Tournament Information

If you are looking for a casual, fun day of golf with friends and would like to compete for great prizes at a professionally run event, look no farther than the CSGA One Day Tournament Series! This popular series provides men and women several opportunities to play premier golf courses throughout the state, and earn pro shop merchandise prizes in either the gross or net category of your division.  Play one, two or as many events as your schedule will allow, there is no minimum requirement.

Depending if you are younger or older than age 55, you’ll register for an event in either the Open or Senior division, named after CSGA honorees, Dick Tettelbach and Dick Siderowf respectively. Entry into a tournament in either division is $75 per player. Within the Siderowf division, there is a forward tee option at most courses that seniors can choose to play and participate in the net competition only.

Tee times become available online at 7:00 a.m. on the open registration date associated with the event, about thirteen days prior, and run from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Registrations close about six days before the event date, however, if space permits, we will accept late registrations up to and including the morning of the tournament to accommodate last minute schedule changes. Due to the popularity of the series, it is recommended that you sign up on the registration open date for the best tee time availability; most venues will book up completely on opening day.

During the online registration period, players select their tee time and sign up as a solo player, twosome, threesome or foursome before paying and confirming their entry. Golf carts are required and are included with your entry fee. Food is available at the various venues for purchase either at the clubhouse or at the snack shop located on the course.

Finish in the top fifteen at an event and earn points toward the season ending One Day Player of the Year contest, sponsored by Chris Cote’s Golf Shops. A top five finish in a Gross division will earn you points toward the overall CSGA Player of the Year program rewarding performance in both the One Day tournaments and our Championship Series.

Finish in the top five including ties in the gross or net open (Tettelbach) or senior (Siderowf) division at any One Day tournament and you're eligible to participate at the beautiful Shennecossett Golf Course for our showcase invitational event, the Al Acker One Day Championship in early October. After the last regular One Day tournament, all of the eligible qualifiers in each division will be ranked using their highest One Day Player of the Year points accrued in the 2021 season from either the net or gross category.  The first 54 players on the ranked list of eligible players for each division (Tettelbach and Siderowf) will be extended an invitation to play and register for the One Day Championship at the $85 fee.  Additional qualifiers on the ranked list for each division (Tettelbach and Siderowf) will be alternates, invited to play and register if players decline the invitation and space becomes available.

What do you need in order to play? 

An official CSGA/GHIN handicap and an $75 entry fee
