$100. The fee includes your GHIN handicap for the year, your Colorado Golf Association membership, and you receive a 10% discount on merchandise in the golf shop.
2. What are the entry fees?
Each time you play, you will pay an entry fee for the event. The entry fee varies by event, but for most one-day weekend events, the entry fee is $35.
We offer an optional skins game for most events. The game is full field skins with gross and net payouts.

Prize money is paid out in golf shop credit to approximately the top 25% of the field/flight.
3. Are there any other costs?
You will pay your greens fees when you check-in. You can either pay the daily CGA fee, buy a discount punch card, or buy a season pass with CommonGround Golf Course.
If you choose to ride a cart, you will pay the cart fee when you check-in.
If you take a caddie, there is no direct fee for the caddie, but you may tip the caddie as appropriate.
4. How do event entries work?
Generally, 3 weeks before an event, automated invitations are sent from Golf Genius. Whether or not you get an invitation, you can access the Event Registration from Golf Genius, then "Tournament Info," then "Calendar, Information and Signups." You will pay your entry fee with a credit card when you register. Greens fees and cart fees are paid upon check-in for the event. Optional skins are due IN CASH when you check in on event day.
5. What happens if I registered and paid, but it turns out I can't play in an event?
We run our Club under the general premise that you should not enter an event unless you are 100% sure you can play. Before you register for an event, make sure your calendar is clear and you have a hall pass from your significant other. The Club does not refund any entry fees except in the event of a family or medical emergency.
6 . Do I get advanced tee time reservations?
Yes. As a CGA Member you can book 7 days in advance. Non-CGA members can book 6 days in advance.
7. When does Men's Club usually play?
Most of our season consists of one-day events on Saturdays. We have season-long Individual and Team Match-Play tournaments, a multi-day Member-Guest, a two day Club Championship, among other events.
8. How are flights determined?
Individual events are flighted by handicap into flights of approximately 20-24 players. This varies by the number of entries and other factors. Team events are usually split up evenly by the number of entries.
9. How are tee times determined?
Tee times vary through the season by flights so sometimes you will go early, sometimes you will late. We try to mix it up through the season so everyone gets a variety. Individual events on the "Flight Tee Time Rotations" tab in the Tournament Info area indicate which order flights will go that day. (example - High/Mid/Low means the high handicap flights will go first, the middle in the middle, and the low handicap flights will go out later that day.)
10. How do I register for an event and pay the entry fee?
There are two easy ways.
One is to click the link that is in the invitation e-mail that will be sent automatically when the registration for an event opens.
To self serve, when logged into Golf Genius (with your username/password or with the GGID for the season) go to "Tournament Info > Calendar, Information and Signups" The calendar is shown including the registraion open dates and times. If you are Not Playing you can indicate you wish to play and pay your entry fee.
11. How do I know if I am entered in an event?
Also once logged into Golf Genius, "Tournament Info > Calendar, Information and Signups" will tell you your status for a particluar event (either Playing or Not Playing)
