You may want to bring a sweater; as there is patio area and cool breezes are always a possibility in the mountains. This is the night designed to kick-off the annual meeting by renewing old acquaintances and greeting new attendees.

This golf event is for member executives and their business guests. The Member 18-hole tournament will be held Monday, June 25 at 12:40 p.m. on the West Course. The format will be a four-person “scramble.” This type of format suits all levels of play and everyone is encouraged to sign-up. Although the tournament scoring does not use handicaps, we ask for your handicap, if you have one, or if not, estimate your average score for a round of 18 holes. This will enable teams to be assembled in an equitable manner. The pro will have the carts set with your clubs and players names upon your arrival at the golf area for the tournament.

The course and warm–up facility are conveniently located at The Broadmoor so it is only a few minutes to walk the golf club. Box lunches will be on the carts and available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Your clubs will be on the cart if you are renting or if you send them to the Bell Desk upon arrival at The Broadmoor.

The fee is $280 which includes greens fee, cart, warm-up cage balls, prizes, scoring fee and boxed lunch. Both team prizes and individual prizes will be awarded at the dinner Monday evening. Registration must be completed by Friday June 8th. After this date, there will be no guarantee The Broadmoor can accommodate additional players. There will be no refunds for cancellations.
