“Dog Fight” Wednesdays: each golfer is given a “quota” of points to pull based on handicap or average scores. To earn points: bogey = 1, par = 2, birdie = 4, and eagle and ace = 6. The player not able to card at least a bogey will pick up. The player with the highest + total, or the lowest – total is the winner. The game starts at 5:00 pm. How much to play? The cost is green fee + $10 for the prize fund.
Couples League: 5:00 pm shotgun start (pending how many players).
“Rush Hour Madness.” Tee off at 5:00 pm or later and pay only $5 and beers are only $1.50. Tell all your golf buddies about this one!
