Event Description


That's right boys, the toughest tournament is back!  One on One handicaped match play with the winner scoring the biggest payday of the YEAR!!  Think of basketballs March Madness, winners get paid and move on, losers go home.  Welcome to  "THE DUEL IN THE PARK".

This is a handicapped event so everyone can play and be competitive reguardless of handicap index.

Entries are now OPEN for the Club Match Play Tournament which starts July 8th.  This year the event will be played using a more compact schedule but we will still be able to include those that have to miss a scheduled date.  Here's the tournament schedule:
