ROANOKE COUNTRY CLUB 
SEPTEMBER 19th – 20th 2020
 

Are we having A 2020 Parent-Child TOURNAMENT?

Yes!  After much consideration, we are planning to play the 2020 Parent-Child Tournament with a few precautions, which include:
  • Masks will be required until temperature is confirmed during check in
  • Tee times, instead of a shotgun start, will prevent larger gatherings
  • Simplified raffle (not entering the First Tee facility)
  • Boxed lunches instead of buffet style
  • Online scoring
  • Masks are required at all times in the clubhouse
  • Awards will be announced online (on both Saturday and Sunday evenings)
  • Prizes may be picked up at the First Tee office beginning Friday, September 25th

ELIGIBILITY

First Tee Parent-Child is open to two-player teams consisting of Parents and Children of ALL ages.  The definition of “Parent” may be mother, father, step-parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or mentor.  The Committee has final approval on all teams.  Please remember that we always welcome and encourage Adult-Adult teams in our 18-Hole Division!

TOURNAMENT FORMAT & DIVISIONS

Competition will follow the USGA rules of play and players will choose their Division from the following:
5-Hole “FUN” Division:  5 holes in a Captain’s Choice format (mostly Crabapple)
9-Hole “FUN” Division: 9 holes in a Captain’s Choice format (Crabapple)
18-Hole Division: 18 holes in a Modified Alternate Shot format (Redbud – Crabapple)

There will be a  Championship Flight in the 18-Hole Tournament for any teams that have two players with an established handicap and choose “Championship Flight” on the application.  Gross and Net prizes will be awarded in the Championship Flight.  Those participating in the 5, 9 or 18-Hole Tournament without a handicap will be flighted based on skill level, age and past tournament experience. Awards will be based on number of entries received.

ENTRY FEES, DEADLINE & APPLICATION

This entry fee includes 5, 9 or 18 holes with cart, range balls, box lunch, tee gift and awards.  All entries are due by September 14th and teams can easily register and pay online at HERE.  Be sure and register by August 15th to take advantage of Early Bird pricing!  Please note that in an effort to increase social distancing measures and prevent large gatherings, we will be using tee times this year. Below you will see a range of times that your tee time could be. We will contact you with the exact time closer to the tournament.  If you would like to play with more than one child at different times, we will make every effort possible to accommodate tee times to allow you to do so!
