The photo above is courtesy of Edith and Jerry Muir of Sunsites and shows Jerry Muir taking his turn while playing archery golf.
Jerry Muir and John Mathias tried out archery golf after a regular golf tournament in the spring of 1987.
In March 1988, two teams demonstrated the sport in the first organized archery golf tournament in Sunsites. Playing on the small executive course, John Mathias (golf) and Jim Cramer (archery) paired up to play against Troy Wilmoth (golf) and Jerry Muir (archery).
Although the teams were playing for fun, about 50 spectators followed the men around while they played.
