As in last year’s successful event, there will be male and female flights in different age groups for the Long Drive Championship. There will be cash prizes for individual winners of each flight including a $500 prize for the overall Champion. There will also be a Net Championship where all the flight winners will compete against the overall winner with yardages added to their winning distance to equal the overall winner’s distance, so all will be equal from the start. The Net Championship winner will also receive a $500 prize. There will be a 1st ($100), 2nd ($75), and 3rd ($50) place prizes for the Closest-to-the Pin Contest.

Come on out and bring your clubs or come out to enjoy the competition. Either way, it will be a great time had by all. In the interest of public safety, we will be observing social distancing guidelines and face coverings are required even though the event is held out of doors.
