North Shore Country Club
500 Shore Rd.
Glen Head, NY 11545
It’s back! Join us as we return to the 1916 Seth Raynor and CB MacDonald designed, North Shore Country Club for a day of golf and frivolity at this classic Long Island course.
As always, all proceeds from The Madison Ave. Open will benefit the AICP Foundation, a cause devoted to promoting diversity initiatives in the commercial production industry.
This year we are using two fun formats to allow for golfers of all levels to enjoy the day.
If you enjoy the social camaraderie of Scramble, there will be a field of like-minded golfers; and if it’s a Best Ball challenge you are looking for, join up with your favorite partner as we will play a more competitive Best Ball Tournament.
The day will be packed with fun and games, including a pre-tournament putting contest, a hole-in-one contest, longest drive, closest to the pin and a birdie contest, with winners walking away with bragging rights and prizes. Guests will also be able to bid on a bevy of fantastic items up for auction during the post-round cocktail hour.
|11:30am - 3:30pm||BBQ Lunch On The Course|
|4:30pm - 6pm||Post-round Reception/Cocktail Hour+|
Each player will choose to play either in the “Best Ball” or “Scramble” competition.
All players in the foursome must play the same competition (Best Ball or Scramble) and within each foursome, there will be 2 teams of two competing in the overall tournaments within the foursomes.
Best Ball – For the Glory of Competition
Using 90% handicaps, the teammates in the twosome will play their own golf balls throughout and the lower score between them on each hole counts as the team score. The max handicap a player can carry in Best Ball is 20.
Scramble – For the Fun of It
Each player in the team of two hits a tee shot on each hole, the best shot is selected, then both players play from that best shot. The players continue selecting the best shot until one player hits the ball into the hole. (This format is perfect for beginners—no handicap required).
Special Contests Throughout the Course Will Include:
• Closest to the Pin
• Longest Drive
• Hole in One Contest
• Birdie Contest
