March marks the beginning of the busy spring golf season here in South Texas. Not only is it a great time to come out and play with some clients or friends when the golf course is in fantastic shape, but we also have a number of events that highlight the tournament calendar.
The 12th Annual Cordillera Cup will take place March 24-25 this year. Team Northington will once again be defending their title as they have dominated the event since its inception. This Ryder Cup-style competition continues to be the most popular tournament we host with 120 players competing last year. What makes this event so special is the team competition and ribbing that takes place amongst the two teams. We are looking forward to another great event this year.
In April we will once again continue to host our One-Day Member-Guest tournament series beginning with The Master’s. We continue these events throughout the year during each of the four major championships. The first tournament is scheduled for Friday April 6 and Members may bring up to three guests in forming a team. There is always an excitement in the air as we celebrate The Master’s Tournament and put our spin on it here at Cordillera Ranch. I hope you can join us.
Our Blockbuster Demo Day is set for Saturday April 7 from 9:00am – 3:00pm. We have continued to add new things to this event each year so that it is more than just trying out new clubs, and this year will be no different. We will once again have a fantastic group of manufacturers on hand at the Practice Park displaying the latest in golf equipment technology. Special discounts are available on all hard good orders placed that day only. Complimentary hot dogs and sodas will be available so come have some fun with us on that day.
Cordillera Ranch will be participating in the Texas Towne Matches once again this year on April 10-11. The Top 7 finishers from the 2017 MGA Cup and myself will compete against some of the finest Club’s in Texas in the matches. The spring session will be played at Miramont and Bluejack National, and teams from Escondido, Spanish Oaks and Carlton Woods will also be represented. It is a wonderful experience for our members to play some great courses and get to know other members from those Clubs. Many of the same individuals have played over the years and lasting friendships have been formed. I look forward to playing with the guys each year and it is always special. The fall Matches will take place in November.
The CWGA will be hosting their second tournament of the year with the Fiesta Tournament on April 18-19. No doubt the ladies know how to ring in Fiesta each year during this tournament!
The El Compadre Member-Member Tournament takes place April 27-28 this year. A couple of years ago we added a Ladies Division to the event, and the Casino Night and Awards party on Saturday are always popular.
As you can see, we have some great events to participate in so come out and play some golf!
See you on the course,
