Pinewild Country Club of Pinehurst offers two flavors of couples golf followed by a dinner over several months. The exact times and specifics are posted on the bulletin board two weeks prior to each event. A small entry fee per couple is collected for prize money (Golf Shop Credit) with the lucky winners announced during dinner.
Twilight Golf is designed to be a mixer and a “get to know folks” event. Sign-up and play as couples, with fun being the key word as the coordinators configure teams of 4 couples. Play is contested over nine holes, with generally some form of “scramble” format.
The second event is called Par Chasers where the game is eighteen holes of “regular” golf. Sign-up for this event is by team (2 couples). The game is generally some form of better-ball competition to generate a team score. Full handicaps are used thus a USGA handicap is required to participate. Again following the golf event we have refreshments and dinner for all those who worked up an appetite on the course.
This game is limited to 80 players, with tee times in both the morning and afternoon, this to better accommodate peoples schedules. Dinner follows golf starting at 6:00PM with cocktails, and participants choosing between different entrées, or sometimes a buffet dinner. The sign-up is posted approximately two weeks prior to the event, please sign-up as a four-person “team” [two couples] and indicate your entrée choice.
Please note, a maximum USGA Handicaps will apply.
The dates for 2021 are as follows…March 28th, April 18th, May 23rd, June 13th, July 18th, August 15th, September 19th and October 17th.
