General Tournament Procedures and Management
Tournaments are managed with extensive support from Watters Creek officials utilizing the USGA Tournament Management Golf Genius System. WCSGA uses Golf Genius software to simplify tournament signup and to provide tee sheets (pairings) which can be viewed on the Golf Genius website. Tournaments will be flighted based on the total number of players. The maximum number in a flight will be 25.
Upon completion of play, scorecards are turned in to Watters Creek officials who will check scores and post scores to the system. The system calculates winners of each flight and the dollar amount won. Tournament results are available for viewing on the Golf Genius website immediately upon completion of play.
Member Account Balance
A Player’s winnings are credited to an account in the member’s name, maintained by the Wattters Creek staff. These may be used to purchase Pro Shop merchandise, range balls, food purchases from the grill and green fees for rounds with individual starting times. Not available for shotgun starts.
All balances will be available by contacting the pro shop, either in person or by phone, or by e-mailing Matt Sipko
Refer “MEMBERS” in the Main Links section.
