The Red Putter Mini Golf in Ephraim is busy with players trying to be Pro and, those that are Pro, are getting in practice games before the Big Day!
The 17th annual Red Putter Pro Tournament is coming up Saturday, August 4th. Many champions from the past few years are returning to defend or reclaim the title, but many other players have been practicing hard and feel they have a chance.
Pros will be coming from near and far to compete for the prize money, trophy and of course the coveted Red Jacket. The top prize for the Red Putter Pro Tournament is $2000, one of the largest for a miniature golf tournament.
