Divine 9 Road Trip
set for Monday
The Divine 9 Road Trip will kick-off play throughout the Carson City area Monday.
The Divine 9 courses, a cooperative of the area's nine golf entities, each designate two signature holes for the competition.
Players can expect an amalgamated par-70 course of 6,500 yards with a heavy sprinkling of par 5s and 3s over barrancas and water hazards.
Courses include: Genoa Lakes Golf Club: Lakes and Resort Courses, Dayton Valley, Carson Valley, Eagle Valley East, Eagle Valley West, Empire Ranch, Silver Oak and Sunridge.
The Road Trip is limited to the first 64 competitors with groups traveling and playing in four sets of 16 players. Following a Sunday evening welcome reception, individual shuttle buses depart at first light Monday morning toward a different course.
It's a race against the sunset, so official hosts will keep rules of the day - no range balls, warm-ups, practice swings, or plum-bobbed putts.
Eight players in two foursomes will attack each hole separately, and then switch holes to complete a course. Then it's back on the bus to the next course until the final putt drops on the last hole of the ninth course.
To keep the net tournament fun, pressure-free and moving, players can pick up at triple bogey and take their best shot at the next hole. While top scores will be acknowledged (handicaps are encouraged), prizes will be awarded at random providing everyone an equal chance to win.
The $295 registration includes two nights lodging at the Gold Dust West Casino, welcome party, awards dinner, 18 holes of golf, shuttle service between courses, breakfast, traveling lunch, beverages, tee prizes and a surprise or two among the memories of a lifetime.
