A few months ago we made the tough decision to postpone the Eric M. Suhl Memorial Golf Tournament. As our country is slowly reopening, we are excited to announce that we have set a new date! Please mark October 17th down on your calendar for the 5th Annual Eric M. Suhl Memorial Golf Tournament. We will continue to monitor recommended safety guidelines, and will send more details as we get closer to the event.
Registration and breakfast begin at 7:30 a.m., shotgun start at 9:00 a.m. Please show up at least 30 minutes prior in order to register and get to your golf cart prior to the opening remarks. Show up earlier if you want to go to the driving range and warm up. Range balls and a shuttle to and from the driving range will be provided. Prizes awarded for 3 places. On-course contests include: closest to the pin, longest drive, shortest drive, tee box toss, the big draw, rip the skip, pin head, and a putting contest. See below for a description of the potential contests to be featured at the tournament.
There will be a luncheon following the tournament where the prizes will be awarded. Even if you do not want to participate in the tournament, there is a lunch only option available for purchase. The luncheon will begin around 1:30 p.m.
We are very excited and hope to see many of you out there!
Entry Fee Includes
Sponsorship opportunities are available at various levels for individuals and businesses that wish to support the tournament. See the official sponsorship page for available sponsorships.
Each member of your scramble team will tee off from your starting hole. Choose the best tee shot. Mark the spot of the best tee shot with a golf tee or ball marker. Direct your playing partners to pick up their ball and hit from within one club length of the marked spot (cannot place ball closer to the hole). Continue selecting the best shot until one player hits the ball in the hole for par or better. If your team cannot make par, pick up, record a bogey, and move to the next hole. Tie breakers will be determined by comparing scores on 1st handicap hole through 18th if needed.
Below are examples of games from previous tournaments:
Registration is available on an individual or foursome basis. There is a post-tournament lunch-only option for those who are not participating in the golf tournament, but wish to attend the post-tournament festivities.
If you register on an individual basis and know who your teammates are, please list them where provided. Otherwise, we will contact you to find out this information prior to the tournament.
The Eric M. Suhl Memorial Golf Tournament features a raffle with great items. Tickets will be on sale through the website and will also be sold the day of the tournament. Tickets purchased prior to the tournament will be available for pickup at check-in the day of the tournament. You must be present in order to win!
Each raffle item will have a box next to it for raffle participants to place as many of their tickets in as they choose. This gives participants discretion to pick which prizes they can potentially win.
Below is a list of the raffle packages from the 2019 tournament. The 2020 list will be updated as we receive additional items.
