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 “Senior” tournament whereas all players must be at least 50 years of age by the start of the tournament. This is a two-day, 36-hole Flighted Individual Gross and Net Stroke Play Tournament using 100% of Home Course Handicap. The Tournament Committee use Golf Genius Program 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 Course Handicap differential possible.
Tees will be set by the committee based on the number of participants and flights.
SCORING: The low Gross score playing from the Blue tees will be the Senior Club Champion regardless of flight. The first flight will pay low gross with the remainder of the flight paying net. If the Tournament Champion comes out of a different flight from the Blue tees, that flight will also pay the low gross with the remainder of that flight paying net. All other flights will pay net.
A Sudden Death playoff will decide all ties for first place in each flight. 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 will result in co-winners and the place money will be split evenly.
All scores are posted by the Committee for USGA Handicap purposes, with applicable Adjusted Gross Score applied.
OTHER INFORMATION: 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 Field Skins game. In the event of “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 Skin Format on Sunday’s results only.
