Trees For Tomorrow Scholarship Golf Outing at the Eagle River Golf Course

The Format

is a two-person scramble with a shotgun start with Gross and Blink Bogey Divisions. The event also includes several challenge holes, putting and chipping contests, and raffles for a variety of prizes.  There will also be an opportunity to win $10,000 in the Hole-in-One Contest.

Location

Eagle River is a city in Vilas County, Wisconsin.  Because of the many lakes that populate the area around Eagle River, the city is known for being a popular "Northwoods" vacation and retirement destination for people from across the Upper Midwest, and the area contains many condominia, seasonal vacation homes and hunting cabins.

Eagle River's golf course is one of the most beautiful courses you will ever play... wooded, watered, carefully groomed and totally in keeping with the unspoiled beauty of Wisconsin's Northwoods.  The course is one of the most challenging courses in Wisconsin redesigned in 1988 by architect Don Herfort of Minneapolis, and features strategically bunkered greens, narrow forested fairways and prevalent water hazards. This course will excite and challenge golfers of all skill levels.

The Rules

  1. Game day is rain or shine.  Golf pro will determine if play will be suspended and whether rain checks will be issued for future play.  (It depends on how far into play we are:  no farther than 5 holes, 18 hole raincheck is issued, 5-13 holes a 9 hole rain check is issued.) Regardless of rain or shine we will continue our fundraiser by enjoying lunch and raffles.
  2. Use each member of the twosome’s drive twice.  The team selects the best shot and both players hit from within 6 inches of that spot without improving the position.
  3. When hitting from the best shot, the ball must be placed within 6 inches of its original location. Moving the ball from the rough to the fairway is not allowed.  If the ball chosen is in the rough, the ball dropped must also be in the rough.  If it is behind a tree, the ball dropped must also be behind the tree.  
  4. Play continues in the same manner until the hole is completed. Record one gross score for the team on the scorecard starting on the same hole you began play.  The “Official” scorecard must be exchanged in the group.  
  5. Both players can bump their ball – Winter Rules.
  6. Men play from the white tees; women play from the red tees.
  7. All putts must be holed out.
  8. The road, driveway, and parking lot are out-of-bounds.
  9. White stakes and fences define out-of-bounds.
  10. Red stakes and lines around ponds define lateral water hazards.
  11. Mulligans cannot be used on Flag Events.
  12. After the 18-hole competition is completed, turn your scorecard in at the scoreboard on the deck.  Team scores for 6 randomly selected holes will be totaled as to over and under par and multiplied by 3.   This becomes the Blind Bogey (BB) handicap. If your BB handicap is under par, your handicap will be added to your gross score to determine your Blind Bogey Net score.  If your BB handicap is over par, your handicap will be subtracted from your score to determine your Blind Bogey Net score.

Example 1:  If a team has 3 birdies, 2 pars, and a bogey on the 6 holes chosen, they are a -2x3= -6 handicap.  If their gross score is 68, their BB Net score will be 74.  
Example 2:  If a team has 1 birdie, 2 pars, and 3 bogeys on the 6 holes chosen, they are a +2x3= +6 handicap.  If their gross score is 72, their BB Net score will be 66.  
Teams can win in either the Gross or Blind Bogey Division, but not in both.

Hole-in-One Contest Rules

  1. The first 90 golfers who purchase a Hole-in-One contest ticket are eligible.
  2. Only one shot per player per target hole is permitted. No practice shots, mulligans or substituted shots for any players are permitted. Shots are only permitted during the stipulated rounds.
  3. Any hole-in-one must have been obtained by an officially registered and qualified contestant.  Golf Professionals of any kind are not qualified to be contestants unless specifically authorized in writing.  You are a contestant of the Hole-in-One contest upon purchase of a contest ticket for $5.00.
  4. Only Hole #13 shall be eligible for the “prize”.
  5. The yardage must be at least 160 yards, measured from tee marker to the flagstick. Any shot made from a distance less than 160 yards shall not qualify for a “prize” and may not be retaken.
  6. The scorecard for hole #13 reads 163 yards, but we will set the tee marker at 160.  Whatever distance we have on the insurance policy is where we will set the tee markers.  Depending on where the flag stick is that day, the golf course will laser the distance when they set the tee markers.  Therefore, if a woman tees off at 149 yards, she will not be eligible for the hole-in-one prize.  If she tees off from the 160 yard tee, then she would be eligible to win the prize.  All contestants who want to be eligible for the hole-in-one prize must tee off from the designated tee.
  7. Two volunteers (witnesses), not participating in the shot for the “prize”, must be at least 18 years or older. Volunteers (witnesses) must be stationed at Hole #13 for all “prize” attempts at that hole. A minimum of two witnesses is required.
  8. The “Prize Value” amount of $10,000 is the maximum that will be paid, regardless of how many hole-in-ones are scored.
  9. The “Prize Value” amount of $10,000 will be paid directly to the contestant regardless of who paid for the Hole-in-One ticket on behalf of the contestant.
  10. In addition to the “Hole-In-One Claim” Form, the original score card of the contestant must be submitted and signed by all participants in the contestant’s foursome.
