Wanted to invite the wider Roost community to a fun event that the Stroh’s are trying out for the first time this year. Part of the benefit of being this far south is that we can (usually) play golf all year, even if the weather turns a bit chilly. Plus, we all like to drink beer. So we’re gonna play six different six-hole match-play matches with some six packs of beer, and hopefully it’s cold enough that both the golfers and the beer are on ice.
Dates: Friday Jan 20th (11am tee time) and Saturday Jan 21st (11am tee time)
Location: Landa Park Golf Course, adjacent to the Schlitterbahn resort in New Braunfels, TX (MAP)
Format: Six different six-hole matches, net match play. We’ll group you into two different foursomes over the two rounds, and you’ll play each person in your foursome for six holes. Point for a win, half point for a tie, six points max total per person. Winner takes home a trophy, and highest-finishing Stroh’s member is one of our Roost qualifiers.
Cost: $20 to me to register, tee times paid for directly to the proshop each day. Money serves to hold your spot, covers food on Friday, covers the prizes, and the remainder will go to a charitable donation. We also encourage personal donations over the two rounds. Birdie challenges, double bogey challenges, and the like.
To Register: DM me.
At the moment, we’ve got 5 open spots (20 total players, keeping it small in year 1), and I suspect we’ll need one or two off of the waitlist (just how these things go). I also have a large condo booked (sleeps 10 in beds with room for air mattresses), and there are cheap condos available at the same resort. We’re gonna do a big group dinner on Friday night.
Come one, come all. Flights into Austin are cheap, and it’s only about a ~25 minute ride from the airport. If someone wants to come in from that far out of town, I’ll either pick you up at the airport, or personally cover your uber to and from :).
I know the @BigPlex folks have an event in Ft. Worth that same week (the Icebowl is fun AF, go check that out too), but would love to see any of them or @TheSupercell since you guys are our regional roost competitors, but truly, open to everyone.
@STROHS last year donated to the Austin Firefighters Relief and Outreach Fund (afrof.org), which is near and dear to my heart as my wife is a firefighter. Afrof is basically AFLAC for firefighters - there’s a ton that workers comp doesn’t cover if you get hurt or sick, and this charity is structured to be able to literally just write a check to the family of a firefighter. Stroh’s haven’t decided if afrof is the '23 recipient, but if it’s not them it’ll be someone equally deserving.
Come join us for a fun event at a really fun golf course.
