Shadow Hills Senior Men’s Tour 2018
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.
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.
The 10th season starts on April 6th, and includes a 15-event SHSM “tour” exclusively for Shadow Hills Senior Men, consisting of nine events at Shadow Hills and six away events. There are also bonus events at Sunriver and Willamette Valley Country Club. A multi-day trip to Portland is also in the planning stages. 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. Last year, the league had a record number of 59 players competing for the coveted “Mason Cup”. The low $100 fee covers all events plus food after five of the rounds including a steak dinner after the finals for the finals on September 7. Away events at Emerald Valley, Tokatee and Sunriver have an added fee.
For each “tour” event, the top 25 players earn SHSM points and the top 25% of field earn golf shop credit. Last year the “tour” paid out $4,690 worth of golf shop credit to the guys! Players also have the option of entering the $5 cash “honey pot” to win, along with bragging rights! Simply put, the group is a lot of fun, with the added bonus of potential rewards!
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 making new friends! Since friends are more important than money it adds a lot of value to our Shadow Hills membership.”
