Club Championship

Club Championship

Competitive league for those who want to battle it out

For those that are a little more competitive, you can compete in the Club Championship. The winners will be decided based on results from the monthly social day events as well as club tournaments. To be eligible for the Club Championship you must be a SDGC member and compete in a minimum of 6 events (social days and/or club tournaments)

There are two league tables – one based on raw score results and one based on handicap results. Points will be allocated based on player’s position in social day events as follows:

ROUND PLACINGCHAMPIONSHIP POINTS (per player)
1 (first)10
2 (second)6
3 (third)4
4 (fourth)2
5 (fifth)1

If there is a tie for first place, the winner will be determine by a play-off (format to be determined by the league director).

If there is a tie for any other position, all championship points for the tied places will be summed and divided between the number of tied players. For example, a 3-way tie for second place would see each player receive 4 points, i.e., (6+4+2)/3 = 4.

In club tournaments, any member who wins their division will score 5 bonus points for the raw score league.

The Club Championship will conclude after the final social day event in December. Prizes will be awarded for the raw score and handicap leagues as well as a few other special prizes. In the event of a points table tie, the position will be decided by greater number of event wins. If still tied, greater number of second places, etc.

Championship Skins

A special event will be held on the afternoon of the December social day following the conclusion of the Club Championship. 5 players will qualify for an 18-hole skins event – the prize pool calculated as a percentage of fees from the social day events (and published on the web site home page).

The 5 qualifiers will be:

  1. Raw score championship winner
  2. Raw score championship runner-up
  3. Raw score championship second runner-up
  4. Raw score female champion
  5. Handicap championship winner

If any qualifier is not present, the next position in the championship table will be selected.

The event will follow standard skins rules and each hole will be worth 5.55% of the total skins prizemoney pool. In the event of a tie on the final hole, the final skin will be equally split between the tied players OR if the tied players mutually agree, they can continue playing from hole 1 until there is an outright skins winner.
