THE ANNIVERSARY CUP
The year 2013 marked a milestone for the RB Inn Men’s Golf Club as it celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding in 1963. To commemorate this achievement, the RBI Men’s Golf Club developed a year-long event entitled “The 50th Anniversary Celebration Series”, fashioned somewhat after the PGA’s FedEx Cup. The Series culminated in a special December 2013 tournament named the Golden Jubilee Tournament. That tournament was such a hit that the Club subsequently decided to re-name the year-long event “The Annual Anniversary Celebration Series” and the annual year-end special tournament the “Anniversary Cup”.
The Annual Anniversary Celebration Series is Structured as follows:
Every time a member plays in an RBI Men’s Golf Club event (see exceptions below), they earn 2 points. In addition, a member earns 1 additional point whenever they (a) win a prize as a member of a winning team or (b) win a prize for an individual low net score and/or (c) win a closest to the pin prize. A member will earn 5 additional points if they score a Hole-In-One during the season. In order to qualify to participate in the 2021 Anniversary Cup tournament on December 13, 2021, a member must attain a minimum of 50 points. All points accumulated in excess of 50 points will be used in a formula to lower the member’s Net Score in the Anniversary Cup tournament. Each point earned over the 50 point qualifying level will lower a member’s net score by 1/20 (0.05) of a stroke. For example, if a member accumulates 88 points during the course of the year, the 38 points over the 50 minimum qualifying points will earn that member a deduction of 1.9 strokes (38 X 0.05) from his net score in the Anniversary Cup tournament. Obviously, the more points a member earns during the course of the year in excess of 50 points, the more strokes that member will be able to deduct from his net score in the December 13th Anniversary Cup tournament.
Exceptions: Participation in the Member/Guest tournament, a Men’s & Women’s Club Golf Mixer or the Match Play portion of the President’s Cup will not earn points towards the Anniversary Cup.
