More Event Information
Play a round for the Retrievers! Join us for our first ever virtual golf tournament in support of Retriever Athletics. This tournament is a fun, new way for UMBC alumni and friends to engage with one another during the COVID-19 pandemic. See below for details.
★ GOLF RULES
Golfers will register a foursome ($40) and may play their 18-hole rounds at a course of their choice between July 10-19, following “Best Ball” rules. A course par minimum of 72 is required.
“Best Ball” – Each player plays their own ball until the completion of every hole.
Teams will use the lowest score in their foursome as their team score. Ties will be decided by a scorecard playoff following the USGA formula of comparing the matching of scores starting on the #1 handicap hole, #2 handicap hole, etc. (at the respective course) until the tie break occurs.
At the end of the round please send a photo of the official score card (or whatever you use to keep score) to Liz Frediani (Contact event using the form below.) and Seth Nagle (Contact event using the form below.)
★ BEST DRESSED CONTEST
The foursome with the best team attire will win the “best dressed” prize! Be sure to submit your photos on the Facebook event page or via email to Seth or Liz (contact info below).
★ HOLE-IN-ONE CONTEST
The par 3 target hole(s) must measure at least 150 yards from tee to flagstick to qualify as a hole-in-one prize hole. Only one shot per player per target hole is permitted. No practice shots, mulligans, or substitute shots for other players are permitted on the target holes to be eligible for the hole-in-one contest.
