RE: 2018 Men’s Member-Guest (Friday July 20th – Sunday July 22nd)
The 2018 Red Hook Golf Club Men’s Member-Guest tournament is scheduled for Friday July 20th through Sunday July 22nd. The tournament has increased in participation over the past few years growing from 86 participants in 2016, to 106 participants in 2017, and hopefully we’ll reach our goal of 120 participants (60 teams) in 2018! We thank you in advance for supporting this tournament.
The 2018 Men’s Member-Guest Tournament fee is $350/team.
Please make checks payable to “RED HOOK GOLF CLUB”, and mail to the club at 650 Route 199, Red Hook, NY 12571.
You can also pay in cash or drop checks off to Head Pro Doug Wiltsie in the Pro Shop. (Please do not send cash through the U.S. Mail.)
The tournament fee includes the following:
- All golf and carts for the entire weekend (including the Friday practice round)
- Buffet dinner on Friday
- Breakfast before play on both Saturday and Sunday
- Deli lunch on Saturday, and a barbecue lunch following play on Sunday
- Range and practice facilities available all weekend
- 2018 RHGC Member-Guest gifts
PLEASE SIGN UP AND SUBMIT PAYMENT BY SUNDAY JULY 1, 2018, YOUR TIMELY SUBMISSION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AS IT WILL HELP US WITH ORDERING TOURNAMENT GIFTS WITH FEWER ISSUES.
As the deadline approaches we will begin to cut off the field to make even flights of 6 teams per flight. Once a flight is filled with 6 teams, subsequent teams signing up after that will be placed on a waiting list until another even number of 6 teams have signed up. The maximum number of teams for the Member-Guest tournament will be set at 60 teams.
FRIDAY JULY 20th
PRACTICE ROUND / CALCUTTA / BUFFET DINNER
To kick off the weekend, there will be an optional Practice Round held on Friday July 20th. Tee times for the practice round will be available from early morning until about 1:30 PM, with the goal that people will be finished in time for the dinner (approximately 6:00 PM) and Calcutta (approximately 7:00 PM) later that evening. As part of the practice round, there will be an optional team better ball event in which cash prizes will be paid out for both gross and net. There will also be a cash skins event for both gross and net during the practice round. Participation in the side events during the Practice Round is optional. Entry fee into the side events are not included in the event fee.
The cash Calcutta will be held directly after dinner on Friday evening. A new wrinkle to the Calcutta for this year: you can purchase your team for a set fee of $350 cash. This cash payment must be made prior to the start of the Calcutta auctioneering, or else your team is placed back into the teams being auctioned off. (DO NOT SEND ANY CALCUTTA PAYMENT IN WITH YOUR TOURNAMENT FEE! YOU CAN PAY IN THE PROSHOP AHEAD OF TIME OR AT THE START OF THE CALCUTTA). More details to follow.
SATURDAY JULY 21st – SUNDAY JULY 22nd
- The Men’s Member-Guest tournament will consist of a “round robin” 2-PERSON TEAM BETTER BALL MATCH PLAY in which you will play each team within your flight one time.
- There will be three (3) 9 hole matches on Saturday, and two (2) 9 hole matches on Sunday.
- All play will take place from the WHITE tees.
- All scoring will be conducted based on NET scores.
- Each 9 hole match will be worth 10 points.
- Each hole won within the match is worth 1 pt
- Each hole halved within the match is worth ½ pt
- An outright win of the match is worth an additional 1 pt
- A halve of the match is worth an additional ½ pt
- Team with the most accumulative points at conclusion of the “round robin” will be the flight winner.
- The respective flight winners will then play off to determine the overall 2018 Men’s Member-Guest Winner.
Additional details and event agenda will be provided in advance of the tournament.
Additional guests are invited to the Friday night buffet dinner ($25/add’l guest), and Sunday barbecue ($15/add’l guest). Please submit additional guest information on the appropriate spot on the Member-Guest Form (next page).
Foster’s 19th Hole has hired a band for Saturday night (July 21st); we encourage attendees and any other guests to come out and enjoy the festivities. More details to follow on potential dinner specials that night.
Please join us for what we know will be a fun-filled event to showcase our club to be enjoyed by both the Red Hook Golf Club members and their guests.
