I want to get a thread started about our awesome event in Denver this summer, which will be in conjunction with BMW. Let me start with confirmed facts as of today:
Where: Lakewood CC (Denver, CO), a 1916 Donald Ross design and 2017 Gil Hanse restoration
When: Monday, June 28th, 2021
Format: Two-person, 36-hole competition (Best Ball in the AM, Modified Alt-Shot in the PM)
Beneficiary: Proceeds will go to the Evans Scholar Foundation
Field Size: 48 teams (96 people total)
A note about teams–we are going to require each team to have at least one Nest member at the time of registration, meaning the second member doesn’t necessarily have to be in the Nest. Also, registration will be for both teammates–so start thinking about a partner now. There will be some very special prizing at the event (awarded through competition and otherwise), and I will tease by saying BMW does not lay up! Will announce more as soon as things are set in stone.
Our goal is to have registration live on Monday, April 12th. I picture it being first come, first serve (as opposed to a lottery). I will update this thread as we dial in more details, and again when we have the link through Golf Genius for registration.
Rough schedule for the day is:
Breakfast at the course/Warm-up
18 holes two-person best ball (handicapped)
18 holes two-person modified alt-shot (handicapped)
Dinner, Awards, Prizes, Hanging Out
Any immediate questions? @Privatecollection and I can try to answer to the best of our knowledge, but we’re still dialing in some things. Look for per person cost to be about $500 (all-in).
Hope we’ll see you at Lakewood in Denver this June!!
