TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR’S REPORT

Sept 20 is a shotgun and will determine our 2012 Net Flight Champions.  We will have three flights.  Trophies will be awarded and the club low net score for the day will represent us at the annual SCGA Club Champions event.  The club will pay your entry.

Sept 19 and 20:  CMSGA Gross  Club Champion will be determined by that player who scores the lowest total gross score for Sept 19 on Los Lagos plus his gross score on Mesa Linda on Sept 20.

Four tee times are allocated for Sept 19.  You can compete by entering using one of these methods:

Place a note in our box

HANDICAP REPORT

EXTRA REASON TO PLAY

There is an extra reason for all CMSGA members to compete in the September Club Championship on September 20.

In the past, CMSGA only sent the Gross club champion to the SCGA Tournament of Club Champions.

Beginning this year, the Net club champion will also be awarded a paid entry into the SCGA Tournament of Club Champions.

All you have to do is be the best player on that one day CMSGA club championship tournament.

Both the gross and net club champions will win a paid ($135) entry into the SCGA Club Champions Tournament in December at an elegant resort/country club in the Palm Springs area.

Mike Supple

Handicap Chairman
