MARQUETTE — Even though golf courses aren’t quite ready yet, locals will soon have an opportunity to work on their short game at the Downtown Spring Open Twisted Tea Off.
The Tea Off returns to Downtown Marquette on April 23rd to benefit The Janzen House, a non-profit that offers transitional housing for men. The Marquette Downtown Development Authority provides greenery to local downtown businesses to dress. The putt-putt holes usually have a theme or reflect the business in some way.
The businesses aren’t the only ones who get creative though.
Marquette DDA Promotions and Events Coordinator Tara Laase-McKinney says, “Then we also offer up prizes for each of the teams – not only for first, second and third, but for Most Creative Costumes, Most Creative Teams Names. So we really encourage people to get really into it, and have a lot of fun. There’s some really cute and some fun things that people do. So I’m excited to see that.”
The event is 25 dollars per person. The registration fee goes towards a free shuttle service and the numerous prizes. Registration that day begins at 10:30 a.m. and ends with an awards ceremony which starts at 4:30 p.m.
