We are beyond excited to be in the path to experience a total solar eclipse and can’t wait for you to experience the “Darke Side of the Moon” festivities with us, in Darke County Ohio, the Annie Oakley Capital of the World!

We have an entire weekend full of activities planned and will kick off our first Friday of the year on Friday, April 5 at 6pm with a Puttin’ Around Downtown event. While on the golf tour, participants will get to experience all the unique shops downtown. So brush up on your golfing skills and plan to join us for a night of FUN! We will also have live entertainment by Mora and the Boys at Sure Shot Tap House starting at 8 pm, so we hope you will stick around for the after par-tee! For more information visit:
