The 9th Annual C-Star Member-Guest was held October 16-18 and once again was the highlight event on the golf calendar. A full field of 60 teams competed over 3 great days on the Cordillera Ranch Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.
The format this year once again had teams playing five 9-hole matches against other teams in their flight. All of the flight winners then competed in the LoneStar Shoot-Out to determine the winners of the event. The format has been well received by participants as it gives everyone a chance to play with numerous different people during the course of the competition.
The weather for the tournament was outstanding all three days, with plenty of sunshine and temps in the low 80’s. Director of Agronomy Mark Semm and the entire Golf Course Maintenance team had the golf course in fantastic shape.
After the practice round on Thursday morning, the fun began with the popular Horserace. This is an Alternate Shot format with four-man teams competing against eachother; mostly for pride but really just not to embarrass themselves in front of everyone else in the tournament! Highlighting the Players Pool party on the first evening was a Skills contest for all participants. An Aces putting tournament was held for the first time along with chipping, bunker play and a Glow-in-the-Dark Long Drive contest!
