GT-Challenges

Poker Run:

Participants will buy-in for $10 at registration and select the first three (3) cards for their hand. Those three (3) cards will be recorded by event staff on a scoring sheet that the participants will take out on the course. The last two (2) cards will be drawn at separate pre-arranged locations while on the course, and the cards will be recorded by event staff on the scoring sheet. There will be an opportunity to exchange up to five (5) cards for a fee of $5/card in an attempt to improve the player’s final hand. If a player draws a card they already have, the player will re-draw any card that is a duplicate. The winning hand of five (5) at the end of the day, as determined by standard poker hand rankings, will win a prize.

 

Mulligans:

Players can purchase mulligans (a chance to replay a stroke) during Registration at a rate of three (3) for $10. If you run out of mulligans or did not purchase any during Registration but would like to replay your stroke, you can “buy” mulligans on the course at a rate of one (1) for $5. Mulligans “purchased” on the course will be settled at the Registration table before lunch.

 

Raffle Tickets:

“Pick Your Prize” raffle tickets will be sold during Registration at a rate of 1/$3, 2/$5, 5/$10, or 15/$20. Participants will be able to enter raffle tickets for prizes of their choice.

Dixon Challenge:

A Dixon Golf rep will be set up at a hole and provide players with a free Dixon Earth golf ball. Golfers will be challenged to try their golf ball against the eco-friendly Dixon Earth ball. Cost to participate in the Challenge is $10, and golfers will receive $150 worth of products and certificates from Dixon and their partners. Golfers who accept the Challenge will be awarded one extra shot, and will receive a sleeve of Dixon Earth golf balls if either shot lands on the green. NHATA will receive 20% of the gross revenue from Dixon Challenge.

 

Putting Contest:

Participants can buy in for $5 and will receive three (3) chances to sink a putt. The winner will be determined by the golfer who sinks the putt or gets closest to the hole. In the event that multiple golfers sink putts, the winner will be determined by the golfer that sinks the most putts in the first round. If there is a tie after the first round, the golfers in the tie will proceed to the second round where they will receive one (1) additional chance to sink a putt. The winner will be determined by the golfer who sinks the putt or gets closest to the hole. Subsequent rounds will occur following a format similar to the second round if a tie persists until one (1) winner remains.

Prize will be a $25 Pro-Shop gift certificate for the longest drive in each category.

 

Closest to the Pin – Men/Women:
