Downtown El Paso Barstool Open Special Summer Edition set for July 24th

The Downtown Management District (DMD) announces the return of the popular Downtown Barstool Open.

The event is normally held at the beginning of the year, but when the pandemic prompted cancellation, the DMD did not want the public to have to wait until 2022.

A special summer edition of the Downtown Barstool Open will be held on Saturday, July 24th!

This miniature golf tournament places holes across 13 different downtown bars and restaurants with participants playing nine (9) holes.  Teams of four (4) travel from location to location to complete their round and compete for prizes.

Teams can register online now through July 18th for $60 per team, after July 18th the price increases to $80 per team. This year, a Fast Pass option will be available allowing teams to start play an hour earlier at $80 per foursome, increasing to $100 a team if purchased after July 18th.

Space is limited and this event is expected to sell out as in prior years. Each member of the team will receive a swag bag, miniature golf ball and other swag items, along with the opportunity to compete for a variety of prizes and experience downtown’s best bars and restaurants.

The event will be held on Saturday, July 24th.  An awards ceremony will be held at 4:00pm at Circa 1963 in the Indigo Hotel.

Day-of registration (if space available) and packet pick-up will be open from 9am-12pm at Circa 1963 in Hotel Indigo. Golfing will be from 11am-3pm for regular golfers or 10am-3pm for Fast Pass registrants, with teams guiding themselves to the various locations at their leisure and in their desired order.
