Golden Horseshoe Hosts 13th Millennium Golf Tournament January 7-8
Colonial Williamsburg’s Golden Horseshoe hosts the 13th annual Millennium golf tournament Jan. 7-8, 2012. The “one-time-only” event began in 2000 and was so popular it returned the following year. The tournament consists of 36 holes on the Green and Gold courses. Saturday’s round begins with a shotgun start on the Green Course at 10 a.m., and the final round Sunday begins at 10 a.m. with a shotgun start on the Gold Course.
Saturday’s format is captain’s choice, while Sunday’s format is a four-ball (two-person, best-ball) format. Handicaps will be used to determine Saturday’s pairings. Flights will be determined by Saturday’s score. Teams are composed of two amateur golfers as defined by the USGA Rules of Golf. Each team’s 36-hole score will determine the winners.
The entry fee of $410 per team includes tournament rounds and carts, practice rounds (pay cart fees only), practice balls prior to tournament rounds, tee gift, continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, awards presentation and Saturday evening buffet dinner. For information or to obtain a registration form, call 757-220-7696. Entry deadline is Jan. 2, 2012.
Special room rates are available at official Colonial Williamsburg hotels by calling 1-800-447-8679 and asking for the Millennium Golf Classic participant rate.
