One Day Tournament Information

If you are looking for a casual, fun day of golf with friends and would like to compete for great prizes at a professionally run event, look no farther than the CSGA One Day Tournament Series! This popular series provides men and women several opportunities to play premier golf courses throughout the state, and earn pro shop merchandise prizes in either the gross or net category of your division. Play one, two or as many events as your schedule will allow, there is no minimum requirement.

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. Entry into a tournament in either division is $85 per player. Within the Siderowf division, there is a forward tee option at most courses that seniors may choose to play and participate in the net competition only.

In 2023 there will be two additional Siderowf (55+), and two Tettelbach (Under 55) only events combined with two Women’s One Day events. Women are eligible to participate in any regular One Day Series tournament, however, there will be a separate women’s competition at the two Women’s One Day events. Registration for the two Women’s One Day events opens March 1st and links can be found on the website menu bar under One Day Series/Women’s One Day Event RegistrationNew this season, the top gross and net winners from the two Women’s events will be invited to the Al Acker One Day Championship at Lake of Isles in October, 2023.

For the men, 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. 

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.

If the event is not full, registration will remain open for 3-4 days, and a wait list is determined in time sequence order for players who did not successfully secure a tee time. As registered players withdraw from the tournament, the first person on the wait list is contacted via email.

New this season, the wait list will expire approximately five days before the event at 5:00 pm (for example, Thursday at 5:00 p.m. before a Monday or Tuesday event). Open tee times due to withdrawals after the Thursday deadline will not be communicated to the wait list participants. Tee times shown on the CSGA website will be updated periodically to reflect any last minute openings and players wishing to play on a stand-by basis may email the CSGA staff as of 7:00 a.m. the morning of the event. Players are also welcome to drive to the course in hopes of securing a potential opening.

The wait list expiration date is also the deadline to withdraw from the event and receive a full refund. Any late withdrawals received after that deadline will receive a $25 refund.

During the online registration period, players sign up as a Single Player, or use the Multiple Player registration page to sign up as a twosome, threesome or foursome before paying and confirming their entry. 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 to increase your chances of securing a tee time. Also, 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.

When the tee sheet is completely full, if you have not secured a spot, click on “Register for Waitlist” at the bottom of the page. You need only click on the “Register for Waitlist” button on one of the registration pages as the entries from both pages are compiled into a combined list. 

Players who finish in the top five including ties in the gross or net open (Tettelbach) or senior (Siderowf) division at any One Day tournament are eligible to participate in the season-ending invitational, the Al Acker One Day Championship. After the last regular One Day tournament, all of the eligible qualifiers in each division will be ranked using their highest One Day Player of the Year points accrued in the 2023 season from either the net or gross category. 

The first 50 players on the ranked list of eligible players for each division (Tettelbach and Siderowf) will be extended an invitation to play and register for the One Day Championship. Additional qualifiers on the ranked list for each division (Tettelbach and Siderowf) will be alternates, invited to play and register if players decline the invitation and space becomes available. In 2023, this Championship will be contested at Lake of Isles on Tuesday, October 10th.
