RMGC Invitational Registration Update

The Invitational sign up will be on line by April 24. Please read this entire email which will answer many questions as well as make your registration go more smoothly.

The Invitational field will be limited to 36 teams with a wait list if needed. There will be a minimum of 3 flights- Gross best ball team score flight- a net best ball of the team score flight(s)- a callaway team score flight(s).

The team entry fee is $300 ($150 pp). The RMGC member has the option to pay the full entry fee, OR have the guest pay his share. The choice can be made during the initial registration process. The registration sign up page will have many new options this year. Team members can play from individually pre selected tees. Each players handicap will be adjusted accordingly for the net flight competition and the callaway flight. Teams that want to compete for the GROSS score championship will be required to play from the WHITE tees for both players. The low gross team will be presented with the championship trophy at the evening awards ceremony.

There will be a separate link for the guest’s information. The member will need to get the information from his guest and fill out the form. Be sure to include his GHIN number. If your guest DOES NOT have a GHIN, leave the GHIN number block EMPTY and just click the no GHIN number tab. The team will be placed in a callaway flight. The guest can play from his pre selected tees.

Team members can pick up their tee prizes and tournament information packet at the Creekside pro shop starting at 10:30. Each team member will receive a dozen logo Callaway Chrome Soft balls. On the registration form, each player can also choose either a Rossmoor golf hat or a Rossmoor golf towel. A sample of each can be seen at the pro shop. Each team member, as part of the entry fee will receive an all player raffle ticket. Winning ticket holders can pick up their prize at the event center after play.

Range balls will be provided courtesy of Chuck Benson of Berkshire Hathaway Reality. Lunch will be provided starting at 11 am with grill master Stan cooking his awesome hamburgers with all the fixings. If a cart is required for a team, be sure to note it on the registration form and pay for it at the pro shop prior to the start of the tournament. There will be a shot gun start at 12:30. Dinner will be at the event center where the RMGC will provide an open bar for everyone. Dinner will be a cut of prime rib with vegetables and dessert. Advise Chuck Moran by email if a player requests an alternative dinner or lunch menu item.

This year the Invitational will host many sponsors who will be on selected tees. Be sure to stop by and say hello to each sponsor’s personnel. In addition to the tee sponsors, our Platinum sponsor, Comcast/Xfinity will again offer a premium raffle of golf equipment, clothing and accessories, with the grand prize being a $500 driver. A new gold plus sponsor, Rossmoor Retail Partners is also providing a $250 3 wood as part of the raffle. Each team member can buy the raffle tickets at the first tee or at registration or at the dinner. Raffle tickets will be 1 for $10, 3 for $20 or 7 for $40. What makes the raffle unique is you may select to put as many of your tickets in selected bins to increase your odds of winning the driver, 3 wood, or other prizes.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and having a great time at this year’s Invitational. Contact Chuck Moran, tournament chairman at chuck.r.moran@gmail.com or text or call, 843-870-4717 if there are additional questions.
