The P.O.E.T.S. Golf Club of Fairfield Glade would like to remind all male golfers that their Fall Invitational is being held Oct. 11, 12, and 13 this year and entries are currently being accepted. This year the field is limited to 60 2-man teams. Several entries have been received and if you would like to play you are encouraged to get you entry in as soon as possible to guarantee you place in the field. ENTRY BLANKS are available from all Fairfield Glade pro shops and the Fairfield Glade golf web site and the P.O.E.T.S. golf club web site.
Little has changed for this Fall Invitational; the P.O.E.T.S. have been under the very capable guidance of Chet Weeks for several years but due to family obligations Chet is unable to handle the league and Invitational this year. Joe Barth, Jerry Allard, and Howard Swan (as a committee of 3) are working along with several other P.O.E.T.S. volunteers and the fine professional staff at Fairfield Glade to see that the Invitational is as good as ever.
Again the event will start on Thursday afternoon with a putting contest followed by a “Rules and Information” meeting and evening meal from the Heatherhurst snack bar. The $70 entry fee covers your participation in the putting contest where around $500 in prizes and cash will be awarded. Friday play is on the Crag course consisting of 9 holes scramble and 9 holes modified alternate shot. Saturday play is on the Brae course and consists of 9 holes best ball net and 9 holes both balls net. Handicaps for Friday are determined using 30 percent of the USGA index of the low handicap team member combined with 20 percent of the USGA index of the higher handicap team member. Saturday play is contested using individual handicaps based on your USGA index. All play is from the white tees with approximately eight team per flight and 3 prizes awarded in each flight. As in the past the very popular “horse race” contest covering the entire field will award prizes to the win, place, and show teams and their supporters.
The P.O.E.T.S. golf club is most thankful for the following sponsors for without them the Invitational would not be the same: Cumberland Eye Care-Dr. Stewart Gallaway, Happy Hound Realty-Karen Bertram, Dr. Peter Koletar DDS-Family Denistry, Bertram Golf-Pat Doran, Glade Realty/Fairfield Homes-Roger Price, and Progressive Savings Bank.
