2024 C-Star

The 2024 C-Star was held April 18th through the 20th where we had 60 teams battling it out for a guaranteed spot next year, their name on the rock in the Champions Gallery, a flight named after them and the famous Clint Orms belt buckles. Mother Nature tried to get in our way a little — don’t get me wrong, we’ll take all the rain we can get … just not doing our member/guest! Fortunately, we were able to get the tournament in (with a few modifications), and we hope everyone had a great time.

We start with an optional practice round on that Thursday followed by a putting competition and the stag party. This year, we shortened the putting competition to 9-holes, split the field over the back and front nines, and setup the putts extremely hard. We always try to get a little creative with the stag party, so this year we had it down at the practice park and featured a professional drone racing exhibition with FPV pilots from all over Texas. 

On Friday, we played three nine-hole matches followed by two nine-hole matches on Saturday, along with a shootout.  Due to the inclement weather, we shortened the two Saturday matches to six-holes each, which allowed us to dodge the storm and still play the full five-hole shootout. Congrats to our flight winners who advanced to the shootout.

Nicklaus Flight – Doyle Dommert / Gil Radtke

Riverwalk Flight – Matt Childs / Mike Halford

Harpole Flight – Brad Larsen / Andy Althoff

Rodeo Flight – Hugh Ross / Bob Yosaitis

Wrangler Flight – Omar Palomin / John Miller

Our traditional C-Star Shootout rotation is #10, #11, #16, #17 and #18 — two teams are eliminated on each hole and the format is alternate shot (odds & evens). Generally speaking, this was some of the best golf played in a men’s Shootout since I’ve been at Cordillera Ranch! The Cordillera Flight and Harpole Flight champions were eliminated on #10 and the Guadalupe Flight and Hill Country Flight fell victim to the short par-4 11th hole. The 16th hole has ended many Shootout runs over the years, and it took the legs out from under our Nicklaus Flight and Riverwalk Flight champions this year. The Lonestar Flight champions won a chip-off on #17 to advance to #18 where they defeated the Wrangler Flight champions to claim the overall victory.

Congrats to Richard Jackson and Rick Derauf!
