On October 18th and 19th Rarity Bay and Tellico Village will compete in a two-day Ryder Cup Challenge. There will be four 9-hole matches played in the following order - Four Ball, Modified Alternate Shot, Scramble and Individual matches. The winning team will hold the LTC Cup until next year's Challenge. Each team consists of 26 players - 13 players who play from the Tellico Village white tees/Rarity Bay blue tees, 12 players who play from the Tellico Village orange tees/Rarity Bay while tees...and 1 pro from each community. Both teams will name one 'alternate' for each tee location in case of injury.
Tellico Village players will be selected from a season-long performance evaluation charted by our Captains, Larry Mau and Bronco von Hoerling, assigning weight from the MGA Player of the Year standings. The Captains will establish a list of players in contention to play in the LTC Challenge. Those players will be invited to a free beer-appetizer event immediately following the July 11th MGA competition. This pre-meeting will be held in the glass room at the Tanasi Clubhouse. Additional information relating to the golf competition will be provided at that time.
The goal is to assemble the strongest Tellico Village team possible. 11 and 10 players will be selected by tee location based on merit as described above. There will also be 2 "Captain's Pick" players for each tee location. Let the Captains know your interest in playing in this prestigious annual event over the next few weeks so they can eliminate those who could not be available even if selected. We want to have an enthusiastic and committed team of golfers at the July 11th get-together.
