BMX, skateboarding and golf

From the department of “organising random things at once” comes A Kodak Walk in the Park. Albert Park Golf Course in Melbourne will host the day of craziness on December 19 featuring a day of live music, BMX, skateboarding and golf. Yes, thats right. Live music, BMX, skateboarding…….and golf.

On the cards is a pro golf event featuring some of Australia’s best men and women golfers in a 9 hole shoot out for some fairly decent prize money. Sarah Kemp, Nikki Campbell, Alistair Presnell and Cameron Percy will all be competing.

Alongside the golf the skateboarders will compete on the biggest vertical ramp in the southern hemisphere, the BMX riders will compete on 600 tonnes of dirt dumped next to the first tee and bands including You Am I, Kisschasey and Dallas Crane will perform on the main stage!

Taking golf to the kids. This could be really cool, I mean….gnarly. Go!

    I can’t think of a single place that events like this co-exist over here in the States. It’s either one or the other. The closest thing I can think of is during the X Games. There are quite a few gorgeous golf courses in the vicinity, but none featured at the same event.
    Honestly I think it would go over really well! Parents can play a round or two of golf after dropping off their teenagers to see the BMX tournies. Great idea.

    I think it will work well too. It’s kinda crazy on the surface but can’t help but think it is the sort of thinking that is needed here. they’ll get a lot of peopl4e attending too. Melbourne people will turn up to anything with “sport” in it. Actually, they’ll turn up to anything! Social bunch.
