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 crew of buccanneers meets at a Central Florida area golf course 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 the Champion, Jose Gaspar! 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 Westchase Golf Club in Tampa. Tee time is usually around 5:00.
We're always looking for new Pirates, and all golf handicaps are welcome. Most in our group shoot in the mid-80's to low 100's, but we do have a few 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.
