RMGC TEAM PLAY 2021
RMGC is forming its team roster for the 12-person Match Play Tournament, sponsored by NCGA. The Team will be made up of individuals who like to compete and enjoy the pressure of NET format play. If this is something you could see yourself participating, RMGC is looking for you.
A member of ANY Rossmoor Golf Club with a NCGA recognized Handicap Index is eligible, with no gender restrictions for this interclub activity. The Men’s club has never had a lady golfer join the 12 “Person” team, but if you like competition, please join us.
The Team Match Play is made up of 4 golf clubs, assigned to a POD by the NCGA. Each club will play the other clubs in their POD twice, once at their own club and once at the visiting club. Twelve players from each club compete in each match. The exact scoring of each match is an accumulation of wins and the team with the greatest number of points is declared the winner. Each POD winner progresses to post-season playoffs to determine the Club Championship team. All players will use their current handicap index for calculation of their course handicap for any given match. Per NCGA rules of competition, players with a current handicap index higher than 18.4 are eligible to compete but must play to the maximum allowed course handicap of 18.4.
Matches will be played on Thursdays. This year our POD consists of Antioch Golf Club (Lonetree course), Concord Golf Club (Diablo Creek golf course), Oakhurst Country Club and Rossmoor. The match dates are June 3, 17 and 24, July 8 and 22 and August 5 with playoffs starting on August 26.
This is self-funded activity. There will be a $20 membership fee to join and a $10 match fee for each of the twelve participants selected for a specific match. There are no green fees charged for matches and carts are included. The moneys collected are utilized to fund the NCGA entry fee, Rossmoor room rental for post-match festivities and food and beverage costs associated with hosting the visiting clubs.
It is the hope of RMGC that the above information will provide you with an understanding of the 12-Man Team Match Play Tournament. Normally, there is a pre-season social get together. Due to Covid restrictions and need for social distancing concerns, the activity won’t be possible.
The mission of the Rossmoor Men’s Golf Club (RMGC) is to provide an excellent golf excellent golf experience while at the same time promoting fellowship and camaraderie among its membership.
