With a contest on every hole, golfers will have lots of chances to win excellent prizes including one million dollars and/or a new vehicle! Registration fees are $120 per player or $475 per member team. Nonmembers may register a team for $500. The fee includes green fees, 2 mulligans, cart, breakfast, lunch by Walk-On’s, snacks, water, powerade and goodie bag with sponsored items and the chance to win lots of prizes! To be eligible for your team to win the Prizes on Every Hole – including name-brand wedges, drivers, putters, set of irons, golf balls & golf bags – a Super Pass will be available at check in for $120 per team. Please note player/team registration is only confirmed when payment is received.

Yes! We will pair you up with other players.

We’ll provide breakfast by Shipley’s and Hewitt IGA, lunch by Walk-On’s, bottled water snacks and powerade including Bush’s tender rolls before. Snacks/beverages will be available on the course at various interactive hole sponsor booths, and Cottonwood Creek Golf Course also has drinks available through purchase at the clubhouse bar and through the beer cart on the course.

What is a Super Pass?

The Super Pass enables teams to be eligible to play in all contests throughout the tournament. We’ve found that teams enjoy paying for everything all at once, and doing so also speeds up play. The Super Pass is $120 for a team of 4 and is available for sale online and at check-in the day of the tournament.

Prizes are awarded to 1st, 8th, 14th and 20th place teams.
