Welcome to the Over the Mountain Showdown
Renowned for its panoramic beauty, The Banff Springs Golf Course is a captivating and challenging layout set in the heart of Canada's Rocky Mountains. And while the real-life course is currently closed for the winter season, you can still head to the mountains and play all 18 holes in this week's UG Showdown! 🏔️🏌️
This Week's Showdown: Over the Mountain
The Over the Mountain Showdown begins on Monday, December 12, and will take place exclusively on Banff Springs Golf Course. Winds will be fixed for each round of this Showdown, and for the very first time, winds will be the SAME in both the semi-final and finals rounds! This gives you the perfect opportunity to put those practice pins to use and lower your scores 😉
The Showdown Rundown
Individual qualifying rounds will happen Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. These rounds will be played on the front 9 holes of the selected course. You only need to qualify ONCE out of the three days in order to advance to the semi-finals. You'll get TWO replays for these rounds.
The semi-final round will take place over Thursday and Friday, which means you'll have 48 hours to lock in your score for the round. This way, everybody can play at their own pace! This round will include 18 holes of the selected course. You'll only have ONE replay for this round.
The final round will be played Saturday and Sunday, with 48 hours to complete 18 holes once again. You won't get any replays for this round, which makes practice pins especially useful as you'll want to make every shot count!
Winds will be fixed throughout the Showdown—and winds for the the semi-final and final round will be the SAME. Each tournament division will have similar wind directions throughout the Showdown. The qualifying round will have its own unique set of fixed winds, while winds for the semi-final and final round will be the same. Join our Facebook group to get an exclusive guide to wind directions when each new round begins!
