2022 Players Club Tournaments

The Horn Rapids Players Club has scheduled six tournaments in 2022, 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:

OPENING SCRAMBLE (March 26)

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 (April 23)

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 3-SIXES (May 14)

Players sign up as 2-player teams. The format changes every six holes: holes 1-6 are scramble format, holes 7-12 are better ball, and holes 13-18 are Chapman format.  If we have a large enough field, we’ll split this tournament into two flights, one for low handicap teams and one for high handicap teams.

RED WHITE AND BLUE SCRAMBLE (July 2)

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 (September 10-11)

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 8)

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 March.
