Manitou Passage – Cross Country Tournament – September 11, 2016

Manitou Passage - Cross Country Tournament
What, you may ask, is a Cross Country Golf Tournament?

A Cross Country Tournament is basically the same as a regular 4 person best ball, except that we are have taken the liberty of re-designing the holes (not literally). Instead of playing the holes as they currently are laid out, you will play them not only in a different order, but to different locations as well. For example, you may be starting out teeing off from the #1 tee box, but your target green will be #17 instead of #1. You might then proceed to #8 tee box and play to #7 green. You get the picture…we will be playing a total of 9 holes.

Keep one thing in mind, the number 1 goal of this tournament is to “Have fun!” This is a goofy format and there will be some goofy scores, but it will also give a chance to say “Thank You” to those who have supported us this season.


4 person best shot

Start Time:

10am shotgun start


$36 per person, non-members
$18 per person, members


9 holes of golf
Prizes! (Let’s just say that the prizes are not your conventional gift certificates. And, remember…this is for fun!)

Advance registration is required by September 2, 2016. Call 231.228.6000.
