Walter & Olga Strand Junior/Senior City Championship

The 72nd annual Walter & Olga Strand Junior/Senior Chapman Scotch City Championship will be contested at Bartley Cavanaugh Golf Course on Saturday, September 26, 2020.

This tournament is open to all golfers with or without an established USGA handicap index. Juniors must be 18 years of age or younger, and the senior partner must be at least 15 years older than their junior partner. Each team must secure their own partner.

This is an 18-hole, 2-player team event. The competition will use a Chapman Scotch format (Hit, Switch and Choose). Complete rules will be explained on the day of play. There will be two divisions - a Handicap Division and a Callaway Division.

The Handicap Division will be for teams where both players have a current NCGA Handicap. The difference between the team member’s Indexes may not be more than 20. The Sacramento Golf Council has implemented the USGA Tournament Index rule for handicap flights. In plain terms, the same formula is applied, but only to the players tournament (T) scores. Both use the last 20 scores, with a sliding scale for fewer than 20. Players will play to the lower of their current NCGA or USGA Tournament Index. For players with an Handicap Index, the September 15, 2020 index will be used. The Callaway Division will be for teams with no NCGA Index or where only one team partner has an index.

Ties for the Championship will be broken by matching scorecards.

The entry fee is $99 per 2-person team, and includes green fee, tee prizes, power cart, lunch and awards. The field is limited to the first 50 team paid entries.

Register online using the link below. Please note that the senior (adult) partner must complete registration for the team.

The registration deadline is September 20, 2020.
