Golf Tournament: Currently we have 54 players signed up. The soft cutoff will be 60 players and the hard cut off will be 72 players. This format won’t allow more than 72 players. That being said, we HAVE to get 60 players, so if you know anyone that might be interested in playing refer them to the details in a previous post on this blog.
Check-in for the event will be at 10 AM the morning of August 23. We will have a shotgun start at 11 AM. Please bring $50 cash for the entry fee and some extra cash if you want to purchase mulligans.
Coolers: Bowdon Golf Club does allow personal coolers but they ask that the coolers be appropriately sized to fit in the rear basket of the golf cart.
Pairings: Countries and pairings will go out by the end of the week. If we reach 60 players we will send communication that the target has been reached.
Play Format: Each team will play for a country; each country will have 3 teams. The country that accumulates the most points WINS. Each team will play in 2, 9 hole matches where the format will be a scramble match play. The objective is to score as many points as possible.
In this format there is no such thing as 3 and 2 loss, teams play all 9 holes. Point System: 1 point awarded if team wins the hole ½ point awarded to each team if the hole is halved. 1 point awarded to the overall match winner. If match is tied, ½ point will be awarded to each team. The point total should add up to 10 points per match.
Prizes: 1st place country will be the Weaver Cup Champions where ALL members will receive a Weaver Cup. 2nd place country will receive a smaller iteration of the Weaver Cup. 3rd place country will also get a trophy.
There will be closest to the pin contest on every par 3 and a long drive competition on hole 11.
Last, the country that best portrays their local fashion will get a prize. To receive the best dressed prize ALL MEMBERS OF THE COUNTRY must participate.
