A rock-piercing tiger-striped airplane marks the epicenter of the island, inviting golfers to bank shots off the fuselage to make up for bogeyed holes and denied mulligans.

Photographers stick around to snap high-res action shots along the way, all of which are available free afterward through the event’s Facebook page.
