The Fox British Open

 

**************************************

WHAT A DAY!!!

After a snow day cancellation on 10/25 and a slow melt the following week, we got a second chance at the 2020 Fox British Open.  But with wind chills in the teens, no one would show up…Right?

WRONG! Over 110 brave souls teed it up for the 13th Annual event, and a good time was had by most.  One of the best scores in the event’s history was turned in by 2020 Champion Golfers Connor Herman and Stephen Kondratuk.  They turned in a sizzling 68 across the 6-6-6 format, including an impressive one-under par score for the alternate shot portion of the round.

Former Champion Golfers Brian Hills and Scott Johnson won the Net Division with a 64 (their gross score of 69 would have placed them second).

Full results posted at the link below.  Call the Fox Hollow golf shop for Skins results.

Now we wait another year for the 2021 Fox British Open, which is important, so we can forget how cold it was and once again think it’s a good idea to golf on the last Sunday in October.

Thank you for another great year!

No Complaining Allowed!!!

For over 10 years, the Fox British Open has been growing in popularity as golfers from all over the metro area put themselves to the test on a cold Sunday in October.  Come join the fun with over 100 kindred souls as we set up the course in challenging ways, both tipped (as far back as tees will go), and tucked (with unusual, but fair hole locations).

The format is a two-person 6-6-6, with six holes of scramble, six holes of best ball and six holes of alternate shot.  The weather in late October is always a challenge, as we’ve seen gusting northwest winds and windchills in the 20s on many occasions.  If you think you’re up for the challenge, click the link below for this year’s details and call the Fox Hollow Golf Shop (763-428-4468 ext. 7) to get signed up.

This year’s event will be held on Sunday, November 1, with a 11:00 shotgun start following state COVID guidelines.

The fun and camaraderie of the Fox British Open, 18 holes with cart, range balls and another year of feeling proud you survived, all for $59 per player.
