Saddle Rock-Murphy Creek Men's Interclub

  • Our Interclub policy is to maximize player participation.  We want as many players playing in the Team Interclub Competition as possible. So once you have played in a match, priority will be given to a player who has not yet had a chance to play.  If we cannot fill each match’s roster with new players, we will permit a player to play in more than one match
  • The days and dates will be established at an April meeting with the other clubs in our section, and will be published here as soon as they are set
  • The clubs in our section are: SRMC Men's Club; South Suburban; The Meadows; and Lone Tree
