casa de campo golfFrom the 18th to the 22nd of April 2012, the fiercely competitive and super exciting “Casa de Campo Spring Shootout” golf tournament, which puts players on the spot by forcing the finalists to compete 1 on 1 to be crowned the overall champion, was successfully celebrated on Casa de Campo’s 3 Pete Dye designed golf courses; the Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore and Links.

casa de campo golfFor the competition, which was played over 3 days, the more than 130 Casa de Campo golfers were divided into 10 “flights” for the men and 6 “flights” for the ladies.

[A “flight” is a term for a division of golfers within a golf tournament. Each “flight,” or division, consists of golfers of roughly similar skills (determined by handicaps). – I had to google that!]

And so across the 3 days, all competitors played 1 round on each of the 3 golf courses (3 rounds / 54 holes in total) and following the final round rather than the scores being tallied to announce the winners – the scores were tallied to determine the finalists – who then went head to head for the final SHOOTOUT!

The men’s gross division finalists played on the first three holes of the course and the men’s net division winners played on holes #4, 5 & 6, whilst the ladies net division winners played on  holes #5, 6 & 7 and the ladies gross division winners played hole #6, 7 & 8.

As each hole was played, more and more of the finalists were eliminated (with growing anticipation and excitement) until on the 3rd hole a winner from each group was declared – to become the 4 finalists, who, with everyone watching and cheering them on played the final SHOOTOUT on hole #9  and the overall men’s and ladies champions were proclaimed!

Congratulations to Gary Surdyke and Brigitte Groetzschel!
