2021 Fire in the Hole

On July 17th 90 attendees, 70 golfers and four cigar exhibitors gathered for the third annual summer event, Fire in the Hole, hosted by Fools’ End Club. The event was held for the first time at Missoula Country Club. The staff and facilities were top notch! Thank you also to the volunteers from the Western Montana Shrine Cub. The day of golf, socializing and cigars went very well. The skies were filled with smoke, from forest fires, and supplemented with cigars smoke from Big Sky Cigars, Carolina Blue, and Juanito’s, as well as Out of the Box.

Partial funds from the event were used to fund the Western Montana Shrine Club as well as the Boy Scouts of America. Watch here for the announcement of the 2022 event, coming soon.
