Peoria Korn(Kan) Ferry Tour Qualifier - TBD 2022

1/27 UPDATE: NOW AN OFFICIAL NIT QUALIFYING SITE!!! (# OF QUALIFYING SPOTS TBD)

If you’ve ever wanted to roam the fairways once inhabited by the Strapped boys and the Narc, this is your chance! We’ll be reloading the Strapped Peoria experience at two of the courses featured in the series.

We are currently going through the vetting process to become an official 2021 NIT qualifying site and will let you know when it becomes official and how many qualifying spots we will be granted. Qualifying will be conducted during only the Saturday round at Lick Creek GC.

If you are interested, please sign up using the attached Google Sheet so we can get a feel for numbers. More info to come as we get closer to the event. Looking forward to seeing some of you in Peoria this Summer!

MAIN EVENT:
When: Saturday, July 10th - Tee times beginning at 10:00AM

Charity: Tee it up! For the GFPD which benefits the Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders. This is a charity that is near and dear to one of our local Central Illinois Refugees (@tchap80) and we are thrilled to be able to give to the cause. http://www.teeitup4gfpd.com/

There will a casual get together after Saturday’s round at Country Club BBQ in Peoria with @phegs32’s golf simulators available at no charge!

Jumped in the sheet. Live in Virginia, but will likely be at my folks lake house in Indiana the week before for the 4th.

3 hours seems like a reasonable drive.

Apologize for the delay on the spreadsheet. Forgot to change the sharing settings. Should be a full send going forward.

This is the same weekend as my anniversary with my GF.

I’ve already tried breaking up and getting back together so our anniversary is today, no dice.

I have literally always dreamt of personally reenacting the YouTube-series-quality antics of a former accountant turned podcaster and his college roommate’s Ivy League linebacker of a little brother who left Google for said podcast on municipal golf courses in Central Illinois, so this is right up my alley!

Jokes aside, I am massively pumped for this.

As a Peoria native now living in Cincy, I am so thrilled that P-Town is such an NLU presence. Sounds like I’ll be making a trip to see my folks in July this year!

Truly a small market team with big market dreams.

Likely in, a sub 3 hour drive is an easy sell… Will know more as we get closer.
