2019 Bermuda Goodwill Itinerary

Saturday 7 December
About 70% of the participants arrive on the island this day. It will be much too late to play golf but plenty of time to adjust and check into rooms and a perfect time to explore the island. Then select a place for relaxing or dinner.

Sunday 8 December
This is practice round day. There will be times available from 11 am to 1 PM at Mid Ocean. Please book tee times as soon as possible. In addition, several Mid Ocean members playing in the Goodwill would be able to book times prior to 11 am. This will expand the opportunity for more rounds at Mid Ocean. Also, teams staying at the Mid Ocean Club would have a similar opportunity to book earlier times.. In the past, several teams arriving this day and staying at the Rosewood Tuckers Point, preferred playing at Tuckers Point. This is also an option.

We anticipate that approximately 20-25 of the 30 teams will be playing in the practice rounds.

This evening, everyone will go down to the Mid Ocean Beach-house/facility for our welcome to Bermuda Goodwill event and light dinner party.

Monday 9 December
Opening round at the Mid Ocean Club.
Prior to this day, mostly likely by November 1st you will be instructed to send names and email addresses to me and to the Mid Ocean professionals with proper names and GHIN numbers for your team. You will be informed of your starting times in advance of your arrival to Bermuda.

Since there are 30 teams involved. We need a 7:30 am start time to avoid darkness.

Tuesday 10 December
Round #2 at Mid Ocean

Wednesday 11 December
8:00 am Shotguns at Mid Ocean & Tuckers Point.

This is the final round of the Goodwill. There will be an 8:00 am shotgun. This means that all teams would finish about 12:30 PM

The final event would be at the Mid Ocean beach facility. Football tailgater type fare (hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, etc. and everyone would be in golf attire and ready for beer or wine. The winners will be receiving their cash awards during this time. I anticipate that this event would be from 12:15 PM to 2:30 PM

Teams that need to make the 3 PM AA flight can leave at 1 PM or 1:15 PM. The teams returning on British Air 8 PM to London have all afternoon.

Thursday 12 December
This is the normal departure date for most teams; however, teams like Lakes (from Ohio) and Woodlands (from MA) usually stay for several days. My team is here from the 5th to 14th … plenty of time to create additional events.

***IMPORTANT NOTICE***
THE FINAL EVENT IS A SHOTGUN AT 8 AM. THE FIRST 20 TEAMS THAT COMMIT AND PAY WILL PLAY MID OCEAN FOR THIS ROUND AND THE REMAINING 10 TEAMS WILL PLAY TUCKERS POINT.

If you are among the first 20 teams and prefer to play Tuckers for the final round, then you can make that choice. Please note that being in the group of 10 does not have anything to do with your standings at the end of round #2. It is just the fact that we would not be able to put 30 teams on the same course for a shotgun. As all of you know, the Tuckers Point Club “touches” the Mid Ocean and the final party is 3 minutes away.
