Mixed Blind Draw Teams Stableford Event

The new season is upon us.  Get back into the groove by entering the Opening Day Tournament on Sunday 21 January.

This event is a fun competition that you could still win even if you are not playing your best.  You just need your fellow team members to do well.  However, there’s a catch!  You won’t know who your fellow team members are until teams are drawn live in the clubrooms after all the scores are in.

Enter in the shop before 08:30 on Sunday morning and you’ll go in a draw for your playing group.  Groups and starting tees will be announced at 08:45 ready for a Shotgun start at 09:00.

Your playing group is not your team.  After your round scan your card then your Stableford score will then be entered into the teams draw.  Teams will be drawn as soon as possible after all scores are in.  During the teams draw, the individual Stableford scores of each team member will be totalled to arrive at the team score.

Men will play off the white tees, ladies off the yellow.

Event entry fee is $10.

In keeping with this being a fun event, we invite members to bring guests to compete in this event (guests need to have an NZGA handicap and will pay green fees as well as the event entry fee).
