The golf calendar for 2020 is going to look a little different than in years past as the Cordillera Cup is moving to the fall and the C-Star Member/Guest is moving to the spring. To kick off the year, we are introducing a new event — the Couples Putting Tournament on February 22. This event will be open to all Club members and will be a very fun 2-person best ball putting tournament. We will use all 18 greens on the golf course and it will be a low stress round of golf since we are only putting on each hole. This will be a great opportunity to spend a day on the golf course with your spouse or significant other and experience our new greens. Although champions will be crowned, our goal is to create a fun environment for avid and new golfers to enjoy the game together.
Starting on March 19, we are going to introduce a new weekly event called the Shooter. It’s a 9-hole Thursday night scramble that will be open to all adult golf members and will run through October 29. We will payout the team with the lowest score and skins each week unless there is a tie — then the pot will rollover to the next week. This will be a great opportunity to meet new members and enjoy the game in an entertaining environment.
A new event slated for November 7, called the La Familia, will be multi-generational family event. Teams will consist of the whole family, from grandparents down to grandchildren. The field will be paired in large groups of 8-12 players per group so you can play with all of your family members. This event will be all about fun, enjoyment of the game and camaraderie. We plan to make this a staple event on the Cordillera Ranch golf calendar.
In addition to new golf events next year, we will be introducing Operation 36 to Cordillera Ranch. Operation 36 is a golf development program designed around learning how to shoot 36 on 9-holes. We will have weekly lessons, testing and playing components. This program will be targeted at junior golfers and parts of the program will be integrated into Chicks & Sticks. We will have more details about Operation 36 soon.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year, and I’ll see you on the course!
