Welcome to  "Annual 3 Clubs and a Putter" golf tournament, taking place at the scenic Balboa Park Golf Course! Get ready to tee off on February 28th, 2024, but don't you dare bring your entire club collection - it's time to get minimalist!

Weather Forecast: Mother Nature seems to have a sense of humor too! The forecast for the morning of February 28th is sunny with a touch of whimsy. Expect a comfortable temperature, perfect for those who like their golf with a side of sunshine. Remember to bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, and maybe a hat that says, "I'm a serious golfer...with only 3 clubs!"

The Rules: You can only bring three clubs and a putter. That's right, just THREE clubs. Why? Because who needs a full set when you can challenge your golfing prowess (and patience) with limited tools? Choose your three clubs wisely – it's like picking your favorite children, but harder.

The Comedy: Having more clubs doesn’t always mean lower scores, it just means more options to blame for your bad shot! Ever heard someone say, “I would have hit that better if I had my 7.5 iron”? Neither have we. So, in the spirit of fun (and a bit of sarcasm), we’re keeping it simple.

Teeing Off: We'll be hitting from the white tees – because let's face it, we're not all PGA pros. The white tees are like the middle child: not too intimidating, but still a challenge, especially when you're trying to decide whether to use your hybrid, iron, or just throw the ball (just kidding, no throwing allowed).

Remember, it's all about strategy, creativity, and a little bit of luck. Who knew golf could be a mental game? Oh wait, every golfer ever.

So, grab your favorite three clubs (plus a putter), wear your most outrageous golf attire, and get ready to swing, miss, laugh, and maybe even hit a few good shots. See you at the first tee!

Team Format - Alternate Shot

2 Man Team Event - Alternate Shot

Alternate Shots - Alternate Shot, also called Foursomes, is a competition format in which 2-person teams alternate hitting the same ball. The first player tees off, the second player hits the second shot, the first player hits the third shot, and so on until the ball is holed.

Rules For This Tournament:

1. Alternate Drives - No matter who ends a hole, you will alternate the person hitting the drive based on the previous hole. It will be ok to have a player, tap in a putt and then hit the drive on the next hole, IF that player didn't hit the drive on the hole they just tapped in on. So think about the holes that need to have clearing drives, if you are bringing your sweetie!

2. Mixed Teams - If your guest player is a lady, or a beginner. They may hit from the Reds. 

3. Penalty Shots - If Player A hits it into the water, the drop will be used as Player B's shot and then Player A will hit the shot. Effectively allowing the player to hit twice in a row. 

4. Balls - You will play the entire hole with the same ball, you will not be allowed to switch out balls in the middle of the hole based on the player hitting. Unless you hit it in the water, and you would need to play a new ball.

Guys, I can get a flock of you in to a super nice course now known as The Heights (formerly Bernardo Heights Country Club).

I'll probably have 30 openings so jump aboard.

Team Format

 It's the annual Pinehurst, which if memory serves me is a two man alternate shot event.  You both tee off, you then hit your partners drive, then pick whichever ball is in a better, then (this is important), whoever's ball you choose, you alternate shots on that ball into the hole.  An example would be Players A & B tee off on the 1st hole.  Player A hits Player B's drive onto the green, then Player B hits Player A's drive really close to the hole, so you choose that ball.  Player A will now try to make that putt, but if he misses, Player B must tap it in.  Then you do that all over again on all the holes.  This will not be a postable round.  And you need a partner, so that is something you could put in the Request box after you enter, preferably after reaching out to said potential partner before you enter.

10am Shotgun - in conjunction with The Chili Dippers

We have been able to arrange a new Away Event for this date:

Balboa members are invited to play (and bring a friend to play if you'd like) at La Valle Coastal Club (formerly Morgan Run CC) in Del Mar.

We have openings for approximately 20 players. First come (and paid), first served!

Cost is $90. This amount should be paid by 12/24 via Venmo (@Peter-Berk), or Zelle or PayPal (berkabee@happyaccidents.net), as I, on behalf of all players that day, need to make a deposit and final payment to the course well before the event date itself.

Should there be enough Bal players to have a competition, an additional prize fund amount, usually $20, would be withdrawn from your Bal Club Credits account.

BTW: The Chili Dippers play virtually every Monday (unless it's a holiday, then it's Tuesday) at a wide variety of courses around San Diego county. We played 23 different courses during 2023! Cost to join $25 a year. Glad to have you and friends join. 

Peter Berk,

Co-Director of the Chili's (and former 2010-21 Director of the Balboa Men's Club Weekday Events
