Host a Special Event
Information on Tournaments of the Range Senior League
The Range Senior Golf League is made up of nine small towns in Northeastern Minnesota. During the season each town hosts a tournament and at the end of the season we have a four-man scramble tournament before our year ending league meeting.
This is a handicap league. We have over 200 members and try to schedule at least 90 for each tournament. Each town has a member who is the organizer for that town. He is the host when the tournament is played at his course. He sets up the flights according to handicaps, provides a banquet when we are finished playing, and distributes prize money for the flights and other contest winners.
Each flight usually has ten players and prize money is awarded to the three players in each flight with the lowest scores. There is also prize money for the longest putt on a designated hole and for closest to the pin on a designated par three hole. Included in the package is a skins game where you can win money by having the lowest score on any hole.
Each player pays a $32.00 entry fee and all money after greens fees goes for the banquet and prizes.
See the Bulletin Board in the Ely Golf Course Clubhouse for sign-up sheets for the tournaments and for car-pooling to the tournaments.
