Goat caddies (yes, goat caddies) are coming to Silvies Valley Ranch

Published

on

Move over Steve Williams, the real G.O.A.T. caddie is here. More specifically: the caddying goats are here. That’s right, folks, In 2018, The Retreat & Links at Silvies Valley Ranch will offer guests goats at the resort’s 7-hole challenge course, McVeigh’s Gauntlet, this summer. Take that, Bandon Dunes!

This is

  • Not an Onion story
  • Fantastic

The professionally trained American Range Goats were born and bred at Silvies Valley Ranch. Seamus Golf has been tapped to design the custom got pack that will carry drinks, balls, tees, and a few clubs (players won’t need anything close to a full set on the Gauntlet).

“We’re taking the golf experience at Silvies Valley Ranch to a new level in 2018,” says Dr. Scott Campbell, veterinarian and owner of The Retreat & Links at Silvies Valley Ranch. “We’ve been developing an unprecedented caddie training program with our head caddie, Bruce LeGoat, to ensure that he and his team are ready for the opening of The Gauntlet this summer.”

“We’re truly redefining both goat and golf operations at the ranch. Can you think of another course where its caddies were literally born, raised and fully educated on-property? We will get you a caddie who really knows the course and won’t give you any bad advice – and they work for peanuts!”

Bruce LeGoat! Peanuts! This sounds like the greatest innovation in caddying since the rangefinder. If you’re not excited for the debut of the Gauntlet Goats, well, check your chest for a beating heart.

Of course this good boy/girl is training hard through the winter for the important job ahead!

The 7-hole short course was conceived so golfers and play a quick, care-free round, settle bets, and marvel at the scenery across a series of short par 3s and par 4s (with goats). The Retreat & Links at Silvies Valley Ranch opened for a preview in the summer of 2017. It features a 34-room, Western-inspired, eco-resort, the expected range of top-notch dining and spa facilities, as well as two reversible Dan Hixson-designed 18-hole courses. In addition to the 7-hole McVeigh’s Gauntlet, the property includes Chief Egan, a mountain meadow 9-hole par-3 course.

April marks the official opening season for The Retreat & Links at Silvies Valley Ranch (although is doesn’t sound like the goats will be in action until later in the year). We’ll look forward to reports of four-hooved caddies’ first loops.

    Very good… and the goats will nibble at the grass on the greens… as the sheep in ancient times were used to mow the greens.

The Match 3: Mickelson/Barkley vs Curry/Manning – Full Viewer’s Guide

Published

on

Capital One’s The Match: Champion’s for Change gets underway with this week, with two new additions joining the third edition of the contest. Phil Mickelson will team up with Charles Barkley, while Peyton Manning will return and this time pair up with current NBA star Steph Curry.

Ahead of the event, here’s a rundown of all the essential details you need to know about the contest

The Format

The format for The Match 3 is 18 holes of modified alternate shot. 

In this format, both players from each team will hit tee shots, and then swap balls for their approach shots (e.g. Mickelson will hit Barkley’s second shot and vice versa). Following the second shot, the teams will decide between which ball they want to play for their third.

How good are Barkley, Manning and Curry at golf?

We saw Peyton Manning perform well in The Match 2, and the former NFL quarterback plays off a 6.4 handicap index.

Having played on the formerly known Web.com Tour, Steph Curry is a very proficient golfer and plays off a 0.1 handicap index.

Charles Barkley’s handicap index is unknown, and his swing used to be a source of ridicule. However, Barkley has transformed his swing in recent years, and you can check out this small sample of his game from when he played the ‘Bogey or Better’ challenge at the 18th hole during the broadcast of The Match 2.

Location and Date

The event takes place Friday, Nov. 27 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.

Who will the event benefit?

The Match: Champion’s for Change will raise funds for historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

How to Watch

The event will be broadcast live on TNT this Friday, Nov. 27, from 3 PM ET. In addition, Bleacher Report will provide a “Cart Cam” stream – leading up to and during the event.

The Coverage

TNT’s live coverage of Capital One’s The Match will be hosted by Brian Anderson, who will provide play-by-play alongside Trevor Immelman and Andre Iguodala. Cheyenne Woods and Gary McCord will feature as on-course announcers for the event, while Eli Manning will be part of a pre-game show as well as “Cart Came” alongside LPGA legend Michelle Wie.
