Hit Another One: October 17 Is National Mulligan Day
(Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club)
THAT’S JUST GREAT. Tomorrow is National Mulligan Day and I’m not playing. Maybe I’ll celebrate the golf holiday the next time I tee it up.
If you have never heard of National Mulligan Day, you’re not alone. Neither had I until a press release landed in my inbox last month. Was this just some clever promotion by a Florida golf resort? Apparently not. National Mulligan Day is also listed on Holidays.net.
Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club is offering its guests a mulligan with a twist. On October 17, anyone playing one of the resort’s four golf courses—including the PGA Tour Copperhead Course—will get to play the same course again for free. Throughout the day, Innisbrook will also offer various specials like two-for-one “Mulligan-tinis” at its bars, as well as other offers at its spa, retail outlets, driving range and tennis courts.
The resort also took a poll that determined Frenchman Jean Van de Velde was the sports figure in greatest need of a mulligan after his final-hole disaster at the 1999 British Open. I can’t argue with that.
