Hell Day Tournament
Today is the the last tournament of the year for my men’s association, which I’ve been president now for SIX years. For the last tournament we trick the course out as crazy as possible and call the tournament “Hell Day.” I blogged about this format before, so see this link for more info on Hell Day.
Retiring as Mr. President
For six years I’ve run my men’s association, built a league web site, posted the scores, arranged the tournaments, updated handicaps, listened to whining and griping about everything imaginable, fielded calls at midnight from players wondering why their birdie on #13 didn’t hold up for a skin. For six years I’ve also had the pleasure of playing with, and meeting many very cool people and establishing lifelong friendships. During that six year span I managed to win a club championship, which is the proudest moment in my humble amateur golf career.
I became president of the club in 2005 because I wanted to improve it, and turn it into a classy and enjoyable league. I did just that.
Today is my last day as president. I’m hanging it up after six years. It is time for someone else to pick up the reigns.
My job is done.
