Men's Match Play League
The GCC Wednesday Men’s match play league is for players who enjoy match play competition and playing a friendly 9 Holes with friends. This is a committed league and players are expected to be available for the majority of their matches. If you are interested in league play but can’t commit to play most weeks, we encourage you to sign up on our substitute list.
The Match Play league will be on Wednesday evenings and will start May 13th and end August 19th with the Banquet and Scramble on August 26th. There will be a league meeting on Wednesday May 6th at 5:30 PM to review league details. Tee times will begin at 4:30PM and will be assigned on a weekly basis. The league registration fee is $55.00 and the weekly greens/prize fee is $21.00 (Doesn’t include cart or prizes). There will also be an optional 4-week masters and 3 club tournaments (to be voted on at the meeting). Prize money and a year-end banquet are included in the $55.00 registration fee. All prize money (weekly CTTP contest and year end team winners) will be paid out in golf shop credits. Golf shop credits may be redeemed for merchandise from our golf shop.
The format for the league is 9-hole individual/team net match play. Participants will be put into teams based on their individual handicap. Last season we had 20 players who were divided up into 4 teams of 5 players. In match play, the game is played by holes. A hole is won by the player that holes his ball in fewer strokes. There is 10 points available for each match (1 point per hole and 1 point for the match winner). EX. Mark and Tim are playing against each other in an individual match. Mark makes a 4 on the first hole and Tim makes a 5. Mark would be 1 up in the match and would receive 1 point. Individual match point results are calculated weekly and formulate a team score. The team with the most points at the end of the season will be the winner.
The Gorham Country Club staff will be administering all league activities. This includes scoring, handicapping, rules & tee time assignment. We want you to enjoy a stress-free night and have FUN playing golf with your friends. We will handle the heavy lifting and foster an atmosphere that encourages comradeship.

We look forward to seeing you enjoy your Wednesdays on “Maine’s Friendliest Course”.
