After reviewing available dates, trying to accommodate everyone's
schedules and talking to a few of you; here is what I think will work.
Location: Hartland Glen - M-59 2 Miles East of US-23
Date: July 8 or 9 - most likely Sunday the 9th
Tee time: 8 AM - North Course 1 - 1:30 PM South Course
Cost: $60 for 36 Holes - Including Cart - this is $20 off the normal
Food and Drink: You buy your own - or win it from the Canadians! :-)
Format: Match play (CAN/AM Cup) and a medal play format - handicaps
Handicap: For those who have one we will use them. Americans add 3
strokes - Canadian Team - Subtract 6! Seriously, lets be gentlemen
here and be honest if you do not have a verifiable handicap. If you
exaggerate you will play hell on RSG - know what I mean? :-)
Prizes: I think for this outing they are not necessary. But, if
someone wants to donate some - they would be accepted!
Skins: YES - BUT YOUR OPTION IF YOU WANT TO GET IN OR NOT
Other Possible bets: Strictly your option - maybe a buck for each of
closest to the pin, longest drive etc. Need to know your opinions on
Other betting: That is up to you! But be sure to get strokes from
Inglis and Sneddon - consider yourself forewarned!! :-)
Trophy: One for CAN/AM, One for Medal - I will donate them -
guaranteed value of over $0.01 Total - don't expect much!! Its the
bragging rights that count..
TALK IT UP!! If you have friends that would wish to play - please
feel free to invite them. This is for fun and new friendships.
DEADLINE: I would like to know by 6.30.00 if you can make it or not -
as I have to confirm tee times etc.
Inasmuch as we have to get teams for the CAN/AM competition this will
be on a first committed first available basis. In other words if
there are only 6 guys from Canada and 8 from the US then only the
first 6 from the US can compete against the 6 Canadians for the "Cup".
ALL people interested will be able to play!! We will find some way to
juggle the groups - with exception of the Cup teams.
Payment: You pay the course upon arrival.
Playing Partners: Who knows - luck of the draw!
Future: If this works out - as I suspect it shall - we will try for
another outing in the Fall. Location to be determined.
If you need to share a ride with someone email me and I hopefully I
can let you know of others coming from your area.
If you can think of anything else please email me.
Lets talk Golf!!
