Why Dormy?

Why Dormy?

Dormie (also spelled "dormy") is a term used in match play, denoting that the score is such that one player is the same number of points ahead as there are holes still to play; thus that should one hole be halved, that leading player will win the match.  "Dormie" comes from the word "dormir," which shares a French and Latin origin.  "Dormir" means "to sleep." "Dormie" means that a player has reached a match play lead that is insurmountable - and so the player can relax, knowing that he cannot lose the match. "Dormir" (to sleep) turns into "dormie" (relax, you can't lose).
 
A fitting history, as the patio at the Dormy Grill is one of the most relaxing places to enjoy world class fare.
