The Monmouth County Park System Golf Tournaments are open to all golfers with a Golf Card unless otherwise noted. There is a fee for each tournament. Interested golfers are encouraged to inquire at a county course and speak with a member of the golf staff.
Course Championships and Grand Slam Championship
By participating in any Course Championship you have automatically entered into two competitions: first the Course Championship and second the Grand Slam Championship. The overall Grand Slam Champion per flight will be determined based on points awarded for each golfer’s finish in each tournament played in. To determine which flight a golfer will be competing in, we used the actual GHIN handicap index and this flight breakdown:
Championship Flight: 7.9 and under
A Flight: 8 – 11.9
B Flight: 12 – 16.9
C Flight: 17 and up
The handicap index used for the first Course Championship played in will lock a player into the appropriate flight then used for all Course Championships to follow. If the course handicap would be used to flight players, a player could potentially end up playing in different flights at different Course Championships and would not qualify for the overall Grand Slam Championship; therefore, the decision was made to use the handicap index instead.
If a handicap index change would occur throughout the season that would place a player in a different flight at a different Course Championship and the player is not interested in being in the running for the Grand Slam Championship, the golfer might play in the flight he would qualify for based on his changed handicap index. However, at this point, the player would forfeit any points previously earned and would be eliminated from the overall Grand Slam Championship contention in any flight.
By default we assume that all participants continue to play in all Course Championships entered in the flights they initially qualify for. Otherwise please contact Golf Administration.
After the first weekend of each Course Championship, which consists of a 36-hole stroke play qualifier for each flight, the top eight golfers from each flight will move on to match play the following weekend.
To determine the overall Grand Slam Champion for each flight after the completion of all four Course Championships, the following point system will be used:
- Post two scores during qualifying and earn one (1) point toward the Grand Slam Championship.
- Advance to the first round of any match play and earn 3 points.
- Advance to the semifinals and earn 5 points.
- Finish in second place and earn 7 points.
- Win the flight and earn 10 points.
After the last golf Course Championship, the winner will be presented with a trophy and be recognized as Monmouth County’s Grand Slam Champion for their respective flight. Players need to obtain only one handicap at a Monmouth County golf course to compete in all four events. If you have any questions, please contact Golf Administration at 732-462-9224, ext. 1#.
