Hickory players representing Oregon, Washington, and California are needed for an old fashioned duel for the COW Bell! Our 2nd COW Cup, we need your help to retain the Bell by representing the golden state of California once again!

SATURDAY Oct 21st - Noon
-- 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
-- Four ball & 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 Four ball match.

Costs = less than $100 for 2 days of golf
The privately owned Centennial Golf Club, conveniently located in Medford on the I-5 corridor, has generously extended to our group rates of $45 a day.
* includes cart if desired.
($5 beer credit if you walk says golf director)
* range balls.
* One time tournament fee of $20 to cover tee prizes and awards
* All monies payable at course


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 5700 yards and the forward red tees around 5200.


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 7pm. An expansive paved stone covered patio area that overlooks the 18th green makes for a pleasant outdoor dining experience.


Menu can be browsed here:
