Temporary Weekend Tournament Format

The Coronado Men’s Golf Club’s temporary weekend tournament format will allow members to sign up on the scheduled dates with no payment necessary until further notice. If you’d like to play April 4th & 5th, sign up as usual on the website (above). Those that signed up and paid previously have been refunded. The Board will not ask members or volunteers to put themselves at risk during this time, so there will be no tournament operations (payments, scoring, chits) except for assigning tee times.  The city of Coronado has decided to keep the course open, but the Pro Shop will be closed.  As always, if you have been assigned a tee time and choose not to play, please ensure you call the Pro Shop and cancel your time.  You will be able to pay at the Pro Shop window and carts will be available and disinfected after each use.  There will not be sand bottles and the flags and rakes should not be touched.  We ask that all members take appropriate precautions such as social distancing and not playing if you are sick. We will post and send out further information as it happens.

Weekend Tournaments to use Golf Genius

The weekend tournament committee has begun using Golf Genius for real-time scoring. Please be patient as we go through the transition process. Also because of the transition, several 2020 tournaments will only use the World Handicap System course handicaps instead of the past Local Handicaps. Please see the information on downloading the Golf Genius App here or any APP store. If you have any questions, please see us in the office, thanks.
