Attention all DUCW members who have ever played golf. On Saturday August 24, we are having a different golf day than usual. Our small, friendly tournament will be based on “Texas Scramble” rules, where every group is a team, and everyone in the group plays every shot, but from the position where the best ball of the group has landed. So if you don’t make your best shot, just pick up your ball and walk over and shoot from where the best shot of the group landed. No stress, all fun, and you are part of a team. To make the game as even as possible, we will allocate the teams based on everyone’s skill level, with the aim of having an even amount of different skill levels on each team. with no team being “stacked”. This Texas scramble will be for 9 holes, starting at 1pm at Shooters just off Inkster Boulevard, 1/2km west of Route 90, official address is 2695 Park Royale Way. Some folks like to play 18 holes, so there will be a stroke play mini tournament available prior to the Texas Scramble, starting at 11am. Please call early, to let me know your intentions. – Peter Munn 204 237-1805. Continue reading →
