2024 MATCH PLAY

WHAT IS MATCH PLAY?

Match Play is about winning holes – many a match is won or lost by just a single putt!  It’s impossible to predict the outcome of a Match Play Tournament since the playing field is equalized by using handicaps. This format is a fun way to compete since one “blow-up hole” doesn’t mean you’re out of the match!

FORMAT

Our goal this year is to make playing in the Match Play League less stressful by setting up the Match Play League to coincide with our 6 existing leagues. We'll be using the pod format as we did last year, with the number of players per pod to be confirmed by who signs up. Hopefully there will be at least 3 in each pod, so everyone is guaranteed at least 2 matches.  Each pod will have a round robin format, so that everyone plays each other once.  Winners of each pod will move on to the playoffs.

PREREQUISITES

  • Membership in the LPGA Amateurs - Greater Toronto Area (GTA) chapter
  • Maintain a current Handicap Factor through Golf Canada
  • Registered in at least one of our GTA leagues

RULES OF PARTICIPATION

All players must observe the following:

  • First Round Matches must be played during one of the 6 GTA leagues. (Pickering Glen, Don Valley, Lakeview, Granite Ridge, Hidden Lake or Travelling League (Please note: courses vary for the Travelling League)). See exception note below**
  • Please check the schedule of play of your chosen league(s) so you know of your date and time commitments (forfeited matches are not fun for your opponent!)
  • When you register, please indicate which league you will be attending (A second choice will be asked and only used if there is an extreme imbalance in the pods and only with your consent)
  • Arrange and play your matches before the specified deadlines - inability of a player to arrange or play a scheduled match before the deadline may result in forfeiture of the match (Exception Note**- play may be booked outside of league time on your league pod’s course if both players agree. This is encouraged to avoid forfeiture)
  • Notify your League Coordinator a week in advance when a Match will be played so they can put you in the same foursome
