Playboy Golf Scramble Indianapolis Searches for Next Playboy Golf Girl

If you didn’t already know, Indianapolis has become quite the hub for Playboy enthusiasts and Playboy models. This weekend we will embark with the Playboy Golf Scramble Indianapolis, revamped for Indianapolis by Tawny and Jason Jenkins and Melissa and Jason Barth, who have done an amazing job organizing an outrageous event!

Thursday night from 8-10pm, Subterra will host the official Playboy Golf VIP party, a private party for sponsors and players of the 2011 Playboy Golf Scramble. We will be there, of course, interviewing two very special guests of this year’s scramble, Playboy Playmate May 2009 Crystal McCahill and Playboy Playmate January 2010 Jamie Edmonson. The official Playboy “hottest” photographer, Mandykae Blair will also be present photographing the event. If you’re still interested in registering a team contact Tawny Jenkins at 317-345-0415.

On Friday, August 19th, the Playboy Scramble Indianapolis will tee off at the Southern Dunes Golf Course on the Southside. Registration begins at 9:30am and a shotgun start will kick off the scramble at 11am. Foursomes are $1400 and individuals are $350. Winners will get to go to the Playboy Mansion in California!

And this…is where it gets interesting! Every hole has a different sponsor. Belvedere, Grand Marnier, Miller Light, Boomerang Bay, Jagermeister, Tom Wood Jaguar…and many more sponsors are representing at most holes with cocktails as well as numerous DJ’s, prizes and of course the Playboy Golf girls who will all be competing for a chance to go to the Playboy Mansion as well!

Each golfer will be given a gift bag worth approximately $250 including a jacket, shirt, hat, golf balls, towel, lunch and the awards ceremony immediately following. Tom Wood will be giving away a Jaguar. Indy’s top 5 DJ’s, DJ Gabby Love, Slater Hogan, Orion, Indiana Jones and Stewbot, will be playing throughout the event. The golfers will be voting on who will win as the Indianapolis Playboy Golf Girl and there will be a chance to meet and get autographs with the Playmates. Immediately after the scramble an awards dinner will be held at 8pm at Southern Dunes with an after-party at Tiki Bob’s on Meridian!

And here’s how the awards will be given at the ceremony:

*Out of 40 Playboy Golf contestants, the top 4 girls get invited to come out to the Playboy Mansion and compete for the Playboy Golf Girl of the Year as well as help conduct the Playboy Golf Finals in Southern California.

*The top 3 Golf Teams in the GROSS division will get an invitation to come out to LA and compete in the Playboy Golf Finals and attend the parties. They don’t get a paid trip but they get to be officially invited.

*The top 3 Golf Teams in the NET division will get an invitation to come out to LA and compete in the Playboy Golf finals and attend the parties as well. They don’t get a paid trip but they get officially invited.

And if you’re golfers…we hope you know the difference between NET and GROSS because we don’t. We like cash!

It’s not too late! Register now and be part of this amazing event, not to mention all of the prizes, free giveaways, liquor, sponsors and a chance to go to the mansion! And to the winner…Tell Hef we said hey buddy!

Indy’s SEXIEST Power Couples…


Photo Credit: Claire Buffie

For our first post on our new blog we wanted to go back to our roots…our SEXY lists! And as we sat around brainstorming different ideas we discussed how in the last two years we had been witness to the marriage between the social, professional, political and familial relationships weaving between Indianapolis’ many different backdrops. For that reason, we thought it would be interesting to list the six couples in the Indianapolis area who WE believed were the SEXIEST Power Couples. We started with approximately 20 couples and narrowed them down based on their diversity and currently being at the top of their game We had discussed having creative photographs taken of each couple, focusing on what we believed made them sexy or powerful, but instead, thought it would be more interesting to have them submit photographs which were their favorites. All of the couples we chose are down to Earth, productive, approachable, endearing, inspiring and yes…sexy. Couples, when together ignite passion and seem unstoppable, and as individuals, interesting and intricate. Most were surprised they were picked and told us they didn’t feel they were “power couples”, but in five to ten years, these will definitely be the couples leading our city and showing that above all else…love does prevail!

Faith. Love. Understanding.

