TAUC Annual Union-Made Golf Tournament - 5/17/18 - 12:30 PM - 5:00 PM - Hammock Course - - Ocean Reef Club
TAUC's Golf Committee has elected to play a scramble format.

1. The entry for the 2018 TAUC Union-Made Golf Tournament is $190.00 per person, which includes green fees, cart fees, refreshments and a boxed lunch.

2. The Golf Committee will assign all foursomes. Since we will be allowed a "shotgun" start at 12:30 pm SHARP, it is extremely important that all participants be at the course no later than 30 minutes prior to tee-off. Players need to check in at the Pro Shop to locate their assigned foursomes.

3. As golf clubs go, the Ocean Reef Club’s traditions go back more than half a century to 1955, when the first 9-hole course opened. Today the Club boasts two championship 18-hole courses – a rarity in the Florida Keys even among standard golf clubs. Ocean Reef Club's courses, designed originally by Bob Von Hagge and Bruce Devlin in 1969, are in excellent condition.

4. Prizes will be awarded to members of the winning foursome, 1st and 2nd runner-up foursomes and most honest foursome. In the event of a tie, scorecards will be compared as in match play, starting with a randomly selected hole. Individual prizes will also be awarded for various skills competitions.

5. Rental clubs are available for $60.00 plus tax. Golfers are responsible for their own rental club payments and golf shop merchandise.

Golf Dress Code: Golf courses and Driving Range require collared shirts for men and appropriate golfing shorts (no cargo or athletic shorts). Sleeveless golf blouses with collars are permissible for ladies as is other appropriate golf attire. Golf shoes must have non-metal spikes and shirt tails must be tucked in at all times.

Golfers must have proper identification on your golf clubs upon hotel check-in. This will help the bell staff to readily locate your clubs.
