Whiskey Jacques turned their patio into a putting safari two years ago.

Putt your way around Ketchum on Saturday, May 20, when the annual Ketchum Wide Open turns Ketchum into a mini golf course.

Ten bars and restaurants will unveil their best holes that day with the greens ranging from fanciful to challenging.

Teams of two can sign up for $30 at a makeshift Country Club set up in the lot next to Whiskey Jacques beginning at 11 a.m.

Teams may then make their way around the 10 holes from noon through 5 p.m. An awards ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m. at Whiskey Jacques.

Awards will be given for lowest score, best costume, youngest, oldest and farthest traveled. Prizes include $50 gift cards from participating bars and restaurants.

Participating venues are Lefty’s, the Limelight Hotel, Whiskey Jacques, Grumpy’s, Sawtooth Brewery, The Casino, The Cellar Pub, the Warfield, Smoky Mountain Pizza and the Environmental Resource Center.

The Environmental Resource Center will be this year’s beneficiary.

Last year’s Ketchum Wide Open raised about $2,000 for The Hunger Coalition, according to co-organizer Rick Lethbridge.

The popular event—a spring cabin fever reliever—generally attracts a few hundred participants. Many come from out of town, including Twin Falls and Boise.
