BIG SKINS DAY THIS SUNDAY – MILL CREEK NORTH 9:54 AM
The PAC Tour concludes its 2013 season this Sunday at what may be the best reviewed course of the year – Mill Creek North. This Donald Ross designed beauty is the perfect setting to wrap up our skins season and we are expecting a great turnout for our biggest money game of the year. Closest to the pin money will remain the same at $5.00 per player but the skins game fee will increase from $20 to $25.00.
Please respond ASAP if you are planning to tee it up. The course is pristine and the weather forecast is a crisp morning with afternoon highs in the low 70’s, ideal conditions for play.
The “Pig Trophy” Race Is A Photo Finish
The coveted Pig Trophy – the award to the player who wins the most money on Tour – is up for grabs as we come down to the final event of the year. Less than $10 separates Larry M and Andy S for first place and what better setting to conclude business than Big Skins Day? Who will rise to the occasion and who will fold under the pressure? Sunday we find out when the “Pig” is passed on from last year’s winner – Rick H – to the new champion.
UNUTS Season Begins In One Week
While the PAC Tour concludes its 2013 season this Sunday, play will continue under the auspices of the Unuts Tour. The Unuts are an offshoot of the PAC Tour who continue to tee it up until the snow falls and in some cases, even when the snow is falling. It is comprised of the hard core players who battle wind, rain and sometimes ice to keep the skins game going. We have at least two foursomes of players who go deep into the winter season with the home course being Ponderosa Golf Club because it is open all year long.
Once the PAC Tour concludes, all handicaps are frozen for the year. No further adjustments are made. This handicap is the handicap you carry into the Unuts season and it will remain the same until the 2014 season begins. The skins game is exactly the same.
We begin play at Ponderosa once the winter rates begin. In the interim, we’ll travel to other local courses every Sunday, location depending on tee time availability and weather. The reason it’s call the “Unuts” tour is simple: we’ve played in such inclement weather conditions spectators who see us point their fingers and say “You’re nuts for playing in this weather.” Maybe. But that’s part of the fun and the competition. See you in one week!
Last but not least, once the snow falls so deep we can't dig our spikes into the ground, the Sunday morning game moves inside to the Dome-on-the-Range on Neville Island. More on this later.
