Traditions are great! The 26th edition of the Plaza Golf Tournament is held on Saturday, November 9. Golfers have been looking forward to it the entire year, but now the time is here: the Hans Nooter Memorial Trophy 2019 is ready for lift-off. The fun golf event will see its shotgun start at 12noon at the fantastic Tierra del Sol golf course. The format is a two-person scramble; men play from the White tees and the women from the Coral tees. Thirty percent of the combined total is the team’s handicap. Formerly the event was called the Plaza Golf Open; the name change was made to honor fun-loving Cafe the Plaza owner Hans Nooter, who passed away seven years ago.
Usually between 40 and 50 teams register for the afternoon of golf. “This tournament is all about having fun,’’ tell the long-time participants, all regulars of Café the Plaza in the Renaissance Marketplace about the event; there are prizes to win for first, second and third place teams as well as for Closest to the Pin at Holes 3, 7, 13, 15 and 17.
After playing 18 holes, the tired golfers are expected back at Café the Plaza after 5 pm for a few reviving drinks and a bite to eat. They can expect an excellent buffet before the prizes are handed out.
Registration for the Hans Nooter Memorial Trophy is possible at Tierra del Sol at [email protected] or at 586-0978.
