Bella Vista, AR (February 21, 2014) - The Bella Vista Village Property Owners Association is announcing its first tournament of the 2014 golfing season.

Bella Vista Village's No Frills Three-Person Scramble is scheduled for Saturday, March 29, and Sunday, March 30, on the Kingswood and Berksdale golf courses. Members and their guests may register through Friday, March 21. Typically, a member is required on each team; however, this year, a member can sponsor one nonmember team.

The tournament, which will begin at 9 a.m. each day with a shotgun start, is a 36-hole scramble event. Each golfer is required to contribute three drives per day. On the first day of the tournament, half of the field will play the Kingswood Golf Course and the other half will play the Berksdale Golf Course. The fields will switch courses on the second day.

Each player must have a certified U.S. Golf Association Handicap. Only one player per team may have a negative Bella Vista Scramble handicap. Golfers not included in the Bella Vista Handicap System must have valid copies of handicap cards.

The entry fee is $90 per team, which does not include green fees or cart rental.

All teams will compete in both divisions. Fifty percent of the prize money goes to the gross division and 50 percent of the prize money goes to the net division. A team can win in only one division, since the highest possible winnings will determine placement. Forty percent of the field will share in the prize money. Skins and closest-to-the-pin prizes will also be included. All prizes will be gift certificates.
