Rip, Pitch and Roll is the adult version of the popular “Drive, Chip and Putt” competition that has made a splash with its finals at Augusta National.
Scheduled for August 19 at the Boyne Mountain Driving Range, the event will feature professional and amateur divisions, as well as Dos Equis beers (of course) and live music throughout the evening. Prizes will be awarded for best golf outfit / costume as well as several additional non-golf contests.
Rip, Pitch and Roll participants will compete in three separate events:
- Rip – Participants will hit three drives and receive points for each one that lands in the prescribed driving area
- Pitch – Participants will hit three pitches from three predetermined locations (20-60 yards) and receive points based on proximity to hole
- Roll – Participants will hit three putts from three predetermined areas (short, medium and long) and receive points based on proximity to hole
Professional competitors are split into men’s and women’s groups and will play for a to-be-announced cash purse, while amateurs compete in four flights (Men 49 and younger; Men 50 and over; Women 49 and under; Women 50 and older) for prizes.
“Rip, Pitch & Roll is yet another example of our team’s mission to make golf as entertaining as possible,” says Bernie Friedrich, Boyne Resorts’ senior vice president of golf and resort sales. “It’s a great opportunity to socialize and enjoy a beautiful late summer evening while testing your skills in a fun, familiar format.”
Entry fees are $30 for the Professional division, $20 for Amateur, with a portion of proceeds benefiting local charities. Each participant also receives one drink ticket, an event gift and entry into drawings for prizes such as BOYNE Gift Cards.

Boyne offers some of the best golf in Northern Michigan. You can read my reviews of a few of their courses here:
Boyne’s resorts also feature spas, waterfront dining, sandy lakefront beaches, Avalanche Bay – Michigan’s largest indoor waterpark, and adventure sport venues. They are supported by historic, lakeside resort towns Boyne City, Harbor Springs and Petoskey, all a short drive from Mackinac Island. Following in Hemingway’s footsteps, taking in the famous northern Michigan sunsets, enjoying the casino and exploring acclaimed microbreweries means golf isn’t the only game in town.
Here in Michigan, we call the northern end of the state “God’s Country.” It’s that beautiful.
