Over the years, Mother Nature has been pretty kind to the annual Barefoot Member-Member Tournament.
The rainy, raw day of November 23 will go down in the annals as one of the least attractive days for golf that we can remember. Contestants battled wet and chilly conditions throughout the entire round on the Love Course. The forty-five teams of two players teams provided a mix of all male, all female and mixed couples. Seven different flights comprised the field, which were determined by total team handicap. Tournament officials used a “Pinehurst” format where both players were required to alternate shots throughout the day. There was some stout competition with a few cases of ties going all the way to the fifth rated handicap hole to determine flight champions. First and second place winners within each flight were given gift cards to the Pro Shop during a meal/awards event following play.
Each flight winner then moved on to our main putting green, where took part in a three hole “Putt-Off” to determine the overall winners. The team of Carlos Sanz and Alan Simeon navigated the three challenging holes to prevail as overall champions of the 2013 Member-Member Tournament. We thank all of the members who withstood the elements and participated in our annual event. We congratulate all winners and look forward to continued participation in this event.
