Entry Fee and Fundraising
The entry fee is $500 per player or $1,000 per two-person team, which includes the day of golf, meals and snacks during the day and a dinner ticket for the golfer. Additional funds are raised through pledges solicited by the players to friends, family and co-workers. There is a competition between the players to see who can raise the most money.
The field is limited to the first 18 teams that commit to play by registering online and paying the entry fee.
The Format for the Day
A 100-hole two person scramble. It is very fast, a lot of fun, and an endurance test for anyone brave enough to become a "survivor." Each 18 holes is played in 90 minutes or less and there are golf and scoring contests during the day.
This event is open to men and women. Men play from a combination of white and gold tees and women play from red tees. There are no restrictions on the number of drives that must be used for each player. All putts inside three feet are gimmies.
Teams receive 20% of their total combined handicap. Stableford scoring per hole (net), with 6 points for double eagle, 4 points for eagle, 3 points for birdie, 2 points for par, 1 point for bogey.
Prizes and Contests
The first place team receives $200 club credit per player and a trophy, second place is $125 club credit per player, third place gets $75 club credit per player.
There is a skins event for a $50 per team buy-in with 50% to be paid for skins and 50% to be donated to CancerCare and the American Heart Association. If no skins are won, 100% goes to the charities.
