JACKSON PARK MEN’S CLUB
FEBRUARY TOURNAMENT SATURDAY 21st
IT’S TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW……..
THE TOMBSTONE TOURNAMENT!
Come and experience a new event this year that is sure to be both competitive and interesting. Here is how it will work……. We will play white tees and winter rules. Let’s say your handicap is 8 from the white tees at Jackson – you will receive an allotment of 70 (par) plus 8 (your handicap) for a total of 78 strokes. You play the course normally and when you hit your 78th shot your round is over. You then place your “tombstone” (flag) in the ground where that shot came to rest. The person who makes it the furthest around the course will be declared champion. If you are playing well you may make it all the way around 18 and literally tee off again until your strokes are used up. Playing not so good – you may be done with me on the back nine somewhere. This will be a fun new competition – don’t miss out!
Sign up by calling the pro shop by Thursday February 19th. Tournament fees will remain the same for 2015. A reminder that all men’s club memberships run through March and then need to be renewed. If you were a member in good standing for 2014 you can play this month as well. Don’t forget to renew your membership for 2015 and keep your GHIN handicap current and legitimate.
A special thanks to Josh Gaskell, general manager at Jackson Park, for suggesting and running this tournament for the club. Hope to see you all out on the course!
