2024 Special Event Registration Page

The Dual at The Loop 

The Dual at The Loop events will take place on May 31, July 31 and August 31 in 2024. 

A lottery will be conducted to fill each event.  The lottery registration window opens on Tuesday, March 12, 2024 at 9 am and will be open until Thursday, March 14 at 10 pm.  Lottery entries are limited to one per person.

Forest Dunes will begin notifying lottery winners the week of March 18.  Lottery winners will have their choice of entering one of the available events or joining the waiting list for a specific event.  A deposit is required to secure the spot with remaining balance due two weeks prior to the event.  You do not need to identify partner's name or handicap information at time of registration for the lottery.  All participants must have a registered GHIN or equivalent handicap established in order to qualify for net prizes.

The Dual at The Loop is a two-person best ball event with gross and net prizes awarded.  Participants play the Red routing in the morning with a 1/10 split start and then once the first round is completed the second round begins on the Black routing with a 1/10 split start again.  Entry fee includes 36 holes of golf, lunch, dinner, prizes, exclusive tee gift and membership in The Loop 36ers club, a rare group of people who have had the opportunity to play both directions in the same day.  The pricing for all three of the Dual events is the same.  The 2024 entry fee is $525 per person ($1,050 per team).

There is a limit of 32 teams for the May and July Duals and 28 teams for the August Dual.

For future planning, the Dual event is held these same dates every year - May 31, July 31 and August 31.  It is the three times during our season when there are 31 days in a month and helps us avoid having the Black routing on back-to-back days as we play Red routing on even calendar days and Black routing on odd days.
