President’s Cup and Bridgewater Shield
The President’s Cup and Bridgewater Shield are match play events with an elimination round format played from the Red tees. The President’s Cup is singles match play and the Shield is a 2-person team (best ball) match play.
Sign up sheets are posted early in the season.
If you would like to play in the Bridgewater Shield but you do not have a partner, please contact the Match Play Coordinator (Judy Leonard) and she will try to find a partner for you.
Scoring is based on 80% of your handicap which must be up to date. Therefore, before play starts, you are required to have a minimum of 5 scores posted for the current calendar year. If you have played elsewhere through the winter, those scores should be posted.
Make sure you (& your partner) are available to play before the deadlines, as set by the tournament committee. You need to be available both weekdays and weekends. Matches must be finished by the deadlines because time limits between rounds are short. Failure to do so may result in disqualification unless special arrangements have been approved by the Match Play Coordinator.
It is the responsibility of the players to arrange a date for the match. As soon as you know your opponent(s), contact her (them) to set a date and a rain date.
Notify the Pro Shop a few days before your match so your score cards can be prepared by the Pro Shop. Based on the Rules of Golf, it is the player’s responsibility to verify the strokes on the cards are allotted correctly for match play. In the event of a tie, there will be a sudden death playoff, starting on the first hole.
