On Monday, July 22nd, the Carrollton Park DGC Handicap Singles League will be hosting a mid-season BIG ACE DUMP! This is a carryover format from when Ben Hart used to run the Wednesday league at Creve Coeur Lake Park a couple of years back. Basically, whatever money that is in the ACE POOL (not much money right now) is combined with the money that has been collected from the 50/50s (a BUNCH of money right now) and any money that is collected from entry fees ($5 for league regulars and $10 for guests). This pile of money is then split up equally between all 18 holes and is given away that day! All of the holes will have flagged off teepads that shorten the holes to a reachable distance (i.e. 250'-300' for the longest holes & around 150' for the shortest holes). You will be sent out on a card with a tape measure. Everyone will get 2 throws at each basket. The closest throw in your group gets measured off and marked down on the card. At the end of the day, all of the groups will compare notes to figure out who the winner on each hole is. This format is a complete blast and an opportunity to load your wallet up BIG TIME!
I will post more details as the date gets closer...I am sure that I am forgetting some things at the moment. In any event, you don't want to miss out on this event! The last card will go out around 5:45-6:00P, so hopefully that gives everyone a chance to head over after work. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
