This year’s 3-Club is on Saturday 29th September. Many people think the 3-Club is the best golfing event at our club, and it’s open to all members.
It’s a fundraising event to raise money to support your club, and it’s a chance to show off your golfing skills by using just a putter and two other clubs of your choice. It’s a pairs competition, but you enter as an individual and find out who your partner is at the open draw at the start of the day. The format is a 4-Ball-Better-Ball with 7/8 handicap allowance.
This years event falls on the second day of this years Ryder Cup from France, so the dress theme is the flag colours of one of the European countries being represented. To give you some examples:
- Paul Casey, Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton, Ian Poulter & Justin Rose – England – RED / WHITE
- Rory McIlroy – Northern Ireland – RED / WHITE
- Thorbjorn Olesen – Denmark – RED / WHITE
- John Rahm & Sergio Garcia – RED / YELLOW
- Alex Noran & Henrik Stenson – BLUE / YELLOW
- Francesco Molinari – GREEN / WHITE / RED
Or you could be brave and dress in USA colours RED / WHITE / BLUE
Entry is excellent value at £25.00, which includes a formal three course dinner, and of course the golf competition itself. After the golf, during the meal we’ll have a raffle, a quiz and other events that form part of the day to raise money for the charity. Raffle tickets are £5.00 and entry to the nearest the pin competition is £1.00.
Details for the day
The competition begins with a shotgun start at 10.00am, and there ‘s an option to have a Full English Breakfast before that from 8:30am. Note this is not included in the entry fee so please book and pay for breakfast before the day (at the bar).
Whether you’re having the breakfast or not please arrive by 9:15am to find out who you’re playing with and for the details about the day. Gentlemen, if you wish to dress in country colours for the formal meal after the golf that would be great but please make sure you bring your jacket and tie. The whole event usually finishes by 5.30pm.
For more information or any questions, please contact Paul Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org
The maximum number of entries is 80, so enter now in the clubhouse foyer or Golf Reception, but please make sure you’re free all day because players pulling out at the last minute makes things very difficult for the organisers. Note it’s an all day event not just the golf itself.
Come and be part of ‘probably the best golfing day of the year’. Organiser Paul Baker says “Once you’ve played you’ll return year after year.”
