CG Cup Continues With Puetz Golf Shootout at White Horse
Puget Sound region’s largest amateur tournament series continues its run through the Northwest’s top tracks.
Four tournaments, four different champions.
That’s been the tale so far in the 2012 Cascade Golfer Cup, our seven-event amateur tournament series on the region’s top courses, featuring over $100,000 in prizes. Of course, that’s also no surprise — the 23 tournaments Cascade Golfer has hosted over the last four years have produced a remarkable 22 different champions, with handicaps ranging from 2 to 32.
What that means for local golfers and CG readers is that literally everyone has a chance — with prizes awarded to the top-15 net and top-5 gross teams, and tournaments played in various team-scoring formats, play your best, and you could be walking home with the big prize.
This week, that prize is a four-night, four-round golf vacation for two to the Hollywood hideaway of Palm Springs — and with fall and winter closing faster than we’d like to admit, that package is looking mighty sweet. We’re also going to give away stay-and-play packages to other West Coast destinations, twosomes and foursomes to the top golf courses in the state, golf shoes, golf bags, clubs and more.
And of course, each participating team will also earn points towards the season-long Cascade Golfer Cup title and the overall grand prize — the 2013 Summer Golf Package, featuring twosomes to 20 of the state’s top tracks — plus additional entries towards our year-end drawing for a 54-hole golf trip of a lifetime to Pebble Beach.
Furthermore, this week’s Puetz Golf Shootout (Saturday, 1 p.m. tee time) will give players the chance to check out John Harbottle’s fantastic redesign of Kingston’s White Horse. Once the “course too tough to tame,” White Horse has been transformed by the removal of several bunkers and trees, and the leveling of many playing areas into a course that while still challenging (slopes in the 120s-130s), is one of the most creative and enjoyable in the region.
