Each year, weather and pandemic permitting, the CCMGA hosts 6 tournaments, usually 3 individual events and 3 “team” events. Examples include one-man scramble (2 tries at every shot), 18-hole stroke play from the red tees, or variations of 2 man scrambles using different tees. Every event has both scratch and net prizes so players of all skill levels can win placement, hole prizes and skins. None of our events are “big” money with entry fees (exclusive of greens/cart fees) usually being no more than $25.
This tournament series also gives players the opportunity to win points toward Player of the Year (scratch and net) and qualification to play in Ryder Cup styles events against other golf courses.
These events are an EXCELLENT way to come out and meet more CCMGA Members, and let people know you’d like to be called as a sub or join a League team.
The CCMGA also has other events, which are open to League members and others that have joined the CCMGA. If you do not play “League,” you can still play in the CCMGA Events, provided you have joined the CCMGA and have established a qualifying average. One small caveat, CCMGA would like from those who never play League matches occasional score cards from some serious Biggs Kreigh 18 hole golf rounds so they can keep updating handicaps. Not fair for a guy to play a couple of qualifying 95’s rounds and then keep that handicap even when he is shooting low 80’s regularly (most CCMGA events are conducive to handicap adjustments).
CCMGA too supports the Whitlock Shoot-Out against Cancer, which is a fundraising event that uses Shootout golf competition to raise money AND keep a sense of community alive through the event. You must experience the final round to see for yourself how much Cross Creek is a community, not just a golf course.
CCMGA runs an unique 5 person scramble in late July to support the Men’s Golf Hall of Fame and to introduce the new inductee(s) for the year (we make the teams to balance competition, so you sign up as an individual).
CCMGA also sponsors special “Skins Games” on Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day and a way to get more people interested in joining the weekly “skins” games.
There is also the year end “fun” and open event called the Revenge, where the Tournament Committee sets up the course with trick shots and unique rules designed to entertain and take a break for overly serious play. Always a lot of fun.
CCMGA also offers the Adams County Cup annual competition (23 years so far) against Wabash Valley golf club, and is hoping to introduce a new Intra-club competition between the Monday and Thursday Leagues.
