Simsbury Farm Men’s Club Annual Sign-Up:

I hope everyone is staying warm this winter and having a great start to 2024. The good news is that Punxsutawney Phil has forecasted an early spring.  With the chance of an early spring, it is time to kick off the registration process for the 2024 SFMC golf season.

The tournament committee has met several times already to start putting together a robust schedule for 2024. Everything will be finalized and communicated by our spring meeting tentatively scheduled for Sunday, March 24th (place & time TBD).

Our annual membership fee for 2024 will be $135 per member, up $10 from last year to mostly offset general inflation, GHIN fee increase of $6 per member which went into place last year, and $2,000 annual cost of Unknown Golf.

The 2024 membership includes:
Preferred/reserved tee times every weekend for all Men’s Club events
Entrance into the hole-in-one contest ($500 annual H-I-O skin pool)
Entry into the Season Long Points Race, with $2,000 or more paid out to 10% of the total membership based on the most Points accumulated for Individual Low Net performance against the field over 12 Race events.

Other items on the Form:
You can also sign up for the Match Play Classic for an additional $20 (same as last year). This is a season-long single elimination event with a match once a month, where you schedule your own tee time with an opponent you get paired up against within flights of 16.   Last year we had 96 members in 6 flights.

The last item on the form, but most importantly you can contribute to the Reg Zurinskas Scholarship Fund.  Many of you have been very generous over the years. This has allowed us to give two deserving Simsbury High graduates a nice scholarship each year. So I thank you in advance for your contribution to this year’s seniors.

We have not finalized the full calendar but I would like to let you know some of the tentative dates:
Warm-up event – Best 15 holes –  Sat. April 6th
4-Man Shot-gun Opening Event – Sat. April 13th
Senior Championship (Peter Reynolds defending champ) – Weekend of June 23rd
Club Championship (Dave Croke defending Champ) – Weekend of August 24th

Please look for a survey to be out later this month. There are a few issues the Board would like your feedback on before we finalize things for 2024.

Please mark Sunday, March 24th on your calendar for the spring kickoff meeting (place & time TBD) where we will go over the upcoming season.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in March or on the course this April.
