COMPETITIONS AND CONTESTS

Chapter Team Competition

If you are competing in the National Championship or the Golf Classic, you can also opt in to the Chapter Team Competition to find out which GCSAA-affiliated chapter has the best golfers. A gross and net winner will be crowned, with 75 percent of the entry fees being paid back to the winning chapters. Form your team strategically and take some cash home to your chapter!

The entry fee is $20 per person. Registration of chapter teams begins in December and continues until the close of registration. Each chapter team may have five competitors with the best four scores counting toward the total. All team members must belong to the chapter they are representing. Only one team member may be a golfer with professional status, and only one team member may be a GCSAA affiliate member. A chapter may have more than one team in the competition, but a competitor may not participate on more than one chapter team. 2018 Chapter Team Registration Form

    As the longest running and most popular of all tournament events, the Golf Classic is a two-day flighted tournament open to all skill levels. Enjoy camaraderie and relaxed competition while developing new friendships and pick up tips and techniques from your peers in the industry.

    The Golf Classic will use the point quota scoring system. A point quota for each round is established by subtracting your verified handicap index from 36.

    The maximum allowable handicap index for point system scoring is 30. If you have a handicap index over 30, you will be assigned the minimum of six points per day.

    The quota scoring systems point values:
    0 – Double Bogey or worse
    1 – Bogey
    2 – Par
    3 – Birdie
    4 – Eagle
    5 – Double Eagle

    Taking your point total for the round and subtracting it from the quota for the round will calculate the net score.
