After valuable input from our friends and community, it has come to our attention that we have some errors in the planning of our first-ever Corn Hole tournament.  Cliff View Golf Club & Inn would like to announce the revised version of a Cornhole Benefit Tournament to be held this Saturday, July 10, 2021, @ 2:00 PM to benefit Derek Garrett a local man that was tragically injured on July 4th in a diving accident.

The Cornhole tournament will be a two-person team, double-elimination tournament.  The entry fee is $25/per player and guarantees you at least 2 matches if you lose back-to-back games.  There will be two qualifier rounds of 16 and a Championship round of 8.  The top 4 teams of each qualifier round will advance to the finals as well as continue play for individual placement in the qualifiers. Cash payouts will be made to the top 2 teams in the qualifiers as well as in the Championship.  All teams that are knocked out of a qualifier may reregister and pay another entry fee to play in another qualifier of the tournament if a spot is available. All qualifiers are on a first come first serve basis. A 50/50 split of the entry fees will provide for cash prizes for each of the qualifiers and the championship.  50% of the entry fees will be donated to the Derek Garrett medical fund and 50% used for cash prize payouts. All winning teams may choose to donate their winnings to the benefit of Derek Garrett. All prizes will be based on participation.

All Bracketing will follow the ACO format and we have included the format for the 16 team qualifiers below in PDF.  The teams marked in the ACO 16 team bracket as teams 21,22,25 & 26 will advance to the championship while continuing to play for placement in the qualifiers.  See PDF below.  The championship match will be an 8 team version of the qualifiers and follow the same format of play.  All play will be governed by the season 16 official rules sheet below.  Referees will not be provided and all games/matches will be on the honor system.

In addition, Cliff View Golf Club & Inn is committed to donating 20% of all golf and Brewhouse proceeds for July 10, 2021, to the Derek Garret Medical Fund.

Qualifier 1 at 2 pm – 16 teams top 4 teams advance to the Championship

Qualifier 2 at 5 pm – 16 teams top 4 teams advance to the Championship

Hello, I am Nikki Garrett, Derek’s sister. Derek was in an accident on the 4th of July where he dove into a pool and was hurt. He was flown out to Roanoke Memorial where he is stable in the ICU. We do not know all the details yet of his injuries but do know that he has a long road of recovery ahead. So far, we know he shattered his C4 vertebrae and is in a lot of pain, but unable to feel anything below his neck and chest area. Any donations would be used toward his hospital bills. Even though Derek was hurt badly, he begged not to be flown out because of the cost. It really saddens me that this is what our health care system has come to. Thank you and we will continue to keep you updated as soon as our family knows what the next steps are.
