Don’t forget this Sunday September 20th. is the Ryder Cup. Please sign up in the Pro Shop by noon on Saturday, Sept. 19.

There will be two teams, The Pro Shop Team with Brian Rands as the Captain against The Grounds Team with Steve White as the Captain.

The Captains will alternate picking players from the sign up sheet. They will send their players out in pairs alternating their match ups. Each player will play his own ball with the low gross winning the hole.

Play will end after 18 holes have been played. Unlike the Ryder Cup that has a limited number of players, we will play all players. Players of any handicap can participate, since the Captains will try to match up competing players with similar handicaps.
