The  Oktoberfest Golf Tournament has been a tradition at our club since the very first year we opened, 1999.  It has grown to be the favorite among golfers in the area.  Golfers come from all over the Capital-Saratoga region to play in it. It is a flighted by team handicap.  The format is a 4-Player Scramble. The last few were years were all sell outs at 144 and broke down into 4 divisions.  Two Holes in Ones have been made over the years in Oktoberfest, the latest in 2010 first when the very first shot out on #9 near the Clubhouse and it went in.  That was made by Lee Gladd on 10/10/10.    The first was made by Randy Redwine on 10/7/01. 


Oktoberfest is an all-inclusive day starting with a Continental Breakfast, a Registration gift at check in, lunch on the turn and by then it's Noon and the kegs of German and Domestic beers are tapped and soda is out.  The BBQ is quite a spread with steak, chicken, many side dishes of both traditional and German dishes and there's always dessert. 


During the BBQ is when we run our Chipping and Putting Contests.  There is something to do for a few hours, and the lines for food are not bad because folks are lined up for the contests too.  There's a raffle that we all love and many winners.    Lots of fun, Lots of prizes it's always a great day.  Come join us!
