Pittsburgh National’s Wide Open Swat meets every Monday morning. Designed to be both competitive and fun for all skill levels and golfing abilities. Tee times start at 9:30. There is a $9.00 entry, and payout will be for most points on the front, back and total, one third of the pot for each. You don’t need a partner to sign up, some weeks the competition will be individual, some weeks teams will usually be two man blind partner teams, so come on out for the camaraderie and to meet new people. Scoring will use the Stableford system, which assigns points for bogies pars and birdies.
There are also prizes for greenies and skins. Entry into these is optional; the cost is $4.00 for greenies and $2.00 for skins. Cost for green fees and cart is $25.00. Sign up by calling the pro shop before 5:00 Sunday evening.
Do I need a handicap? No. We will average your Stableford points each week to create a quota of points.
What tees will I play from? You can choose the tees you normally play from, but you will have to play from the same tees each week. You must be 70 to play from the forward tees. Women play from the women’s tees.
What’s a blind partner? To make it fair for everyone, partners will be drawn out of a hat. You may not be playing with the person that ultimately becomes your partner.
What’s Stableford? Here at Pittsburgh National, you get one point for a bogie, two points for a par, and three points for a birdie. So far we haven’t had an issue with eagles, but if you have one, we sure hope you entered the skins!!
