Golf season to kick off at Cherry Creek golf course

The season kicks off with golf shamble on March 12

The golf season kicks off Sunday, March 12 with the annual Cherry Creek Shamble. This will be a tune-up game for the Men’s Club, which starts on Sunday, March 26. This is a four-man event where you pick your own team. A shotgun start is at 9 a.m. It promises to be a fun day. The cost is $15 for members and $25 for guests. Each player is responsible for his own lunch.

The format is as follows; all players tee off on every hole, choose which drive you want to use, then all players play their own ball until holed out.

All golfers will play their own ball tee to green on the par 3’s. Everyone is to use their full handicap and must contribute at least two drives each to a maximum of five. The best net and best gross will be counted on each hole, but it can’t be the same player.

Sand traps are rake and place and you must putt out, unless you are out of the hole.
