This is Not A Joke!

Yes, the official "Mustache Month - Movember" is over.  But forget about that, trust me your gonna want to start growing back your 'stache today. For you moustache rookies, patchy faces or wannabes out there here are some quick tips and a guide to get you baby faces started.  Why the urgency?  THE MUSTACHE OPEN!

What is "The Mustache Open"?  Probably one of the most unorthodox, unusual, yet wonderful and unique golfing experiences (other than the Playboy Golf Tournament) you will ever be a part of.   Like I said this isn't a joke...these tournaments will not only be televised (yeah tv crews - crowds - the whole thing) there will also be celebrities, big prizes and gifts for everyone that plays.

And from what we have been hearing this thing is growing some legs, quite a few BIG name companies are interested in getting behind these events for something even more special. And of course for the winner the proud honor of wearing the prestigous "Leisure Robe". The events will also be giving back to some great charitable causes.

About - The Mustache Open

The inaugural Mustache Open two man scramble took place in June of 1999. It was held in a small town outside Lincoln, Nebraska and consisted of 80 dudes sporting sweet staches.  Over the years, the Mustache Open has grown to be known as the best mustache golf tournament in the world.

The Mustache Open has not only been about playing golf but has also evolved into a tournament about style, charity and of course.......kick ass mustaches. Prizes are not only given to the top team playing in the tournament also those teams and individuals who best embody the spirit of The Mustache Open. The most coveted of prizes, The Mustache Open Leisure Robes, are given to the top two man team in the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas, Nevada, where we crown the best of the best.

But it’s not just about the prizes, or even that proud flag of manliness emblazoned on your lip. The tournament is matching the power of your facial hair with local charities in need. So stand tall, Mr. Moustache. With every swing, you’re doing your part to make your community a much smoother place. Just like that patch on your face.

The Events

First rule: you have to have a mustache to play or a really good fake 😉  But other than that the events are open to anyone, but this thing fills up fast, so if you want to play get in today.  2 Winners from each event will be sent to Vegas for the finals.  Finals take place in Movember.

"The Mustache Open" is holding tournaments in the Scottsdale AZ, Lincoln NE, Orlando FL, and Los Angeles CA. This is your chance. Float like a butterfly, stache like Burt Reynolds. Register today to play in the world's greatest two man scramble ever.

Each mustachioed competitor has a chance to showcase their skills and their stache to qualify for a free trip to Las Vegas to play in the Tournament of Champions. The winning two man team will be crowned The Mustache Open Champions and be presented with the coveted Mustache Open Leisure Robes.

This is an opportunity unlike any other. It’s bragging rights to your friends. It’s a legacy you can pass along to your children’s children’s children. Win fame. Get the girl. Get the guy. Get the girl to get the guy to get you a sandwich. But first, get your mustache and swing in shape, because the competition is bound to get hairy.

Horseshoe all the way even though I currently wear a Chevron.

The Paint Brush is as classic as it is awesome. Also know as the Push Broom, made famous by Ned Flanders when he famously observed that he “got some bubbly gum in the ol’ Push Broom (Paint Brush).


Henry Cotton February 21, 2013 at 10:22 am

The Handlebar should be renamed The Water Buffalo.


Vince February 18, 2013 at 6:49 pm

Gotta go with the Chevron! Thinking “Father Guido Sarduchi” from Satuday Night Live!!!


Aotearoabrad February 17, 2013 at 8:07 pm

Aw dude, we need a qualifying contest in New Zealand! Seriously though, it would be impossible to beat a giant ginger fu manchu!!!


ProsPosition-Mike February 17, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Petit Handlbar hands down. A fancy upgrade to an elite staple.


Golfer Burnz February 17, 2013 at 8:49 am

I am wondering how the stache might affect my golf swing? I believe I will go with the straight pencil thin stache so I can use it as an alignment aid.


C.Evans February 16, 2013 at 10:11 am

Ever since my younger days, I’ve always admired Rollie Fingers and his sweet handlebar stache.


RP Jacobs II February 16, 2013 at 10:44 am

HaHa, now there was a stache that rocked!!

That stache alone was responsible for at least 66-68 of those saves!!

According to reliable anonymous sources, it was the stache that swayed the key voters necessary to allow him to become the first reliever in the Hall

Great pick & post

Whatever Bill Murray was sporting at the AT&T. I sported a goatee for many years, but now I’m thinking of growing one of those.


Ann February 16, 2013 at 6:19 am

I don’t care which one he wears….he is hot!


RP Jacobs II February 16, 2013 at 6:52 am

If you think he’s hot, check out my pic in the forum 😉

My favourite is the ‘chevron’, it’s an original and a classic!

Great concept and idea for putting together a golf tournament for charity.

I hope it is well supported and a success.


Michael L. February 15, 2013 at 11:47 pm

fu manchu


Golfspy_zinger February 15, 2013 at 10:27 pm

Gotta go Walrus! Nice Job Tim!


Tim February 15, 2013 at 10:08 pm

Gotta go with the Chevron, because that was the first mustache I ever rocked!


Jgolf February 15, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Gotta go handlebar…


Tim February 15, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Gotta go with the Craig stadler – the walrus. People always think he’s not havin fun but that thick stache just covers his smile. The walrus – its just plain funner


Joe Golfer February 15, 2013 at 2:23 pm

Love the retro 1970’s furniture that Clifton Waterbury III is sitting on, complete with the retro pillows.
And the round mirrors behind him make it look like he’s got portholes behind him, as if he’s sitting in his luxurious state room on a ship.
Could he secretly be a Bond villain? Or is he really L. Ron Hubbard still alive, having been cyrogenically frozen, and now still living on that ship in international waters?


David W February 15, 2013 at 2:14 pm

We played the Ocean Course a couple of weeks before the PGA and were all required to grow a stache and have a white belt with a cool buckle. I’ve posted the pic on the forum under the post “Golfing with Staches” in the “Everything Else” forum.


Brian Lay February 15, 2013 at 11:31 am

Fu Manchu is the best!!!! I’m in the process of growing one of the bad boys for golf season! Wish your tourneys were closer!! Love the pants guys! Hittem straight


MrMcGovs February 15, 2013 at 11:16 am

The handlebar!!!


Zach February 15, 2013 at 11:08 am

I personally rock the painter’s brush, but my favorite is the English. Maybe we can get Johnson Wagner to rock it!



Joel Gregory February 15, 2013 at 11:01 am

The fu manchu rocks, would dress as ming the mercilous and play a round of golf with that bad boy hanging of my face


RP Jacobs II February 15, 2013 at 10:37 am

Too bad JB that the Nashville event fell through, though I’m with ya Dude on the HANDLEBAR!

It takes a special face to make em work and the women swoon, and Bro, we got it!

JBones February 15, 2013 at 10:25 am

Man, I’m disappointed, there was going to be an event in Nashville and I was going to play in it.

I was going to rock out the HANDLEBAR, but oh well.


Mike Slowik February 15, 2013 at 10:05 am

Fu Manchu!!! Classic!!


Rob S. February 15, 2013 at 9:57 am

The imperial is sweet, but I’d have to sport the walrus.
