SCGA Scratch League
The SCGA Scratch League is open to every private, semi-private and public golf course within the SCGA. Teams are comprised of seven players, six amateur members and one member from each club’s professional staff. Clubs are arranged in groups of three, four or five and will play a series of home and away matches within their assigned group. Each match will be played without handicaps utilizing the scratch league points system. Group winners will meet in the SCGA Scratch League Championship. Two teams will then advance, along with two clubs from Northern California, to compete in the California Scratch League Championship.
2017 Scratch League
A decade later, Granite Bay Golf Club grabbed itself another title.
Granite Bay GC shot a team score of 41, easily outdistancing runner-up Saticoy Country Club, to capture the annual Calfornia Scratch League crown at Monday’s finals at par-71 Poppy Hills GC in Pebble Beach. It’s the second Scratch League title for Granite Bay, who won the inaugural season in 2008.
Saticoy came in at 29, with Bear Creek GC placing third at 22. Fourth place went to Woodbridge G&CC at 20.
“In our local pool (round robin play), we were in quite a deficit. It took a big surge just to get to the Regional,” Granite Bay captain Mike Nicoletti said. “Today, everyone put it together.”
Leading Granite Bay were Jon Peterson and Nicoletti, who each tallied seven points. Gary Deblaquiere and Jeremy Price each had six points, while Steve Hunter, Gary Dunn and Scott Colby all chipped in five for the champs.
Woodbridge G&CC was paced by six points from Sean Bunnell and four from Kevin Wolf.
The league uses a format where every hole is worth 16 points–7 to the winner, 5 to second, 3 to third and 1 for fourth. Each player then competes against the other three players in the foursome. If all the players tie on a specific hole, each player receives four points.
