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.

SEE YOU ON THE FIRST TEE……………

Fall Classic Results

Fall Classic results are now available.

2018 FedEx Cup results are now available.

The unpredictable weather these past 3 weekends were great for CTGA tournament play.  With forecast every weekend calling for rain, it’s hard to believe we got nothing more than a slight shower at Jimmy Clay on September 29.  The Golf Gods were with us again.

 

As we mentioned at our Annual Meeting, there are several issues that your Directors will be working on over the next few weeks as we prepare for the start of our 2019 CTGA Tournament Year.  Once complete, we will send the information out to all members.

 

DIRECTOR MESSAGE

Our annual meeting on Saturday, I feel, confirmed that CTGA not only has the best tournament schedule year in and year out over all other leagues, but also has the best members.  As I mentioned at the meeting, both our membership and average participation were down this year, but that is expected from time to time.  I would like to challenge all members to start looking for and inviting prospective new member that you feel would complement CTGA in 2019.  Along with our website and posters at the City courses, the recruiting by our members is the most dynamic way to get new members.

 

2018 FALL CLASSIC RESULTS

 

Our Fall Classic this weekend was a great success, we thank all who played and look forward to seeing you at our next one in 2019.

 

Attached are the results of our Medal Play competition and FedEx Playoff Finals.  Results of our 2-Player Team competition and our Kodak Challenge Final Results will be sent out later this week.

 

Congratulations to all our Fall Classic competition winners.  I won’t even try to list all our weekend winners here, so enjoy the attachments.

 

As I do every year, I have to single out several important members who are the backbone of our league and who helped make our Fall Classic another great success…….

  • Steve Barnes, Scott Preece and John Vayo, our At Large Directors, who were the ones who made all our tournaments run like a Rolls Royce machine.  We’re glad they’ll be back again in 2019.
  • Sean Nunez, who has the responsibility for managing all the aspects of our finances every tournament.  It’s his commitment that ensures the success of our annual Fall Classic.
  • To Stacey and Cooper Nunez and Barbara Rivera for making sure our food was ready when we finished our round.
  • Cooper Nunez for his help posting Medal Play Scores and his uncanny ability to draw the right tickets for all you lucky guys.
  • To our members who took it upon themselves to chip in with assistance on Saturday and Sunday;
  • To the 51 CTGA members who joined us on this picture perfect weekend.

 

As with every year after our Fall Classic, there’s no rest for the weary…..our first official 2019 tournament will be on October 21 at Delaware Springs.  A great venue and course to showcase CTGA to prospective new members.

Fall Classic Tournament Specifics

Fall Classic round 1 pairings are now available.

Fall Classic Fedex Cup finalists.

Starting Holes for both days will be assigned at the course each day.

 

  • Pace of Play will be enforced this tournament.  If your foursome gets more than a hole behind the group in front, makes no effort to close the gap in reasonable time, and it’s obvious that you are causing excessive delays to the foursomes behind you, all players in your foursome will be penalized for Excessive Slow Play.
  • Cowan Creek requires that all players MUST KEEP THEIR GOLF BAGS ON A CART.  A player can walk, but cannot use a pull cart or carry his/her bag.  CTGA is obligated to comply with this policy….so any player who might decide to pull his/her bag off the cart once on the course will be disqualified.  Please comply!!!!
  • Our post-play refreshments will not include beer this year, so if you want beer, you can BRING YOUR OWN COOLER.
  • We will be sending out our PAY ONLINE information on Thursday and are encouraging all players to pre-pay before Saturday to avoid a long line after play.  This is optional, but we encourage it.
  • Last call for Classic Teams will be during Saturday’s Pre-Start Announcements before start of play.  If you want in this competition and haven’t identified a partner, we’ll try to make it happen at this time.
  • Post play activities will be at the Cowan Creek Pavilion.  Please leave your cart at the course and drive to the Pavilion.  Make sure you bring your official scorecards.
