The Cleveland Metroparks Golf Division is introducing a season long points list for the 2012 season that will culminate in a bonus pool payout and someone being crowned “Cleveland Metroparks Golfer of the Year”.
Starting with the Spring Tour and continuing on through our major summer tournaments and into the Fall Tour events, all players finishing in the top 10 of each event will be awarded points. Points awarded in each event will be proportioned based on the format: players earning points in individual stroke events will be awarded the most points, while players earning points in team events will receive less.
Points will be awarded at the following Cleveland Metroparks golf events:
* Spring Tour – 4-Person Scramble, 2-Player Scramble, 2-Player Scramble/Better Ball, Women’s Scramble
* Summer Stroke Play Series – Course Championships, Greater Cleveland Amateur, Senior Greater Cleveland Amateur, Women’s Greater Cleveland Amateur
* Fall Tour – 2-Player Scramble, Bill Barbour Cup, Tour Championship
Manakiki Golf Course in Willoughby Hills will be the site of the season ending Tour Championship. Anyone who has earned points during the season will be eligible to play in this event. It will be the final chance for players to earn points and be awarded a Bonus Pool payout, which will go to the top 10 points earners. The pool payout amount will be based on the total participation in all of the above events.
The estimated first place payout is $450, including a trophy and an exemption into the 2013 Greater Cleveland Amateur. Payouts will be in the form of Cleveland Metroparks gift cards. If tournament participation increases, the projected payout will be increased.
Point standing updates will be posted on the Metroparks golf webpage and on Northeast Ohio Golf. Players will receive direct e-mail updates as well.
Flyers posted at each course will provide complete information on this brand new season-long bonus pool.
