Encinitas Ranch GC,   Encinitas  CA

The beginning of our "Playoff Season" opened with a beautiful sunny, late Summer day, at Encinitas Ranch GC.   Players arrived early to warm up their swings, test the putting greens and to shake off any nerves as "Match Play" competition began.  Some players felt the increased competitive juices as they navigated their way through the course and battled their opponents.   In the end, players who were successful in winning their match added 300 points to their season points totals in their quest to insure they made it to the Top 16 so they could continue on in the playoffs.

Those players who didn't qualifiy for top player spots, found themselves competing in the "Player's Cup" division.   Players who were either assigned a playing opponent, or had a "card off" match play competition.   Winners would add 250 points.    All ties in both division would split the points.   Additionally all players would continue to compete for low gross and low net scores.

Congratulations to our low gross winners: 

Flight A - Ted Clinite (78)

Flight B-  Lee Fitzgerald  (85) 

Flight C - Darren Maglidt  (88)

Our low net winner is:   Darren Maglidt  who both posted a low net 63.

Below are the results:

Quest for the 2015 Seacoast Cup- This year will be been full of fun times on the golf course.  We have added a new dimension to our club’s monthly event play by having Match Play events beginning September 2015.  Twenty players will earn their way to this year’s match play event.  Points are earned by finishing well in both individual low gross and low net score postings.  Also points are earned in different team and individual events ranging from match play, 4 man team best ball, and 2 man best ball events.  Net Skins are also another category that allows players to add points to their monthly points.  

Also this year we have added additional "Major" events which will have increased value in scoring for that particular event.  These events will take place in April and July 2015.

Remember only those players who have an Official SCGA or USGA golf index qualify for low net play and compete in Seacoast Christian Golf Club Points System.   Players who participate in our events who do not have an official golf index / handicap, will be assigned a "Flight" depending on their level of play.  These players also may be assigned a course handicap and may participate and qualify for team net play points .  For information on how to obtain an official golf index contact Curtis Chan and visit : Membership and SCGA

Leader board -  We have now come to the end of our regular golf season. Our top 16 players have been determined . Our   leader board winner continues to be Jim Hopson who has put in a strong rounds these past few months and has proven he belongs in the top spot. Our next event will begin our "Playoff Season" which will stir up the competitive juices amongst our club's players. Note that the tournament committee has refined our playoff format and has laid out a fun filled, exciting, and competitive way for all players to showcase their golf skills and to determine who is worthy to hold the 2015 Seacoast Cup at the end of our golf season.

Seacoast Cup Playoff Season - (September - November).  If you have been playing in this golf group for over 5 years then you know that after August, our playoff season begins.  Match Play format is instituted for our rounds, in addition to our low gross/low net play.  With the added element of "match play," players get to stir up their competitive juices and bring out their game faces to bring out the best golf they've ever played.   Many players have shown their "A" game, while others find how difficult it is to play golf when everything is on the line.

This year, the Golf Tournament Committee has reviewed the last few seasons and have instituted a few new elements to our "Playoff Season."  If a player has sufficient points to be in the "Top 20" then he will qualify to participate in the Seacoast Cup - "Champions" bracket, which will determine our club champion.  Below is the playoff calendar of events.   Note that events will take place every 2 weeks until November.

1. No more "Bye" weeks for our top 4 players.   All players will continue to earn points in our playoff season.  The "Top 20" and "Wild Card" rounds will take the top 20 and top 16 players (total points) respectively.  This will allow players to possibly lose a match, but still continue in the playoffs if they have the points to sustain their level to be part of the top 16.  Only when we get to the Quarter Finals will there be eliminations for losing a match.

2. Players will continue to reply back to event invite emails to obtain their spots for the event.   If a "Top 20" player desires not to participate in an upcoming event, then the next seeded player (#19) will then be given the opportunity to play in the "Champions" bracket.

3. "Match Play" points will have an increased value per playoff event.   The deeper one goes into the playoffs, the more value for a match play win.  For the "Top 20" and "Wild Card" events,  players who's match ends in a TIE will split the earned points.  Tie matches in subsequent events will have a "tie-breaker" sudden death playoff...see below.

4. "Player's Cup Bracket" - for those who don't qualify or have fallen out of the "Championship Cup" bracket, your points total will transfer into the "Player's Bracket."   In the Player's Bracket, players will be matched up with other players in the same bracket to have match play competition.  Points will also be earned for Wins and Ties.   Value for Player's Bracket wins are 250 points.  All Players who fall short of making it to the Semi-Final Championship bracket qualify for the "Player's Bracket."  There will be no TIE breakers for tie matches in the Player's Bracket.  Points will be split between the two players.
