The Avajaiskisa is a great way to start the season. The "scramble" format is perfect for the occasion, the scramble format rewards your best shots while reducing the damage done by any early season mis-hits. The fact that it is played in teams helps you to reconnect with some old friends or make some new friends. The shotgun start and the meal which follows the golf makes it a great social occasion for the members as everyone begins and ends at the same time. This is one of the few times when large groups of Kytäjä members get together!
This weekend also signals the beginning of many other 2012 competitions. The Avajaiskisa is the first event of the new Kytäjä Club Tour. The mens eclectic begins on Sunday, and so does the 2012 kuukausikilpailu... why not use your kuukausikilpailu score to start off your Eclectic!
Earlier this week we also opened the entry list for the five matchplay competitions which we will run in 2012. Please sign up with the caddiemaster for the ones which interest you!
Its also great to see the course waking up from the winter slumber. The greens are getting better day-by-day and starting from Monday we will also be able to play the North West course. It will be great to have two excellent courses to choose from once again.
Enjoy the Avajaiskisa!
P.S. - I can see from the statistics for this website that many people are visiting this page... but nobody has ever left a comment. I wonder if anyone actually reads this? Let's test that out... I have a dozen new "Taylormade TP Red Tour Preferred" golf balls in the back of my car - the first 4 people who come and inform me on Saturday that they have read this blog will each receive a box of three of those golf balls.
