Celebrating our 29th year, this tournament holds the tradition of being one of the oldest in our region and is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the tri-county area. The date of this year’s tournament will take place September 16-17 and the registration deadline will be Wednesday, September 13 at 5:00 p.m. unless the maximum number is reached.
Tournament festivities will begin with the traditional “Pairing Party” Friday, September 15 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Miller’s Landing, our exceptional banquet facility located adjacent to the golf course. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and cold beverages, while meeting your teammates and competitors for the weekend.
The format of play for Saturday will be “Best Ball” using the best net ball of the foursome. On Sunday, the format of play will be 4-person Team Superball. Teams will be formed using a computerized “blind draw” system. We reserve the right to rank all participants into their A, B, C and D categories by golf ability using their United States Golf Association handicaps as the key criteria.
The first round of tournament play on Saturday will consist of a shotgun start for the first half of the field at 8:30 a.m. with the remaining half starting at 1:30 p.m. Note that each golfer will enjoy a meal before and after their scheduled round regardless of their tee time.
The field will again be divided for the second round of play on Sunday, this time by score, with the top half teeing off in the afternoon. All participants are invited to dinner and the awards ceremony, to be held immediately after play at approximately 5:30 p.m.
