Crystal Cup Invitational
The Crystal Cup Invitational is an annual tournament with the 2023 event being held on September 25. Participation in the event is by invitation to the top 72 point earners in qualifying Club tournaments from January through August. You are not required to play in all eight qualifying events.
Immediately following completion of the qualifying tournaments, the top 72 point earners will be invited to participate in the Crystal Cup Invitational. In the event any qualifying player does not accept their invitation by August 28, 2023, the next player on the points list will be invited. If the top 72 qualifiers include ties and result in the number of groups not divisible by four, the next player(s) on the points list will be selected to ensure even groups of four players each.
The format is a 2 person scramble with teams assigned based on cumulative points earned throughout the season. The top two point leaders will be paired together and tee off in the final group with the 3rd and 4th place points earners. 5th and 6th pair together and grouped with the 7th and 8th teeing off in the 2nd to last position and so on.
Entry fee into the 2023 Crystal Cup Invitational will be $25.00 per player and includes golf, cart & GPS, range balls and lunch.
