13th Annual Cal Cup Matchplay EventMay 3 - May 5, 2019Haggin Oaks Golf Complex, Sacramento, CA
Welcome to the Santa Barbara Chapter 2019 Cal Cup webpage. We're still collecting information on this event, so please visit often to see updates on this event.
The 2019 Cal Cup Matchplay Event will be held at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA. Haggin Oaks was established in 1932 and offers two 18-hole courses, a lighted and automated driving range, a nine-hole putt-putt course, an indoor/outdoor Player Performance Studio for club-fitting and lessons, a Super Store stocked with fashions and gear. There’s a whole building with nothing but golf shoes and the selection of clothes, accessories and clubs in the pro shop is pretty amazing. Worth the trip just to visit the Super Store - the #1 Public Golf Shop in the United States!
To gear up for this event, we need to put together a competitive team to bring back the Cup to Santa Barbara. In order to do this and give all members the opportunity to participate, we are having three qualifying rounds (January 6th, February 3rd and March 3rd.) For those interested, you do not have to play in each qualifying event, as we only need one scorecard, however, if you play on all three Sundays, you have the opportunity to use your best score.
*Please note, per Cal Cup policy, the maximum allowable handicap index for a team member is 32, so this will apply for the qualifying rounds.
The field will be split into two fields based on your handicap index, as we have learned through the years that it’s important to have a well-rounded team. The format for the qualifying rounds is Stroke Play Net. The 6 lowest Net scores in each flight will advance to represent Santa Barbara – 12 members, plus 2 alternates. We will announce the team the first week in March.
The Event Fee Structure for a Tournament Competitor has not been determined, but we have been told to expect to pay $325, which includes two rounds of golf at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex on Saturday and Sunday mornings with cart, range balls, the Friday evening Reception, Saturday and Sunday lunch buffets, and the Cal Cup awards presentation.
As always, the Cal Cup will have two formats of Team Play on Saturday, Four Ball (Better Ball) and Foursomes (Alternate Shot) and Sunday will be individual competition. Each team member is required to play both competitive rounds.
All interested players are required to pay in full for the Cal Cup event prior to playing in a qualifying round (pay to play.) If you do not qualify, you will be refunded the Cal Cup entry fee by March 22, 2019. As a chapter, we are required to secure our spot in the Cal Cup event in advance, so these fees will be applied. We anticipate being able to offer a non-competitive format on both Saturday and Sunday and those players will have an opportunity to play a round on both courses.
Your 2019 Cal Cup Captains are Marilyn Freeman and Lori Kibbie who are available to answer any questions or help with anything you may need in regards to the Cal Cup Event.
So if you’re ready to bring the Cup back home to Santa Barbara, it’s time to REGISTER NOW! Don’t forget to sign up the qualifying rounds, the first one is January 6th.
