Mark Hall of Steptoe comes up with a "stance" that works with the ergonomic challenges presented by teeing off while seated on a commode.

Thirteen teams of four golfers and 16 volunteers reported for the first Redneck Beerfest & Golf Tournament put on by the Colfax Downtown Association. It was a nine-hole scramble, each hole with a different theme and unique challenge.

A strong turnout of 13 teams gathers for instructions from course manager Craig Gronning just prior to departing to their assigned holes for the shotgun start.

Approximately $1,200 was raised for the association.

Golfers teed off from the first hole while seated on a toilet, got spun dizzy before teeing off at number two and so on. Before teeing off at number eight, contestants had to spin the Wheel of Fortune to determine their tee-off club, a pool noodle, baseball bat, pitching wedge, 2x4 or their foot.

The tournament was followed by a group dinner and awards ceremony, including committee selection of the "Best Dressed Redneck," Jennifer Morris and "Best Redneck Family Team," The Battertons.

Participants seemed to really enjoy it and asked, "where do you we sign up for next year?"
