The NCGA, nor the facility, will be held liable for your personal actions.

FORMAT: Four-Ball Net
-Teams of two compete. Each player will play their own ball with the best net score between the teammates being counted on each hole. Teams with the lowest net totals in each flight will receive gift card money to the Golf Mart stores.
-Per USGA recommendations, men will receive 90% of their course handicap, women will receive 95%. A team that has a difference in course handicap amongst teammates of greater than 8 strokes will take an additional 10% reduction.
-An optional skins game will be offered for this event (payable at check in, cash only).
-This event will place teams in flights based on their July 1st handicap.
-USGA Rules of Golf apply during play.
- For both individual and team events, players will be assigned to different tees based on their age (55-64) and (65 and older). For individual events players will compete in flights within their respective age division, while for team events players will compete in flights (without age divisions) based on combined team handicap. Competitors within an age division (55-64; 65 and older) regardless of handicap index will play from the following yardage in respect to their gender: Men (55-64) – tees measuring between 5,700 – 6,100 yards, (65 and older) – tees measuring between 5,300 – 5,700 yards ; Women (55-64) – tees measuring between 5,000 -5,400, (65 and older): 4,700 -5,100 yards. Tee preferences that differ from a player’s tee assignment are allowed if submitted to and approved by Senior Series staff. All tee preferences must be submitted to staff no later than 5 days prior to the event.
-Players MUST be an active NCGA member to participate. NCGA tournaments are open to amateur golfers who are members of a current NCGA member club in good standing. The USGA’s definition of an amateur golfer is the standard of the NCGA. Participants must meet all the eligibility requirements for the event they are entering. Any member who has not established a current numeric handicap index (CI) is ineligible to win prizes or skins.
-You can register as an individual and you will play with other participants of similar ability. We will do the best we can to pair similarly skilled players together. If you have a specific request as to who to play with, please note it in registration.
-All events will require that participants display proper golf etiquette and behaviors. This would include no denim, no cut-off clothing, the removal of hats when inside facility buildings and no foul language. Players could be given further prohibitions as the club sees fit but those will be provided in the player e-mail. The NCGA does have the right to remove anyone for not abiding by these rules at any time. Being removed from property would result in the loss of all funds.
-The NCGA reserves the right to adjust any player’s handicap index for Senior Series events.
-The cancellation date is July 7th at 8:00 P.M. for the cancellation cost of $10. All cancellations need to be submitted by the player, online, through their registration account. Any cancellation after the deadline is subject to a loss of all funds, unless a replacement can be filled from the waiting list. The cancellation cost with a replacement after the deadline is $25.
