2nd Member guest tourney

This time I am back in Mt. Pleasant, SC over at Dunes West Country Club. Playing with a long time friend Tom Parker who just became a golf member at Dunes West.

Tourney is huge, 48 teams tons of prizes given away and raffles for more.

We are a combined 34 handicap and it puts us in the 7th flight. We again do a team matchplay format with a twist. It is a combined scores for each player on each hole. We end up 3rd in our flight.

Shootout takes for ever as it starts with 16 teams with each guy playing his own ball.

Great food, tons of drinks... great time!

First Member Guest tourney of the year.

This one is hosted at Rivertowne Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, SC. My brother in law Mike has invited me back this year. Our combined handicap for the tourney is 17. He has played 1 round this year so it should be fun.

We are flighted in the first flight. It has 6 team flights and you play match play versus the other flights. First day we go 7 out of 10 and in the other two we go 7.5 out of ten and we hold a 2.5 point lead.

Sunday we play the team that is in second place first. We win the match 6 to 4 and only need 2 points to win our flight in the last match. We had a lot of fun as we are just waiting for the shootout to begin.

Shootout! We have to wait for 10 tee shots before we get to go. Stood up on my drive and lost it way right. Mike pulls his left in the water we are done.

Had a great time, ate a ton of food. Paramutal betting doesn't pay off for crap as there was plenty of bets on us.

Now time to get ready for next weekends tourney.
