2017 Fall Finish: New 2017-2018 Points Cup Championship and New Gold and Silver Circle Memberships

The ERMGC Board of Directors is pleased to announce the following new benefits to the Club’s tournament players, effective immediately and applicable to the “2017 Fall Finish”:

•2017-2018 Points Cup Championship:
Think you are out of the running for the ERMGC Points Cup Championship? Think again! In addition to receiving points toward the 2017 Points Cup Championship, participants in the three remaining 2017 ERMGC tournaments will be awarded points toward the new 2017-2018 Points Cup Championship. In a manner similar to the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Championship, ERMGC will begin observing a “wraparound” Points Cup season. The 2017-2018 Points Cup Championship will start with the October 2017 All-Member Invitational Tournament and end with the September 2018 Club Championship. The top eight 2017-2018 Points Cup finishers in each flight will receive an invitation to play in the October 2018 Points Cup Championship Tournament, which will kick off the 2018-2019 Points Cup Championship season.

As the new wraparound season is commenced, the 2017 Points Cup Championship will continue to its conclusion under the preexisting 2017 Rules of Competition. Participants in the three remaining 2017 ERMGC events will receive points toward the 2017 Points Cup Championship and the top four finishers in each flight will receive an invitation to play in the 2017 Points Cup Championship Tournament held on December 10, 2017. Thus, points for the three remaining 2017 events will be awarded concurrently for the 2017 Points Cup Championship and the new 2017-2018 Points Cup Championship season.

•Gold and Silver Circle Memberships:

In appreciation of our most loyal Club Members, the ERMGC Board of Directors will award Gold Circle Memberships to Club Members who enter ten or more tournaments during a calendar year. At the conclusion of each year, Gold Circle Members will receive an article of Encinitas Ranch logo apparel identifying them as a Gold Circle Member. Based on play through the September 2017 Club Championship, the following members are currently candidates for a 2017 Gold Circle Membership:

Lou Kessing (9 events), Ron Peterson (9), Mark Grassi (9)
William Gladstone (9), Eric Diaz (8), Dennis Aiken (8)
Paul Latchford (8), Peter Sertic (8), Don Lucarelli (7)

For Club Members who enter between six and nine tournaments in a calendar year, the ERMGC Board of Directors will award Silver Circle Memberships to these players. Silver Circle Members who renew their club membership in the following year will receive free entry into one ERMGC tournament of the member’s choosing in the following year, worth up to $30 in fee waivers. Based on play through the September 2017 Club Championship, the following Club Members (in addition to the Club Members named above) are currently candidates for a 2017 Silver Circle Membership:
