Individual Awards

We had 9 opportunities for players to win an individual prize, with 4 Longest Drive holes and 4 Closest to Pin holes, as well as our hickory club challenge. Players were limited to one prize per person, to ensure the prizes were split amongst the players as fairly as possible. Winners of the longest drive & closest to pin competitions each receive a sleeve of premium Srixon Z-Star balls, a bag of premium tees, and their choice from the following list of prizes:
