Golfers may be eligible to play the “Second Chance Hole” at Jake’s if they are dressed in (obvious) golf attire. The Second Chance Hole serves as a mulligan and allows you to put one time to replace your highest score.

1st Place wins $500 cash.
Prizes and gift certificates are awarded to 2nd & 3rd Place and the best dressed male & female.

The 10th Annual Bar Stool Classic wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our community partners: Longs Drugs, Michelob ULTRA, Security Federal Trust, Checker Yellow Cab, City of Columbia, the Five Points Association, The Babcock Center Foundation and Experience Columbia SC.
