CDGA Better Ball and Individual Net Series

Now in its second season, the CDGA Net Series combines the most-enjoyed aspects of the former Better Ball of Pairs and Member Day events. The Net Series, which is open to players of all skill levels, genders and ages, consists of five partner competitions and one individual event.

New for 2017:
  • A Net Better Ball of Pairs Championship featuring only teams who advance on points accumulated from the first four competitions has been added.
    • Points will be awarded to teams in each event based on finishing order. These points will not be tallied individually, but as a team and a running total will be kept across the four Better Balls. Teams earning enough points will qualify for the end of the year Championship. Click here for the points structure.
  • Only one Individual Net event will take place.
Registration is open and can be accessed from the CDGA Championship schedule or by clicking on an event in the table below.
