2020 Players Club Tournaments
The Horn Rapids Players Club is proposing to sponsor six tournaments in 2020, 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. Each tournament includes an award luncheon. 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. Prizes are awarded for gross and net team scores.
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 their 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.
RED WHITE AND BLUE SCRAMBLE (Fourth of July Weekend)
The tournament is a handicapped competitive format combined with a social event to encourage participation in the Horn Rapids Players Club. This 4-player scramble format tournament is open not only to Horn Rapids Players Club (Regular, Associate, and Junior) but also participants from the Horn Rapids Couples League and relatives of Horn Rapids Players Club members. 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.
2-PLAYER BEST BALL
Players sign up as 2-player teams. Each player plays their 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.
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 have their Players Club membership fee waived for 2021.
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 their own ball into the hole and the team records the best score. Prizes are awarded for gross and net team scores.
