In Memoriam of Matthew Barratt

This year’s Centennial Cup Event will honor the memory of Matthew Barratt, Superintendent of Sakonnet Golf Club who passed away unexpectedly last year. The Board of Directors would like to make a one-time donation of the proceeds from this year’s event to Matt’s widow Erica Barratt.

Thank you to all that participated last year, and a special thank you to those that hosted events.

Deadline to sign up for this year’s event will be April 15th, 2023.

Depending upon number of entrants, the following schedule would be followed. It is important to make the commitment to get these matches played on schedule in fairness to all participants involved.

(Note: this allows more time in the Round 1, as all participants will be playing. Round 3 allows more time, as summer stress conditions can make it difficult to schedule play. Other consideration, at the discretion of the Tournament Chair).

Round 1 completed by May 31st, 2023
Round 2 completed by June 30th, 2023
Round 3 completed by August 31st, 2023
Round 4 completed by September 30th, 2023
Final Round completed by October 31st,  2023
**subject to change**


As always, USGA rules will govern https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rule-23.html  We would prefer that teams consist of at least (1) Superintendent, but teams can consist of any RIGCSA members. Based on the number of entries, the Tournament Committee will create brackets based off current USGA handicaps.

Per the USGA recommendation on Match Play Four Ball at a 90% handicap allowance. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/handicapping/roh/Content/rules/Appendix%20C%20Handicap%20Allowances.htm

**Using the GHIN app, you can easily accomplish this. Under Handicap Calculator. Simply select course; select your playing partners; under handicap allowance select 90%. It will calculate it for you**

  • All strokes will be played off the lowest handicap in the group
  • All players must have a current USGA/GHIN handicap, otherwise play at a 0
  • The winners of each match, will be responsible for reporting the results to the Tournament Chair
  • $50 per team, 50% of purse goes to Centennial Fund, 50% to the winners  *(For 2023 50% of purse will be donated to Erica Barratt as stated above)

As always, the point of this competition is to have fun. So, keep it light out there and enjoy each other’s company. Competitors must all agree the day of match what conditions you are playing. Ball up or ball as it is. We cannot have one team playing the ball as is, while the other is playing them up……

Thanks for playing & Good Luck!!!
