General Information

Directions to the Woodland Links Golf Course, the Bedford Hotel and the Clinton Raceway & Casino are available by clicking on the map links above. The event for Saturday and Sunday is a three or four man Calcutta (depending on the number of players). We will have a first and second place purse as well as eight closest-to-the-pin prizes. These costs have been included in your weekend package fee. The three or four man teams will be pre-selected based on handicaps. If short players, teams will randomly be selected to have one spot auctioned off, all other teams will be complete. The draw for the empty spot or spots will be done prior to the team auction on Friday.  A player can only buy one additional spot and cannot buy a second spot on his own team. We will sell any open spots after golf on Friday, after which will auction off the Calcutta teams. Your gross score from both days will be combined to represent our major tournament event for the year. All points will be doubled. You will not be golfing with your Calcutta teammates and, as this is a money game, your playing partners will be predetermined on Friday. We ask that West Hill Golf Association rules are strictly enforced. If you need a ruling, two of your three golfing partners must agree to the call. We are instituting a live handicap system so all score cards are to be handed in to the scorekeeper GEORGE OATWAY
