How are the tournaments flighted?

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.

What tees and yardage will I play?

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.

Do I have to sign up as a foursome?

 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.

Can I request to play with a particular person(s)?

 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.

Can I walk or have a caddie?
