It’s easily one of the craziest events of the summer in Parker. It’s the annual Flog Tournament, and it will be held Saturday, July 11, at the Emerald Canyon Golf Course, which is located seven miles north of Parker on Riverside Drive. It’s across the road from La Paz County Park.
“Flog” (golf spelled backwards) is golf played with baseball bats. The event involves teams of players who often wear colorful or silly uniforms of costumes. Players tee off by tossing golf balls into the air and hitting them with their bats. Putting often looks more like pool players lining up shots for the pocket rather than golfers lining up shots for the hole.
This year’s event is billed as “The 20th Annual Baseball Golf World Championship.”
The event is sponsored by a local radio station and is a fundraiser for local non-profits.
More information on this event, such as the starting time, rules and fees, will be provided as it becomes available.
