The Rules of Golf as issued by the USGA govern play, along with Local Rules as applicable in the Club’s “Hard Card”.  See below for additional Conditions of Competition.  Violations are addressed by the Tournament Committee in cooperation with the Rules Committee.

Format:
This is a two-day, 36-hole Flighted Individual Gross and Net Stroke Play Tournament using 100% of Home Course Handicap. The Tournament Committee uses Golf Genius to determine Flights and daily pairings. Home Course Handicap is as of the date of tournament set up. The Tournament Committee makes every effort to create flights with the least amount of Handicap differential possible.

Tees to be utilized will be set by the committee based on the number of participants and flights.

Scoring:
The combined Low Gross score from Flight 1 determines the President’s Cup champion. Flight 1 pays first place Gross and first place Net, with the remainder of the payouts based on Net scores. All other Flight payouts are based on Net Scores.

A Sudden Death playoff will decide all ties for first place. Playoff holes are determined by the Tournament Committee based on course availability. Players are responsible for knowing the likelihood of a playoff possibility. Failure to be present for the playoff will result in relinquishing first place for second place. All other ties are co-winners and the place money is evenly split.

All scores are posted by the Committee for USGA Handicap purposes, with applicable Adjusted Gross Score applied.

Other Information:
Prior to the first tee, at the Registration Table, a voluntary $10.00 is collected from each player wishing to enter a flighted Net Skins game.  In addition, a voluntary $10.00 is collected from each player wishing to enter a Gross Over the Entire Field Skins game. If there is “No Skins Out” on Saturday, the skins money carries over to Sunday. In the event of “No Skins Out” on Sunday, the competition reverts to a Best Skins format on Sunday’s results only.
