Winnetka Cup   Sat 4/17

Description: This is a Ryder Cup Event played between two groups of Mens Club members. The Winnetka Cup started in the fall of 2016. The schedule has 4 events in 2021 (after none in 2020)
   

The Oaks won the compeition in 2017, and the Elms came back and won the rain shortened 2018 events to tie the series at 1 each.

The Teams are named the Elms (captained by Brendan Lewis) and the Oaks (captained by Jim Burke). The trash talk between the captains (and the teams) continues, mostly after the rain outs in 2018 handed the Cup to the Elms (from the Elms's perspective, it was never close!)

The format is one we do not do often:

  • 9 holes of team best ball ( 2 Oaks vs. 2 Elms, best ball per hole)
  • 9 holes of Chapman alernate shot (2 Oaks and 2 Elms: both hit tee shots; bothe players hit their partners tee shot; then alternate shot by team until ball holed)
