FINAL Goalpost Outing of the 2021 season.  GOALPOST AGM & RYDER CUP COMPETITION.  PLEASE arrive by 7:45 AM for AGM Meeting and Ryder Cup Competition.

Morning: Team Fourball match with your partner


Afternoon: Singles match with your opponent to be decided within your foursome

Handicaps: Take half of your 18-hole handicap to decide your 9-hole handicap (i.e. a 6 handicap would get 3 strokes in the morning & 3 strokes in the afternoon; a 9 handicap would get 5 strokes in the morning and 4 in the afternoon; a 21 handicap would get 11 strokes in the morning and 10 strokes in the afternoon)


1)     This is a Match Play scoring event where putts can be conceded by opposing teams.  The Irish Team won the Goalpost Cup in 2020 and will only need half of the total points to retain the cup.  The American Team will need half of the total points PLUS ½ point to win back the cup.

2)     All fescue areas not otherwise marked by the course shall be played as a red hazard with a one-stroke penalty, two club lengths from the nearest point of entry if ball not found.  PLEASE LIMIT YOUR SEARCH TIME TO THREE (3) MINUTES.

3)     Please be aware of marked areas that are out of bounds.

4)     All players MUST exchange scorecards with another member of your group and keep track of your GROSS SCORE, NET SCORE, and STABLEFORD points.

5)     Score cards turned in with ONLY stableford points only hurts the player doing so.  A proper handicap cannot be calculated without the Gross scoring.

-PLEASE, if you plan to participate in birdies and par 3’s, pay your fee to the starter prior to teeing off. If you can’t find the starter, ask someone. Once teed off, you cannot participate.

-Scorecards must be signed and attested, then turned in to the locked wooden box.

-Slow play will NOT be tolerated; it is your job to maintain pace of play. 

-Birdies on the Par 3’s, $10 split the pot.  Hole in One takes the entire pot.  Write your birdies on the pad provided.  

-Remember to highlight any gross birdies on the scoring poster for any par 3’s, or you will not be paid.

-Any rulings or discrepancies MUST be brought to a committee member BEFORE you leave the course.

-There will be closest to the pin competitions on all par 3 holes. 

-Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your tee time.  If you miss it, you must catch up to your foursome on the course…you will NOT be moved to a later group and you will receive no points for holes missed.

-Cell phones MUST be put to silent and may not be used during play unless for GPS purposes. 

-We will play in all-weather unless the course is officially closed.  If you commit to play on Tuesday, and do not show, you will be fined $50 and you will not be eligible to play until that fine is paid.

-No denim jeans will be allowed at any Goal Post Outing.  Please always wear proper golf attire.

-All putts must be holed out; no gimmies except in Match Play that ONLY count toward the match.
