Members must have an established handicap to qualify to play in a Special Event except for the Fewest Putts event. Open Play tee times will be available immediately following a Special Event for members that are not qualified to play in the event. A non-qualified member playing with a Special Events group must record their score on a separate scorecard to insure that the score may be used in determining the member’s handicap. Descriptions and rules for each event are located on other webpages
The Special Events Committee reviews all event scorecards. Members whose scorecards are illegible or filled out improperly will be disqualified from the event. A member’s score will be checked only when in contention for points. An overstated score will not be changed. Scores not totaled or understated will disqualify that member. Members listed on the scorecard other than those assigned by the Pairing/Tee Time Committee or reassigned by the Pro Shop will disqualify that member and their team in team events. The Special Events Committee is responsible for determining the winners and runners-up and for calculating the points earned. The names of all winners and runners-up and the points awarded for an event along with the year-to-date points are posted on the SGC/CRC bulletin boards and League’s website.
League registration fees provide the cash for Special Event prize money. The League uses a system documented in the Special Events Committee Guide to award points to the winners and runners-up of Special Events. Points are awarded to the members having the best rounds (lowest scores) in each Special Event. The League Committee determines the dollar value per point before the season starts.
All Special Event prize money is paid to members at the Awards Banquet. Prize money winners who are not present at the Awards Banquet must claim their money at the CRC Senior Center prior to November 1st with a current ID. Unclaimed prize money will be forfeited and will revert to the League treasury.
Trophies are awarded to all first place Special Event winners except for the Scramble event. Special Event trophy winners except for the S&H Classic have the option to receive $10 cash instead of a trophy. The winner of the Special Event must notify the Awards/Trophy Committee if they want to receive $10 cash instead of a trophy as soon as possible after the Special Event and prior to the S&H Classic. Trophies (or $10 cash) are awarded at the Awards Banquet. Winners who are not present at the Awards Banquet must claim their trophy or cash at the CRC Senior Center prior to November 1st with a current ID. Unclaimed trophies or cash will be forfeited and will revert to the League.
Sign Up and Show Up.
Members who sign up to play in a Special Event and then do not show up negatively affect the qualification status of the other members of their assigned group or team. Please don't sign up for a Special Event unless you are totally committed to play in the event. If there are unforeseen circumstances that prevent you from playing in a Special Event you signed up to play in, please call the golf course Pro Shop as soon as possible.
A Special Event is official and points are awarded if 50% or more of the members who signed up to play complete their round. If less than 50% of the members who signed up to play complete their round, the event is cancelled and rescheduled for the following week. The Scramble is the only event that will be cancelled for "cart path only" days and rescheduled for the following week. Open Play golf will be available if the Scramble event is cancelled. If a Special Event is cancelled, the League will notify the SGC/WG Pro Shop and post a notice on the League's website. League members who want to play in a rescheduled event must sign up again. If a Special Event is cancelled two weeks in a row (except for the Scramble event which is three weeks in a row), the event will not be rescheduled and the money designated for that event will go toward the door prizes at the Awards Banquet.
