Pairings are arranged by the chairwomen for that week. The game changes every week as planned by the Gateway Golf & Country Club Ladies' Association, and posted in a booklet. These games are a great way for ladies to meet and play with each other. A shotgun is scheduled every Thursday at 8:30 a.m. We also have a 9-Hole league that will go out in a shotgun around 11:00 a.m. This enables us to enjoy a lively and delicious luncheon after 18 holes of golf.

MEMBER-MEMBER
The season's first major! The event is flighted and consists of four nine-hole matches played over two days. The format for the matches is: better ball, scramble, alternate shot, and, finally, a second better ball. Winners from all flights then participate in a "shootout." Club Members are encouraged to take golf carts out on the course to observe the shootout and congratulate the eventual champions. The event ends with and special awards presentation followed by a festive dinner-dance.

FAZIO CUP
The Fazio Cup is the club's only match play tournament. It is played over two weekends to allow for maximum participation. The event is flighted and the competition is fierce. The Fazio Cup overall champion comes from the championship flight.

MEN'S INVITATIONAL
The Men's Invitational is the gentlemen's showcase of the year. We typically hold 60 two-player teams, who play three days of golf. There is an opportunity to meet new people, experience some friendly competition, and enjoy the camaraderie that can only be found among individuals who truly love the game of golf. Every contestant leaves this event with fond memories and in need of a few days rest!!!

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS
This is the final major tournament of the year— "Glory's Last Shot." The championships are played over two days. The event is flighted and the overall winner is the individual who shoots the lowest 36-hole total. Upon completion of the event, we hold a "Toast to the Champions" where we recognize the season's major winners over a few cocktails. This is a great night and a very nice way for the season to fade away.
