While intoxicating and revelatory, playing golf barefoot is not without its risks. Stepping on a stick, rolling your ankle or any number of other injuries may arise as a result of your feet becoming one with brother nature. To that end, all BFC participants are required to sign a waiver prior to the start of the tournament, releasing Suave Golf and Bennett Valley Golf Course of any liability related to the BFC.
While we encourage every BFC contestant to walk all 18 holes in their bare feet, playing barefoot is not required. Any contestant may wear sandals, flip flops, shoes or any other footwear for any/all of their round. Please also be mindful that footwear is required in all communal spaces at Bennett Valley GC (golf shop, restaurant/bar, parking lot, etc.).
2-person Shamble - Net Best Ball
Each team will be required to use at least 4 tee shots from each teammate
