    Hosted by Team Yancy

    In September of 2014, a WGT player shanked his tee shot on hole #5 & found an ornate "Easter Egg" next to one of the trees that line the sides of the holes on this world known golf course with such rich history.

    Upon posting his game screen capture of this into the WGT forums, the community soon learned from MisterWGT himself what had been found:

    "Very impressive find! When at Pinehurst, I kept hearing drunken local rumors of the infamous and elusive rabbit and its treasured eggs (i.e. alien pods). Little did I know that our team would have captured such a rare sighting... let alone a hidden treasure on all 18 holes!"

    What followed was an almost 2 week-long drama filled explorations until all of the 18 eggs & the Easter Bunny were found and shared. The "Egg-Xplorers" would share their stories from out on the course and now it has become, and will stay, part of the epic Pinehurst golf history.

    Now in 2016, we revisit Pinehurst No. 2 and invite those who have not seen this Easter Bunny (and those who have) to a fun weekend of bunny-themed golf competitions on WGT.com!

    Join the fun in the forums and show off your skills: "SHOTGUN START" @ 9AM Saturday PST – Easter Bunny Challenges to be explained then
