CTGA Tournament Guidelines

The CTGA Board of Directors is committed to providing a golf schedule and tournament environment that appeals to all its Members. The numbers of tournaments and the variety of courses and tournament formats have been scheduled based on inputs from Members and history of past participation.

To run our tournaments effectively, we ask for player cooperation as follows:

  • That all Members and their invited Guests represent CTGA with the highest respect and dignity. Proper conduct at and on the course is important to us.
  • Our goal at each tournament is for all players to enjoy golf, the group we're playing with, the golf course, and the tournament format.
  • CTGA plays to USGA Rules of Golf. Any CTGA specific rule exceptions and/or course local Rules will be defined to all Members and invited Guests. It's the responsibility of all Members to know and apply CTGA Rules of Play at all tournaments and ensure that their invited Guests comply with same.
  • The golf courses we play have differing dress codes. Some are liberal while others have defined dress requirements. To be consistent and avoid non-compliance of dress codes at any course, CTGA recommends that all Members dress consistent with upscale courses at all CTGA tournaments. CTGA also recommends that all players use soft spike shoes only.
  • Slow Play affects all golfers. CTGA Pace of Play goal is designed to help minimize "Undue Slow Play," and all CTGA Members and their invited Guests are challenged to comply with this goal.
  • All courses require leagues to commit to the number of players 5 to 10 days prior to the event. CTGA is committed to complying with these requirements and have "Signup Entry Deadlines" identified for each tournament.

Again, CTGA is a golf league that strives to make every tournament an exciting and fun event.

·         Steven Leonard with the Low Net Rounds of the Day – 64

Ryder Cup Tournament Results

Ryder Cup results are now available.

Our first ever Ryder Cup event was a great success.  Everyone enjoyed the Match Play and we look forward to this format again in 2021.  Highlights from Saturday are….

·         44 players gave us 22 Blue Team players captained by Erik Rudi and 22 Red Team players captained by Nathan Neal.

·         22 Matches resulted in a Team Tie…11 Blue Team wins and 11 Red Team wins.

·         Lowest handicap Index was Erik Rudi (2.6) and the highest Index was Mark Brody (36.3)

·         Average Handicap Index spread other than the 15.8  between Mark Brody and John Cervantes was 0.36 which made for some great matches.

·         Only one scheduled player had to cancel due to lingering injury which resulted in that Match win by default for the Blue Team.

·         Of the other 21 Matches, the margins of win (Matches closed out on specific holes) were:

#13         1 win                      #14         3 wins

#15         4 wins                    #16         4 wins

#17         6 wins                    #18         3 wins

·         Closest Matches to Finish were….

·         Greg DeGrazia and Mike Fitzpatrick were tied going to #18.  DeGrazia won the hole to win the Match.

·         David Nardecchia was 1 up on Steve Barnes going to #18.  Steve missed a short putt on #18 to Tie the Match.

·         Lori Keith was 1 up on Tod Alderman going to #18 and won the hole to win the Match.

·         Largest comeback just to fall short of victory….Doug Johnson was 6 holes down to Chad Crawford after 10 holes, won 5 of the next 6 holes to get to 1 down going to #17.  Chad won #17 for the win.

·         Largest Handicap Index Spread was the 15.8 strokes (Mark Brody vs John Cervantes).  Mark was a true grinder as he took John to the 16th hole before losing.  Great playing, Mark.

 

And as usual, Special KUDOS to the following…..

·         Individual Low Gross:  Brad Kendrick - 73

·         Individual Low Net:  Mark Brody - 63

·         Greg DeGrazia, Carl Givens and David Nardecchia with the only Deuces in the 2nd Deuce Flight with a 2 round Carry-Over.  Way to go guys.

·         And finally, the Old Man shoots his age again…and I’m not talking about Carl Givens.

2-Day Championship Tournament Results

2-Day Championship Results are now available.

 

In addition to our Team winners, Special KUDOS to the following…..

·         Dwayne Saxon with the only Deuce in the 1st Trash Flight on Saturday.

·         Brad Kendrick (2) and Walt Shofner (1) with the only Deuces in the 1st Trash Flight on Sunday.

·         No Deuces either day in the 2nd Trash Flight which means another BIG 2nd Trash Flight Deuce Pot at our Ryder Cup event on June 20.

·         And finally, once again to Eddie Nunez for shooting his age on Sunday.
