This is a Member/Guest event and there are no restrictions on who/what the guest can be. It can be a husband, sister, friend, etc. Play Format will be a SHAMBLE. A Shamble format tournament can be played with teams of 2, 3, or 4, we will be playing in teams of 4. In a Shamble each golfer tees off on every hole. The team then selects their best drive and each team member plays their second shot from there. After the second shot each golfer plays their own ball for the remainder of the hole. For example, players A, B, C & D are on a team, ALL players tee off, A hit the better drive so they select to take their second shot from A’s spot, ALL players again hit from A’s spot, and from then on through the end of hole each player will play their own balls throughout the rest of the hole.

If you don’t have partners we will match you up.

It's July so let's celebrate independence wearing Red, White and Blue!
