With a name like “Throwback Threes” you might think the Woodmont Par Three Tournament this year was a compilation of replica holes of Ross, Raynor, Tillinghast, and MacKenzie of the “Golden Age of Golf Course Architecture”. But with holes named after things like Pet Rocks, Flip Hairdoos, Mood Rings, and Bell Bottoms it is more likely to harken back memories of those “Halcyon Days” of your youth.
The Woodmont Par Three has become one of the most popular events of the year as it attracts over 100 participants-men, women, and qualified juniors- to compete in two divisions based on total team handicaps. It will be played on Sunday April 28th with assigned Tee Times between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
This year the design firm of D & F Associates have fashioned 18 unique Par 3 holes from the Zoysia fields of the South Golf Course. With holes ranging 70 to 190 yards and two sets of tees on each hole, you will find approach angles into the greens from places you could not imagine. You have never seen your course look or play like this….these holes will challenge your creativity and the full array of arrows in your quiver.
Grab your buddies, your spouses, or your kids and assemble your own 4-Person Team to play in this Step-Aside Scramble format. The individual challenge is made slightly easier by the fact that your result does not have to count on each shot. To make the kompetition fun for everyone, we split the field into two flights based on the team scramble handicap assigned to each team. There will be Gross and Net Prizes in each flight once again this year.
As you can see below, it took excellent team play to take home the Monopoly Sweeps in 2018. For the Community Chest Flight the veteran crew of Gene Sachs, Matt Bergman, Andy Friedlander, and Steve Block took the gross prize with 43. The net winner in this division with 42.9 was the team of Joe Scheffres, Mike Bobys, Neal Bobys, and Paul Cohen. In the Chance Flight Rick Brecher, Nathan Greenbaum, Howard Isaacson, and Ron Edlavitch teamed up for 47 to win the gross and the team of Mike Fisher, Bernie Greenbaum, Ronnie Greenbaum, and Peter Jessel finished the “Greenbaum Sweep” and carded 44 to win the net.
Besides the sweeps prizes for all winners, there are serious Keepers Kup Points going to our guys in the top five finishing groups with Keepers.
