You don't have to have a low handicap to play in this 2-day event. Last year we had five flights, and 22 players with handicap indexes ranging from 6 to 32 won prizes. This year it could be you!

Vessel Sponsor - Once again, Vessel will provide our top prizes for this event. Low Gross over the field and Low Net over the field winners will receive a Vessel stand golf bag, and the top finishers in each flight will take home an extremely nice magnetic Vessel towel.

The 19th Hole Extended on Sunday - Susan Crawford is opening up her home, once again, to host our "Extended 19th Hole" after the round. She is literally only five minutes away.  
There will be food, beverages, a pool, and a hot tub. We have the Taquiza Caleb Authentic Mexican Food Cart that will be set up in Susan's backyard.
