Here at River Valley we like to wrap up of the golf season the best way we know how, a month of tournaments. That’s right, every Sunday in October we host our annual Chilli Opens. Due to popular demand, we have also decided to prepare more tournaments into November if weather allows us to continue the fun! Each week there will be a different 4 person format with a homemade chili dinner following. To increase the fun of these tournaments, we also add hole contests each week. We would like to invite everyone to get their teams together and sign up for one or all of these great outings. To help with the check-in process we are asking that you prepay for your whole team when you sign up. We look forward to having you all out soon to join in the fun!
Every Sunday in October
11AM Shotgun Start
Payment taken at sign up
Registration will be capped at first 36 prepaid teams!
10/1/2023 – Lone Ball Scramble
10/8/2023 – Devils 666
10/15/2023 – 4 Club Scramble
10/22/2023 – Misery & Bliss
10/29/2023 – 8″ Cup Scramble
Each hole will have 1 team member playing their own ball while the others play a 3-person scramble. The 3-person scramble players will each hit, pick the best shot, and hit again from there. The single player each hole will be rotated based on how names are entered on the scorecard. Both scores are added together to make the day a double par round.
This is a 4-person event where 6 holes are played as a scramble, 6 holes as a best score, and 6 holes of alternate shot. In a Scramble format each person will tee off and you will select the best shot. Continue this process until the ball is holed. In a Best Score format everyone will play their own ball. The team will record the best score. In our Alternate Shot format you will pair up, so you will have 2-twosomes. All players will tee off, and the separate 2-somes will alternate from the chosen tee shot. The best 2-some score will be used for the team score.
This format is a fun twist on a 4-person scramble. The round is played like a regular scramble, but the twist is that each player must only use 3 clubs and their putter for the entire round. Clubs cannot be shared within the team, and must be the only clubs in your bag at the start of the round. This fun format gets you thinking about your best clubs and calls for some strategy within your team!
This is a 4-person scramble with a twist on the course setup. Everyone on the team will tee off and you will select the best shot. The team plays from this spot, and this process is continued each stroke until the ball is holed. Our Front 9 will be The Bliss side of the course and, our Back 9 will be The Misery side of the course! Our Bliss side will consist of everyone playing from the Forward Tees and we will do some fun things to make for easy pins. Our Misery side is the opposite with some very difficult pins and everyone will be playing from the Yellow Tees. Seniors (65+) and Ladies will hit from the Black tees on the Misery side.
This is another 4-person scramble with a BIG twist on the course. Everyone on the team will tee off and you will select the best shot. The team plays from this spot, and the process is continued each stroke until the ball is holed. On the greens, we will have 8” cups to aid in some lower scores.
Unfortunately we have decided to not have a Bonus Chilli Open this year. With the weather outlook showing rain that weekend, we have decided to end on a warm note this year. Hopefully we can work in an additional Chilli Open into our season next year! Thank you all so much for signing up for our Chilli Opens this season!
