FCF Presents the Classic Club Challenge, at The Mines Golf Course June 4th 2023
What: 24(ish) Blocked Tee times for the FCF in a non-elevated event
When: Sunday June 4th, Tee times from ~8am - 8:45am
Where: As made famous on Tour Sauce MI, Grand Rapids’ own downtown Devries specialty - the Mines GC
Who: YOU! Hosted by the @FreshCoastFlock , we welcome FCF, FCF adjacent, any other NLU Roost members who wants to have a good time, and possibly our rando friends we’re otherwise trying to convert into true sickos
Prizes: Points to qualify for FCF Roost qualifying spots, possibly duck race or raffle prizes
How much: $75 for 18 holes of Golf w/cart, with $9 per person going to charity
Scoring: Playing the one-ups, an 80% HCP Quota game - but with a #Catch.
The #Catch: The older* the clubs in your bag, the lower the quota you need to achieve! 4 categories: Modern, Classic, Retros, and Historical
*Age as defined by the newest club you’re playing
- Modern - what you can buy off the shelves today - GI irons, Modern mallet putters, Carbon Fiber Drivers (~0-7yr old): no bonus
- Classic - Your old highschool gamers, think early GI irons, Classic blades, a Ping Anser 2 , and some prime time big cat stuff (~7-20yr old clubs): you only need to achieve 85% your target quota
- Retros - Your dad’s sticks from the 90’s - early cavity backs, big bertha drivers, things of that nature (~20-35yr old clubs): only shooting for 70% your target quota
- Historical - Goodwill Persimmons, Hickories, and unidentifiable stuff you dug outa some old dude’s barn at an estate sale and had to brush the dust off with a broom (35+yr old) - 50% your target quota
As with Highlander “There can only be one” → so all categories are competing for one top spot & winner. Quota adjustments were made to balance the field according to careful mathematical evaluation of whatever seemed fair according to my 14mo and 3yr old kids. Sadly, there will be no negotiating, as neither one of them understands the concept.
The point is to have fun, follow the TC way, and get out together for a good time!
Google Doc here, get your name in there. We’ve got 24 spots blocked off so don’t wait! Can’t wait to go down and get down
