Bemidji Town & Country Club Online Newsletter - 07/25/05

Our final Sunday Couples Event will be held Sunday, August 7th. We will have a shotgun start at 1:30 PM with a steak fry dinner prepared by Gretchen and her staff following the event. The entry fee will be $20.00 per team ($5.00 per person). In order for Gretchen to plan ahead we ask that you make reservations for the dinner.

The format for this event will be four-member teams (two male and two female) with 90% handicap. We will count three best balls on the par threes, two best balls on the par fours, and one best ball on the par fives. Male golfers over 65 with handicaps twenty and above will be able to play from the gold tees.

In order to keep the course open as much as possible to regular member play we will be limiting the sign up to ten teams on a first-come basis. With this thought in mind we ask that you please do not sign up unless you definitely plan on playing. You may make up your own four person team or sign up as a couple and we will match you with another couple. Sign up is available in the proshop.
