Looking for a new challenge on the range? Then grab your .22 and enter the Caldwell Golf Ball Challenge!
You know how it can get a little boring plinking away at the same old targets at the range all day? It’d be nice to mix things up and add a little challenge to your time at the shooting bench, which is why Caldwell’s latest giveaway is a pretty genius idea.
It’s called the Caldwell Golf Ball Challenge, and all you need is a .22 rifle or pistol, nine golf balls (or a printable range kit you can download from CaldwellShooting.com), and enough ammo to take on the full challenge.
It’s easy to enter and share your score, which gives you the awesome chance of winning weekly prize packages with tons of incredible gear from Smith & Wesson, Thompson Center, Crimson Trace, TV Partners, Lapua/SK Ammo and many more.
Plus, two grand prizes will be given away at the end of the challenge, including a Performance Center TCR .22 rifle with a Crimson Trace Scope and a Performance Center Victory with a Crimson Trace Red Dot Sight.
How it Works
The course has nine holes. Each hole has a set par, and you can compare the total number of shots it takes to hit every ball to the total of par 27.
- Holes 1-3 – Rifle 50 yards / Pistol 10 yards – 3 golf balls, two shots per ball
- Holes 4-6 – Rifle 75 yards / Pistol 15 yards – 3 golf balls, three shots per ball
- Holes 7-9 – Rifle 100 yards / Pistol 20 yards – 3 golf balls, four shots per ball
Every shot taken counts as a stroke. If you fail to hit the ball on a shot, a +2 stroke penalty is added to the score for the hole. Since par for the course is 27 strokes, a perfect score would be nine strokes (all nine balls hit, with no misses). Think of it as scoring a -18 under par.
You can enter the contest by uploading your picture or video to the online contest form, and earn bonus entries by sharing it with friends. It doesn’t matter what you score, it won’t affect your chances of winning! All they ask is you share your photos and videos by tagging the Caldwell Facebook and Instagram.
Caldwell wants to know if you used any of their gear, plus which firearm, optics and ammo you used to earn your score.
It’s a fun way to stay engaged, aim true, and potentially scoop up some awesome shooting gear from some really great brands.
Next time you head to the shooting range, it’d be well worth your time to shift gears and try the Caldwell Golf Ball Challenge. So grab your .22 and shoot up some golf balls next time you’re at the range…or, if your range doesn’t allow that, bring out some official targets to use. Either way, don’t forget to snap some pictures and enter for your chance to win!
