Time to hit the links on Friday with a double shotgun golf tournament at Pronghorn Resort in Bend, Oregon, on August 3rd, 2018.
The event kicks off with a double shotgun golf tournament at the award winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Course.
As you put your foursome together, you can choose between an AM tee time at 7:30am or a PM time at 1:15pm. Golfers must either establish a tournament handicap by submitting three recent scorecards, have a GHIN number with the USGA or accept a tournament handicap of zero if they are unable to do either.
Tee prizes and gifts will be given to each player, in addition you will have hole sponsors spread throughout the course that will be serving drinks and food on select tee boxes. Players will also enjoy a continental breakfast for the morning round and a bbq lunch between rounds. On course prizes will consist of closest to the pin contests on par three holes, longest drives for men and women and more.
Gross & Net Division – Team Shamble Format
- Handicaps: Each player will have their handicap for the round, there is no team handicap. If you do not have a USGA handicap you must bring three scorecards to the tournament director to establish a tournament handicap.
- Drives: The team must use a minimum of 2 tee shots from each player in the foursome.
- Format: The format for 2018 is a shamble. In a shamble format you select the best shot off the tee, then play individual stroke play until each member of the group has holed out. You may place the ball within one club length of the drive you choose, no closer to the hole. You may not improve your lie from one cut to another. After you select your drive and play from that position, summer rules apply during the stroke play portion of each hole.
- Tees: Women play from the ladies (forward) tees and men from the member tees as marked.
The entry fee for the Skins Game is $80 per team ($20 per player but the entire team must enter). 55% of the pot will be donated to The Classic beneficiaries and the remaining 45% of the pot will be awarded to the lowest gross and net skins during the two rounds of play on Friday, broken up evenly. Skins will be awarded for low gross and net scores on each hole, as a team score. Skins are awarded to the foursome as a team to split amongst the members as they see fit. Two team members cannot cancel eachother out by recording the same score on a hole. In the rare chance that no skins are won during the day in either division then the entire pot will be donated to The Classic beneficiaries.
