Information

The Club PGA Pool is a competition where participants choose players from a list of tournament entries and the winners are determined by the tournament earnings of their chosen players.  Proceeds from the Club PGA Pool help out the visually impaired and blind children.  

The next pool will be for the The Tour Championship.  Entry forms can be downloaded from this site (below), obtained from O'Keefe's Pro Shop, or from Darren Douma.  

SEE RESULTS BELOW

entry Rules

For each event, a list of the players participating in the PGA Tournament will be provided on the entry form.  The entry form can be downloaded from this site, picked up in the Pro Shop, or provided by Darren Douma.  The cost to participate is $10 per entry form.  Enter on your own or team up with a friend.  You can enter more than once if you like.  The Club PGA Pool is for members only.  Select 10 players from the entry form only.  Clearly print your team members in the spaces provided on the form.   Once completed, you can drop off your entry form and payment at the O'Keefe Golf Shop.  After the final round of play on Sunday, we will total all your selected player’s winnings from that PGA event.  We will pay out the 4 highest winning totals from the prize pool (1st Place 40%, 2nd Place 30%, 3rd & 4th Place 10% each). Winnings can be picked up the following week in the Pro Shop.  

Thank-you O’Keefe's Golf Shop and Staff for helping out!
