Plett Super Sixes – 30 March 2018

We were extremely excited to launch the Plett Super Sixes, supported by Stella Artois, on 30 March 2018 at the Plett Country Club.

The Super Sixes concept is modeled on the European Tours sixes event, which has razzmatazz galore, music on all holes, cheerleaders, shot clocks and a host of wacky costumes.

The question plaguing us – “Is the conservative golf world ready for such an innovative format?”

The answer – a resounding “Hell yes!!!”

The Plett Super Sixes saw a re-creation and re-invention of some of the European elements worked into a tight format to fit it all into just one jam-packed, eventful day. To facilitate this, we opted for a ‘betterball’ format, meaning there was no need to finish the hole if you couldn’t contribute to your team. We adopted the ‘ready golf initiative’ and slow play was penalised at the discretion of the tournament committee.

Only 16 teams of 2 were invited to play. The event only utilized 6 holes of the golf course – keeping is short and impactful. Players played 3 games of round robin in their pool. The top two teams qualified for the cup and the bottom 2 for the plate. A knockout format determined the overall champion team with the position of the flags and tees changing for this round.

 

Golf with Music, Booze and Heaps of Fun? Who would’ve thought!

It was a fantastic day of high-spirited fun (and not just because of the shots!) The photos in our gallery are testimony to that. We can’t wait to host this event again. Stay in touch on our facebook page to find out when the Plett Super Sixes comes this way again so you can get in on the action.
