The Weekender, our annual club roadtrip, returns to Tahoe this year and playing two fantastic courses in Truckee which we last played in 2012–Old Greenwood & Gray’s Crossing. Mark your calendars for the weekend of August 3rd and 4th, where Team Red and Team Black will face off in a Ryder Cup style match play.
You are cordially invited to join us this summer for The Weekender 2019, the Dragons Golf Club's annual intra-club team match play road trip, up in the beautiful High Sierras. This is our signature event, and it is always a blast to travel together and play the best 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 Four-Ball matches on Day 1, and Match Play Singles on Day 2. We will play two Bucket List-worthy challenges in Old Greenwood and Gray's Crossing, both widely regarded as among the Top 50 courses in California. Team Black will be captained once more by Davis Lee, while Team Red will be led by John Park. Those who can get away early on Friday can join Mike Gui at Coyote Moon for a bonus/practice round on Friday afternoon.
We will have a few options in accommodations, including large vacation rental homes near Gray's Crossing and a block of hotel rooms at the Hampton Inn and Suites of Truckee. On Saturday night, we will have our traditional Weekender members' dinner in Truckee. Immediately following the conclusion of the final round on Sunday, we will gather at the Gray's Crossing clubhouse for our awards reception.
Registration is now open, and closes on Monday, July 1. The entry fee is only $399, including two rounds of golf and the Saturday night Members dinner. On Thursday night, July 11, following the Club tournament at Green Hills Golf & Country Club, there will be a members-only buffet dinner at Green Hills, 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.
