Northwest Hickory Players

2017 COW Cup – California vs Oregon & Washington

October 21 & 22, 2017
Centennial Golf Club, Medford, Oregon

Hickory players representing Oregon, Washington, and California are needed for an old fashioned duel for the COW Bell!  In the tradition of the Ryder Cup, the team from California is matched against the team from Oregon and Washington.  The California team took the Bell in 2016 in a tightly fought match.  It’s Northwest’s turn to win the Bell back in 2017!  Come join us for a fun filled weekend in beautiful Rogue Valley. 

SATURDAY Oct 21st – 11:00
 — Chapman format —

Teams of two hit tee shots, and then play second shots using their partner’s tee shot location. After both players second shots, the team must select one ball location from which to complete the hole using alternate shot format.

SUNDAY Oct 22nd – 9:00
— Fourball & Singles Combined format —

Two teams of two players compete directly against each other. Each golfer plays their own ball throughout the round, such that four balls are in play. A team’s number of strokes for a given hole is that of the lower scoring team member.

A Singles match of one vs one is run concurrently with an opponent from the Fourball match.

Surrounded by the picturesque Rogue Valley and built on a 100 year old pear orchard, Centennial Golf Club features spectacular views.  A newer, but Golden Era inspired design, the course is very walkable with wide generous fairways and run-up options surrounding many of the greens.  The green tees measure about 5,700 yards and the forward red tees around 5,200.

From the Architect John Fought:

“The design at Centennial was inspired by the classic designs from the Golden Age of golf course architecture when such geniuses as Donald Ross, Alistair Mackenzie and AW Tillinghast were creating their master works.”

Food & Drinks

The Centennial Grille will be open both days till 7 pm.  An expansive paved stone covered patio area that overlooks the 18th green makes for a pleasant outdoor dining experience.
