Miniature-golf pros should clean off their putters and take part in one of Ketchum's most hilarious and popular miniature golf tournaments. The Ketchum Wide Open took several year's hiatus until 2008 when it returned with great success.

This year the tournament will take place on Saturday, May 16, and will include 11 holes provided by Ketchum bars and restaurants including the Sawtooth Club, Roosevelt Grille, the Casino, Grumpy's, Lefty's, Papa Hemi's Hideaway, Rico's Pizza & Pasta, The Cellar Pub, Smoky Mountain Pizza, Sushi on Second and McClain's Pizza.

Awards will be given out for Best Overall Score, Best Costumes and Worst Score. Winners will have the chance to receive one of two rounds of golf at Bigwood Golf Course, dinner for two at the Roosevelt Grille and the Sawtooth Club, dinner for two with a bottle of wine at the Bigwood Grill, a round of virtual golf at the Sun Valley Club and much more. Entertainment for the awards ceremony will be provided by DJ Yo Mama from 4-8 p.m. at Town Plaza.

Registration will take place at 11 a.m. at Ketchum Town Plaza across from Giacobbi Square. Tee off will begin at noon. All players must sign up at the Town Plaza to receive their score cards. The cost to participate is $20 for a team of two and costumes are highly encouraged. All scored cards must be turned in by 7 p.m. at Town Plaza.
