Interclub

-  Saddle Rock-Murphy Creek Men's Interclub  -

2017 and 2021 State Champions

The Colorado Golf Association Interclub competition is the only official event hosted by the CGA each season that allows players of vastly different abilities to compete for a state championship.  It is a fully handicapped team match play competition that allows players from scratch to 20 to compete against one another for the glory of being crowned a State Champion!

  • Our Interclub policy is to maximize player participation.  We want as many players playing in the Team Interclub Competition as possible. So once you have played in a match, priority will be given to a player who has not yet had a chance to play.  If we cannot fill each match’s roster with new players, we will permit a player to play in more than one match

  • The clubs in our section are: SRMC Men's Club; South Suburban; Lone Tree; and Red Hawk Ridge
