All about PUG 2024
The conference starts with the PUG Golf Tournament on Monday, Aug. 26.
Golf will be step aside: All four tee off, teams select their best ball of the four, all players hit from that spot – less the original hitter (who steps aside), format continues until ball is in the hole, all four tee off on next hole, and the process repeats. There will be different tee times, with the first tee at 9:30 am.
A 50-dollar award will be presented to the winner.