Pat and Elizabeth Lechleiter Kelly

1. What are your names? What are your job titles or define your jobs.
Patrick Kelly: Student at IU School of Dentistry
Elizabeth Kelly: Department Manager: Men’s Sportswear/The Rail (Nordstrom @ The Fashion Mall)
(*Just a sidenote. Possibly they were “Born This Way”. Pat’s parents, Tim and Becky, are the magical, medical duo who have led people into recovery at Fairbanks Treatment Center for years. His father Tim is the Medial Director and one of the leading Addictionologists in the country. Elizabeth’s father, John Lechleiter, is the current President and Chief Executive Officer of Eli Lilly.)

2. How long have you been together?
We met our freshman year at Brebeuf, 98-99′. We started dating at the end of that year = 13 yrs!
3. How did you meet?
Elizabeth asked me to dance at freshman orientation but I said no b/c I had a girlfriend from junior high. We then had several classes throughout the year and finally got together at the end of the year party at a friends house (specifically behind the pool house (air high five)). *Pat would like us to clarify that this was no more than a goodnight kiss…in all honesty!
4. What did you do on your first date?
Since she was 14 and I was 15 her dad dropped her off at my house with a friend and we watched a movie. My dad drove them home. Probably not a 10.0 on the sexy scale.
5. What makes for the sexiest date in Indianapolis?
We live in Broadripple so we like to walk into the village when the weather is good, find a place to eat (preferably outside or with open windows), grab a bite and a drink, maybe meet some friends/family for a drink, and then walk home along the canal. We also have day dates that usually involve physical activity like biking down the tow path/green way to down town or running around the canal/monon in B.Rip.
6. What fictional or famous couple are you most like?
I’d like to think we are like Charlie and Harriette from “So I Married An Axe Murderer”, in the sense that we can have a good time joking and flirting while managing our daily lives (reference montage in butcher shop to the tune of “rush” by Big Audio Dynamite II).
7. What one issue do you argue most about and how do you resolve your arguments?
We have similar tastes in a lot of things so most of our arguments are luckily small; usually just the little decisions like what to eat and were to go. I get after Elizabeth about being on time b/c she takes her sweet time getting ready for any occasion, but it’s always worth it!
8. What are three secrets which make your relationship successful?
Friendship: we do things not just as a couple but as friends.
Space: we let each other run our own show and encourage interests that aren’t necessarily our own.
Trust: kind of goes with the first two but when you can dissolve that insecurity that goes along with most relationships and know that you have a support that will never go away, you can really concentrate on each other and ensure that everyone is happy.

9. As a couple…Sexiest Vacation? Sexiest Sunday afternoon? Sexiest Saturday night? Sexiest song?
Sexiest Vacation? Honeymoon: Paris, Geneva, Chamonix, Cote de Azur, Hilton Head: it never ended (thx parents!)
Sexiest Sunday afternoon? Go to church, Take Willis (our Boston Terrier) for a run on the canal, and end it all with a drink, and something from the grill in a set of chairs outside in our back yard, Willis in lap.
Sexiest Saturday night? reference sexiest date, question 5, We also like to entertain at our Bripple Bungalow with friends and family!
Sexiest song? We like to listen to “The Equalizer” off of the album So This Is Goodbye by Junior Boys while we are getting ready to go out and get our party on!

10. Who do you think is the sexiest couple in Indianapolis?
I’d have to say that I think having a project like Raannt and doing interviews/reviews and designing a creative/fun website with your partner is pretty “sexy”, so I just put Peter and Alex up near the top of the list. Our parents are also inspirational couples. They each have successful careers and are committed to great organizations that help people. They raised beautiful families and still find time for each other. If we end up 1/2 like them we will be pretty “sexy” ourselves!

There really isn’t one issue we argue most about and we really don’t argue very often. When we do argue though the key for us to resolve it is by not holding a grudge and being able to talk about issues open and honestly.
8. What are three secrets which make your relationship successful?
First and foremost, we developed a very strong friendship before the thought of a relationship even occurred to us. Having that strong friendship first was a key factor in the success of our relationship. To this day we are still each others closest friend and confidant.
Secondly, we don’t hold grudges and always talk about any problems/issues we have within the relationship and in our lives. Having an open line of communication between us is crucial, since we are not only in a love relationship but also have a working relationship as DJs
We are huge goofballs and super nerds. We can always make each other laugh and can find fun in almost any situation.
