The Billy Smith Open (BSO) returns this year in a revised format. This year the outing will be held on August 20 at the Hidden Meadows, a par three course in Glenmont, 3 miles south of Albany. Once the approximate number of golfers is known, first tee times will be set.
This year the event will be purely a social, an opportunity for the Club as a whole to get together. There will be no fundraising involved. Players may sign up as a foursome, or come as an individual golfer and be drawn in to a foursome. Golfers will be allowed to carry only four clubs, with additional clubs allowed for $10 each. The format will be just plain ol' golf - not a scramble. Play your own ball, count your own strokes.
The Club will ask for a $30 donation per player to cover greens fees and a light lunch at the turn. Cart rental is optional. Beer and burgers will be available afterwards for an additional $5, and, of course, donations will be accepted. All proceeds in excess of what is owed to the course will be donated to the Club.Please contact Charles Colley if you are interested in playing, or have a whole foursome interested in playing! He will get out the tee times to the participants as soon as they are available.
