 2019 Senior Club Championship Rules and Info

1. To participate you must be age 50 or over by March 1, 2020. To participate, you must sign-up and pay by MARCH 31st, 2020. 

2. The 2020 Senior Championship will be contested as a self scheduled seeded match play ladder consisting of 8 bracket players.
To qualify for the match play ladder, we will take your best 3 net scores in GPGC stroke play tournaments played during the year starting with the February 9th Bambino and ending with the final day of the Club Championship Qualifier on August 29th. 

During that period, there are 14 stroke play scores available for the contestants to participate in -- some mid-week, some weekend. Only those tournaments played on Wilson or Harding will count -- the tournament to be played at Hansen Dam on May 17, for example, will not. You can play in any or all 14 qualifying tourneys, but you must participate in a minimum of 3 of the 14 qualifying tournaments to establish your lowest average. We will add up your best three net scores. The 8 participants with the lowest cumulative net scores advances to the match play portion; a tie breaker will be awarded to the participant that played the most qualifier events. 

(Concerning "NET": Net will be your gross score less any handicap strokes you are given on the official score card for that tournament -- whether the strokes your index generates or the strokes the Handicap Committee sometimes assigns in the performance of its duties.") 

The seeded self scheduled match play portion will begin after the second day of the Club Championship Qualifier on August 29th. There will be aproximately 2 weeks to complete each of the 2 barcket and 2 more weeks to schedule and play the Finals. The winners of each match will notify the Tournament Director so the brackets can be advanced and the next pairings can be confirmed. All self scheduled bracket play must be completed before the completion of the September 26th Fall Season Kick-Off Tournament.  It will be mandatory to play the Finals match during the Fall Season Kick-Off tournament if the Finals match has not already been decided. The Senior Champion will be the winner of the Finals bracket match! 

The playoff rounds must be played at Griffith Park and Wilson Golf Course will be the default course to play on if one can not be agreed upon.

4. The entry fee is $25 for each eligible player who wants to participate in the Senior Championship. You must sign up and pay by MARCH 31st, 2020.
Note: You do not need to play in that qualifier event but you must sign up by then.


Remember, you only need any 3 of the qualifiers to be eligible but only 8 players with the lowest 3 aggregate scores will advance. So play as many events as you can until the end and continue to replace high scores with lower scores because only your lowest 3 scores will be used regardless of how many you have.

Good Luck!
