The 2018 CGTF & USGTF TEACHERS CUP
We are very please to host The United States Golf Teachers Federation Members in Niagara Falls in conjunction with our annual year end event. This first of its kind event will take place October, 2018. It is open to all WGTF members in good standing.
There are many reasons for choosing Niagara Falls, Ontario for this prestigious event. It is a border town and tourist city / region that offers a variety of accommodations, entertainment, and of course great golf. Entertainment includes family geared fun at the 2 indoor water-parks and the Clifton Hill Amusement area. Adults can enjoy the city night life, the 2 casinos and of course the falls themselves that draw millions of tourists each year.
The near by airports also make it very attractive. Pearson and Hamilton Airports are relatively close by for Canadian travelers, but for any Americans wishing to fly in can travel to Buffalo Airport which is less than 30 minutes away and full great deals compared to flying in Canada.
The format of this event will include some new ideas and some returning valued components of our recent CGTF events that have been popular with the participants. A discussion was had with last years competitors at the end of our tournament to see what changes they would welcome and what they felt, made it a great value. Having this knowledge will definitely help us to keep the standards high in offering the 2018 version. If you are able to join us Niagara Falls this October you won’t be disappointed!
Dates – October 1, 2 and 3, 2018
October 1 – Can-AM Blind Partner Betterball Championship
October 2 and 3 – CGTF Cup – CGTF Members & USGTF Cup – USGTF Members
All 3 rounds will be played on the Ussher’s Creek Course.
Day 1 Can-AM Blind Partner Betterball Championship
This event is designed to be a fun day. However it has the potential to meet several objectives both organizations value in any of our hosted events. We wish to create new networking opportunities for everyone, so by replacing a typical practice round with this format we feel you will have a chance to learn from random colleagues than you would from playing with the same group as years gone by. Considerations for uneven number of participants by country are going to be handled by ensuring no one will be partnered with someone from the same province or state.
Day 2 & 3 2018 CGTF Cup and USGTF Cup
Both national Championships will held in unison. Divisions will include Open, Senior, Super Senior and Women for each cup. We are recognizing a North American Champion for the overall low gross score for the 2 days. Prize money will based on the participation in each division and by each Federation. Second day play will be determined by score of the previous round. Tee times will be drawn at random for day number one by division.
