The 2014 Garden City Men's City Golf Championship will be contested Saturday and Sunday, with the 36-hole individual stroke play event teeing off on Saturday at The Golf Club at Southwind, while the final round will be played Sunday at Buffalo Dunes Golf Course.
Entry for this year's tournament is $65 and includes the two rounds of golf. Golf cart fees will be optional at each course. Golf cart fees are $17 per person at Southwind and $15 per person at Buffalo Dunes.
Eligibility requirements include golfers who are residents of Garden City or are members of either golf course. Golfers also must have a current GHIN handicap number or must declare scratch and play in the championship flight.
Players are allowed to make their own pairings and tee times for Saturday's opening round at Southwind. To reserve your tee time, contact the Southwind pro shop at 275-4080.
Following completion of Saturday's round, players will be re-paired by scores for Sunday's final round at Buffalo Dunes. Flights also will be determined by first-round scores. Sunday's tee times begin at 8 a.m.
Players also will be battling for spots on the 2014 Brookover Cup teams from each course as the top eight finishers will automatically earn spots for the Cup Matches, which are scheduled for late July.
In addition, there will be three Captain's picks and in a new twist, there will be two senior golfers, ages 60 and over, selected for the team. If a golfer belongs to both courses, they must declare in advance which team they will represent if they qualify.
Trent Specht of Buffalo Dunes is the defending champion.
For more information, contact The Golf Club at Southwind pro shop at 275-4080 or the Buffalo Dunes pro shop at 276-1210.
