Lakewood Country Club is hosting a two-man golf tournament with a Calcutta pay-out in cash. The event will be held at Lakewood CC on Saturday, Oct. 24, and will begin at 9 a.m. The event is open to anyone who would like to participate.
The format will be a modified scramble, meaning that each team would take the best tee ball between the two players on each hole, then would go to that spot and play their own ball until it is holed. After that, it becomes best ball, meaning the lowest score between the two would be the team’s score on the hole.
Teams will be pre-flighted bases on the lowest handicap of the two players. For example, if a team was made up of a 4 and 8 handicap, the team would be handicapped by the player who has the 4 handicap.
As far as the Calcutta goes, the $100 entry fee from each player will go into it. The event will pay out to the first, second, and third place teams in each flight, and the number of flights will be determined by the amount of participation. Ties will split money, if they finish in the top three. There will be a 100 percent payout.
All players who are 60 years old and older will be able to play the gold tees, while all players under the age of 60 will play the white tees.
“This gives a lot of people in the area a chance to get out and compete,” said Lakewood’s head golf pro, Curt Pritchard. “The 100 percent payout should really entice golfers to come out and play, and we are hoping for a big turnout and good participation. It should be a fun event, and we hope a lot of people will come and play. The course is looking really good.”
This is a one day event, that is open to anyone that would like to play. For more information on the event, contact the Lakewood CC pro shop at 910-525-4424.
