The day begins with an 18 hole golf tournament. the format for the tournament is a modified shamble. There are two teams (A and B) that will be represented in each foursome. You and your playing partner (team A) will each tee off on every hole and you will then choose your preferred tee shot between the two of you. From the chosen tee shot, you and your partner will each play out your own ball for the remainder of the hole. As a team, you will record the score of the player who scored the best on that hole as your team score. You will repeat this process on every hole. The other cart in your foursome (team B) will do likewise. At the end of the round, you will report your team score to the organizer and it will be added to the aggregate score for team A. Once all of the scores from team A and from team B have been added, the winning team will be crowned champions. The losing team buys drinks for the winning team at the first brewery.
The Pink Tee Drawing:
In what has become one of the more anticipated aspects of the tournament, we will hold our now infamous Pink Tee Drawing before the golfing begins in the morning. Each participant will draw out a golf tee from a bag and the lucky/unlucky individual who draws out the pink golf tee will be obligated to wear pink attire and play pink golf balls for the entirety of the round.
Following the golf portion of the day, we will enjoy a catered lunch to refuel before heading out on the Cycle Pub for some serious fun.
The Bend Trolley:
We love the cycle pub and we are not saying goodbye to it forever, but the new thing in Bend is the Trolley and we want everyone to be on the same vehicle at the same time. The trolley will pick us up at the course and take us to several watering holes before returning us to the course at the end. In between, we may take a few scenic routes along the way.
