SCHEDULING

The CGA recommends the groups work out the schedule amongst themselves, while still adhering to the Team Interclub deadlines mentioned below. This will hopefully allow for more flexibility and ease the course, players, and captains alike.

Match 2 – June 30

Match 3 – July 31

Playoffs Begin – August 1

Championship Match – October 12

However, Team Captains may mutually agree to use a different yardage. Tees to be used must be agreed upon and acknowledged by all Captains in the group prior to the start of the season. Tee markers should be placed so that the course plays to its rated length. Flights A and B are not required to play from the same tee markers.
