NCGA Team Competition

Tahoe Donner Men's Golf Club participates in the NCGA Team Competition.  We compete in a league with 3 other teams on Thursdays throughout the summer.  The league champion moves on to compete with other winners to make it to the finals (typically) in Monterey.  If you are interested in playing please contact Mike Ginsberg ((530)4483445 or Aaron Jensen (.(530) 210=0362

Here's the 2015 season email from Mike and Aaron


It is time to start our charge for the 2015 NCGA Team Match title !!!  After a strong team effort in 2014, which had Tahoe Donner winning our bracket and advancing to the playoffs, we lost in the first round of playoffs to the eventual NCGA overall and three time consecutive champions, Whitney Oaks. We are definitely CONTENDERS !!!  This is the largest tournament that
the NCGA conducts, and we have shown that we can and will be a contender for this prestigious
title !  This season we have are in the regular season bracket with Tahoe Donner, Table Mountain, Wildhorse, and Empire Ranch !  

For those of you TDMGC members that are not familiar with this tournament format, but
might be interested, teams compete in a 12 on 12 match play format, conducted home and
away in 4 team brackets during the regular season (with a match occuring approx. every two
weeks), and the team with the best regular season win/loss record advancing to the playoff
rounds in a single elimination format with the participating teams splitting between the two
courses. This is an exciting format that gives all of us the opportunity to compete in match play
more often (very fun!).

The only rules for who can participate are that you are at least 21 years old, that you are on
the TDMGC roster as of June 1, 2015 , and we as a team at TD have limited participants to 18.4
index and lower (because that is the maximum index that NCGA recognizes for its tournaments).
If this sounds interesting to you, please respond to me via email ASAP with the following info:
1) Full name
2) GHIN #
3) Email address
4) cell phone #/home phone #

I will put together a team roster, and email all pertinent team info. Only those players selected
to participate in a match will be charged a nominal fee of $20.00 per match. For 2015, we will use our 2014 shirts
 as our team uniform.  I have extra shirts for new team members.  The shirts are very nice, and only $30.00 ! All of our matches will be played on THURSDAYS.

If you are interested, PLEASE RESPOND ASAP, and also let me know if you are available for
our first match 6/11 vs.Table Mountain @ Table Mountain !!!  
.    I know that all of you that have participated on the TD Team Match Team before are looking
forward to another shot at the NCGA Team Match title, and we are all looking forward to getting
new participants in this fun and exciting format !
