Die-hard golfers of all abilities are invited to the upcoming Annual Ice Tee Golf Tournament, sponsored by and taking place at Ehrhardt's Waterfront Restaurant, on Rt. 507, overlooking Lake Wallenpaupack. Major sponsors for this event are Ehrhardt's Waterfront, Yuengling & Banko Beverage and Crystal Cabin Fever.

The tournament will be held atop frozen Lake Wallenpaupack on Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011. Two 9 hole challenging courses will be created, complete with tree lined fairways, greens, water traps, obstacles, and roughs.

Golfers will receive a colored golf ball plus a scorecard and map illustrating the course layout, and each participant is restricted to playing with two clubs and one putter. Tee times will begin at 9 am until 2 pm on Sunday. "Green Fees" are a non-refundable donation of $15 per person in advance; $20 on the day of the event.

Golfers may also participate in the "Closest to Wally" driving contest, and the many other activities which will be held in conjunction with the main event. Prizes will be awarded to the golfers who land the closest drive to "Wally Paupack", the snowman-mascot of the Pocono Mountains' Lake Region, as well as to the "craziest" sled and "wackiest" hat.

The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place at Ehrhardt's Waterfront at approximately 3 pm, complete with prizes, 50/50's and giveaways.
