1. Handicap: Your gross score, after computing the Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) will be entered to determine your handicap. Handicaps will be available at every tournament for review and also upon request of the Flight Chairman. The CVGA Tournaments are played as handicapped stroke tournaments divided into 5 flights according to individual handicap determined by utilizing the 10 best of the last 20 scores, based on the rating of the course being played, and 96% of the differential of the scores used. The CVGA Tournament will operate under the USGA rules of golf.2. Eligibility: Only persons with a CVGA Handicap of 5 or greater, for the rating of the course being played, are eligible to play in the tournament that day. First time golfers must provide proof of a handicap of 5 or greater either with a USGA or WSGA card or with written proof of home course handicap, signed by the club pro or owner. When an established CVGA player’s CVGA handicap has fallen less than 5 for all ratings to be played and/or as determined by the Rules/Handicap Committee, the player will be eligible to play two more tournaments. If at the conclusion of the two tournaments the handicap is still below the allowed handicap the player will not be eligible to play any further flight tournaments until he raises the handicap to 5 or above. The CVGA will have a single handicap for those golfing in the seniors and flights. If a golfer’s flight handicap drops below 5, the golfer can golf the senior tournaments, providing you are 50 years of age or older until you get the handicap above 5 after which time the golfer will be eligible to golf the flight tournaments3. Flight Handicaps: 1st - (5-9), 2nd - (10-14), 3rd - (15-18), 4th - (19-22), 5th - (23 +)4. Point Scoring: Points will be awarded for 1st (6), 2nd (4), 3rd (3), 4th (2), 5th (1). There will be no tie breaking during the regular Flight season. When a player moves from one flight to the next, the points earned in the flight vacated stay there. New for 2014 there will be overall point standings. It will add all the points earned for the entire year including whichever flight the points were from. If at the end of the season the player's points in the previous flight are enough to earn an award in the flight he left, he is still eligible for that award. Points earned at the Championship Tournament will be used towards the season point totals.5. Championship Tournament: Only players with points from the regular season may score additional points in the championship. Points earned at the Championship Tournament will be used towards the regular season point’s totals. If a golfer does not have a current CVGA handicap he or she may play in the tournament for the greens fee and CVGA fee. ($27.00) They will not be eligible for any prize money or points.6. All flight tournaments will be played winter rules.7. All tournaments will be played from the white tees. (Mid-Range)8. Tournament Protocol: In the event of bad weather once the tournament has started, it is up to the course to decide if the play can continue. If all participants have completed the first 9 holes and the course deems play unable to continue, then the tournament may be called as a 9 hole tournament with points and pay out based on the first nine holes scores. The nine hole scores will not be entered for handicap calculations.
