Pink Flamingo Pee Wee Golf Tournament

October 7, 2007


This zany event features a walking course through Niles with funny themed putt-putt golf holes. Previous holes included the "Volcanhole" which erupted with smoke and lava while the lovely Marjorie Bouton danced the hula. With the swing of a club, your eternal fate was sealed by snickering Sister Leah at the "Holy Holy Holy Hole". And downtown, the Corey Glass Shop was an unlikely place to find a dancing "Holey Cow"- and that's no bull!

"Pebble Beach has nothing on Niles - they don't even have lawn ornaments!" says Julianne Pagan, event coordinator, "everyone should flock to this event because fun and wackiness are par for the course." 

Players gather after the tournament at the "Watering Hole" for refreshments provided by Main Street volunteers. Prizes are given for Best Golf Score, Best Dressed Golfer (the wackier the better) and Best Hole Design. The event is fun for all ages and cost is just $10 adults and $5 kids/seniors. Tickets are available the day of the event at the Niles Main Street Office.

Each hole supplies putters; however, golfers are free to bring an old favorite, if it can take some abuse.

In previous years, at the Port Hole, a pirate had players "putting the plank." After the ball had dropped off the plank, the players had to putt their golf balls into port, past water hazards, sharks and sand.

The Rabbit Hole featured Alice and the Mad Hatter hosting larger-than-life tea party while players putted a four-foot round "golf" ball from a teacup onto the green.

The Nat King Cole Hole, challenged lucky golfers who could drive the ball into a waste can suspended in the air. If you got that far you could hear their ball traverse a suspended irrigation pipe and then watch it drop at the foot of the bigger-than life musician!

Other memorable past holes include: The Aristothole (your philosophy of putting please), The Flag Pole Hole, and the holiday themed, Ho Ho Ho Hole.

Proceeds benefit hosting organization, Niles Main Street, a non-profit association dedicated to the revitalization and historic preservation of the historic Niles District of Fremont, California.
