  • UPDATES FOR 2024:
    1. This is a 54-hole tourney with a cut after 36 holes. All scoring is Gross. Your competitive handicaps are used only to place you in a division. We have eliminated the Sunday championship reset for all non-Open divisions. The 2-year test ended in 2021.
    2. Entry is $179 thru June 1; $189 till July 20; $199 after that point.
    3. Friday courses are Mill Creek North and South, Avalon Buhl and Avalon Squaw Creek. Saturday courses are Tippecanoe CC, Trumbull CC, Avalon Lakes, Pine Lakes and Salem Hills. (If you play Squaw or Buhl on Friday, you will play Pine Lakes or Salem Hills on Saturday.) We will announce course assignments after July 1.
    4. New players to Greatest (and those who have not played in last 3 years) must show a handicap from structured 2023/24 golf such as a regular league, money game, travel group or tourney play where witnessed, competitive scores are kept. (5 scores minimum). Not applicable are handicaps derived largely from non-competitive play where proof of those scores is unverifiable. Players in such situations are invited to email to explain playing history.
    5. Your handicap at your home course is the preferred method to determine your division. For our golfers with indexes, you are welcome to calculate your index against your Day 1 course to choose your division. If you don't know what that means, don’t worry about it. Just sign up with your league handicap and live life to your fullest.
    6. Handicap verifications begin July 15 and continue thru the event. Your Aug. 1 handicap is your level for the tourney. Players are encouraged and invited to change their division through July 25 if they find their skill level has adjusted since they registered. Email us at
