Need some help in putting together a "murder mystery" for a golf outing
by Terry Burtrum
I am in charge of our ladies golf invitational - July 2011, we would like to have a murder mystery be the theme. We were thinking that we could put together a scenario (who was murdered) and then leave 9 clues for the golfers to obtain if they scored a net par or better on the asigned holes.
Once in - after the round, the guests could guess who was the murderer and we would award a prize to the team (of 2) a $$ prize for guessing correctly who committed the murder. If mor than one guessed correctly - we would split the prize.
We thought it could be the golf Pro or the Course Superintendent who was murdered. Maybe we could find their body on the course in the morning - as we were setting up the course for the tournament. Any ideas as to how we can put this together?
Thanks for your help.
Thanks for your question. What you're talking about sounds more like a kind of puzzle or treasure hunt (with clues) rather than a "normal" murder mystery party.
I'm afraid I'm not sure how you'd go about creating your murder mystery. What you might do is look at an existing golf-themed murder mystery (Mysteries on the Net do one called Par for the Course and see how you can adapt it.
