The Bill Mazeroski Golf Tournament will be held the next few days culminating when the first ball is put on the tee at 10am Tuesday on Mystic Rock, the home course for the PGA ’s 84 Lumber Classic for a number of years. It has quickly become a favorite of Rumbunter. The festivities will kick off on Monday night with a meet and greet at Mulligans at Nemacolin Woodlands.
Mulligan’s is breathtaking. It sits between the tee box for hole number ten and the green for hole number eleven on the Mystic Rock golf course. The Meet and Greet begins at 7pm on Monday night and will continue well into the evening. ( And early morning if last year is any indication. )
By the way, if you haven’t played Mystic, shame on you. The course was the PGA tour players favorite during the four year run it hosted the event.
Mystic Rock was created by Pete Dye, but only after the founder of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Joe Hardy, agreed to never ask how much it would cost.
