The District of West Vancouver, Golf West Vancouver and the Vancouver Golf Tour (VGT) are pleased to announce the first-ever VGT Golf West Vancouver shoot-out at Gleneagles Golf Course on May 16, 2012.
The 10-player format for the shoot-out event includes seven Golf Professionals (selected by their rankings on the VGT), James Presnail, head golf professional at Gleneagles, plus one media qualifier and one open qualifier. All 10 players will tee off on the first hole. The player with the highest score at the end of each hole will be eliminated. If there is a tie for high score on a hole a putt or chip off will determine who moves on and who goes home. Only two players will be left by the 9th hole, which will determine the Champion. The purse for the event is $1,750 with the top three competitors sharing in it.
