Green Tee Old Timers

There’s a new group in town!

“If you’re tired from beating yourself to death playing golf from the long blue or white tee boxes, then this new group is for you,” says spokesperson Jim Magill.

“On Monday, August 15, this new group of male golfers, The Green Tee Hackers, will be formed. This game will be for those golfers who have an established handicap of 16 and up and, due to age or infirmities, no longer can compete from the blue or white tees.”

Games played will be easy ones such as Partners Best Ball, Individual Tin Whistle and 2 Best Balls of the Foursome.

Some weeks the committee will be selecting the foursomes and on other weeks groups can pick their own members.

Entry fee will be $5, which will be divided amongst the winners.

Any golfer with an established handicap who would like to play with these duffers can do so by contacting Jim Magill at 951-237-6102 or
