SHCC Senior Men Announce New Season of Events and Competition!

From Steve Mason- SHSM “Commish” 

Hello Shadow Hills Senior Men (SHSM) Golfers,

Signup for the 2023 SHSM season opening event at Shadow Hills on Friday April 7. This will be our 15th year for the group, and we are expecting another good turnout again this year. We are planning to have 15 events this year with points (9 at Shadow Hills and 6 away) plus several bonus events. Players in the group annually participate in about 10 of the 15 events on the average and only a few players participate in all 15 events.  We do a random draw to set up the groups, so it gives us all a chance to meet and golf with
other Senior Men at our wonderful Country Club.

Our events are low key, relaxing but competitive.  We will have two events per month at Shadow Hills in April, May, and June, followed by three events at Shadow Hills after July 1 until the season ends on September 1st with a season ending finals and luncheon. The six events away courses this year include events at Eugene Country Club, Tokatee and Emerald Valley plus we will have some bonus events.   The annual fee for our group is still only $100 (same as 15 years ago) or players may pay $10 per event. Away events have an additional fee. Please open the attachment for the 2023 schedule, rules, sign up procedure and a 2022 recap.


OPENING SHSM EVENT: Friday April 7: The opening event this year is a fun opening 2-Man Net Best Ball event with Stableford scoring. Players can pick their partner or get paired up if they want to enter as a single. This event will start with a 9:15 AM shotgun start followed by a required meeting after golf. It will be a great way to start the season.

APRIL 21 SHSM EVENT: This event and all remaining SHSM with points will be individual net Stableford events like previous years. Players will choose their tee choices for this event and the season when registering online at ForeTees, like we have done in the past. This event will start with tee times starting at 10:00 AM. Signups will start on April 11 for this event.

• BANDON GOLF TRIP: March 20-23: 4 Days of world class golf. Players can choose to golf 1, 2, 3 or all 4 days: Limited space is available to join the group. We will be playing three of the top 15 public golf courses in the USA (#7 Bandon Dunes, #12 Old Mcdonald, and #15 Sheep Ranch) plus Bandon Crossings (for a reduced fee). Contact Commish Steve at 541-521-6782 for more details including lodging information.
• Sunriver/Crosswater Unlimited Golf: September 25-27: 3 days of unlimited golf plus 2 nights lodging: $690/Single—$400/Double—12 Player Limit. Crosswater is rated as a top 10 course in Oregon and top 100 in the USA. Space is currently available for one more player.

Thank you to the three Senior Men on our SHSM rules committee, Ron Willis, Bob Holloway, and Jack Mattison plus a huge “Thank You” to Gary Davis and his staff for working with us to make our events well organized, fun, and enjoyable.

This should be another great season of Senior Men’s golf. Please contact me or anyone on the rules committee if you have any questions.
