The season-long North vs. South team competitions is a relatively new format, evolving from the old 1st Team competitions and moving to the current battle of the North and South clubs starting with the 2020 golf season. All of these competitions use yours and your partner’s handicap to create competitive balance in individual match-ups, but the competition is played at scratch or gross stroke play.
Any player from any club with a single-digit handicap is free to sign-up for these competitions; however, in the inaugural season last year, several double-digit handicap players signed-up and were able to play due to a limited number of single-digit players available to play. Additionally, if you have a preferred pairing partner, you can request to play with that player.
Keep your eyes open for email recruiting announcements for these events coming from our Oakwood North-South captain, Brian Brieske, typically three weeks prior to the event.
NOTE: Final player selection for the competition will be determined by the North and South captains, respectively. The captain of our South team is Steve Grusczynski from the Greenfield men’s golf club.
COST - Currently, payment for these competitions will NOT run through your Oakwood account. Payment will be handled at the golf course on the day of the event. Please bring CA$H for payment of the hole events and skins game (which is $15 total per event IN ADDITION to the greens fees).

2nd Team is an inter-club match play competition. The seven county Men's Clubs field twelve man teams to compete in five traditional match play tournaments throughout the season. The five matches rotate around the seven county courses. The events are open to any handicap level and players are paired according to handicap as best possible. Foursomes are comprised of men from four different clubs.
For Oakwood Men's Club 2nd Team events, interested players should sign up on the form posted below. The first twelve players to sign up are chosen for the team. Two alternates are also chosen to fill roster spots if someone drops out at the last minute. Handicaps are downloaded on the day the rosters are due, usually a week before the event. Fees for 2nd team will be deducted from our club accounts as is per all other club events. Individual players that wish to ride in a golf cart are responsible for those fees at the clubhouse on the day of the event.
