Rivers Edge Round Robin results are all but in..We have a few matches remaining to break ties however the bulk of the competition has concluded. With the event running the majority of March we all know weather forecasts were not friendly therefore the deadline was extended til April 15th to allow all matches to be completed. Members and Platinum cardholders played their matches on regular scheduled league days; Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with the occasional match being rescheduled by the opponents themselves due to weather related issues.
The Round Robin had a total of 27 total competitors competing in three divisions broken down by handicaps.
The play of the tournament is match play with handicap. The lower handicap group has a handicap range of 12 (lowest handicap is 5 the highest is 17). Therefore this group will play with 90% of their handicaps. The middle handicap group has a handicap range of 5 (lowest handicap is 18, the highest is 23). Therefore this group will play at 100% of their handicap. The highest handicap group has a handicap range of 12 (lowest handicap is 24 the highest is 36). Therefore this group will play with 90% of their handicaps. The USGA recommends that for every 8 strokes of difference in handicap a 10% reduction of handicaps is taken from all players.
The top four places in each division will be paid out. Each player will receive a gift card to River Edge Golf Club that may be redeemed in the Golf Shop or Double Eagle Grille. Following is the breakdown of prize money per division. Players may pick up their gift cards in the golf shop beginning today as long as their tiebreaker has concluded.

Congratulations to those who placed in the top four but most importantly to all competitors who competed in the 2018 Round Robin Tournament. As mentioned weather was a major hurdle to overcome in the month of March. Participants displayed much patience and perseverance to finish the competition, especially those who placed in the money!
A special thank you to our tournament committee; Bruce Miller, Jeff Keck, Jason Monahan and Sebastian Beecroft. A notable mention to Bob Grundy who survived in organizing all matches and pairings for the entire tournament. Be sure when you see Bob in the Double Eagle Grille to thank him..if memory serves me correct his thanks is best served on the rocks with Absolute and tonic!!!
