I am planning on running an event as a fundraiser for my next womens tournament. I have decided that instead of begging you guys for money next year for tee signs I am going to milk you slowly throughout the year and provide some good wholesome tournament fun in return.
Each event will be a completely different and unique format and they will be announced as I secure the parks for their use.
These will be very low frills but also low cost events, generally half the money will go to payout, the other half (minus park fees) to my tournament.
The first event that I definitely will be running will be a 9 hole elimination/skins tournament at White Oak.
I will only be using 9 holes for this so the other half of the course would be available for someone to run another event or even just do some field event side action...whatever, I don't care as long as you help pay for the pavillion.
My event is obviously more geared towards ADV/PRO players so a simultaneous AM event would probably have a good draw.
Here is details for my event which will hopefully drum up some excitement.
$10 entry and 1 round of qualifying
$5 for each additional round of qualifying
7:30-11:30 qualifying is open
You can play as many rounds as you want to qualify, we will cut off further rounds based on how long 9 holes takes to play that way nobody is out there when the quarterfinals start.
12:30 quarterfinals (top 36) random cards are drawn from the top 36.
2ish (top 9) top of each card heads to final 9, final 9 are paid flat rate.
330ish (skins) top 4 play a final 9 holes for skins.
Here is an example payout:
36 people buy in for 1 round
10 people pay for 2
10 people pay for 3
$255 goes into pot
Final 9 get $12 back
Skins are $18 for 1 and 9 and $16 for remaining holes.
So if you sweep skins you could walk away with $160 for (in this example) as low as $10 and as much as $20 invested.
If the pot is pushed past hole 9 play will continue until someone wins a hole and the entire pot.
If no-one wants to use the other half of the park maybe I will set up an Am version of the same thing with greasy-bucks as prizes or something...or someone else can step up and run that...your opportunity to get half a park at half the price and if we do it right people can probably play in both.
