Peninsula Daily News

Carman's column taking a break
PDN sports reporter Michael Carman is savoring a few well-deserved days off. His weekly golf column will return next Wednesday.
Here is a quick run-down of the events happening at area courses in the coming weeks:

TaylorMade demo

SEQUIM — SunLand Golf & Country Club will host a TaylorMade demo day Friday from noon to 4 p.m.

Players can be swing-tested and fitted for the latest TaylorMade products, including the SLDR line of woods and Tour Preferred irons.

Pizza-size cups

SEQUIM — SunLand Golf & Country Club in Sequim will host the first Hackers Cup, a medal-play format event with outsized 15-inch cups, on Friday, Aug. 15.

The tournament was originally planned with 8-inch cups, but SunLand head pro and general manager Tyler Sweet made the change this week.

“I have played in a 15-inch cup event before and the fun level is the highest as it can go,” Sweet said.

The event has a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start and entry is $60.

Overall gross and net champs are guaranteed $200 apiece, and a full field of 80 players will yield a prize fund of $2,100.

Stop by the pro shop at SunLand or phone 360-683-6800, Ext. 13.
