Still bummed out by the U.S. Ryder Cup team’s collapse against the Europeans at Chicago’s Medinah Golf Club? You can’t get a mulligan for Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson or Steve Stricker – but you can write your own “Ryder Cup history” and have fun doing it at Hidden Valley Golf Club
The club, located west of Columbia
off U.S. 231 near Gaston
, will stage a two-day Ryder Cup-style competition, Oct. 20-21 (Saturday-Sunday). Players will be slotted onto teams during the Oct. 13 (Saturday) team selection party, which begins at 7 p.m. at the club and will include music, heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks, and college football on big-screen TVs.
The format will consist of a first day of two-man teams competing in captain’s choice, best ball and alternate shot (nine holes each), followed by a second day of singles match play (18 holes). Teams will consist of 12-14 players each depending on participation.
Entry fees of $50 for tournament club members and $70 for non-members will cover the selection party and golf for both days of the tournament. Deadline is Oct. 11. For information or to register, call (803) 794-8087. For more information, go to www.hvgolf.com
