We have discussed and discussed a Members tournament in the past, and it went nowhere. I think it's because no time line or location was really discussed. I'd like to throw out the for the members, an event in the March time frame, at a course in the Dallas Area. The courses that might be available are like TPC Craig Ranch, Las Colinas etc. THey are far from Uncle Ed's farm. The costs depending on the venue for a 3 member grouping with carts from about $60 - $110 a head. I'd like to propose that we have a little buffer in for Charities and maybe a 50/50 raffle and a skins pot by handicap (flight) 0 -3.9 4-7.9 8-11.9 12 - 15.9 16 - 19.0 and 20+ That could even go higher if needed. I'll watch the interest here, if it looks like we might get about 40+ then I would be happy to start making some calls and getting a little more traction.
I would also suggest that you make it more than one day.
Personally, If I am going to to travel to Dallas, I am spending a few days there to enjoy the course(S) and the BBQ and quite possibly the adult beverages well ok the adult beverages.
Depending on the actual day/s I will be there. I'm playing in the North TX Fourball in late Feb and have a few weekend plans over the Mar/Apr/May timeframe...
I agree. If the participation is strong enough I was thinking either a 2 day event or 2 events in close proximity courses. So that a single hotel is easy.
I like the idea but it's just too far for me. The trip would end up being quite costly. Hopefully you'll get some traction though.
Callaway tournament would be awesome but no interest in traveling to Texas. Willing to travel to a destination location like Cali, New York, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head or Florida, someplace that if a spouse or family wants to tag along there’s stuff for them as well.
I live in Dallas and happy to join the group. Depending on the dates, I may be able to host a day at my club in the N. Ft Worth area. Keep me posted.
