Golf / Fun Run
The golf Tournament is on Thursday Morning, August 4, 2011. The cost is $110 and includes breakfast snack, green fees, cart, transportation, and prizes. You may sign up for the golf outing when you register online.
The Pro-Shop has rental golf clubs, and uses Callaways. They routinely upgrade to the latest style of Callaway clubs. As of 5/2010 they were renting new Callaway R-22 irons.
It could be less of a transportation hassle if a golfer wanted to rent clubs at the course for a round of golf. The one day rental fee is $69 plus tax.
Starr Pass has a beautiful driving range with new Callaway range balls. There is no extra cost to use the range prior to a round. The balls are even stacked in neat little white pyramids by each hitting area. It's kind of shame to hit them, they're so pretty.
We anticipate a 7:30 AM shotgun start. Be early. We really want the last shuttle to leave the resort at 7:00 AM with any stragglers.
There will be a shuttle running from the front door of the resort to the Pro-Shop that morning, but it only holds 12 people per trip. It takes about 10 minutes per round trip because the course is about a mile from the hotel lobby.
We have arranged for a small Continental Breakfast at the Course. They will serve Danishes, coffee, or juice available upon arrival for a quick meal. We know it may be difficult to eat prior and still make it on time for some players.
There will be a cash beverage cart for water, soda, sandwiches, and candy bars. You will need to purchase anything you want off the cart.
They change the water twice a day in the coolers near the tee boxes for clean sanitary water.
The course is very difficult and you can expect to lose about 1 ball on each hole, and so we are attempting to secure a dozen free/complementary golf balls for each player signed up for the tournament. We want to minimize slow play due to looking for balls in the desert scrub.
We will play scramble format, and have fun!
Prizes will be for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place groups.
The 5k fun run will be on a course laid out around the resort on Friday, August 5th. The cost is $20 and includes a moisture wicking cap with the Conference Logo. You may sign up for the fun run when you register online.
