Moose Madness starts today at Valley Club

Member-Guest golf tourney

    Valley Club golfers and guests are ready to tee it up for a highlight of the club’s tournament season—the 45-hole Moose Madness Men’s Member-Guest golf tourney.
    And the winners will be decided late in the afternoon of Saturday, July 13 when four days of golf boil down to the 12-team shootout settling the overall champions for the 2013 version of Moose Madness.
    Valley Club golf director Stoney Brown has 60 two-man teams teeing it up starting today, Wednesday, July 10 for the 18th annual Moose Madness.
    Last year’s finale on the North Course 386-yard No. 9 hole crowned a fitting king in 73-year-old Dick Toomey.
    Toomey won the Moose Rut shootout with his brother Jim Toomey, 66. Dick Toomey also won the first Moose Madness tournament in 1996. Second place last year went to Todd Peebler-Jimmy Crumpacker.
    Brown explained the format this way: He said, “Each team is comprised of a Valley Club member and their guest. Guests come from not only the valley but the entire country as well. Teams tee it up for a practice round on Wednesday and start the tournament on Thursday, July 11.
    “Format is round robin with 10 flights of six teams each. Each team in the flight plays a nine-hole match with the other five teams in their flight with nine points up for grabs in each match. Each team plays 18 holes Thursday, 18 holes Friday and nine Saturday.
    “After the final nine-hole match Saturday, flight winners (total points leaders) and the two wild-card winners (the 2 teams with the best totals not winning their flights) meet in 12-team shootout to determine the overall champions for the 2013 Moose Madness. Saturday evening is the awards dinner where the champions and flight winners are honored.”
