irish Car Bomb.
Shortly afterwards, students stumbled over to the famous Webster watering hole, Shooters, for a tasty shot race. The red, yellow and green spirits lined the bar and one by one disappeared inside eager competitors.
The final stop in the tournament was at Next, and ended with flaming Absinthe shots. Shortly afterwards the awards ceremony was held, where medals were awarded to the best dressed, “king and queen” of the evening, and overall winning team.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner
Best Dressed: Boris van Tol; Team Winners: “The League of Extraordinary Alcoholic Gentleman”: Sebastian Fliege, Reeve Lanham, Gus Dijkstra, Jonathan Rogles, Kolbe Olszwski (King).
The night was an overall success! I personally have never seen so many people out for a Webster event and I highly recommend something like this be planned again. New friends and memories were made thanks to Danielle Kate, Savanna Wilson, Taryn Putinta, and Michelle Weaver who worked hard organizing the event. To those who missed out, we hope to see you out next time!
