Welcome to the 26th Almost Annual Royston Invitational Putting Tournament.  Where legends are born every year and glory goes to those who can master the idiosyncracies of a poorly manicured back yard. No skill required, anyone can win one of the "epic" prizes.

In 1989, the first RIPT occurred and after three provinces, hundreds of putterers with their dreams dashed, we are back in Ontario. 


  • The Tournament begins at 1:00 with the first foursome and all are invited to arrive then - the last foursome will be added around 2:30
  • We request that you bring a dish (Appetizer, Side or Dessert) to share with your fellow putterers(with ingredient list). The hosts are providing a main dish as well as non-alcoholic beverages and snacks - BYOB.
  • We request that you bring your own lawn chairs as sadly the hosts lack these.

This is a fun afternoon to celebrate our shared humanity while chasing small balls into holes with metal rods, we hope you'll join us.
