TOURNAMENT OVERVIEW
 
The following is a brief summary of our tournaments for 2021. We hope to familiarize our members with a general description of every tournament. We will save the specifics for each event as they present during the year. We encourage everyone to participate, try different formats, make new friends and friendly foes, win Pro Shop credits, beautiful trophies and experience the fun and excitement of a St. George Tournament.
 
THE MAJORS

MEMBER/MEMBER
Probably our most popular event, the Member/Member consists of flights with six 2 man teams. Each team will play 5 nine hole matches against the opposing teams in their flight. The first day has 3 nine hole matches, the second day has 2. There is also a “skins competition” covering the first 18 holes and last 18 holes. Note: 50% of the pot will go towards gross skins. We will also have a pari-mutuel this year.
 
TWO DAY MEMBER/GUEST
This is our most lavish event, and one we hope to make better than ever. The pre – tournament day offers members and their guests an extra round of golf to acquaint and reacquaint everyone with the course and old friends. Members and their guests will play as partners in flights of six two man teams with 3 nine hole matches on the first day and 2 nine hole matches on the second. We also have a “skins competition”. Note: 50% of the pot will go towards gross skins. 

MEN’S OPENING TOURNAMENT
A great way to start the season, we have 4 man teams randomly selected with A-B-C-D players competing in a scramble format. There are prizes for the top teams, closest to the pin on the par 3’s and for the long drives.
 
MEN’S CLOSING TOURNAMENT
A great way to finish the season, we have 4 man teams randomly selected with A-B-C-D players competing in a stableford best – ball format. Every bogey, par, birdie, eagle etc. has a point value. The team with most points, wins! There are prizes for the top teams and closet to the pin on the par 3’s.
 
MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIP ( 55 & OVER )
Formerly called the Senior Championship, the Masters consists of 3 rounds of match play. This year we will have a qualifier for the Championship Flight,  Each competitor will play in flights of four based on handicap index. Flight winners receive a trophy.
 
MEN’S BEEFSTEAK
The Men’s Beefsteaks consist of foursomes where members form their own teams. They are welcome to bring up to three guests per foursome. It’s a shotgun afternoon start with prizes to the top teams followed by a delicious “beefsteak dinner”. This year we hope to vary the formats.
 
CIGAR  NIGHT
This is our most hedonistic event and the best deal in town. If you bring a guest to Cigar Night, he plays for free that afternoon. The format is the same for the Beefsteaks, followed by a spectacular multi – course dinner and an open bar
 
SHOOTOUT
 Simply put, the low 10 net qualifiers in the morning will compete in a 9 hole “shootout” in the afternoon, eliminating one player each hole. When a tie score occurs, a putt or chip off will determine the winner of the hole. Prizes to first and second place.
 
PLAY WITH THE PRO
Make your own threesome and sign up with one of our Professional Staff. Play as a team with a low net/ low gross score for each hole. You may do this with each of our Pros, and as often as you like. Three winning teams (one with each Pro) compete for the championship at the end of the season.
 
CROSS COUNTRY TOURNAMENT
This is our last event where 2 man teams compete in a 9 hole match with an alternative shot format. What makes this one different is that the holes literally cover a “Cross Country” such as hitting from the sixth tee to the seventh green. Prizes to the top teams.
 
TUESDAY MEN’S LEAGUE
Every Tuesday at 1:00 there is a randomly drawn shotgun tournament with a low-key best ball team format for any member interested.  Afterwards prizes for first and second place are distributed at the “Happy Hour Hors D’oeuvres” in the Grill Room.  To participate just notify the Pro Shop and you will be place on the notification list.  It is a great way to meet different members.
 
CONCLUSION
 
We look forward to an exciting and entertaining season. There is something for everyone and we hope all members will join in the fun. We will send future emails and notifications with specific details at the appropriate times. Finally, I wish to thank my Tournament Committee members for their time, effort and wisdom.
