If you won an event this season (or last year's T of C), then you are invited to play in this cash-rich extravaganza!
1/4 of the field will be A players, 1/4 B, 1/4 C and you guessed it, 1/4 D determined on Wednesday the day after the sign-up window closes and announced shortly thereafter.
2 scores each hole will be used for each team.
A bit of extra $$ is intended to be paid out to help motivate you to sign-up.
Teams have been made by blind draw!
Enuf is enuf...Individuals are fine but being abused by your playing partner is....better? No, just challenging.
Jump aboard and see who han-and-eggs it better than the rest.
1 rotating player hits from the Red Tee each hole (1st, 5th , 9th, 13th, 17th) and his score counts, with his 3 partners playing from the whites and 1 of their score counts, effectively making it Better 2 Balls of 4.
The other 3 partners rotate to the Red Tee (2nd, 6th, 10th, 14th, 18th; 3rd, 7th, 11th, 15th; 4th, 8th, 12, 16th).
I haven't yet decided if the progression of players hitting from the Red Tees is according to Low H/C or a random draw!!!
Both players drive, pick the best one. Both players hit again from that new spot, pick the best one. Continue this process until the ball goes in.
IF YOU CAN WALK, PLEASE DO SO: There will be players later in the round who CANNOT walk and need a cart, so help make one available for them.
Email a CLEAR COPY of the scorecard to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately after the round. Failure to do so can result in disqualification.
If a player of the team cannot finish the round, please advise me as soon as that happens and the remaining player is to play 2 balls for all remaining shots and chose the one to play from until the ball is holed, as though that his 2nd shot was that of his teammate. Modification of h/c will result.
FRIDAY 5/8 Update:
Several Items Of Significance:
Carts (first to all ADA, then 55 and over and now all golfers) have been authorized by the County BUT THE COURSE DOES NOT CURRENTLY HAVE FULL STAFF TO MAKE CARTS AVAILABLE TO ALL PLAYERS. This could change but it is not likely to before Wednesday's event.
So, IF YOU ARE ABLE TO WALK, please do so.
You may want to bring a bottle of hand sanitizer.
If you are to be walking a likely to need a hand-cart, the coiurse only has 13 hand carts available so plan to bring your own.
Once you start putting, putt out.
We are going to be playing from the traps: You may lift and smooth the sand with your foot, then replace the ball within proximate distance to where it landed.
At least for this event, the maximum score you are to take on a hole is to be a Double Bogey plus the stroke(s) you get on the hole, currently known as NET DOUBLE BOGEY. When that is the best you'll do, pick up and move on; we do not want to have slow play: that will result in a suspension for a yet-to-be-determined period of time..
Pick up 2 scorecards per group, match them at the end of the round and take a picture of it and send 1 via to me at email@example.com WITHIN 30 MINUTES OF COMPLETING YOUR ROUND
It's 4/15 and no word from the city/course of a startling reopening so this event is canceled.
Should soething incredible happen to change this:
We will contact membership vis this website, Club News and Events Signup invitations the moment we hear an event is likely to be playable and I'd hope you'd sign up quickly at that point.
stay tuned for Coming Events
I hope you so the update sent yesterday: This organized Balboa event is Canceled, though individual tee times can be made at RBI if you still want to play.
At the moment the course expects to be open and restrict carts to Cart Paths Only.
That certainly is subject to revision!
If we have Cart Paths Only, as hoped for, I'd still expect (and grant) withdrawal TODAY by 4 pm. PLEASE NOTIFY ME ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org
If Carts are not to be made available (which I would expect to hear about around 6 am tomorrow morning), I will cancel the event; I would advise you as soon as I hear.
FINAL PAIRINGS AND TEE TIMES ARE NOW ON-LINE.
Pretty simple. Pick any 3 clubs (something to drive with, something to hit fairway shots with, and one of your wedges?) and your putter, dig out your little carry bag, fill it with some tees and golf balls, and lets go enjoy this always fun day of the season.
Any more than 3 clubs and a putter in your bag will result in a disqualification.
We're playing it down.
Late arrival at First Tee will result in 2 stroke penalty: the Pro SHop will be advising me of violators.
Slow play will be penalized. Put your Finish Time on your card: upper right corner.
5th Flight: Pick up after you cannot achieve less that 10 and enter 10 on your scorecard and move on. This is a Pace of Play assist.
Our annual 2-man Pinehurst. You know the routine...or I'll remind you, if you need it.
Pick a partner or I'll match you up with a likely candidate.
Go for it!
It's a New Year but the rewards are going to be at least as great as the year just ending/ended.
So grab your fingers and peck your way into those "bringing it" (and a possible hangover) for the Beginning of the Year Event, the day after our Annual Dinner!
