What are CSGA One Day Tournaments?
One Day Tournaments allow golfers of all ages and abilities to participate in a casual and fun atmosphere with incredible prizes at an affordable price. All events are open to any golfer who holds an active CSGA/GHIN handicap index from a CSGA member club.
The $75 entry fee for each One Day tournament includes:
- Green fees
- Golf cart
- Prizes (given to the top four finishers in each division)
- The Top 10 finishers, including ties, in each gross and net division will receive points for the One Day Tournament Player of the Year, sponsored by Chris Cote's Golf Shop.
- The top two finishers, including ties, in each gross division will also receive Tettelbach or Siderowf Player of the Year points.
Registration for One Day Tournaments opens six (6) days prior to the event. Online and phone registration will open at 7:00 a.m.
CSGA members may sign up online via the Reservation System as either an individual or as part of a group. Participants may only pay by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit cards when signing up online.
Participants may also sign up by calling the CSGA office at (860) 257-4171.
CSGA One-Day tournaments are open to men and women of all ages and abilities. Participants should have a current CSGA/USGA Handicap Index established at a CSGA Member Club.
All One Day Tournaments are flighted by age. The Tettelbach flight consists of golfers age 54 and below, and the Siderowf flight consists of golfers age 55 and above. All competitors will compete in both the gross and net divisions; however, no competitor can win more than one prize per event.
The tees to be used will be determined by the overall length and difficulty of the golf course. Typical yardage for the Tettebach (Open) Division is 6,400 yards, and typical yardage for the Siderowf (Senior) division is 6,000 yards. The CSGA tries to emphasize fun with these events, and we also try to set up golf courses to help with pace of play issues.
No. You may sign up as a single, group of two, group of three or group of four. Generally the groupings are made in fours, so if you have less than four in your group, we will try to group you with other people based on similar Course Handicaps.
Yes, if you know of someone else in the field and you want to be grouped together, notify the CSGA office of this request. When signing up online, you will be asked for any grouping requests. You may request specific groupings at that time.
All players must ride in the cart at all times, and players are not permitted to have a caddie during CSGA One Day Tournaments. These policies are strictly enforced for pace of play reasons.
The top four (4) finishers in the Gross and Net Divisions of the Tettelbach and Siderowf Divisions will receive prizes in the form of pro-shop credit, redeemable at the host club. The winner and runner-up in each division of the Chris Cote's One Day Player of the Year Race will also receive prizes.
The top five finishers, including ties, in each division earn an inviation to the season ending One Day Championship held at Shennecossett Golf Club in Groton, Conn.
The CSGA will be awarding a One Day Tournament Player of the Year for both Regular and Senior Divisions, Gross and Net. Players will accumulate points based on their finishes in One Day Tournaments throughout the season. A total of $3,000 in merchandise certificates to Chris Cote's Golf Shop will be awarded to the One Day Player of the Year and Runner Up in each division.
Yes. The Rules of Golf govern play at CSGA One-Day Tournaments but your knowledge of the Rules should not deter you from participating.
