2021 Players Club Tournaments
The Horn Rapids Players Club is proposing to sponsor six tournaments in 2021, starting in March 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:
Players sign up as individuals and 4-player teams are formed by a “Balanced Draw” process. The format is a standard scramble, with three drives required from each player, and a twist: a team may not take two consecutive shots from the same player (except for putts)
3-PLAYER YELLOW BALL
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.
2-PLAYER BETTER BALL
Players sign up as 2-player teams. Each player plays his/her own ball and the team records 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.
RED WHITE AND BLUE SCRAMBLE (Fourth of July Weekend)
This tournament is open to friends and family of Players Club members and is combined with a social event to attract new members. 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 (COVID permitting). Family members or significant others of the tournament participants are welcome to join the picnic at an additional charge.
PLAYERS CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP
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.
We’ll wrap up the year with a 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 his/her own ball into the hole. The team records the best gross and net scores on each hole.
