The Kaddie Invitational - Summer 2014
Every bit as prestigious (*) as the Open, with a prize fund (**) to match the very best tournaments in golf
(*) Not nearly as prestigious
(**) Technically no prize fund
The Kaddie Invitational? What's that?
To celebrate the completion of our new tournament scoreboard app, we thought the best possible way to celebate would be to hold a tournament of our own
While we are quite happy with the app, we are looking to gauge the opinions of a wider community of golfers, and so hosting a golf tournament gives us the opportunity to put the app into use, perform a beta test and most crucially gather the feedback of the most important people of all. You!
Why an Invitational?
Well firstly it adds an element of prestige to the tournament!
However the main reason is that we want to be able to stay on top of the administration required, and so controlling the entry and knowing how many people are expected are crucial to that aspect
How will it work
The Kaddie Invitational will be a strokeplay tournament held over 3 rounds of a 9 hole par 3 course
The lowest 27 hole Net score will be the winner of the inaugural Kaddie Invitational
Why par 3?
Mainly because we appreciate that people have busy schedules, and it is a big ask to take 3 (or more) consecutive days for full 18 holes, we can fit 3 rounds of the short course in the same day.
Also because, par 3 golf is a lot of fun, but still very demanding
Ok, I'm convinced, I'll be there
Whoa there cowboy!
As the name suggests, this is an invitational tournament. You need an invite from Kaddie in order to compete
So how do I get an invite?
Well the good news is that there are still slots available. Contact us and let us know you're interested in competing
Slots are limited, so be sure and register early and we will get back to you
How do I increase my chances?
As outlined above, the Kaddie invitational is partly an excuse to gather feedback on our app.
In order to compete you will need a fully charged smartphone with internet access
Also, in order to combat any excuses of banditry, we need 3 recent scorecards entered into Kaddie so we can determine a starting Handikap for you
Where is it?
The Kaddie Invitational will take place at Hobbs Cross Golf Centre, near Epping in Essex
We shall be playing on the 9 hole par 3 Valley course
Saturday 16th August. Keep it free!
The first round will tee off around 10am, with the final round likely finishing around 4.
How much does it cost?
Just the cost of getting there
