HONORING ANNE RELPH
For the sixth consecutive year, Valley Ace Hardware is hosting a fundraising golf tournament for the Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts. The WCPA provides our community with cultural services and activities not available in most communities our size.
We owe much of this to Anne Kimbell Relph and honor her with this tournament. Ms. Relph is a former stage, television and film actress. She starred on Broadway in ”The Seven Year Itch,” and in London in “Roar Like a Dove,”, and also in “Arms and the Man” in the eastern U.S. tour. Furthermore, her career included some 200 television appearances, and a number of films. Anne dedicated herself to developing and sustaining the WCPA so we could enjoy first run movies at the Jones Theater, Shakespeare in the Park, Creativity Camps for our children’s summer activities, live performances and plays, training for budding thespians, musicians and bands, dances and one-man shows throughout the year.
All of these things make the WCPA a very important community asset and contributor to the great quality of life we all enjoy here in the Wet Mountain Valley.

How To Play the WCPA Golf Tournament
General Scramble Rules
A golf scramble is a format for a golf tournament. Two or more players form a team, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of players keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot, subject to certain criteria. Rules for playing in a scramble are informal, with tournament organizers that modify basic rules as they wish. For example, organizers may require a group to select each player’s tee shot at least twice. The scramble format is not covered under the official Rules of Golf.
Instruct each member of your scramble team to tee off from your starting hole. In a scramble tournament, your team’s opening hole could be any hole on an 18-hole course, depending on the assignment by tournament organizers. Players can tee off with the golf club of their choosing — not necessarily a driver.
Choose the best tee shot through a general consensus of your scramble team. The group can decide the best tee shot based on any criteria they choose. Usually the best shot is the longest drive that lands in the fairway. Or your team may choose a long tee shot that landed off the fairway in the rough if you have a decent lie.
Mark the spot of the best tee shot with a golf tee or ball marker. Direct other players to pick up their balls and hit from within one club length of the marked spot.
Continue selecting the best shot until one player hits the ball in the hole. The team score is total of the best shots.
All registration fees include four mulligans. A mulligan is a second chance to perform an action, usually after the first chance went wrong through bad luck or a blunder. Its best-known meaning is in golf, whereby a player is informally allowed to replay a stroke, even though this is against the formal rules of golf.
There will be designated holes where you can choose to participate the in games. Four games will be played, which include Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, Most Accurate, and Longest Putt. Each game will have an entry for Men’s and Women’s. For more information on which hole will play which game, see the map on your designated golf cart at the event.
Registration for this event has now been opened and there are limited spots available. Check-in for the event will be held between 8:00 am – 8:45 am. Fees include the green fee, golf cart, goodie bag, four mulligans, and lunch after the event.
Fees are $125 per person or $500 per team.
