Back for the fifth year is the popular Fall Classic which is a two-day golf competition and "staycation" for a bargain rate of $190. For $190, you will receive a round of golf and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, a goody bag and a delicious dinner Saturday night which includes a cocktail.
For those of you who want to practice and get to know the course on Friday, we have a special deal which is detailed below.* If you cannot make both days, you can play for one day for $95. For those attending for only one day, you will receive a goody bag and can participate in daily contests (putting, accurate drive & closest to the pin), but you will not be able to participate in the competition because we need two-day total score. This event is open only to The Fairway Network members.
New this year is a shot gun start!! Saturday tee times start at noon and Sunday tee times start at
9:00 a.m. The tournament and playoff rules will be distributed at check in. The event format is as follows: Players will be divided into flights depending on their handicap and it will be individual stroke play. The club’s golf professional will assign players to their respective flight. After Sunday’s round, cash prizes will be awarded for each flight and contests during a brief awards ceremony.
