of the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove
All profits from this Golf Cup will support the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove and other Rotary Clubs named by players.
We are people of action, improving our communities with integrity and passion.
The Rotary Golf Cup is a fun seasonal Match Play, played in 2 stages. First, there’s a group stage, followed by a Playoff.
The Golf Cup is open to everyone. The starter fee is C$150 of which C$100 are passed on as a donation.
To offer our Golf Cup to a wider audience, we have decided to offer 3 categories in which you can compete. We hope that this makes it easier for busy golfers or true beginners to participate easily. Of course, our traditional in-person match play is still part of the game.
Category 1 – Real
LIVE is the original idea. You’ll meet with your opponent on a course you select at a time and date you agree upon. You complete the group stage and if you are the winner or runner-up, you will qualify for the play-offs.
More details here: [Link Category 1 explained].
Category 2 – Virtual
VIRTUAL is a new idea we’ve had for the busy golfers. All you need is to send in a scorecard from an 18 hole round you have a witness for, e.g. your weekly league round. We will then match you against another player in your group on a randomly created virtual course. Your score will be calculated in Stableford points and the holes will be compared by handicap as a fair way of deciding who one or lost the hole. More details here: [Link Category 2 explained].
Category 3 – Simulated
SIMULATED is a way to participate by playing on a simulator. Here you can decide if you want to play alone and we compare the results after we have received both scores (your and your opponent’s) or if you would like to play against your opponent at the same time.
This is a great way for beginners or all golfers who have very little time to participate.

The Rotarians are a big family, and every Rotary Club has great projects and causes to support. So, in order to widen our playing field, we want all of our family members to benefit from our tournament. That’s why we have decided, you can name a Rotary Club you would like to support; we will then share your donation 50/50 with this club – creating a win-win for all of us.
The idea for our Golf Cup came during the 2020 season while playing our favorite sport. The pandemic put a lid on traditional golf tournaments to raise funds, so we thought, why not making it a seasonal event? And born was our Golf Cup.
The Golf Cup helps us as well as any other Rotary Club you would like to support with a little bit of funds. The setup we’ve chosen ensures a fair and friendly competition with a focus on fun while helping to achieve our Rotarian goals.
We are grouping participants by location, handicap range and gender to ensure a fair and fun game. The groups will be consisting of 6 players. All players have to play against one another once which means every player plays at least 5 times. There are no set golf courses to play, you and your partner may chose a course near
you. Since it is a match game, each pair can chose a golf course which is close to them. We only need to know who won or if the game was tied. Of course, we help with the setup and the handicap calculations. We also hope to find interesting courses offering a special Green Fee for our players.
Since we’re playing a seasonal tournament, there are no fixed games days, only time slots to complete your games in. Enjoy the freedom and responsibility to call your opponent to set up a time and date as well as a location. Please, see below the tournament schedule with time slots:
