Additional Information and Descriptions about the Events
What are the Weekend Events all about?
The events on the weekends are for members who chose to participate in exploring Hampton Roads offerings of golf courses in a group outing with other members. The Chapter arranges a certain number of tee times and sets up the ability to register for participation. Once the tickets are sold out, there is a wait list. These events are not tournament events but will likely have a Game of the Day with prizes awarded and an occasional ABCD format. Currently there are only 2 events that will be set up as a Shotgun start. They will be advertised as such when the event opens for registration. All other Weekend Events will be assigned tee times. For those who feel comfortable to participate, some players will gather to socialize at the 19th Hole. There we can swap stories and catch up with each other, and it is a great time to meet new friends as well.
A New feature for this year’s outings gives our members the option for individual stroke play or scramble at the time of registration. See the above links for information on that new process for registration.
The registration process will set up the tee time pairings. The point of this process is to encourage mixing of the players so people can meet one another. There will be a note section during the registration process for comments to the event organizer if you want to play the scramble format with a particular person. Requests can be made but not guaranteed. Games of the Day will be announced at the time of the event like fewest putts, most fairways hit, throw away scores, or add up scores on all Par 3s, etc. and prizes given. Your Course Captain for the day will have that information.
As you recall in years past sign up can happen fast, so do not delay in registering when the ticket sales open.
