The Electric Phactory hailing from Philadelphia held off The High Cotton Club of Tennessee to win the first annual Roost Club Championship hosted in Kansas City last weekend. It was a two day tournament with 36 holes at the devilish Swope Memorial Muni, and a full day of golf at Ben's 7 hole backyard masterpiece, Brough Creek National. We hit cups, and we had a ton of fun doing it.

First, shoutout to the champs:
Day 1 at Swope Memorial was a legit test on a beautiful day especially when playing real golf and hitting cups!
Some Guy's Backyard
It's hard to overstate what Ben and Zach have built AND maintained the last 5 years. Brough Creek National is a magical place created through thousands of hours of hardwork and passion. I'm very grateful it exists, and what a thrill to bring 40+ avid golfers out for a full day of competition.
It was certainly darker than our cameras made it appear when we finally crowned our champs
Shout out to Steve for stopping by and hitting an honorary tee shot in the day's most 'fuego' outfit and homegrown talent Robert Streb for showing up to casually tie the course record at -3 (don't have a picture of that unfortunately)!
Lastly, I'd like to say thank you to all 27 Roosts (local clubs of avid golfers) around the world and give a massive shout out to the 27 Roost captains. Year 1 was an experiment with a lot of "known unknowns," and we now have a foundation for big things in year 2 and beyond. If you are looking for a group of avid golfers in your area to play with in 2023, find the Roost closest to you. They are free to join and the embodiment of getting involved!
