The annual grudge match of the Old Farts vs the Young Farts will be contested on Saturday May 31st. Still smarting from last year’s 132.5 to 101.5 shellacking, The Keepers have added legally borderline supplements to their diets and are keen for revenge.
This is a team event with 16 to 24 guys from each squad configured in (3) different formats of 18 hole matches. All the matches are worth 18 points (one point a hole) so they are contested to the final hole and all kontestants will play from the same tees. The matches will include 2-Man Best Ball (80% handicaps), 2-Man Scrambles (Blended handicaps), and Singles (90% handicap) with the captains from each side determining who will play which format.
Billy B, winner of last year’s Keepers Match Play, will kaptain The Keepers squad and make all the painful decisions. You can sign up to make yourself eligible to play in the event by hitting the Kosher K. Just because you sign up does not guarantee you are in the line-up. Billy will make final determination of the roster and the matches based on the Burak-Metrics system.
This is a great outing so sign up to be a part as we seek to regain the Whoopee Cushion we deserve!
The next Keepers event is a Tuesday Two-Ball (2-man Alternate Shot) on May 20th with a shotgun start at 4:45. You can pick your own partner or leave it to our Shitach Kommittee to arrange it for you. This is true alternate shot-you and your pard will alternate who drives on the odd and even holes. A team handicap which is the average of 80% of your two individual handicaps on the course to be determined. The strokes you get then are assigned to the scorecard holes by handicap hole order.
Tee off as one and we will get in as many of the 18 holes as we can before dusk. This is a Net All-Star Nine competition so you will choose your team’s best net (2) par fives, (2) par threes, and (5) par fours of the holes you played.
Keepers Kup Points for the low five teams and Keepers Kup Sweeps for the low three teams. This is a chance to pad your Kup Standings and Sweeps account. So pick a pard and sign up.
If you want to designate a partner please email email@example.com after you both sign up for the event.

The first of The Keepers Tuesday evening 9-Hole Pic-Up Games will be May 6th with tee times between 4:00 and 5:30 pm. The format is an old favorite, the Single Elimination Kompetition. This is a second cousin to our 4-Club event, in that it tests your ability to manage the course with less than the full komplement of tools.
Each Keeper starts the first hole with 10 clubs and eliminates the club of his choice on the next tee. It is part of the Keepers Honor Kode to verbally announce his choice so all are aware. If you do the math he will be playing the second hole with 9 clubs, the fifth hole with 6 clubs, and he will be standing on the ninth tee trying to get into the house with just 2 clubs left in play. The putter is one of the clubs so each kompetitior must choose wisely the clubs to designate out of play on each tee.
Players get 90% handicap to lop off the gross score at the end of the nine holes. This is a fun format and it definitely fits the players who know how to create shots, especially down the last four holes.

The third playing of the almost annual Woodmont Par Three Tournament will be held on Sunday April 27th. This engaging competition is open to men and women of all handicap abilities.
Given the 4-Person Scramble format the sheer challenge is mollified slightly by the fact that your result does not have to count on each shot. A scramble handicap increment will be in play for each group so well under par is the expected winning score of the day.
As was the case last year, this is a challenging array of 18 Par 3 holes-the creative work of D & D Design Associates. The holes range from 86 to 160 yards with most under 120 yards, so everyone can have a chance to contribute to their team’s success
So gather round people and sign up to play in this year’s Par Three Extravaganza you won’t be disappointed. Sign up by logging into the Woodmont Club website after clicking the Woodmont W above. Once you have a team you make your own tee time on the North Course between 8 and noon.
Keepers points are available to the top five finishers with Keepers on their squad.
