WELCOME PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE MCDUFFERS!
Started in 2004 in Palm Springs, CA with only 12 friends and family members, The McDuff Invitational has morphed into a 100+ player, larger-than-life summer golf event for those that are lucky enough to be invited. Currently, the tournament is played and stayed solely in St. George, UT. The beauty of this area makes this a one of a kind destination. After your morning round, you have an abundance of fun things you can do less than 30 min from the hotel. You can head out to Zion National Park. You can head to the casinos in Mesquite. You can head out for an afternoon round at one of the other ten courses in the area or take a drive to Mesquite to take your pick from another seven courses including Wolf Creek. You can head out to the Sand Hollow Reservoir for some sun and fun either jet-skiing on the lake or UTV riding on the beach. You can head to the movies to cool off in some A/C or you can head to your hotel / condo / house for some swimming, relaxation, or napping before heading out to dinner. The choice is yours.
This four round, pro-style, stroke event is made up of players of all skill levels. Since our tournament is fully handicapped, we have crowned champions from 2 handicaps up to 20+ handicaps. I pride myself on doing everything possible to make things as fair as possible so every player entered has a shot to take home the McDuff Trophy.
I love trying to think of new ways to make the tournament better year after year. From fun, daily money games to our tournament swag, I leave no stone unturned when it comes to making the event the best event you'll attend for the money. The courses we play are all outstanding and unique in their own way and some will probably make your Top 10 list. The guys that attend are easy-going and you'll definitely leave with a few more friends then when you arrived.
So if you're into having a great time on some great courses with some great guys in a great location, this is the event for you.
My name is Mike Smoot and I am proud to be your McDuff Leader.
