One of the most active, fun, and diverse offerings at Shadow Hills, continues to be the Shadow Hills Senior Men’s Tour, created and run by “the Commish,” Steve Mason. (See a previous article on Steve Here).
Each year, a large group of Shadow Hills Senior (50+ or those who will turn 50 this year) men, participate in a “Fed-Ex Tour” style of events, with accumulated points being awarded to a leaderboard, which ultimately results in the awarding of the “Mason Cup” for the overall winner.
It is the 8th season of the 15-event SHSM “tour” for Shadow Hills senior Men, consisting of nine events at Shadow Hills and six away events. There are also bonus events at Sunriver and Bandon earlier this year, and multi-day trip to Portland August 22-24. It’s not a league, but a “tour” so players and can join in for events that work for their schedule, just like the pros on the PGA tour. This year, the league had a record number of 58 players competing for the coveted “Mason Cup”. The low $100 fee covered all events plus food for the finals.
For each “tour” event the top 25 players earn SHSM points. The SHSM points are like the FedEx points on the PGA tour. As Steve explains, “that way, many of us can think like we are like the “pros” on the PGA tour but for us “we don’t need the money” and simply enjoy competitive golf and make new friends! Since friends are more important than money it adds a lot of value to our Shadow Hills membership.”
It is pretty evident why Steve is “the Commish.”
The FINAL EVENTS for the tour this year, are as follows:
- The two day trip to Portland Aug 22-24 to play reciprocal courses.
- The FINALS September 1 & 2. Open to ALL Senior men…even if you aren’t an annual member – join in the fun for $50 for the finals and it will include competitive golf and food both days. Light Hors d ’Oeuvres after day 1 and the awards steak dinner after day 2.
Those interested in joining us for the final events can contact “The Commish,” Steve Mason at:
