    2018 Grandaddy of em All Event: We Want You!

    The contests are going to come fast and furious throughout the year and the 1st one might just take place sooner rather than later. What do you need to know?



    Its all expenses paid
    Its the trip of a lifetime
    It's held at a location incredibly special
    Gear, Golf, Good People

    When and Where
    Early December
    Carlsbad, CA and More

    Getting a spot is as easy as winning a contest on THP and they will be coming throughout the entire year. As you can see from previous teams, tenure and/or activity have nothing to do with being selected. All it takes is a chance at a contest and your 2018 THP Albatross Club Membership, and for more information on that, click here.

    If you want to hear what the Grandaddy is all about, click here for Live Update thread on the 2017 edition that just took place. You will be able to see everything that happens and feel as though you are with the team. If you want to get down to the soul of this event, click here to see Al's speech. Al is a member of the Hideaway Golf Club, who welcomed the participants into his beautiful home and discussed what it was all about over drinks and delicious food.

    This year we have the addition of a non-playing assistant captain, PhillyV, that will come from one participant of the past Grandaddy events.

    The Team
    tequila4kapp - Captain
    ArmyGolf - Contest #1 Winner
    shanewu - Contest #2 Winner
    dacatalyst41 - Contest #3 Winner
    BlueHen2006 - Contest #4 Winner
    KEV - Contest #5 Winner
