Dalhousie Golf Club hosts OB Sports Invitational Cup Matches
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. — Dalhousie Golf Club is set to host the OB Sports Invitational Cup Matches September 27 – 29, 2007. The OB Sports Invitational Cup Matches are the gathering for all of OB Sports Golf Management’s private facilities and additional clubs by special invitation. The event creates an opportunity for the members of OB Sports-managed facilities to enjoy the other facilities in the OB network and to interact socially with other club members in a fun, yet competitive golf environment.
Participating clubs in the 2007 OB Invitational Cup Matches include: Dalhousie Golf Club – Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Winchester Country Club – Auburn, California (2006 Host Venue); Hunters Point Golf & Country Club – Nampa, Idaho; Talking Rock – Prescott, Arizona; Somerby Golf Club – Rochester, MN (2005 Host Venue); Portmarnock – Ireland; Longbow Golf Club – Mesa, AZ and Horseshoe Bend Country Club – Roswell, GA
The format for the event is a “Match Around” where all players will compete in 45 holes of two-person, net best-ball matches in two flights. A cumulative point total scored by each team will determine the flight winner and a grand finale ‘horse race’ between flight winners will produce the team champion. Last year the team from Portmarnock, Ireland captured “the OB Cup” at the matches held at Winchester Country Club in Auburn, California.
“We are all honored and excited to bring the OB Sports Invitational Cup matches to Cape Girardeau, MO, and Dalhousie Golf Club,” stated golf course owner and managing member Cord Dombrowski. “We’ve greatly enjoyed this event as participants (the 2005 OB Cup winners I might add), and we can’t wait to be the host of this prestigious international event.”
