HISTORY OF GASPAR GOLF

Gaspar Golf came about when two members of another local golf group decided it was time to take the next step, and grow their own golf group to epic proportions, similar to a flotilla of pirate ships invading a lazy seaside town, ready to pillage and plunder.  We won't be stopped.  Can't be stopped.  You're either with us, or it's time for you to walk the plank, matey!

We currently have over 400 players in our group who play golf on the weekends and weekdays.  But once a month, this motley group of buccanneers meets at a Tampa Bay Area golf course (and beyond!) to play our monthly tournament, the Gaspar Invitational.  Everyone is assigned a Points Quota, and we play a Points Game based on all the players' quotas, awarding a some cash and the title of Jose Gaspar Champion!  We also play a flighted Skins Game, with the top half and the bottom half of the players competing in their own groups in a birdie-or-better, ties-cancel-the-skin format.  We have a Closest to the Pin contest on all the par 3 holes.  We also have a Sink the Putt contest, where all eligible players can take one shot at a difficult putt in order to win an ever growing pot of cash.

Not to leave anyone out, someone had the bright idea to award a trophy to the worst golfer of the month, and we named this golfer the Wench.  The Wench is equally as coveted, and the winner usually totes an ugly trophy around all month, creating envy among every golfer he or she encounters.

When Daylight Savings Time hits, some of us Gaspar Golfers play in a Monday Night Golf League at Rocky Point Golf Course in Tampa.  Tee time is 5:15, and all the players from our golf group play together, shunning non-Gaspars like they have the plague.  Who wouldn't want to be one of us?

Starting in 2022, we will also organize our first annual Gaspar Golf Weekend, where we'll play several rounds of golf and stay somewhere outside of our beautiful area.  There may or may not be some adult beverages consumed at this event, so get your livers ready for the debouchery.

We're always looking for new blood, and all golf handicaps are welcome.  Most in our group shoot in the mid-80's to low 100's (Yeah, there's some good golf going on here!), but we do have some ringers and better players sprinkled into the mix.  Girls are HIGHLY welcome, so bring your wives, girlfriends and booty calls to see if they can stand being around such a well behaved group of pirates.

Send us an email by using the contact form on our website, and join our Facebook page to see where some of us are playing this weekend!  We'd love to have you!
