Once registration closes, a single elimination bracket will be created. Participants will be grouped by their address/location and their handicap. The bracket will be sent out when the first-round matches begin. Players will be given a timeframe for each round to schedule and play their match against their opponent. The matches will be played as net match play.
The two players will agree on the date and course to play within the given timeframe for each round. Green fees will be the responsibility of the players. They will keep progressing through the bracket until they reach the semi-finals.
The semi-finals and final rounds will be scheduled in December (dates TBD) and expenses will be covered by the NCGA. The semi-finals will be played at Poppy Hills GC and the final round will be played at Pebble Beach GL. The two players that advance to the final round will also receive a one-night stay at the Pebble Beach Resort.
Registration will open on January 16 at 8:00 am PT and close March 19 or once the tournament is full. Players on the waitlist will still have a chance to be added if the waitlist reaches a certain number. Players on the waitlist are not charged until they are added to the event.
