2017 LANDRY INVITATIONAL
On Monday, May 22nd, 2017, Wood Ranch Country Club in Simi Valley, CA will offer the opportunity to play one of California’s premier courses and support the Ventura County Fellowship of Christian Athletes by participating in the 2017 Landry Invitational. Each golfer will play his/her own ball in this unique, competitive format called “40 Balls”. The winning group will receive a spot and paid expenses to Southern California FCA’s Landry Cup ($6,000 value), last year hosted at Pelican Hill Golf Club. How often do you have an opportunity to compete in a premier event on one of California’s best golf courses while supporting a great cause?
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has challenged and invited athletes and coaches to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA seeks to fill a void of Christian leadership in our culture, and especially in our schools. Dr. Billy Graham said, “One coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in a lifetime.” Ventura County FCA’s philosophy is to connect with and serve “to and through” local coaches – leveraging their influence for an eternal impact.
YOU can support FCA and experience the best golfing event of the summer by reserving your foursome today!

“‘40 Balls’ is the name of a golf tournament format for teams comprised of four golfers. On each hole of an 18-hole round, the team must decide which team members' scores will count on that hole. At the end of 18 holes, 40 such scores must have been counted, and those 40 scores - or 40 balls - make up the team's final score.
A team is made up of four players A, B, C, and D. The choice of which balls to use is made after completing each hole. So all four players complete Hole 1; before reaching the next tee, the team decides to use the scores of A and C for No. 1. After completing Hole 2 but before reaching the third tee, the team decides to use the scores of B, C and D for No. 2; and so on, counting 40 scores total over 18 holes.
Handicaps are used in 40 Balls.
