Have Fun for a Good Cause, Round Up a Team and Play in the TXAPA Tee Off Virtual Golf Tournament
When and Where
Anytime between Friday, August 21, 2020 and Sunday, September 20, 2020 at the course of your choice.
What is a "virtual" golf tournament? It's much like running a virtual race where each runner chooses their course, runs a specified distance, and posts their time to the race website. Collectively, the runners have run a "virtual" race. In the same way, you play a virtual golf tournament on the course of your choice and following some rules to which everyone in the tournament will adhere. Your team will interact and post scores via a closed Facebook group for registered players only. Each registered player will receive a golf ball marked with the TXAPA logo for game play. Teams are strongly encouraged, but we welcome any player who wants to get out and play while supporting a good cause.
ALL proceeds will go directly to the TXAPA Scholarship Program, a federally recognized public charity under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501 (c) (3). Donations are tax-deductible under IRC 170.
One to four-person shamble. In a shamble, each golfer tees off on every hole. The team then selects their best drive and each team member plays their second shot from there. After the second shot, each golfer plays their own ball for the remainder of the hole. Ladies will be playing from the forward tees and men will be playing from the middle tees. You may move your ball one scorecard length.
