CGA Interclub Playoffs Update - Round 1 Complete

Regular Interclub Playoff Brackets 2019 | SENIOR Interclub Playoff Brackets 2019

With one 1st round playoff match to go (scheduled for Sunday), advancing teams are preparing for round two in both leagues while a few senior teams have made it to round three.

Several captains have requested extensions beyond the target date for various reasons. Extensions are granted depending on the number of available days and/or weekends before the next target date. Weather related issues have and will also cause extensions. In any event, we must be down to the “final four” teams in each league by October 19 for the Seniors and November 11 for the Regular league. When requesting an extension, it’s recommended to contact the next potential opponent and set that date as well. NOTE: Not having the right team players available is not a valid reason to re-schedule a match. 

Other Notables:

  • Don’t forget to put the MATCH DATE in TPP! Both captains need to do this for the play at their site before submitting players scores and match results.
  • Once an initial playoff match date is agreed upon by both teams, any request to reschedule by one team depends on the ability of their opponent and the calendar. If necessary the CGA Interclub committee will determine the outcome of an unplayed match due to calendar restraints.
  • Remember to use the “Refresh Handicap Indexes” button in TPP to update players handicaps prior to a match. Indexes are updated automatically on the 15th and last day of each month in GHIN. Both captains should hit the refresh button when lineups were set in TPP prior to the 15th, or 30th/31st with a match date after the 15th or 30th/31st.
  • As travel time increases for your next round, neutral sites may be used. We can assist you with setting tees in TPP for a neutral course.
  • Win or lose, please input results immediately in order for the next round to be scheduled.
