Crypto gaming is big business these days. Blockchain technology is a big part of the gaming industry reaching quite a few different activities. You can now add golf to that list with a special inaugural event to be held later this month.
Indeed, this golf tournament will be sponsored by Crypto Blockchain Plug. It will be held at Westchester Golf Course in Los Angeles on Monday, Oct. 14. It is called the HODL Masters Crypto Golf Tournament. Proceeds benefit Crypto Kids Camp. This organization helps prepare our youth for the inevitability of a digital future.
This first-of-its-kind golfing event is being held in conjunction with Crypto Invest Summit (CIS) and LA Blockchain Week. Both crypto veterans and those new to the industry will be taking part in all the festivities. Networking on the links, Los Angeles sunshine and over $17,000 in prizes are just of few of the perks.
There will be various contests held throughout the golf tournament. Angelique Y Johnson on the Links will be in attendance to coach and encourage participants. She has been referred to as “The Oprah Winfrey of Golf.” Tickets are prices are $65 for golf, warm up balls, lunch and a putting tournament. Golf clubs can be rented for $20 if needed.
This event was organized by Najah Roberts. The following quote on the festivities stated:
“To kickoff LA Blockchain week and CIS, we wanted to bring thought leaders, investors and enthusiasts together in a venue that is fun and unique. Whether you’re an avid golfer or you’re new to the sport, this is a great way to network and meet people in crypto outside the usual conference hall setting.”
As part of the day’s planned activities, registered players will play nine holes of golf before lunch. They will also be able to participate in all the day’s contests. There will be a hole-in-one competition with one whole bitcoin up for grabs. That prize alone is valued at $10,000. There will be other prizes for the putting contest.
