Pro-Duffers Golf Outing


Mini Spring Fling


Ridges Of Village Creek


Wynne, AR April 24, 2021


Memphis vs Little Rock
Group Pairing
10:00 am Start time



Saturday April 24th at the Ridges of Village Creek in Wynne, Arkansas.  I am so glad we can get together to fraternize and golf after a year of "shutdown".  I sincerely hope this will be a fun outing for all and maybe, as we discussed before, make it an annual event.  Who knows, maybe we can even get the guys from Greenville to join in next year.    

Our Tournament and Handicap Chairman Wendell Berry will complete the listing of USGA handicaps for our members based on appropriate tee boxes and flights as well. Rules will be based on the National Spring Fling.  Therefore, it is a "handicapped event" and overall winners based on net scores. 

The Plan:
  • CITY WINNER WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE TOTAL NET SCORE (BOTH PLAYERS) FROM EACH TEAM/NOTE THAT WE HAVE 9 COMPETING TEAMS
  • PARTICIPATION FEE IS $15 PER PLAYER ($10 FOR FLIGHT PAYOUT AND $5 SKIN PAYOUT PER FLIGHT)
  • THERE WILL BE THREE (3) FLIGHTS, "A", "B","C" BASED ON HANDICAPS/PAYOUTS WILL BE 1ST, 2ND AND 3RD AT RATE OF 50%/30%/20% OF PURSE PER FLIGHT
  • SKIN PAYOUT PER FLIGHT BASED ON GROSS SCORES ONLY (NO NET SKINS)
Please let me know if this works for you! We'll share final pairing and numbers once we have them complete. 

Memphis Members, please make sure I have you listed properly and nothing has changed.  Participants based on those names I received. If your status has changed, please let me know right away.

Congratulations

Abdullah Hasan for his performance in this past weekend's Club Championship at Memphis National.  After battling through some health issues for weeks, the man "is back". Going up against some tough competition, this guy posted the lowest rounds to par over two days of the entire tournament, even better than the regular championship from last weekend.

Gentleman:

I hope each of you are doing well and staying safe from both pandemics taking place across the country right now.  I did however want to take a moment to share with you a local campaign we did here in Memphis, following the lead of our Brothers in D.C., to support our local Food Bank. Though locally we support our Food Bank annually, this effort was far and beyond our regular fall campaign.  With an initial goal of providing 5,000 - 6,000 meals, our guys stepped it up and we provided funds for over 10,000 meals. The presentation and check took place earlier this week with local TV coverage. 

Thanks D.C. for the challenge, there is much good we can do in all of our communities. 

Take care guys.

Larry D. Colbert
