This year the Upson-Lee Touchdown Club will be having its annual kick-off classic to benefit the football program. The tournament will run like it has in the past. The format will be a two person shamble. A shamble means that both players hit their drive. The team chooses the best drive and then each player plays their own ball from that point. The team takes the lowest score on the hole after that. All golfers will be flighted by handicap.
A golfer and his/her partner cannot have a difference of more than seven with their handicap (Ex. Golfer A has a handicap of 6, Golfer B can only be as high as 13). If you have a partner that has a handicap that is more than seven above, he/she will have to play at a handicap that is only seven above (Ex. Golfer A has a 6 handicap and Golfer B has a 18 handicap. The team’s flight will be based on Golfer B having a 13 for a handicap).
The number of flights will be determined by the number of teams in the tournament. Championship A and B flights will tee off from the back tees. Seniors 60 and older will tee off from the front tees and all others will tee off from the middle tees. Tournament prizes will also be based on the number of teams in the tournament.
The tournament will be a two day event held on July 26-27. Raintree Golf Course in Thomaston will be hosting the tournament and tee times will begin at 8 a.m. on both days. Everyone will start from number 1(Not a shotgun start).
There will be a dinner for the golfers at Bickley’s Lake on July 25 at 6 p.m. Anyone other than the golfer will be charged $11 per person to eat. The cost for a team is $250. If you would like to sponsor a hole the cost is $100. Anyone interested in playing (players send in both names and handicaps) or sponsoring a hole, please make checks payable to:
