2014 Lido Competition

Postby LinksLegend » February 23rd, 2014, 3:37 am

So the Lido competition is on again this year and we're all charged with designing a par 3.

I've always meant to submit an entry to this competition but either read about it outside of the entry timelines or simply never got the time to sit down and draw it out. Pathetic :) Intend to change that this year...

So all you desingers out there - why not join me and make an entry. Should be fun, inspire some chat around the designs, and if you win the prize is $3,000 plus $2K towards trip to Lahinch for the annual society meeting. Not bad eh?

Good luck - details below:

The Conditions of the Competition (Adapted from the 1914 Country Life contest)

Special Note: All entries for 2014 must be a par 3 design.

1. The judges awards shall be final and subject to no appeal.

2. The definition of a one-shot hole for the purposes of the competition shall be a hole that is not less than 95 yards nor more than 240 yards in length, as measured from the back of the teeing ground to the center of the green.

3. No competitor may submit more than one drawing. The drawing MUST be accompanied by an entry form as supplied by the competition committee. The envelope containing the entry must be clearly marked on the outside with "MacKenzie Golf Architecture Drawing" and addressed to Gene Zanardi, Chair, Alister MacKenzie Lido Prize Committee, Green Hills C.C., End of Ludeman Lane, Millbrae, CA 94030.

4. The entry must be drawn by hand, including any that may be computer assisted. They may be in black and white or in color. They must show the putting green, teeing ground, fairway, rough, bunkers, hazards, sand hills, mounds, water, roads, and any other features. These should be designated by symbols similar to those in the "Lido" drawing shown separately. The side view of ground elevations (fairway/green) should be similar to that shown in the "Lido" sample drawing.

5. It is recommended, though not required, that a memorandum setting out the merits of the design be included as a separate document. Such memorandum cannot exceed one side of an 8 1/2 " by 11" sheet of paper.

6. The drawing must bear no logo nor the competitor's name and address.

7. All drawings must be submitted by May 15, 2014. The winner will be announced by May 31, 2014

8. The Alister MacKenzie Society reserves the right to publish any entry in any form and in any publications it deems appropriate.

9. All possible care will be taken of the drawing and memoranda, but the Lido Contest Committee accepts no responsibility for their loss or damage.
