Welcome to what has become our traditional last 18 hole event of the year at Simsbury Farms Golf Course in Simsbury, CT. Tel:[masked]-6246. The first tee time will be 12 Noon. The event will be a regular stroke play, (Play your own ball), event with flags as follows:
Each player is given a little flag to stick in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. The object of this format is that the golfer who stakes his or her flag the farthest around the course is the winner. Example: Your allotment, (target score), is 75 strokes. You play the course until you hit your 75th shot, which, let's say, comes on the 16th fairway. That's where you plant your flag. If no other player's flag is planted beyond yours, say, on the 16th green or 17th tee box, you are the winner. If 2 or more players are tied, for example if 2 or more players make it to the 17th green or 18th fairway for example, closest to the hole wins.
Any players who lose their flags while playing are out of the competition.
Any players that have remaining holes to play after they have reached their target scores and planted their flags, may if they choose, keep playing and finish recording their complete 18 hole score on the golf course scorecards.
In addition, there will be contest holes for players to compete in for individual prizes. There will be a “Closest to the Line” hole contest for everyone, and a “Closest to the Pin” hole for both men and women.
There will be prizes awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place golfers who advanced their flags the farthest. In addition, there will be prizes awarded to each of the individual winners of the “Closest to the Line and Closest to the Pin” contests.
The cost for this event is $48.00, cart included.
After golf, for those who are interested, Simsbury Farms has a restaurant where you can go for food and drink.
