This is the club's main fundraiser. Monies raised are used to sponsor Junior Spanferkel (Jr. Golf Tournament) at the Town & Country Golf Course. Funds are also used to present a scholarship to a local high school senior.
Match Play (Singles) - (Double Point Event) All entrants are placed into one of three or four flights based on handicap (USGA). Once placed into the appropriate flight, brackets will be posted, and play begins. Play is head-to-head against a player of similar ability in an 18-hole handicapped match. The winner will advance to the next round until a champion is crowned in each bracket. All winners will be recognized at the Awards Banquet.
Match Play (Doubles) - The two-person teams are placed into a single bracket. After the brackets are posted, play will begin. Play is team against team in a handicapped 18-hole best ball match. The winning teams will advance to the next round until the champion is crowned. Winners will be recognized at the Awards Banquet.
Any 3 Clubs & 5 Iron - Putter Events - These two nine-hole events kick off mark the end of our golf season. Both earn participation points for Player of the Year but are really about the fun challenge of playing the entire nine-hole round with only 3 clubs of your choice or only your 5 Iron and Putter. There are hole prizes, a skins games, and an award for guessing your score.
Mexican Best Ball & End of Year Scramble - Teams of four players will be evenly balanced by USGA handicap by the tournament committee. Both events are a scramble format where all four players will hit from each location selecting the best shot and repeating the process until the ball is holed out. The Mexican Best Ball can also include a Mexican Buffet after golf.
Two Ball, Four Golfer Scramble - Teams of four players will be evenly grouped together by the tournament committee. This event is a scramble format where all four players hit their tee shot and then form two, two-golfer teams. The two teams play a two-golfer scramble to complete the hole. Their team score is the total of both two golfer’s teams scores. This process is repeated for each hole with potentially different two-golfer teams created on each hole.
T&C Cup - This is a Ryder Cup Style format where a randomly chosen 12-member team of club members (who get to use their handicap) will compete against a team of Golf Pros from the Pro Shop. Members chosen to play will need to play one of the first three dates and all must play on the final day. Events include a 2-person best ball, 2-person scramble and a 2-person alternate shot. The final day will be singles matches. A traveling trophy will be presented at the end of the event.
Triple Threat Scramble - Teams of three players will be evenly grouped together by the tournament committees. This event is a unique scramble type format. Each of the three players will tee off and then select the best tee shot. From this spot one player will play alone until he holes out and two players will play a scramble until they hole out. The score recorded is the total of the individual playing alone and the score of the two-player scramble team. Each player plays six holes as an individual and 12 holes as two player scramble team. The tournament committee will designate which holes the player plays as an individual and which players play as a team.
Six-Six-Six Event - Teams of two players will be evenly grouped together by the tournament committee. This event is three events in one. The first six holes are played as a 2-person best ball, the second six as a 2-person scramble and the final six as a 2-person alternate shot. Prizes will be awarded in each six-hole event as well as overall champions.
Red Tee Challenge - (typically a Double Point Event) This is an 18-hole stroke play event with competitors placed into one of three or four flights based on handicap (USGA). Stroke play within the brackets will be based on gross scores. All players will play from the Red Tees giving many players a fresh look at the golf course.
Chicago Stableford Team Event - (maybe a Double Point Event) This is an 18-hole stroke play team event with competitors placed into USGA handicap balanced foursomes. Each golfer starts with a negative point score based on their handicap. Then points are awarded on each hole; 1 point for a Bogey, 2 points for a Par, 3 points for a Birdie, 4 points for Eagle and 5 points for a Double Eagle. The total number of points earned by the team are compared to other team’s totals to determine the winning team.
Road Trip - (typically a Double Point Event) Each year the club schedules a golf outing at another golf course, typically out of town but within about an hour’s drive time. This is a handicapped stroke play event with a skins game. Prizes and points will be awarded for 3-4 flights of players grouped by handicap. Members are encouraged to invite guests to fill out the field.
Hole in One Club - Each member is eligible to join this special event for an additional fee of $35. One half of the fee is used to defray the cost of the Hole in One Banquet. The other half of the fee is used to award participants with cash prizes for getting holes in one.
Awards Banquet - This is an end of year social event beginning with a cocktail social hour, followed by dinner and the presentation of the year's awards. Spouses and significant others are welcome. The club subsidizes the cost of this event to reduce member cost.
Members are encouraged to play in as many events as they wish. There is no minimum number of events a member is required to play, but the more events a member plays, the better the chance the member can become Player of the Year (POY) There will be great competitive golf and great camaraderie for all that participate.
