The format for the tournament does, as in the
past, involve both individual and team play. The Turnbull Cup is awarded to
the player with the low gross score. The player with the low net score will
be inscribed on the Cup after the awardee. No prizes are associated with
the Cup competition, but prizes are awarded for team competition. Players
are invited to join into foursomes (those who do not form their own foursome
will be joined with others by the tournament organizers Bob Formaini and
Jack Sommer) and competition is based on handicap play. Each team member
plays their own ball (this is not a "captain's choice") and records all
strokes. The aggregate handicap of the foursome is subtracted from their
aggregate gross score. The highest handicap permitted is 27, so if yours is
higher just submit 27. If you don't have an official handicap make your
best estimate from the last 10 games you have played. Team prizes and
prizes for longest drive and closest to the pin will also be awarded.
The cost of the tournament this year will be $95 and this will include
greens fees, carts, lunch and prizes. If you are not renting a vehicle and
need a ride to the course please indicate when you sign up.
