(Unless I screwed something up, I think I) Just sent an email to Nest members with instructions on how to sign up for the Rustic Canyon local qualifier.
If you opted out of receiving emails, that’s kind of on you, but the text was:
I’m thrilled to officially open up NIT SZN with registration for our first-ever local qualifier at Rustic Canyon GC in Moorpark, CA. Tee times are booked from 10:50 to 11:50 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 10. (If need be, I’m happy to add a few more tee times before/after.)
If you’re able to join us at Rustic Canyon, simply reply to this email (If you’re reading this on The Refuge, shoot me a note – dj at no laying up dot com) with your name, Refuge username and handicap . Right now we have room for 26, in addition to myself and T. Ron Carter.
The format will be a handicapped stableford quota game similar to what the Strapped Boys play in their traditional “Money Rounds.” As of now, the top four finishers will earn exemptions into the season-ending Nest Invitational Tournament.
These local qualifiers are meant to be very informal gatherings (pop in the pro shop, pay your greens fee and hang out for some beers afterwards). Ideally, they’re a chance to get together at a great course and meet some other golf sickos in your area. If you’re not in Southern California, fear not!
