Zombies have taken over Rec 9! Join the invasion, October 26 at 7:15 pm with our first public Glowball event!
Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Recreation Park Golf Course 9 in Long Beach will host a Halloween Golf Event, their First Annual Zombie Walk Glowball Tournament, to be held Friday, 26 October 2012. Tee-off is at 7:15 PM.
The Halloween golf tournament is open to the general public and will include food and drink for participants, contest holes and prizes, including one for the best zombie costume.
Pop culture fans and golfers alike will have the opportunity to share in this fun golf event celebrating the season and the growing popularity of the zombie character. Zombies, which originated in Haitian folklore, have long been a staple of popular horror fiction and films such as Night of the Living Dead, The Omega Man and more recently featured in films such as I Am Legend, starring actor Will Smith and the hit AMC TV series The Walking Dead. Zombie costumes are among the most popular among Halloween celebrants today.
Recreation Park 9 has a rich history as well. Started as a very exclusive private facility known as the Virginia Country Club in 1917. In 1931, it was acquired by the City of Long Beach, opened to the public and given its present designation as a public Long Beach golf course. Today, Recreation Park 9 offers all the amenities of a full-service private country club, including a night-lighted driving range, practice greens, a pro shop, full service restaurant and banquet facilities. Little Rec tee times are well priced and offer the easy accessibility of a public golf course.
Combine the two and you have the zombie glowball Halloween golf event.
