The Team Northington flag is once again flying high outside the Men’s Grille after defeating Team Hill, 65 – 55, in the 13th Annual Cordillera Cup.
The Ryder Cup-style event proved to be very competitive again this year. Team Northington held a slim lead after Day 1 of Four Ball and Foursomes matches: Team Northington 32 – Team Hill 28. Day 2 consisted of 60 individual matches, which proved to be very competitive as well, with Team Northington 33 and Team Hill 27. Thank you to everyone who played in the event and once again helped make the Cordillera Cup a great success.
We are definitely in full-swing with our golf calendar. Our next big events coming up are the Ranch Round-Up Ladies Member-Guest, Club Championship and Senior Club Championship, and our new event taking the place of the Stampede called Ball and Chain Couples Member-Guest.
As you read this article, we have finalized all the planning for the Ranch Round-Up. This is a great event with a few new twists for this year. On Tuesday night — the Hoedown — our ladies will have the opportunity to jump on a mechanical bull and test their bull bucking skills. We will have caricature artists drawing pictures of the teams and a DJ which is sure to make for a great evening. On Wednesday afternoon, after completion of Round 1, ladies will be entertained by artists from Painting With A Twist for a day of painting and wine around the pool. This is sure to be a great time!
The biggest change to our calendar this year is the addition of our Ball and Chain Couples Member-Guest which is replacing the Stampede. Ball and Chain is a two-day member-guest event on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1. The format for this event will be Two Best Ball Eclectic Counting, one score from the men and one score from the women on each hole. The Eclectic format allows each team to replace a score on each hole with a lower score from Round 2. We are organizing this event to be just like our other member-guest events at the Club. The price for this event is set at $1,200 and includes tee gifts, prizes, lunch and dinner on Friday and breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Help us make this event a success.
All of this planning has been a lot of fun and the Golf Professional Team is excited to see these events quickly approaching. We need your participation to make all of the events a success, so come join us at the Club and on the course.
