“Beat the Pro” Contest
As we do in San Diego, we will have a Golf Pro out on the course for our “Beat the Pro” Contest. Our Pro will be at Hole #18 ready for you to play his bet – bet the Pro NTD $300 that you can drive the ball farther than him. His ball has to be on the green to count, so if he hits off the green and you hit on the green, you beat the pro. Those who “Beat the Pro” will have their names put into a raffle which will be drawn at the Awards Banquet that evening. The winner of the drawing will receive 50% of the “Beat the Pro” contest pot, and the other 50% will be donated to the SWTest William Mann Scholarship Fund. At this year’s Beat the Pro Contest in San Diego, participants helped us raise over US $400 during the contest. Those of you who knew Bill Mann will know that Bill liked games. And, you may have heard his favorite George Bernard Shaw quote: “You don’t stop playing because you get old. You get old because you stop playing.” So, bring your NTD $300 and see if you can “Beat the Pro” for a chance to win hundreds of dollars, and contribute to the scholarship fund in memory of SWTest’s founder, Bill Mann.
Sponsored Hole Contest
Corporate Sponsors can sponsor a “hole contest” for US $275 fee or a “drinking hole” that covers tournament players drinks & snacks. We have several hole contests available for sponsorship. The Longest Drive can be held at Holes #4, #8 & #11 and Holes #3, #12 and #17 are available for Closest to the Pin. Sponsors can also sponsor a “Drinking Hole” on Hole #15 and Hole #10. These two holes have shops located at them, and the sponsor would pay for drinks & snacks for tournament players as they play through. We’ll provide “hole contest” and “drinking hole” signage, as well as recognize and thank our sponsors in the Program Guide and daily sessions. Sponsors can provide their own “Flag” or “Banner” with their company logo.

Golf Tournament Hours and Resources
The tournament time is at: 10:30 AM for a Scramble, Shotgun Format.
What’s a Scramble you ask? A scramble format is where each member of the golf group (4 players) hits their Tee shot, and then they select the best drive out of the 4, and they all hit from that spot. Then they select the best shot out of the 4, and hit from that spot on through till they finish the hole.
The Royal Golf Course opens at 9:00 a.m. if you would like to practice putting before the 10:30 a.m. tee off. The Club requires a collared shirt and slacks.
Registration at the Pro Shop patio will open at 9:45 a.m. All golfers must check in 30 minutes before tee time. Tee off is at 10:30 a.m.
