CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP INFO


 

The Club Championship involves a two day qualification tournament that leads into a 8 person matchplay finals. Qualified defending Club Champions will automatically be seeded #1 in the matchplay portion of the event. If they cannot play, fail to play 3 current year tournaments, or change flights, the lowest 8 qualifiers will be seeded in the order of their qualifying scores.  Alternates will be on standby for substitutions due to no shows but only for the opening round of match play.

 

Cost: The $140 of this tournament covers potentially 5 rounds of golf.  Players are only guaranteed 2 rounds during the qualifier (two rounds). If you make the cut, you move onto matchplay where you could end up playing an additional 3 rounds based on your performance. No additional entry fees or greens fees will be collected for any matchplay rounds. 

Eligibility Requirements:  Players need to have competed and finished at least 5 events during the previous season to qualify for the Club Championship and be a member in good standing.

Previous Year's Club Champions must still sign up but are exempt within their flight to the matchplay portion of the event, but may compete in the qualifying rounds to collect Charlie Chaplin Cup points.

Top 7 places in each flight qualifies for matchplay or top 8 if there is no defending champion in that flight.

Please do not request partners or tee times for this event. Players will be paired by 12 month low handicap. Championship flight will go out first on Day 1 and then we will flip flights for Day 2 however we will re-pair the foursomes within each flight based on the standings after the first round.

Slow play will not be tolerated.

Any player may elect to compete in the Championship flight, which does not use handicaps. Winner of this flight is considered the overall Club Champion and will have their name engraved on the Marty Tregnan trophy in the club house. Everybody else will play in the Net Flights, of which there is 3 (A, B, C Flights).

Net flights will be using your year low SCGA index or a GPGC tournament handicap if it is lower than your SCGA index. Winners of each flight will be sent to the annual SCGA Tournament of Club Champions, paid for by the club. In addition, all club champions receive a handsome script payout and free GPGC membership for the next renewal period. 

No script prizes will be given out for the qualifying rounds, but we will still hold a gross and net skins competition each day.
