Because the club's normal meeting date (3rd Friday of the month) falls on Good Friday, April's event has been moved to Tuesday, April 16th. There will be a putting contest in the afternoon, with the awards dinner and entertainment at the usual time.
The Putting Contest will be a 9-hole scramble with 4-person teams. Couples will be randomly paired, with singles completing foursomes. Bring your own putter and ball.

Arnold Palmer Himalayas Putting Green
Himalayas is the larger putting green next to the golf cart path, just past the Arnold Palmer restaurant. We can handle up to 4 groups of 36 players over that time period. You will be emailed your team's approximate starting time prior to the event. Please arriveat least 15 minutes before your team's start time. For each round of players, it will be a shotgun start with all 9 teams starting at the same time. At each hole, each player on the team putts. The team picks the best ball, then each player putts from that spot, and so on until a ball is sunk. The team moves to the next hole and repeats the best-ball putting until the team finishes all 9 holes. You'll total your team's strokes and turn in your scorecard in before leaving and the next round of players begins to putt.
Prizes will be for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd lowest scores; the highest score; and the longest hole-in-one.
After turning in your scorecard, go home, shower, rest, then prepare for the Awards Dinner that evening at Laurel Manor, with singer Cali McCord as our entertainment.
Food is Table-share, and you can plan your table... up to 8 people.If you want to sit together, one person in your group should collect the Sign Up Forms & Checks and put them all into one envelope.
