CAPE SUMMER CLASSIC 2023
It is hard to believe that another season is upon us. Thank you to those that participated last year, and especially those that hosted our players. Congrats to the champions Chris Tufts & Mike Van Cleave!!!
Deadline to sign up for this year’s event will be April 15th
Depending upon number of entrants, the following schedule would be followed. It is important to make the commitment to get these matches played on schedule in fairness to all participants involved.
(Note: this allows more time in the Round 1, as all participants will be playing. Round 3 allows more time, as summer stress conditions can make it difficult to schedule play. Other consideration, at the discretion of the Tournament Chair).

As always, USGA rules will govern https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rule-23.html We would prefer that teams consist of at least (1) Superintendent, but teams can consist of any GCSACC members. Based on the number of entries, the Tournament Committee will create brackets based off current USGA handicaps.
Per the USGA recommendation on Match Play Four Ball at a 90% handicap allowance. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/handicapping/roh/Content/rules/Appendix%20C%20Handicap%20Allowances.htm
**Using the GHIN app, you can easily accomplish this. Under Handicap Calculator. Simply select course; select your playing partners; under handicap allowance select 90%. It will calculate it for you**
- All strokes will be played off the lowest handicap in the group
- All players must have a current USGA/GHIN handicap, otherwise play at a 0
- The winners of each match, will be responsible for reporting the results to the Tournament Chair
- $50 per team, 50% of purse goes to S&R Fund, 50% to the winners
As always, the point of this competition is to have fun. So, keep it light out there and enjoy each other’s company.
Thanks for playing & Good Luck!!!
