Individual Match Play Rules

The winner of each match is responsible for promptly reporting match results:

  1. Return your scorecard with winner and results clearly marked to the pro shop
  2. If you forget, email match results to bdgcnews@gmail.com
If you require any other assistance, contact bdgcnews@gmail.com.

There are three formats for individual match play competition: the Club Championship, Cup Matches and Senior Cup Matches. The Club Championship and Cup Matches are open to all members (and members can register for either or both). Members who are at least 50 years old as of January 1st are also eligible for Senior Cup Matches.

Please contact your opponents ASAP and play your matches by the posted deadlines! If extenuating circumstances require a request for an extension or your opponent does not respond to phone calls or emails, it is your responsibility to inform the Tournament Directors, Willl Barrett and Bob Cohn. The Tournament Directors can (1) grant an extension (2) award a match to the opponent (3) disqualify both players if neither has communicated with him and/or attempted to schedule a match. Matches should not be played during club Majors.

Club Championship Matches

Matches are played at scratch from the black tees. Anyone can enter the Club Championship. If more than 32 members register, the lowest handicap players will make the field. Payments will be collected for Club Championship after the field is finalized.
