As the summer days wind down, we are beginning to look forward to our annual “Walt Schumacher Shocker Final-Final” golf tournament! Steve Schumacher, our golf superintendent, began hosting this tournament a few years ago in honor of his father, Walt. Among many other achievements, Walt is the proud patent holder of the “shocker” (patent number 2934343), an important element of football blocking machines.
The golf tournament will be held on October 10th of this year with a 12:00 p.m. shotgun start. The cost per golfer is $39 and includes golfing, a golf cart, prizes and a great meal from the Izatys Restaurant. To register, stop by the resort or call the Pro Shop at (320) 532-5444.
Golf Tournament Rules
This 4-person scramble has some unique rules to add an extra element of fun. The team of four will be ranked from best to worst (A-D) based on their handicap. Players with a handicap of 0-9 will tee off from the blue tees. Players with a handicap of 10-19 will tee off from the white tees. Players with a handicap of 20+ will tee off from the red tees.
Eight of the 18 holes will be assigned to a specific golfer – depending upon their rank. For example, hole 4 indicates it is assigned to “D only”. Whoever the “D” golfer is on your team is the only one that will be able to tee-off. If they hit it out of bounds they will be required to re-tee until the drive is deemed “in play”. Then standard scramble rules will apply. On the holes that are marked “all”, everyone will be able to tee-off and they will continue to play from the best drive.
