Pity the poor Certified Public Accountant. Wonkishly dull, they say. Obsessed with arcana. Underdeveloped sense of humor.

And whatever you do, don’t mess with a CPA’s workspace, because everything is exactly where it belongs.

Yeah, well, the folks at the accounting firm Curchin Group LLC hope to take a divot out of the stereotype next week.


Next Thursday, Sept. 21, they’ll put their green eyeshades to new use when they host what they’re calling the first annual Curchin Open, an indoor miniature golf tournament for charity.

That’s right, indoors. In their offices. With holes laid out to look like dollar signs and calculators stuck between the desks. Not to mention the best amenities of a clubhouse. Namely, food and booze.

We’ve seen some of what’s coming, and it’s pretty imaginative and fun by the standards of any workplace. They’ve even got a practice putting green to get you ready for the 9-hole course.

Playing a round costs just $20, and mulligans will set you back a buck apiece. All the money raised will be divided between Michael’s Feat, an organization devoted to helping the parents of seriously ill newborns in Monmouth and Ocean counties, and the Boy Scouts of America Monmouth Council.


First tee-off is at 4p and the competition runs until 7.

Curchin is at 125 Half Mile Road in Lincroft, first floor. For more information about participating, e-mail Pete Pfister or call him at 732-747-0500.
