2023 Players Club Tournaments

The Horn Rapids Players Club has scheduled six tournaments in 2023, starting in April and ending in October.  The tournaments have a variety of formats, which we hope will appeal to a broad range of players.  Here’s the lineup:

OPENING SCRAMBLE (April 1)

Players sign up as individuals and 4-player teams are formed by a “Balanced Draw” process.  The format is a standard scramble and although there is no minimum number of drives required per player, there’s a twist: a team may not take two consecutive shots from the same player (except for putts)

3-PLAYER YELLOW BALL (April 29)

Players sign up as 3-player teams (or as individuals, in which case they are assigned to a team).  On each hole, one player plays his/her own ball (the “yellow” ball) and the other two play a 2-player scramble format.  The “yellow” ball rotates from player to player as the team progresses through the holes.

FOUR-BALL MATCH PLAY (May 20)

*New for 2023*  This will be a match play tournament in which 2-player teams compete against each other for the best net score on each hole.  Players will be initially assigned to one of two “sides,” and the captain for each side will choose the teams and the pairings for his/her side.  The individual teams compete head-to-head within their respective foursomes and also earn points to decide which of the two sides wins the grand prize.

RED WHITE AND BLUE SCRAMBLE (July 1)

This tournament is open to friends and family of Players Club members and is combined with our annual picnic. Players of all ages are invited to this 4-player scramble tournament, which will be played from the forward tees. The Fourth of July picnic following the round will be hosted by the Players Club. Family members or significant others of the tournament participants are welcome to join the picnic at an additional charge.

PLAYERS CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP (August 18-20)

This is the big one!  Players can sign up for the Men’s Open Division, Ladies Division, Men’s Senior Division (age 55+), or Men’s 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 on the Championship Plaque and are invited to play in the WA Golf “Champion of Champions” tournament at the Home Course in DuPont, WA.

CLOSING SCRAMBLE (October 7)

We’ll wrap up the year with a traditional scramble tournament.  Players sign up as individuals and teams are formed by the “Balanced Draw” process. The format will be similar to the Opening Scramble in April.
