Golfing in anything besides a Sport Kilt is a missed opportunity.
Golfing in a Kilt!
Team Sport Kilt competed in and sponsored hole 10 at our local Chamber of Commerce golf tournament, which took place at Homestead Golf Course in Midway, Utah. The tournament was raising money for the local food bank, and we were giving away embroidered golf towels to the closest in each foursome, plus a custom kilt to the overall closest to the hole winner (congratulations Tyson!)
Our foursome was myself, Geovanni from Sport Kilt, Dennis from the band Swagger, and my dad, Jim. We all showed up in our Sport Kilts, and immediately people were asking questions, smiling, and taking our pictures. We were 3 under through the first three holes, and off to a great start. We finished bogey free all day, with an eagle on 17, for a 7 under par 64.
The dress sporran I wore (white rabbit with black tassels) didn’t get in the way of my swing at all, and it was a very handy place to keep tees, balls, divot tool and a glove.
Because it was a social-distancing tournament, we didn’t get to have the normal awards ceremony, but we did meet a lot of local businesses at their cabanas on each hole, and got to spread the word about how great it is to golf in a Sport Kilt. Some of the hole sponsors had fun games, like seeing how far you could hit a 12 foot long driver, chipping contests, or cornhole.
We had so much fun, and not only did our kilts bring a smile to everyone we talked to, but they were super comfortable in the 90 degree weather. None of us will miss the opportunity to golf in a Sport Kilt knowing the fun it adds, the comfort, and all the questions you get asked from everyone.
