Here are just a few highlights of the event, to convince you that you should be out golfing during the eclipse.

You don’t want to be stuck in your office trying to view the first solar eclipse in the U.S. since the 70's through a dirty window. You need to be outside during an astronomical event like this. The total transit across the sun takes about three hours, so why not spend that time on the golf course of your choice?

Experience LeaderboardKing, the best live-scoring and live online leaderboard software out there. One person for your group enters scores on their phone and you can all see your names on a PGA-like leaderboard for your event, and also see where you stand nationally. After scores are completely entered, you will be able to see if you took a Skin on your course that day. Sure, the only payout is pride, but that's powerful stuff.

The golf may have to stop for a while in some areas, when the day turns dark as night. Put the head cover back on your driver, turn on some Dark Side of the Moon and soak it all in. This will be the astronomical (and golf) event of a lifetime!

Be careful out there! Golfers at the first 100 courses to sign up and get at least 20 participants will receive free Solar Eclipse viewing glasses to safely view the total eclipse. You can take some really cool (or goofy) pictures and post them to your course's and our Facebook pages.

Prizes will be awarded nationally for the best outfits. Okay, best might be the wrong word. Most stand-outest, wackiest, goofiest... whatever floats your boat - post them to our FB page. We will have our crack staff of judges decide which ones they like the best, and we'll send the winners something for the effort. Let’s make this fun!

Complete your online scorecard and you will receive a unique digital certificate of participation displaying your scorecard, suitable for printing and framing as you see fit. You will also qualify for some really cool LOAA merchandise and prizes to be awarded randomly. Hopefully, that certificate will also say that you helped us break a Guinness World Record for participating in the largest one day golf event ever.

No matter what, when you are done, you will have a golfing memory to last you a lifetime.
