FORMAT The qualifying round is 18 holes of stroke play. The top eight finishers in each flight will qualify for match play. Ties will be decided by a card off. Club Championship qualification: To qualify for the Club Championship in September, you must earn (2) points to qualify to play. Here’s how to earn your points: (1) Point awarded for playing in Thursday or Saturday Team Play (1) Point awarded for any Monthly Tournament (1) Point awarded for (4) Wednesday Sweeps Rounds on the Saturday team play in 2013.

The Club Championship matches are scheduled as follows:

· Saturday, September 7 – Qualifying Round (or 1st match, if only eight or fewer registered for a flight).

· Sunday, September 8 – 1st match (or quarterfinal match, if no qualifier)

· Saturday, September 21 – Semifinal match (or final, if no qualifier)

· Sunday, September 22 – Final match

Question: Should players be allowed to schedule their own dates/times for matches scheduled after September 7-8? (This might be desired by a player who advances to a semifinal or final match but would not prefer to play on the scheduled dates of September 21-22.)

Answer: Yes, the committee will allow players to schedule semifinal or final matches on a date before the September 21-22 weekend. If a player wishes to change his match to an earlier date, it would be his responsibility to contact his opponent and obtain agreement to an earlier date/time. If the players cannot reach agreement on an earlier date, the original date/time must be observed. If there is agreement to a change, the player who initiated the change would be responsible to make the tee time reservation with the golf course and advise Tournament Chairman Eric Diaz of the schedule change.

If there are additional questions related to scheduling of matches in the Club Championship, please direct your questions to rbeckman@ermgc.org.

Wednesday Sweeps

Wednesday Play for ERMGC Members

If you want friendly golf competition and have a chance to earn gift certificates to purchase items from the Golf Shop, sign up for a tee time between 7:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Wednesdays. You may sign up as a single, with a friend, or a group of four. All sign-ups must be members of the Men’s Club. All participants pay an entry fee of $5. Each participant signs up for his appropriate flight and tee.

Every golfer can win a gift certificate redeemable at the pro shop for placing in their flight.
In addition, every player has an opportunity to win a $10 gift certificate for being closest to the hole, or having the long drive in their flight.

Also, on the first Wednesday of each month you have an opportunity to place a wager in our "Beat the Pro" contest. Whatever amount you wager, if your net score beats the pro you will get a gift certificate equal to double your wager. If your net score ties or loses to the pro, you still get a certificate equal to the amount you have wagered. You can’t lose!

The following are flight parameters for tee assignments:

Flight Tees Index Score
Championship Blue N/A Gross
A Net Blue 10.0 and lower Net
B Net Green 10.1 to 15.0 Net
C Net White 15.1 and higher Net
