Hole 30 – The ParHopper Open: Mini Golf Bar Crawl

By March 18, 2024No Comments

Ready to kickoff summer 2024 with a blast? Join us on May 11th for the fourth rendition of the ParHopper Open, hosted by ParHopper & The Local Drive! Consisting of two-person teams competing in a mini-golf bar crawl, a free event bucket hat, free raffle prizes and drink specials at every stop, this is an experience you don’t wanna miss! From 10am until 5 pm, prepare to see wall-to-wall bucket hats moving in groups around the RiNo district, from hole to hole. It’s a sight to behold, hundreds of participants all wearing matching bucket hats as they make their way around the “course.”


Secure a partner and get signed up as soon as possible and join us for our 2 person team, mini golf bar crawl event. It is selling out fast and has sold out for three years running! Signup fee is just $50 for a two-man team and each player receives a FREE event bucket hat. Participating sponsors of the event (all represented on the bucket hat), will create custom putting challenges for your enjoyment. These challenges will be hosted by The Local Drive, 477 Distilling, Bigsby’s Folly, Zeppelin Station, Mi Campo, Vib/McDevitt Taco Supply, Great Divide, Dewey Beer, Number Thirty Eight, Ironton & Fireball

Check-In & Challenges

The Local Drive hosts the first and last hole of the competition and will also be the official check-in for the event. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase unlimited mulligans for $10 each for which you will also receive a single Vice/ParHopper golf ball for play and a raffle ticket. Each team will receive an event scorecard that has the participating holes listed and numbered. Please note, you can bring your own putter if desired and you can in fact, play the holes in any order you wish.

The Local Drive’s Trackman simulated bay games will feature additional challenges for participants to enjoy while competing for prizes! These challenges will be hosted by Branch & Barrel, VAQIT, Suerte, Caddy Cocktails & Patron and will include closest to pin challenges and men AND women long drive contests. The purchase of a drink special at the Local Drive bar, will give you extra tries at these various virtual challenges. So, enjoy each hole and their drink specials to the fullest, but don’t lag around too long once you complete play, beat feet back The Local Drive, turn in your score card and start trying your hand at the simulator challenges! 

Other Perks & Opportunities

As mentioned above, each hole or stop throughout the mini golf crawl, will also offer an event drink special. For these bar owners, managers, and bartenders, it’s an opportunity to build a mini golf hole that shows the participants what is truly unique about their venue, and provides a chance to showcase their signature cocktails and brews. However, purchase of this special allows you to deduct one stroke on this particular hole! Like we needed any incentive to drink more, much less be rewarded for it! The event after party will be hosted at The Local Drive as well, offering premium cocktails second to none, a live DJ, prizes for the lowest scoring team, simulator challenges and tons of raffle prizes! 

For brands looking to advertise, this event provides a unique way to engage with the Denver community and experience face-to-face interaction with locals who strive to support local businesses. Additionally, some of the brands/sponsors will also be offering free ”tastings” of their spirits. What are you waiting for, this is almost too much bang for your buck! Sign up today!

Come Make New Friends & Connections

Another great aspect of this event is the huge variety of people it attracts. It can sometimes be difficult to meet new people and make friends, but this event just seems to bring together people from all walks of life! Whether it’s bonding over the golf challenges, your new favorite bar, or your favorite new beer or cocktail, it’s seriously a great networking event as well. 

Additionally, it’s the perfect opportunity to meet and mingle with local business owners. We love this vibrant , supportive community and fully recognize that this event would be impossible without our devoted sponsors and participants. The ParHopper Open would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our supporters and participants!
