Margarita Golf Tournament


This is a Ladies Golf tournament we have been playing here for many years and it always seems to be a favorite. By calling it the Margarita it turns into a Mexican Fiesta with decoration and food to go with the festivities. Our Tournament Chairman set the date for this tournament on April 16 with the play being a scramble of foursomes. The ladies liked to have the luncheon at a member’s home as the first years I joined Mill Creek Golf Club it was at a member’s home on the golf course. Since she moved away I offered to have it at my home on the golf course the past two years.

On this day we had 24 ladies signed up and we were welcomed to the tournament with Energy bars, banana’s and gift bags by the tournament director. The Pro Shop had printed up neat pink score cards for each team with the golf hole marked where they were to start. They also made up a team display chart that was very attractive. Everyone was in good spirits as teams prepared for the day of fun golf. We were allowed to buy two mulligan shots each which always help lower your score. Our cards were marked for closest to the pin on two par three holes and two long drives divided into two different handicap groups



My team was second off #13 as we gathered there getting some exercise swinging our drivers. The weather was cooperating with clouds but no rain so what could be better. Our game was going just fine and on the next hole if we paid our young pro a $1.00 each he would hit the drives for us. He did very well and we birdied that hole. Everyone in our foursome helped in some way and we ended up with a score of 70.

It was arranged that my team would end up close to where I live but they did not think since we were put it the B section to tee off it would make me late getting to my home. As we were standing on that par three tee off I watched as several golf carts were going down the road to my home. This made me very anxious and I pulled that tee shot out of bounds into the trees. We did get a shot on the green but had run out of mulligans to make our birdie.

I arrived at my home and greeted the golfers relaxing on my patio enjoying the golf course view. I quickly got our luncheon on the serving table. The social chairman and I had prepared Taco Salad Bowls with all the fixings so golfers could pick and choose what they wanted to add to their salads. I had tables set up for 26 in colorful Mexican decoration. The buffet worked great as they picked up their colorful plate and taco bowl and filled it with what they wanted including several salad dressings and toppings.



As for the Magaritas the husband of one of our members offered his specialty of making the most delicious Frozen Margaritas for all who wanted one and many did just that. We had time to enjoy our meal when the tournament director with her assistant and our young pro arrived with the results of our Scramble. It turned out we had a tie with a score of 70 so it was decided on play-off holes and our team got second place.

It was a great day and everything went off fine although I would have rather been in the first group so I could get to my home before the golfers arrived. It all worked out well and I even had a Piñata I was sure someone would want to take some swings at it but had no offers. It did help make a colorful sight to my patio now I can use it for another day. Try something like this type of tournament with your golf group it helps create interest and you can use all types of players. They usually are paired up by handicap so it makes it even and all types of players will enjoy this event.
