Ram's Hill Individual Eclectic Major Tournament!
Stroke of Luck is holding a "MAJOR!" We will do a 2 day INDIVIDUAL Eclectic at Ram's Hill in Borrego Springs on November 17th and 18th. Prizes for first and second GROSS and NET in 2 flights will be awarded. The cost for the 2 days of golf is $221 which will be prepaid by each player thru Intuit. Each day each golfer will have a tee time between 8:30 and 9:30 am (the most prime tee times before the winds pick up). You must have played in 4 events in 2018 with Stroke of Luck to be eligible for this MAJOR tournament. Players will be paired by course handicap on Saturday. On Sunday pairings will be based on which players are leading the tournament with the lowest GROSS score in their flight. Group rate accommodations have been secured. The RSVP for lodging will be a separate event posting. Definition of an Eclectic: Each golfer plays 2 rounds at Ram's Hill. At the conclusion of the two rounds, each golfer compares his/her scores on each hole. The lowest score made on each hole is recorded for the eclectic score, producing one 18-hole score. For example, in the first round, the golfer scores a 6 on hole No. 1; in Round 2, he scores a 5 on hole No. 1. The lowest of those two scores on the first hole is a 5, so 5 is the golfer's eclectic score. It continues like this. The golfer compares his scores on each hole in every round of the eclectic, selects the lowest per-hole score, and that is his eclectic scorecard. The RSVP will close for this event will close earlier than usual due to the prepayment required by the course. I will also provide information on Lodging. Stroke of Luck is working on a discounted rate at the Borrego Springs Inn for the group. Bookings will be done directly by the players entering the tournament. RSVP closes on November 10th.

What we're about

Stroke of Luck Golf Group is an INTERMEDIATE, FUN GOLF group with some FUN AND FRIENDLY COMPETITIONS!

We are an official SCGA member club. Members may establish their SCGA indexes thru our group (for an additional fee) or may get them thru other SCGA qualified clubs. We do not require members to have an SCGA handicap but we encourage it to allow our members the most chances to win "net" competitions for trophies and prizes. Most of our members DO have SCGA indexes.

Our competitions include a monthly qualifier for our club championship that is held each fall. We also host three - 2 day competitions (partner eclectic, individual eclectic and team cup event) which are hosted at Encinitas Ranch, Morgan Run and Ram's Hill. Each of our regular events that are not monthly qualifiers will also have some fun game/competition for prizes that will be based on gross and net scores.

We host 2 - 3 events per month at golf courses around the San Diego, Orange County, Temecula and Palm Springs areas.

We do an annual trip to La Quinta Resort which includes a day of 2 person match play and 2 days of fun golf with some type of competition.

We have been to Southern Ireland, Scotland (including St. Andrews) and Northern Ireland with many more trips to come!

The $50 annual membership fee, pays for the TROPHIES, MONEY AWARDS AND PRIZES at our events. You will make this fee back in your first round or two of golf with the group as we get discounts of $35 to $150 on the rounds we play.

The annual membership fee must be paid at least 7 days prior to your first event or within 30 days of joining. If not paid by this time, we will assume you have changed your mind and may gently remove you from the group. You are welcome back at any time.

Once your membership is approved we will send you an Intuit Invoice to pay the membership dues. We only accept Intuit payments and cannot accept personal checks, credit cards or Paypal.

We have a strict group policy for late cancellations and no-shows for our events. You may be charged if you cancel after the RSVP deadline or do not show up for an event. This enables us to bring the exact number of players we contract for to the course and keeps our rates for golf much lower than other groups.

Please read the entire GROUP POLICY on the Discussion Board BEFORE you RSVP for any events.

As an intermediate level golf group, we expect all players will have a good pace of play, keep up with the group in front of them, adhere to golf etiquette and pick-up at double par. Trash talking however is also encouraged. :-)

We have been hosting over golf events for nearly years and are approaching 400 EVENTS!!!

We have been organizing golf events of 4 to 84 players at the nicer courses in the San Diego Area, Temecula, Palm Springs, Myrtle Beach, Ireland and even Scotland. Myself and the 7 other organizers have a reputation for hosting excellent golf events at a HUGE variety of courses that always include a pretty fun 19th hole and prizes and raffles!!!

We focus on nicer courses in the San Diego and surrounding area at substantially DISCOUNTED rates. We have such a good reputation with courses that the COURSES OFTEN CONTACT US TO BOOK AND IF THE PRICE/PACKAGE ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH WE DON'T GO!!! The courses we will play will include but not be limited to: The Crossings, Twin Oaks, The Legends , Riverwalk, Maderas, The Grand Del Mar, Coronado, Barona, La Quinta (Palm Springs), La Costa, Encinitas Ranch, Steele Canyon, Aviara, Marine Memorial, Talega, El Camino Country Club, Shadowridge, Lomas Sante Fe Country Club, Golf Club of California, Arrowood and Pechanga.
