The Oak City Classic @ Raleighwood
OCCR is the nation’s first soccer mini-golf bar crawl, featuring two of Downtown Raleigh’s classiest establishments in London Bridge Pub and The Architect. All proceeds of the tournament benefit local nonprofits that work in the Triangle community. Below is a quick video recap of the 2017 OCCR. The OCCR will be a 9-hole course, consisting of one-of-a-kind holes, with a grand finale mystery hole. The OCCR course is designed for players ages 21+ and will be fun for someone striking their first soccer ball, through to even the most “advanced” individuals. Holes will be played by foot putting with a size 1 mini soccer ball, and will be struck (hopefully) in the direction of a 12” hole. The holes will require you to step onto the tee box and foot putt down a plush, spacious fairway navigating unique obstacles. $100+; Sunday, noon; London Bridge Pub, 110 E Hargett St, Raleigh, NC 27601
