American Martial Arts Institute

Glow Ball Golf Tournament

This is an opportunity to laugh, have fun and relax together.  We are only doing one tournament and the date is set for Saturday, June 15, 2019.  You do not need to be good at playing golf.  Get your four person team selected and sign up before all the team spots are gone.

All four of our martial arts styles are participating, which includes the empty hand, iaido, cane, and kendo styles.  This event is about doing something different and fun with some of the proceeds going to a worthy cause.  This year the donation will be going to the Utica Blind and Visually Impaired agency, who also have staff members participating. 


We have also opened this event to other individuals outside of these two groups by invitation.  We look to have a great time and look forward to sharing this experience with our invited community guests.  The fee includes food and there are prizes for certain challenges on certain holes. 

The fee is $40.00 per person.  Checks should be made out to Holland Heights Golf Course or you can pay in cash.  Five (5) dollars of the fee will go to the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Tee Time will be 8:30 pm or 9:00 pm

Date is Saturday, June 15, 2019. 

Back up Rain Date is Saturday, June 22, 2019. 

Check the American Martial Arts Institute on Facebook to find out if the event is being rescheduled due to weather. 

You may bring as many flashlights to tie to your golf cart as you wish to assist you to see.

You may buy your own glow balls or buy them there for $5.00 each (they offer white, blue, green, or red).

Rules and Guidelines: 

1) We are playing "Best Ball" for each team.                                                                                            
2) Two teams at each hole.  The first hole is played while it is still light out.                                   

3) Men will hit from the White Tees and Women will hit from the Red Tees.   If no one on your team hits the ball after three 

     strokes (swings), a designated thrower on you team may hand-throw the ball as far as they can.  Designated throwers can

     only be used off the Tees. 
4) Keep in mind these are gas engine golf carts.  You will not be able to draw electricity from them. You will need a drivers licence       if you are a driver.  You are strongly encouraged to put as many lights, glow sticks, flash lights, flood lights or work lights as 

     you can on them to help you see and for others to see you. 

5) This is a non-alcohol activity.  There are juice, soft drinks, and water there for you to purchase or you can bring your own.

6)  There will be a fifty-fifty drawing which will also contribute to the donation to the CABVI donation.

     cancelled it will be on our School's and the Holland Heights Golf Course's Facebook page by 1:00 pm that day.  For those who

     do not know what Facebook is you can call the Secure Living Online number which is 315-278-7157.    

8)  Glow balls will be available there for five dollars each. Holland Heights will have four colors. You should have 3 or 4 before

     going out to play.  You may want to bring a permanent marker to identify your glow ball from your teammates'.

9)  At 7:30 PM, for those who wish, there will be a sight-seeing golf cart parade following the cart trail through the 9 holes so that

     everyone can see the layout of the course before it gets dark.
