As Wild Card Weekend is about set to kick off, what better time than to look ahead a few weeks to Championship Sunday! If you are a Saints Fan (or an Eagles Fan like myself), unfortunately there won't be much to look forward to over the coming weeks. Nevertheless, everyone enjoys the NFL Playoffs. Particularly NFL Championship Sunday, which will be January 24th this year.
Coincidentally, Copper Mill Golf Club will be hosting our Annual Big Game Shamble this year at 12 pm on Championship Sunday! Typically reserved for Super Bowl Weekend, this year we decided to move it up a few week, so we were not competing with the Spanish Town Parade in Baton Rouge.
The event is a two person shamble...what is that you ask? Well it is a combination of two formats, scramble and best ball. Both players will tee off, and like a scramble, the team selects the best shot and then will play from that position. Unlike a scramble however, after you select the best tee ball, each team member plays their own ball for the rest of the hole. Whichever member scores the best, the team uses that as their score for that hole. The format is really fun, and it allows those that wish to play their own ball the opportunity to do just that, at least 90% of the time.
The event cost is only $65/player for general public (CMGC Members get in for $45 and Copper Card Members are $55). The fees cover 18 hole greens fees w/cart, on-course prizes for long drive, closest to pin, straightest drive, and longest punt (yes we actually make you kick a football)! The event will be flighted by score following the round, and prize payouts will be based on participation. The entry fee also includes a football themed tailgate party with food & complimentary non alcoholic beverages, and players are encouraged to hang out and enjoy the Conference Championship games that will be playing on our big screen.
