Entry Fee: $35.00

Tournament Information

 

All members of the 2017 Victoria Golf Course Men’s Club, Senior and Junior Men’s Club affiliates are eligible.

You must have at least 10 scores from Victoria played regular club events (Wednesdays, weekend tournaments, singles and/or doubles match play and Interclub play) in the computer for this year, posted by August 15, 2017.  The restrictions above are intended to prevent players who use the computer for the purpose of obtaining a handicap and who do not support our club or golf course. These players are not eligible to play in the Club Championship.  If you are unsure if you are eligible or have extenuating circumstances, contact the executive.

 Medal play

  • Your score is to be kept by one of your playing partners.
  • The RCGA rules of golf are in full effect.
  • No gimmies. All putts must be holed.
  • Play the ball as you find it – no bumping to improve your lie.
  • A local rules sheet will be provided to each player – ensure it is reviewed prior to your tee time.
  • Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse.
  • In the event of discrepancies, the decision of the tournament chairperson in consultation with the club professional will be final.

 

General Points

  • Courtesy and etiquette are at a premium.
  • Do not step on a competitor’s putting line.
  • Cell phones must be turned off prior to start of play.
  • Do not make noise or move in the line of sight of a competitor when they are playing their shot.
  • Repair your ball marks and replace your divots.
  • Maintain pace of play – 4.5 hour rounds are the target.
  • Play or practice on the course is not permitted after 2000 hours on the Friday immediately prior to the start of the tournament – players found on the course after that time will be disqualified.

 

The field will be divided into a minimum of 4 flights:

1st Flight

2nd Flight

3rd Flight

4th Flight

 

Individuals will be placed in their flights prior to the first round and will remain in that flight for both rounds of the championship. After entries close, the number of entries will be divided roughly by four based on handicap distribution to determine the number of entries in each flight.

 

You will be placed in your flight based on your handicap index as of August 15.  Once you are in a flight, you are only eligible to win the prizes for that flight. For example, if you are in the 2nd flight, you can only win 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize for that flight.

 

The exception is 1st prize for First Flight.

The person with the low two-day score for the tournament will win 1st prize for the First Flight and be the Club Champion, regardless of how they were originally flighted.  If someone in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th flights wins the Club Championship; they are not eligible for an additional prize in their flight.

Tee Times
Tee times will be posted by the Thursday before the tournament. Sunday tee times will be posted by 1800 Saturday. Sunday tee times and pairings will be determined by Saturday’s scores.
