The local golf season is just around the corner, and Montauk Downs has announced two programs of interest to local golfers. “The Hamptons Cup” is now entering its second season. A match-play team competition, it is open to two-man teams representing local restaurants. There is no limit to the number teams a restaurant may enter, and a total of 24 teams are expected to compete in series of 18-hole matches leading to a 36-hole net medal playoff. Advancing teams will battle for the cup (and cash) in a match-play finale.
The Downs is also sponsoring a Men’s League. Beginning on April 16, the league will run through October, offering a variety of playing formats including low gross, better ball, scramble, stableford, and blind draw partner. This is a terrific way to have fun while sharpening your competitive skills on a great course. Play is scheduled for Wednesdays at 1 p.m., and you must have a USGA handicap to participate.
And in a free event open to all, the pro shop staff will conduct an informal seminar on Saturday, March 22, at 4 p.m. Topics will include why the average handicap hasn’t changed and ways to jump-start your season. A Powerpoint presentation will be followed by a question-and -answer session.
For more information on any of these events, call the pro shop at 668-1100.
