If you want to have an on-course contest or a specialty hole, we will set it up for you. When the golfing day is done, we offer tabulation of all scorecards upon entry to the Willow Valley Pro Shop, according to the format you selected for your Hamilton golf tournament. aWe also offer a clubhouse reception with a 15 % discount on all prizes purchased from the Pro Shop.
On top of all of these services, you can choose to add other features to make your tournament suit your needs. The optional tournament services include: a bagpiper; beverage and / or meal tickets; customized logo balls for as low as $22 per dozen; photographer services; access to a projector and screen; proximity markers; a putting board; access to rental clubs (King Cobra brand clubs); trophies, plaques and / or other awards; and Willow Valley bag tags with player names, or whatever customized greeting you wish.
We can accommodate up to 144 golfers per tournament, and they will each get the same level of service and personal attention as if they were only in a foursome. We’re all about making sure you’re happy with your tournament, which is why we offer several formats - to make sure your day suits your needs. With a traditional start format, foursomes of golfers will tee-off in ten minute intervals. This format is available Monday through Sunday, upon request. A crossover, or split-tee, start has foursomes of golfers teeing off in ten-minute intervals from the first and tenth tee block at the same time. This tournament format is available Monday through Sunday upon advanced request and at the discretion of golf course management.
If you want to have everyone ending their games at approximately the same time, then a shotgun start is the best option for you. In this format, foursomes tee-off from separate holes all at the same time. This type of tournament is available Monday through Friday, with a morning start time of 7:00 am., or in the afternoon with a starting time of 1:00 pm. Weekend starting times are available at 1:00 pm. All shotgun tournaments are based upon the guarantee of 144 golfers. Any difference in number on the day of the event will result in the issuance of rain checks for the balance.
If you’re running a smaller tournament, but still want to have everyone finish together, then a modified shotgun start is a possible option for you. It requires a minimum of 72 golfers, and a maximum of 96. All golfers tee-off at the same time on separate holes designated by the golf course. With a modified shotgun start, the remaining space on the golf course will be made available to regular customers. Like the regular shotgun start, this type of tournament is available Monday through Friday, with a morning start time of 7:00 am., or in the afternoon with a starting time of 1:00 pm; weekend starting times are available at 1:00 pm.
