A thread for the Texas folks

Let’s say you had 2 tee times for Saturday morning: 1 at riverside and 1 at lions. Which one would you take an out of town friend to?

Unrelated, I have an extra tee times somewhere in town if someone wants one before 9am!

Lions for sure

Well, I have an 850 teatime for Saturday morning the 10th if anybody wants it at Riverside!

I think I’ve got someone who isn’t on the Refuge who is interested in the DFW Match play. #GrowTheGame

Let me know I’m down to play Sunday

Alright, now that we’ve got all 16 participants, it’s time to break into 4 regions and get this thing started.

  • The FW/Arlington region is pretty easy since there’s 4 total there
  • The rest of us are all pretty close to each other with the exception of Flower Mound, so @bigslice I’ll group you with some of the more north-ish Dallas folks

I’ve done a first pass at it and have it color-coded in the google doc if anyone wants to take a look and see that it makes sense.

My question for everyone involved - should the 1st round matchups within these regions be between the people that live closest to each other, that reflect a similar handicap, or just randomized.

Full on randomized is my vote

Random makes the most sense. It’s all handicapped so it doesn’t really matter. Also I may have missed it but what course are we playing/is it up to the two people to decide where they want to play?

The course, time, and tees of your matchup are completely determined between you and your opponent for each round.

Randomized works for me!

What’s the time frame to get the first round in?

Here’s the bracket for the inaugural Refuge - DFW Match Play Tournament

Let’s set a rule of getting each round completed within 3 weeks. That would put the tournament as a whole at 12 weeks total, which would have the final be around New Years Day. Ideally, we’ll get it done quicker than that but understand we have some holidays we’ll be up against and potentially some suspect weather.

One thing I really liked that the Phoenix group did was they worked within each of their regions so setup the first round as a foursome, if schedules allowed. Nice way to meet more than just one person on here (in the case of losing out first round like I’ll probably do) and also scout your potential next opponent. Not mandatory - just an idea that might help with the speed of the tournament.

Thanks for setting this up, looks great. Looks like The Lake Highlands Pillow Fight is first on deck!

The real question is who’s going to be the first one to win a hole with the double on the card?

No doubt I’m making a double on the first hole. Thank god it’s match play

Tell me where you want to play and I could make a pretty good guess which hole will be won with a double by one of us.
