2019 Men’s Club Tournaments
The Men’s Club will sponsor six tournaments in 2019, starting in April and ending in October. Each of the tournaments has a different format, and we hope that the variety will appeal to a broad range of players. Here’s the lineup:
OPENING SCRAMBLE (April 13, 2019)
Players sign up as individuals and teams are formed by a “Balanced Draw” process, so that each team has an A, B, C, and D player. The format is standard scramble, with three drives required from each player.
3-MAN YELLOW BALL (May 11, 2019)
Players sign up as 3-man teams (or as individuals, in which case they are assigned to a team). On each hole, one player plays his own ball (the “yellow” ball) and the other two play a 2-man scramble format. The “yellow” ball rotates from player to player as the team progresses through the holes.
RAPID RYDER (June 22-23, 2019)
This two-day tournament captures the spirit of the Ryder Cup. Two large teams are created and face each other over two days in match play. On Saturday we’ll have 9 holes of four-ball and 9 holes of foursomes, and Sunday features 18-hole individual match play. Everyone on the winning team gets a prize!
2-MAN BEST BALL (July 20, 2019)
Players sign up as 2-man teams. Each player plays his own ball and the team writes down the best score between the two players. If we have a large enough field, we’ll split this tournament into two flights, one for low handicappers and one for high handicappers.
MEN’S CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP (September 14-15, 2019)
This is the big one! Players can sign up for the Open Division, the Senior Division (age 55+), or the Super Senior Division (age 65+). The format is 36 holes of individual stroke play and the prizes are the richest out of all of the tournaments. Winners get their names engraved in the Championship Plaque and have their Men’s Club fees waived for 2020.
CLOSING SHAMBLE (October 19, 2019)
We’ll wrap up the year with shamble tournament. Players sign up as individuals and teams are formed by the “Balanced Draw” process. In a shamble format, a team may use its best drive (like scramble), but after that, everyone plays their own ball into the hole and the team records the best score.
