It is always fun to enjoy the heat of competition, whether a serious tournament (see the first two below) or one that is built purely around fun (see the last). Go for it!
The Links at Brigantine Beach is hosting an ESPN National Golf Challenge event on Sunday, June 17. They’re looking for “America’s Best 2-Some” and multiple teams will advance to a regional qualifier. If you do well there, you can advance to the National Finals in Las Vegas.
Your entry fee is $60 ($40 if you are a Links member) and there are Gross, Net, and Senior Net divisions. More info is here.
Forsgate Country Club (pictured above) will be holding its inaugural R.A. Schiavone Memorial Cup on June 20 and 21, a Senior Amateur event that is really three events in one. It is a 2-day Senior Am (scratch) event and in round one the amateurs will be paired with New Jersey PGA Professionals. The Pros will play for a purse, and there will be prizes for Pro-Am aggregate scores in round one. Day two is Am’s only. Senior amateurs must have reached their 50th birthday on or before June 20th, 2012 with a handicap index of 8.0 or less. More info here in an article online in NJSGA Magazine… and to register or find out more, you can call Heifa Sirangelo at Forsgate: 732-656-8900 Ext. 1600.
Who Turned Out The Lights?
This one’s a little different…and it is tomorrow night. It is a night golf scramble at Bethlehem Golf Club that begins with a 7:30 steak dinner, followed by an 8:30 pm shotgun. Cost is $65 per player. If you have never played nite-lite golf, you should give it a try. It’s a hoot. Sign up by calling the golf shop at 610-691-9393.
There an effort gaining steam to restore Cobbs Creek Golf Club to its original design and give it a multi-million dollar facelift with private funding. I’ll pass along details and a link to a podcast tomorrow.
