Next up on the golf calendar is the President's Cup & Fair Ladies Cup
on July 8th & 9th on Highland. If you haven't already done do, please sign up now. You can do it on line (yes you can) or you can call your bright, new Pro Shop staff.
As you know, this is a two day trophied event. You play the same course using the same tees (men: white; ladies-green/gold) and same pin positions on both days. Your lowest score for each hole is used to determine your best 18 hole score.
Trophies will be awarded for low gross and low net for both men and ladies. Second place finishers will also be recognized.
It really is a fun format. You have a second chance on day two to make up for any goofs on day one. This is our only event in which the golf gods allow a second chance. Who amongst us couldn't use a second chance on the golf course?
Ladies, please note that we have changed from using the green tees to using the green/gold tees. Maybe this will increase participation. In previous years we've had a good turnout for the Fair Ladies Cup but so far this year only a few women have signed up. We need to fix that.
Tee times on Saturday and Sunday start at 8am. We may use split tees on Sunday. The Pro Shop will let you know.
The entry fee for the event is just $35.00. Carts, food and beverage and green fees, if appropriate, are optional, separate charges for the members account.
There will be a complimentary fruit and beverage station at the 10th tee. After play on Sunday, there will an awards ceremony on the deck. Lunch will be available to participants for $12.00.
As always, walkers are welcome. And, yes, the event is open to both GAP and non GAP members with a current USGA handicap.
Folks, we are asking you to get the word out, recruit a buddy and sign up now
We look forward to seeing you on the golf course for the President's Cup & Fair Ladies Cup on July 8th and 9th.
In the meantime, Happy Fourth of July.
For the golf committee,
