MDCC Golf Tournament Rules and Format
We will be playing:
A SCRAMBLE format. Each player will tee off, the group then selects a single ball to play from; each places a ball within 1 club length of the chosen tee shot. Each team member hits their next shot from the chosen spot – this procedure is followed on every shot for the remainder of the hole, including putts. Shots from the rough must be played from the rough, sand from the sand, etc…. Record your team score on the official scorecard beginning with your starting hole. Ties are broken by scorecard playoff – lowest handicap hole.
A SHOTGUN start at 8:00 AM.
Prizes will be awarded for the top Women’s Foursomes, Men’s Foursomes, and Mixed Foursomes.
COVID-19 Precautions and Modifications
Alongside Fossil Trace’s precautions that are in accordance with Jefferson County and Colorado State Mandates, it is TBD if MDCC will be hosting a gathering for lunch. If we are unable to host a lunch gathering there will be a hospitality location where you can pick up your meals and check-in (this space will be outside and limited to 30 people at a time with social distancing). Please note, you can choose to share a cart or use a cart as a single person. Please call Marsena (Mars) Holsopple, Development Director at 303-867-4605 or email her at Mars@MariaDroste.org with any additional questions.

2021 Annual Sponsorship Opportunities
As COVID-19 has transformed our world and how we are able to show up in the community we have pivoted from our original Sponsorship Opportunities to meet emerging needs.
We want to ensure that while you support mental health access in our community, we are supporting your companies and organizations with the same due diligence. If there is any way we can improve this opportunity for you, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

By the numbers:
Game Explanations, Cost to Play, and Prizes
Please note: volunteers will not be assisting with game play (except at hole 11 (hole in one) and the putting green). Golfers must move their markers where applicable. At the end of the day, Fossil Trace staff will collect the markers to determine each hole’s winner.
Hole #4: Longest Putt – Prize: $25 gift card to Fossil Trace (play included in foursomes – no purchase necessary)
This hole is for the longest putt. The ball has to be on the green to count and not on the fringe. The golfer who makes the longest putt will write their name on the marker provided by the golf course and will stick the marker in the green where the putt was made from. Any golfer that comes after and makes a longer putt will then put their name on the marker and mark where they putted from. This is the new longest putt until someone else beats it. If no one else can make a longer putt, then the last name on the marker is the winner.
Hole #6: Men’s Longest Drive – Prize: Sleeve of golf balls and $25 Fossil Trace gift card (play included in foursomes – no purchase necessary)
The object is to be the man to hit the longest drive during the course of play. In order to win the contest, a golfer’s shot must be in the fairway when it comes to rest. A marker is provided by the golf course to mark the distance of the longest drive and identify the winner. When a player beats the marker, the player will place a marker at his spot.
Putting Green: Putting Contest – $15 – Prize: Sleeve of golf balls and $25 Fossil Trace gift card
The object is to be the golfer that gets closest to the hole for the day. Players will use a marker to note the closest putt to the hole and those following will have to try to beat it. When a player beats the marker, the volunteer will note the team and player’s name and the player will place a marker at their spot.
Hole #11: Hole in One – $10,000 prize
The object of a Hole in One is to be the person who only takes one shot to get it in the hole. If they don’t, game over! Easy as pie! Volunteers will note the player who gets a hole in one and will inform players if more than one player has gotten a hole in one.
Hole #12: Women’s Longest Drive – Prize: tray and coasters (play included in foursomes – no purchase necessary)
The object is to be the woman to hit the longest drive during the course of play. In order to win the contest, a golfer’s shot must be in the fairway when it comes to rest. A marker is provided by the golf course to mark the distance of the longest drive and identify the winner. When a player beats the marker, the player will place a marker at her spot.
Hole #16: Closest to the Pin (Men’s and Women’s) – Prize: $25 gift card to Fossil Trace to each (play included in foursomes – no purchase necessary)
The object is to be the man or woman that hits the ball closest to the hole for the day. A marker will be provided by the golf course for golfers to identify the closest shot to the hole. When a player beats the marker, the player will place a marker at his spot.
Hole #18: Buy a Drive – $20 – No Prize
Players pay to have their drive placed in a very good spot, i.e. long, straight, and centered on the fairway. That’s all that is required of the game leader at this hole! Only one member of a team needs to purchase the drive. All teams must purchase their drives before anyone tees off.
