YEAR END INVITATIONAL

December 28, 2019 and December 29, 2019 @ We-Ko-Pa
AZ

Join us in Arizona to compete for two days on a couple of championship golf courses consistently ranked in top ten public courses in the state.  
 
Teams will consist of two players. The first day will be played as best ball and the final round will be played as individuals. Total team score will combine all three scores. Stableford scoring with all rounds handicapped.

Points  Net Score
 0 Double Bogey or Higher
 1 Bogey 
 2 Par 
 3 Birdie 
 4 Eagle 
 5  Albatross 

The top teams in each division, Gross and Net, will take home the trophies and prizes. Divisions will be determined once field is established. Co-Ed teams will be in a separate division.

We will also be having a fun play option this year. You can register as a single and will not need to worry about the competition.

Participants will be responsible for securing their own accommodations. There is not a block of rooms reserved but being a resort town there are many options to choose from. 

This is an exclusive 40-team event and we expect the field to fill up rapidly, so don't delay. Get your partner organized and get signed up. Cost - $320 per player, which covers two days of golf with cart, practice facility, gratuities, bag handling and prize fund.

Registration deadline December 1st.
