Club Championship 2021

The club will continue to hold its club championship series in 2021! Here are the details:

  • Members of the groups at each course are eligible to play at their respective course championship,  and full members are eligible to play in both events.
  • Both events will be held on separate dates to allow full members the be able to play in both if they desire.  Group members may upgrade their membership to play in both events at anytime prior to the event (at least 1 day before the start of the event) but must have played in at least 2 of the group’s regular events within the last 12 months to be eligible
  • Full payouts will be distributed at both championships and these will be called the club group championships.  Winners will be termed either Arrowood Group Champion or The Golf Club of California Group Champion. Payouts will be offered to the following categories:
    • Open (Men and women under 55, or any play who desires to play in the open division)  Gross, and Net
    • Senior (Men and women 55-64, or anyone 65 and older who wishes to play in the Senior Division)  Gross and Net.
    • Super Senior (Men and women 65 and older) Net
  • The club will pay the entry fee for the SCGA Tournament of Club Champions for the winners in each of the following 4 categories, and these players will be the overall “Club Champions”*.
    • Open Gross Champion*
    • Open Net Champion*
    • Senior Gross Champion*
    • Senior Net Champion*
      • * Champions are decided based on best gross or net performance for one full event (2 rounds)  in each of the 2 divisions regardless of course played.  Tiebreakers will be decided based on the USGA 9-6-3-1 system.  Example.  Arrowood Sr. Net Champ is 5 under par net, and GCC Sr. Net Champ is also 5 under par after completing the 2 round group event. AW player shoots net 34 on the back nine for the last round, and GCC player shoots net 35 on the back nine for the last round, AW player is the overall champion.  If still tied after comparing back nines for the last round, then the lowest score of the last 6 holes are used, then last 3 holes then the last hole.  IF still tied, then use 9-6-3-1 for the front nine last round, if still tied use the same process comparing the first round.  Use the same process for Gross except all hole scores are gross, not net.
