We are in the CONCEPT STAGE and looking for your input!
We are working on a new Gross Only event series or “gathering”. This is not meant to compete with the already fantastic events in Central Oregon including the COGT, the Winter Series and others, but is instead to offer an additional level of competition for those who wish to compete in gross only events. to Central Oregon golf. The goal is not 100-player fields, the goal is a smaller group with a more challenging mindset, we realize that limits the number of potential participants.
Currently we are in an “idea” phase and we welcome all ideas. Please feel free to reach out with positive, negative and all ideas pertaining to this potential new series of golf.
Ideas we are working on.

- Low cost (Negotiated Green fees plus $20)
- 100% payback (Top Stick receives $0 profit from entries or green fees)
- Smaller percentage of $ winners (20% of field)
