Canceled - portland gC tettelbach division & women's One Day Tournament presented by Chris Cote's Golf Shop
The CSGA One Day Tournament Series sponsored by Chris Cote’s Golf Shop offers professionally run competitive events in a season long program. Play one, two or as many events as your schedule will allow, there is no minimum requirement. This popular series provides opportunities to play premier golf courses throughout the state, sign up with friends and select your preferred tee times. Competitions have gross and net categories and players earn pro shop merchandise prizes in their division. The series also has a point driven One Day Player of the Year contest, and an end of the season Championship for eligible qualifiers.
Due to the popularity of the series, it is recommended that you sign up on the registration open date for the best tee time availability since most venues will book up completely on the morning of opening day. Golf carts are required most often and are included with your entry fee. Food is usually available for purchase either at the clubhouse or at the snack shop located on the course.
Entry into a tournament in either division is $85 per player and players must have an active USGA Handicap Index from a CSGA member club not exceeding 23.0 on the tournament registration open date. CSGA member clubs may be “green-grass” clubs, our online CSGA E-club or our USGA-CSGA online club. Depending if you are younger or older than age 55, you’ll register for an event in either the Open or Senior division, named after CSGA honorees, Dick Tettelbach and Dick Siderowf respectively. Within the Siderowf division, there is a forward tee option at most courses that seniors may choose and participate in the net competition only.
Tee times become available online in the One Day Registration system at 7:00 a.m. on the open registration date associated with the event. Registration opens approximately twelve days prior, and starting times are usually available from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Players sign up as a solo player on the Single Player registration page, or as twosomes, threesomes or foursomes on the Multiple Registration page before paying and confirming their entry. If the event is not full, registration will remain open for 3-4 days. Once it is full, a wait list is determined in time stamped order for all players who did not successfully secure a tee time and clicked on “Register for Waitlist” at the bottom of the page.
We recommend making sure your profile and password information is correct beforehand so you can log in promptly at 7:00AM with no system constraints. Remember to refresh your screen often and when you see the tee times “Held”, wait a few minutes and see if any slots are released as “Available” after that individual has finished their transaction.
Players on the wait list will be notified of any withdrawals in order and given 24 hours to respond. On the Friday before the event, final pairings will be updated and communicated to the players. After this point, additional players who wish to participate, including those previously on the wait list, may check the online pairings starting at 5:00pm the day before the event to see if any spots have become available. If so, they may email the CSGA with their request at that time. Email requests will be treated on a first come, first served basis and added to the field in that sequence.
In order for a player to receive a full refund, they must notify the CSGA no later than 5:00pm on the Thursday prior to the tournament on Monday/Tuesday of the following week. After that, no refunds will be provided unless there is a medical emergency.
In the event that a tournament is cancelled due to unplayable course conditions related to inclement weather, all registered players will receive a full refund. Communications will be sent to players via email as soon as a decision is made on the morning of the tournament, about 6:30am, or possibly the day before depending on the severity of the weather forecast. Banner messages will scroll at the top of the tournament portal with weather delays, or cancellations. Every effort will be made to reschedule that tournament in the remaining weeks of the season.
