NORTHERN CALIFORNIA GOLF ASSOCIATION:

The NCGA has declared that the following divisions will be NCGA Point Events:

  • Men’s Championship
  • Men’s Senior
  • Men’s Super Senior
  • Women’s Championship
  • Women’s Senior

We also want to take this opportunity to remind players that the SF City Golf Championship is solely operated by the SF Golf Championship Committee. The Northern California Golf Association (NCGA) has more than graciously supplied rules officials to monitor play and to help players with rulings for decades. They have volunteered to assist the SF Golf Committee to help run the tournament but, they do not manage the tournament.

Their involvement has made the entire tournament a much more pleasant, established, and well-organized event. We welcome every single aspect they contribute to the tournament and thank them for their undying efforts over all these years. The NCGA acknowledges the event in as much as allowing NCGA points for several of our divisions.

NOTE: Ties for qualifying spots will be broken by sudden death playoff. Ties for seeding shall be broken by the USGA method of matching scorecards.
