Luck O’ The Irish Results

Luck of the IrishThe Luck O’ The Irish tournament did prove to be lucky as 50 golfers came to Hedingham on March 19th and were able to avoid forecasted rain until their final holes. Now in its third year of the event that uses a unique format the field continues to grow despite what the weather brings.

The format used for this tournament is a green ball tournament. All golfers must start with playing a green ball and continue to use it until the ball is lost, his out of bounds, hit into a hazard or a bunker.  For every hole that players complete using their green ball they get a shot reduced from their score.   While some golfers managed to play all 18 holes using their green ball there is no need to fear; there are plenty of green balls scattered through the course that can be found for months to come.

If the green ball wrinkle wasn’t enough there were also no flagsticks on the course. Everyone aimed for the center of the green and hoped the luck of the Irish were on their side when they got up to the green. To keep competitive fairness players were not allowed to go past their ball at any point until the ball was on the green and range finders were not allowed.

Fun was had by all with a great turnout for our first completed tournament of the season. Remember to sign up for the upcoming Match Play event by calling Riverwood at (919)-550-1919 as well as the Masters Challenge at Eagle Ridge (919)661-6300 which will be a two man chapman system format that combines the team score with a random player drawn from the Masters.
