    2021 Miami Valley Match Play Championship

    Get a partner and get ready for the third annual, MVGCSA Match Play Championship!

    Pods will be drawn on Thursday, March 18th. Additional details to come.

    NEW FOR 2021!!!

    Deadlines to play matches. The following rules will be in place to encourage teams to get their matches done on time...

    • Teams must play at least one match by June 1st; if a team has not completed one match by June 1st, they will be "fined" one point
    • Teams must play at least two matches by July 15th; if a team has not completed two matches by July 15th, they will be "fined" an additional two points
    • All pod matches must be completed by August 15th

    2021 General Format and Rules:

    1. Players must be active members of the MVGCSA with dues paid for the year
    2. Players must have an established handicap through GHIN/ World Handicap System
    3. There may only be one Affiliate member per team and only the winning team from 2020 may have the same partner from the year before
    4. There will be a blind draw for teams to be placed into pods. Each team will need to play the other teams within their pod to earn points (See below for the point system). The team with the most points in their pod advances to the playoffs.
    5. Each player will receive 85% of their course handicap for their matches (contact Brian Laurent if you need assistance with your adjusted handicap)
    6. EACH PLAYER SHOULD RECEIVE ALL OF THEIR STROKES. DO NOT PLAY OFF OF LOW BALL.
    7. Upon completion of your round, players must post their scores as TOURNAMENT scores according to the rules of the USGA. If the event committee is made aware of any player not posting their score within two days of their match, the player may be required to play any upcoming matches at 50% of their handicap until all scores are posted.
    8. Teams have until August 15, 2021 to complete their pod matches
    9. Once pod play is complete, the playoffs will be played as standard Match Play

    POINT SYSTEM

    Teams will play for points in each match. Each hole is worth one point. Points are earned as follows:

    Win a hole = 1 point
    Tie a hole = 1/2 point
    Lose a hole = 0 points

    Additional Format and Rules Information

    1. The number of teams entered will determine the number of pods. No less than four and no more than 5 teams will be in each pod
    2. In the case that a match cannot be completed because of weather, the remaining holes will be scored as halved. A minimum of 14 holes must already be completed in order for this rule to take effect. If 14 holes are not played, teams are encouraged to "pick up where they left off"
    3. In the event of a tie within a pod at the end of pod play, ties will be broken based on,
      1. Head to head points
      2. Most points scored in a single match
    4. In the case where there are not 4 or 8 pods, wild card spots will be used to complete the final playoff bracket. Tie breakers for the wild card spots will be determined once the final number of teams are determined.

    The event committee does its best to predict any and all scenarios, but if a scenario arises that was not accounted for, the committee will determine the best possible solution. In the case that a committee member is impacted by the decision, they will recuse themselves from the decision making process.

    MVGCSA/OSN SPRING SCRAMBLE

    Two-person scramble in conjunction with the Ohio Superintendent Network. Participants will be eligible for points for the season long OSN Tournament Series presented by BASF.

    Two-person scramble. Team handicaps will be based on the USGA recommendation of 35% of the A player’s handicap plus 15% of the B player’s handicap. For example, player A is a 5 handicap and player B is a 15 handicap. To calculate the team handicap, 35% of 5 is 1.75 and 15% of 15 is 2.25. The team’s scramble handicap would be 4.

    Players must have a GHIN handicap to receive strokes. Players without a handicap may enter, but they will not receive any strokes.

    Additional details and registration coming soon.
