October 16-19, 2019

Dear Bald Head Island Club Member:
We invite you to participate in the 2018 Shipwreck at Cape Fear, Bald Head Island Club’s annual Men’s Member-Guest Tournament. We will be accepting the first 54 teams. Please return the enclosed entry form as soon as possible to better your chances of securing a spot in the field. Last year’s field was a sell out and will no doubt fill up right away.  
The 2018 Shipwreck at Cape Fear is scheduled for Thursday, October 17th through Saturday, October 20th with complementary practice round available for Wednesday, October 16th. This year’s tournament will again feature the popular 54-hole match-around 2-man best ball format, followed by a play-off to determine the overall champions. Also, under the direction of the Handicap Committee per section (9-4bii) of the USGA handicap manual there will be only an eight-shot differential between partners. Any team with greater than an eight-stroke differential between the two partners handicaps will be reduced to within eight shots of the lower handicap player.
The fee for this year’s event will be $940 per Full/Extended Member team and $1,250 per Lifestyle/Extended Member Team. Entries will be taken via fax, e-mail, phone or in person. You will receive a confirmation letter to verify your entry. Don’t Delay!  Return the entry form to the Golf Shop, as space will be limited once the priority entry deadline passes on July 31st.
We look forward to seeing each of you at this year’s event and would like to remind each participant, you must have an established and current USGA Handicap to participate. Players must have 10 rounds posted in the last 12 months to be considered current.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 910-457-7310.
Kindest regards,
Brian Stewart, PGA
Head Golf Professional
