You are cordially invited to join us this summer for Weekender 2017, the Dragons Golf Club's annual intra-club team match play road trip -- this year, we're going back to Lake Tahoe, a favorite destination in the Weekender rota. This is our signature event, and it is always a blast to travel together and play the best courses this state has to offer.
For one weekend, we will divide the Club into factions of RED and BLACK. We will go Ryder Cup-style with a Four- Ball on Day 1, and Match Play Singles on Day 2. We will play two Bucket List-worthy challenges in Edgewood Tahoe and Genoa Lakes. The Lake Course at Genoa Lakes is ruggedly beautiful, while Edgewood Tahoe is the home of the American Century Celebrity Championship. Team Red will be captained once again by Mike Lum, while Team Black will be led by 2016 Dragon Cup Champion Davis Lee. Those who can get away early on Friday can join club CFO Mike Gui at the Ranch course of Genoa Lakes for a bonus round on Friday afternoon.
We will have a few options in accommodations, including a choice between South Shore casino-hotel rooms and large vacation rental homes. On Saturday night, we will have our traditional Weekender members' dinner and the Captains will do the singles match-up, President Cup style. Immediately following the conclusion of the final round on Sunday, we will gather at the Genoa Lakes clubhouse for our awards reception.
Registration is now open and closes on Wednesday, July 5. The entry fee is only $399, including two rounds of golf and the Saturday night Members dinner. On Wednesday, July 12, following the Club tournament at Lake Merced Golf Club, there will be a members-only buffet dinner at Lake Merced, and the two team captains will conduct the draft of the RED and BLACK squads. All members are strongly encouraged to attend this entertaining proceeding, and to lobby the two captains to avoid being picked last.
We look forward to seeing you in August, as we continue a club tradition and celebrate good golf and good food with good friends.
