By Staff | Mar 11, 2009

On Wednesday, March 18, The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club will host the monthly Gulf Coast Men’s Interclub (GCMI) golf competition. This is an eight team tournament among member clubs.

Each club will send a team consisting of 12 amateur gentlemen golfers plus one professional. Lunch and awards follow the competition. The Dunes Golf Professional Sean Balliet was the driving force behind formation of this league a year ago.

The GCMI tournaments are monthly competitive golf matches between the eight participating clubs, which include:

The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club

Gateway Golf & Country Club

Gulf Harbour Golf & Country Club

Kelly Greens Golf & Country Club

Legends Golf & Country Club

Lexington Country Club

Magnolia Landing Country Club

Olde Hickory Golf & Country Club.

With three matches remaining in the season, The Dunes is in second place behind Gateway. They vow to finish the season strong and bring home the league championship trophy in May.

GCMI Vice President and Dunes team member Jack Roberts explained that the objective of the Interclub league is to promote friendly competitive golf, camaraderie among the clubs, and an opportunity for members to play a variety of courses.

The Interclub season begins in October and ends in May, with each club hosting a single tournament.
