2022 Golfer Confirmation Information

18th ANNUAL FRED’S FOOTSTEPS GOLF FUN DAY

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2022

 

First and foremost, we would like to thank you for your generous support of Fred’s Footsteps! We greatly appreciate that you have chosen to champion our mission and the families we serve.

 

Schedule of Activities

 

 

The locker rooms are available for your use.

Please keep all valuables with you or locked in your car.

 

Reception Information

The reception format will be casual, similar to last year’s. However, the schedule of activities is a bit earlier so that we can accommodate those diehard Eagles fans who have tickets to attend the first home opener that night. GO EAGLES!

 

  • The reception will take place on the terrace at Philadelphia Country Club
  • Cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served
  • A brief program, including Live Auction, will take place on the terrace as well

 

 

Scoring & Format

The Golf Fun Day is played on two, 18-hole courses: the SPRING MILL Course at Philadelphia Country Club and the Gulph Mills Golf Course.

Locker rooms will be available for your use, but we recommend locking ALL valuables in your car.

Scorecards can be found on your golf carts with details of your starting course and hole.

The scoring system for the event will be a SHAMBLE – One team score is recorded for the foursome.  It works like this:

  1. Each member of the team drives from every tee.
  2. The team of golfers selects the one best drive among them after teeing off, then all four play their own golf balls from that position into the hole.
  3. Each team member’s drive must be used a minimum of two times. Use the scorecard to record whose drive has been used for each hole.
  4. The team’s gross score is recorded on the scorecard. (In the case of a threesome, one player is designated per hole to play the extra ball.)

We kindly ask that to keep pace with the group ahead; players who are out of the hole pick up their ball.

Please turn in your COMPLETED scorecard at the Pro Shop, immediately following play.

CapTech PinPoint Challenge™

CapTech is hosting a next-generation closest-to-pin experience at this year’s tournament. The PinPoint Challenge does away with measuring tapes, transforming a traditional closest-to-pin event into an engaging new experience that measures a shot digitally. CapTech will demonstrate how the PinPoint Challenge works:

  • Tracks, locates, and measures shots at a glance
  • Displays real-time leaderboards and maps
  • Uses augmented reality to show ball trajectory and where balls have landed
  • Captures analytics

Participants who opt in will have the opportunity to engage in this competition on a Par 3 hole during the tournament.

 

 

Gratuities

Philadelphia Country Club and Gulph Mills Golf Course are non-tipping facilities, except for caddies. Please plan to tip your caddies.
