Description

Welcome to the 9th Annual Joe Root Frostbite Open, a 9-hole golf scramble held on frozen Bay that embraces the winter months here at Presque Isle State Park!

Featured on ESPN.com and USGA.com, the Frostbite Open has captured national attention and has become a tradition for golfers of all ages and skill levels. The outing aims to bring awareness to Presque Isle's diversity, both recreationally and ecologically.

The Frostbite Open is held in cooperation with Joe Root's Grill, a staple Erie restaurant locally-owned that celebrates the life and legacy of Park hermit, Joe Root. Joe was a friendly soul who inhabited the 3,200 acre sandy peninsula and lived off the land in the late 1800s and into the early 1900s.

​This year golfers will take to the ice at a NEW course located on Marina Lake (first to freeze and last to thaw).

Joe Root’s Grill will provide a free meal to all participating golfers following the event. Mill Creek Coffee will provide coffee and hot chocolate at no charge to all participants.

In the case of insufficient ice, the event will take place on the lake side between Beach 1 and the Stull Interpretive Center (this stretch of beach is also known as the largest sand trap in PA!)

Register your 2-some, 3-some, or 4-some today!

Your Participation Includes:

  • One 9 hole round of golf on the frozen bay
  • Hot Meal at Joe Root’s after the event
  • Event ball-cap
  • Tennis ball for each player
  • Logo golf ball keepsake
