DOG RACE 2017—Sign up Today
Kirksville Country Club is pleased to host Red, White and Blue DOG RACE on July 4 at 3:00 PM. It is designed for members of Kirksville Country Club only (dependent children 18 and older are granted an exception). It is a two-person team event (the total of the handicaps should be in the range of 20 to 30). Any team with a low handicap player must therefore have a high handicap player, or a team could be composed of two players of equal strength as long as their combined handicap is within the prescribed range. Mixed gender teams are encouraged. All players will use the same tees regardless of age, handicap or gender. Each team member is obligated to wager $21 on his or her own team and the club has already put $7 in each category–Win, Place and Show. You may place additional wagers on your team or any team.
This is an alternate shot event. One member of the team tees off; the second member shoots the second shot, and so on. The rules of golf apply. All shots alternate, including putts and chip offs. Each member of the team is under extreme tremendous pressure. Four putts are common. The winning score on the last hole has varied from Birdie (least common) to DOUBLE BOGEY (most common)!
Winning the hole actually means nothing, but losing the hole is instant oblivion, the team is done for the day! If two or more teams perform equally poorly, there is a chip off or pitch off or putt off depending on the discretion of the Race official whose rulings are always final and non contestable. Multiple teams may be eliminated on the first few holes. Last year we started with three groups with only two teams from each group teeing off on 15 with two teams eliminated to reach 16. There will be four teams starting 16, the first team eliminated is out of the money (three teams left and all joking around has ceased), the next team eliminated wins the SHOW bet (two teams left and the tension is unbearable, yipps, shanks and complete whiffs on putts are not unheard of!), the last team eliminated wins the PLACE bet, and the non eliminated team wins the WIN bet. Betting on this event is done in the usual pari-mutuel horse race fashion. Payoff will be made immediately following the race and bets can be placed beginning at 1:00. You are responsible to insure that your betting ticket matches the bet requested.
Bettors on the winning team get all of the win pot; and if they wager on place and show, half the Place pot, and a third of the Show pot while the Place bettors get half the Place pot and a third of the Show pot, and the Show bettors get only a third of the Show Pot.
What should you do? Play if you can. If not, come out, place a bet, cheer your team to victory, and collect your winnings. Who should you bet on (typically last years winner is eliminated on the first hole of the current year!)? Should you bet on the most balanced team, the thoroughbred team with the lowest combined handicap, a mixed breed team with high and low handicaps, a team of relative pups or a team of grizzled veterans kind of long in the snout and smell bad? Who knows? It seems that the long shots always come through. ‘Course all these dogs are long shots anyway.
