Oregon District hosts 12th annual Barstool Open
Dayton area miniature golf fans will soon have the opportunity to compete for children and adults with disabilities.
United Rehabilitation Services (URS) will host the 12th annual Oregon District Barstool Open, a nine-hole miniature golf course set up in the various bars within the Oregon District, Oct. 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All proceeds go to the URS to help fund programs for children and adults with disabilities.
Each of the participating bars—Dublin Pub, Pulse Night Club, Ned Pepper’s, Wiley’s Comedy Club, Oregon Express, Toxic Brew Co., Blind Bob’s, Tumbleweed and Trolley Stop—will set up a miniature golf hole of their own invention.
Then, golfers in teams of four or less hop from bar to bar, testing their putting skills on each bar’s creation.
“It’s not just a standard green,” said Vivian O’Connell, communications manager for URS. “[The bars] usually get pretty elaborate with what they do.”
Each bar will also have complementary snacks and drink specials available.
Sarah Porter, service manager of the Dublin Pub, which has been a participating bar since the event’s creation, said she really enjoys the event.
“I love it. I love the business it brings and the sense of community. It becomes one of those events where the Oregon District really gets together,” said Porter.
Wright State junior Organizational Leadership major Destany Meadows said she was interested in the event and appreciative of the cause.
“I find it awesome,” Meadows said. “ I’ve never been to the Oregon District, [but] I would go to support a cause like this.”
