Phase 2 Begins February 1 or 2

MARSHALL, MI — The Carl Spackler Open, renowned as the #1 amateur golf tournament in the United States, officially begins Phase 2 of its highly anticipated Roster Acceptance process at the beginning of February. The Captains Club continues the meticulous task of building the participant list for the 23rd annual event scheduled to take place in four months.

Chairman of the Captains Club, Greg Long, emphasized the significance of this second phase, stating, "We continue to build our roster for our Michigan event. Registrants listed under the Phase 2 of the Roster Worksheet are added as participants in early February. Unpaid pending participants have until the 21st of February to pay their $200 deposit."

A total of 43 registrants were added on January 1 as part of Phase 1 of the Roster Build. Approximately half of those registrants had paid the deposit by January 1.

Paid registrants for Phase 2 are granted an official roster spot in the coming days. Unpaid pending registrants have three weeks, to secure their place by making the required deposit. Failure to receive a full $200 deposit in February will result in the removal and unregistering of all pending participants.

Captains Club Chief Financial Officer, Rick Dosky, explained, "The Carl Spackler Open requires $200 deposits. Deposits for accepted participants became non-refundable and non-transferrable starting five months prior our event."

Phase 2 encompasses a diverse range of players, volunteers, favorite playing partners, higher contribution grades, and higher attendance grades. The order in which each event roster is constructed is determined by the information provided in the Roster Worksheet. The active sheet is available within the registration process and inside the website notebook.

"Unregistered golfers who missed the Phase 2 deadline have the opportunity to be accepted at the beginning of Phase 3 if registered by February 29," revealed Captains Club member Matt Pritchard. "Registering on March 2 likely misses the deadline for Phase 3 entry."

The three-phase approach involves adding a group of registrants as pending participants at the start of each month (or phase), processing received payments, and unregistering unpaid participants at the end of each month (or phase). The participants' webpage identifies pending participants with unpaid deposits. A large portion of registrants make payments upon registration, streamlining the calendar management process.

With the 2024 Carl Spackler Open slated to unfold in Michigan in four months, organizers anticipate participation of 80 golfers in this landmark 23rd edition. The first set of participant options and subsequent phases will roll out in the coming months, building excitement among golf enthusiasts and setting the stage for another thrilling tournament experience.
