Ever wonder how you would react under tournament conditions?
Returning to the 2017 RDGA Tournament Schedule are the popular RDGA Play Days; events open to ALL amateur golfers - men and women, ages 18 and above - with an active USGA GHIN Handicap Index through the Rochester District Golf Association. If you've never played in an actual golf tournament before - or if you've always wanted to play some of the best courses in the area - then RDGA Play Days are for you!
RDGA Play Days are designed to be a fun, yet competitive day for golfers of all ability levels. Registration for Play Day events is $85 per person and includes use of the club's practice facility; a cart and 18 holes of stroke play at 100-percent handicap; as well as prizes by flight and hors d'ouvres after the tournament. Contestants are welcome to request pairing in foursomes with friends who are also registered to play. Flights include Men's White Tees, Men's Gold Tees and Women's Red Tees; prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in each flight, in the form of Pro Shop gift certificates at the host club.
