Another tremendous level of participation as 72 members are teeing it up in the 2022 Match Play competition. Is there a Saint Peter's lurking out there, someone who's putter gets hot at the right time and advances to the Sweet 16, Elite 8, or beyond? Let's tee it up and tip it off and see who's bracket gets busted and who will wear the crown!
Congratulations to all the winners in our Social Preseason Exhibition Warmup tournament. It was a beautiful day to start the season and it produced a couple of notable items: 56 of our 95 members - 60% - came out to play and we had our first hole-in-one of the season.
Now we turn our attention to the start of our Match Play competition on March 26th. Remember you do not have to be available to play on that Saturday - you would still have two weeks to get that first match in. There are two weeks left to register for Match Play, registration closes Sunday, March 20th. We had a complete field of 64 golfers last year so don't wait to register and run the risk of getting put on the waitlist.
We have a winner! The SPEW tournament produced our first winner of the year as Jeff Eaton scored his ace on hole seven with a five iron.
The ace was worth $630 and now it's time to re-up with $10 to Keith Morris for the next pot. We will grant a two week renewal window for any ace that gets made during that period. We (the current 63 hole-in-one members) would guarantee the same winnings during the renewal window while members have a chance to renew their membership and get their $10 in for the next hole-in-one.
It's time! Get those renewal memberships in, make sure you're GHIN is renewed for 2022, and lastly sign up for the first official event of the CGA season. This was our most highly attended event last year with 64 participants so get those registrations in early before we have to start waitlisting people.
This year we are looking to start the first round of matches for everyone on Saturday, March 26th. We'll reserve a block of tee times like we normally do and hopefully we can get the bulk of the first round matches completed that day. Of course if you can't make the official start day of 3/26 you can still sign up for the tournament and you would still have the normal 2 weeks to get your first match in. When you register online for the event, be sure to answer question 3 on the booking form and indicate Y or N as to whether you'll be able to play our first match on March 26th.
Since the survey vote was basically split down the middle as to single or double elimination, we are going to keep this event as single elimination for this year. We'll look to see if we can streamline the logistics of running this event and potentially going to double elimination next season.
