With the exception of the Poinsettia Cup held in May and subject to a change in circumstances, the Club will no longer host a Championship Flight (gross) in our monthly tournaments.

In the event the Tournament Committee determines the number of entrants with low indexes in any specific event warrants a review for that event, the Tournament Committee reserves the discretion to divide the A Flight into two divisions, a “Tiger Division” for the A Flight entrants with the lowest indexes in the field and a “Mickelson Division” for the remainder of the A Flight field. The Tiger Division will compete among themselves using their gross scores and the Mickelson Division will compete among themselves using their net scores.

Prizes and points will be awarded in both divisions based on the number of entrants assigned to each division of the A Flight. The Tournament Committee expects to divide the A Flight into two evenly populated divisions, but may make adjustments if in the Committee’s sole discretion it determines that fairness to the field and competitors warrants any adjustments.

TWO-MAN MAN SCRAMBLE

FORMAT: 2-Man teams. Flight will be determined based on the average index of the partners. Both team members hit from the tee on each hole. The team selects one of the tee shots and both team members hit from that location. The procedure is repeated until the ball is holed. The winner is the team with the lowest score for 18 holes. Team handicaps (as described below) will be subtracted from gross scores in the A, B and C Net flights.

HANDICAP CALCULATION: The maximum allowable individual course handicap differential between partners is six (6) strokes. If the higher course handicap is more than six strokes greater than the lower, it will be reduced. The team handicap (USGA recommendation) is calculated by adding 35% of the lower course handicap and 15% of the higher course handicap. The team must use at least four tee shots from each member on the front nine and at least four tee shots from each member on the back nine.

FOUR-BALL TOURNAMENT

All entrants will play a flighted two-man better ball competition. Entrants will have the option to participate in this event to qualify to represent the Club in the SCGA Four-Ball Net Championships. Teams electing this option will play from the blue tees. The two teams, regardless of flight (see below), with the lowest team net score will advance to the SCGA Four-Ball Net Championship. The Club will sponsor the entry of the two winning teams into the SCGA Four-Ball Net Championship and will cover the team’s entry fees into that event, subject to the players’ meeting all SCGA entry requirements, including advancing in a qualifying event to be chosen by the team members from the qualifying venues designated by the SCGA (see the SCGA website for the available venues and dates). The 2018 SCGA Four-Ball Net Championship is a two-day event and will be played on October 4 and 5 at the California Country Club in Whittier, California.

Course handicaps for players attempting to qualify for the SCGA Four-Ball Net Championship will be determined using the rules governing the SCGA Four-Ball Net Championship (e.g., maximum of 18.4 index: course handicaps for players with indexes higher than 18.4 will be limited to a handicap based on an index of 18.4).

All players and teams will be assigned to flights based on the average of the two indexes of the two players on a team. For entrants attempting to qualify for the SCGA Four-Ball Net Championship, teams with an average index of 10.0 or below will play in the A Flight and teams with an average index of 10.1 and above will play in the B+ Flight. For entrants electing not to participate in the SCGA Four-Ball Qualifier, teams with an average index of 10.0 or below will play in the A Flight, teams with an average index of 10.1 to 15.0 will play in the B Flight, and teams with an average index of 15.1 and above will play in the C Flight.

FOUR-MAN AB+CD TOURNAMENT

FORMAT: This is a single-flight, 18-hole event played by four-person teams and is open to all Club Members and Associate Members. Entrants will be ranked in order of their current handicap index, and divided into four groups: A Group, B Group, C Group, and D Group. The A Group will include the one-fourth of all entrants with the lowest current handicap indexes among all entrants, the B Group will include the one-fourth of the remaining entrants with the next lowest current handicap indexes, and so forth. One player from each group will be drawn at random to create the four-person team.

Each player will record his or her gross score for each hole. The best net score of the A and B Players entered for each hole will be added to the best net score of the C and D Players for each hole. The sum of the A or B plus the C or D score will count toward the team’s score for each hole, hence “AB Plus CD”). A player’s full course handicap will be applied to determine the player’s net scores. A Players will play from the blue tees, B and C Players will play from the green tees, and D Players will play from the white tees. All women will play from the silver tees. The order of finish among teams will be determined based upon the total net scores for all 18 holes, counting two holes per team per hole (i.e., one score from the A or B Player and one score from the C or D Player on each hole, for a total of 36 hole scores).

ELIGIBILITY: Open to ERMGC Members and Associate Members

POINTS CUP NET CHAMPIONSHIP
& FRIENDS & FAMILY OPEN

FORMAT: Entrants will be divided into two separate, concurrently run competitions as follows.

The eight Club Members in each Flight having earned the most points in the 2017-2018 Points Cup Championship Series of events (commencing in October 2018 and ending in September 2018) will be invited to play in the 2018 Points Cup Net Championship for their flight. Members meeting this criterion will be notified of their eligibility to play in the Points Cup Net Championships shortly after the conclusion of the September Club Net Championship Tournament and must confirm their participation no later than midnight, October 21st. No alternates will be invited to play in this competition due to the enhanced size of the field in each flight and the concurrent event being held on the same day. Points counting toward the 2018-2019 Points Cup Net Championships, in addition to prizes, will be awarded to entrants in each flight based upon order of finish.

Players not participating in the Points Cup Championship may enter to play in the Inaugural ERMGC Friends & Family Open. The Friends & Family Open is a two-person better ball event. Club Members not competing in the Points Cup Championship and Associate Members may team with another Club Member, another Associate Member, or a non-member guest. (If a Club Member or Associate Member would like to enter but does not have a partner, the Club will try to find a partner to fill out the team roster.) Each partner will record his or her gross score for each hole. The best net score between the two partners for each hole will count toward the team’s score for each hole. A player’s full handicap will be applied to determine net scores. If a player does not have a current SCGA-approved index, the player’s gross score will be used for the purposes of determining the team’s score for each hole, provided that, for six holes (three on the front nine and three on the back nine) selected at random by the Tournament Committee at the end of the round, the player’s score will be adjusted to a net score of par for those six holes. (Note: Birdies and eagles will be adjusted to par, too!) Men will play from the green tees and women will play from the silver tees. The order of finish among teams will be determined based upon the teams’ total net scores for all 18 holes. Points toward the 2018-2019 Points Cup Net Championships, in addition to prizes, will be awarded to all entrants in this competition based on the order of finish and number of teams.
