NATIONAL CHAMPION

A CINDERELLA STORY IN THE MAKING

Every. Shot. Counts. Many will try, 128 will advance, only 1 will survive!

QUALIFYING KICKS OFF 3/7 | BRACKET ANNOUNCED 3/24

HOW IT WORKS…

March Match Play is a single-elimination match play tournament. Qualifying rounds kick off on 3/7 and run through 3/22. Players can complete up to 3 qualifying rounds during the qualifying period, after which the top 124, as well as the final 4 from the previous year, are placed on a bracket. Players who advance to the bracket stage then battle over 4 rounds to claim their spot in the Final 8 and earn a trip to Casa De Campo in the Dominican Republic to compete for the title of National Champion!!

HOW TO WIN…

1. SIGN UP

Secure your spot by signing up in time to complete up to the 3 allowed qualifying attempts by 3/22 before the top 128 bracket is announced 3/24!

– Saturday Morning 8-10am | 3/9 and 3/16
– Sunday Night 8-10pm | 3/10 and 3/17

Qualifying times subject to availability – select your qualifying window during registration.

2. COMPETE

Players must compete at least one qualifying round during the qualifying period. At the end of the qualifying period, the top 124 qualifiers plus the 4 finalists from last season will be placed into a bracket. During the bracket stage, matches do not have to be played concurrently, allowing you to play each round with a sim rental that fits your schedule. Team 5i will set you up and your scorecard will automatically be submitted to the Commissioner who will do that math for you and determine who moves on!

3. CASA DE CAMPO, BABY!

The Final 8 players will enjoy a trip down to Casa De Campo in the Dominican Republic to compete for the championship! Players will complete the final rounds outdoors in the Dominican Republic to decide the March Match Play Champion! The elite 8 will also have their sticks shipped south for them courtesy of Ship Sticks.

Overview

The March Matchplay is an individual match play tournament. Players who enter will have a ~2 week period to complete qualifying round(s) after signing up and making payment for the tournament. During this period they can complete up to 3 qualifying rounds for the tournament, which can be completed during the designated qualifying times for no charge. Players are also able to complete their qualifying rounds outside of these times but will need to cover the cost of their bay rental After the qualifying period, the top 124 will be entered into a bracket based on their scores from the first round (the 4 finalists from last year will receive automatic entry and top seeds in the bracket). Then they will post scores week to week until either they are eliminated, or advance to the Final 8. A newsletter will be sent out to all players before the tournament explaining the qualifying instructions. Then after the qualifiers are done, an email will be sent to all players saying who advanced, and if they did advance, how to join the first round, and the course we will be playing. After the first week – a newsletter will be sent out each Monday with the results of the previous week and the information including the course for the next round.
