HANDICAPS:

All play will use your index from Friday, Aug 27th (ignorning any update on the 28th or 29th).

RULES:

USGA Rules of Golf will apply. Rangefinders are acceptable for measuring distances provided slope is not used (subject to disqualification).  All putts must be holed by the player (no “gimmies”). 

Local Rules:  

1.  OB and Lost Ball

For this competition, we have adopted the local rule that permits you to take relief from a lost ball or out of bounds from the spot the area the ball is presumed lost or went out of bounds.   You can still play a provisional, but that may not always be your best option.  Brush up on this rule here:  https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules-hub/rules-modernization/major-changes/golfs-new-rules-stroke-and-distance.html

2.  Unmarked hazard areas

The forrest preserve areas and the area behind the greens of 14 and 16 are lateral hazards; use the edge of the rough as the hazard line. 

3. Speed of Play (aka "No Grinding")

You are also obligated to keep pace with the group in front of you.  It is each player’s responsibility to ensure the entire group remains on pace.  We will follow the USGA’s guidance on slow play by placing golfers “on the clock” if they are out of position.  Players who are on the clock and do not speed up their pace will be assessed a two stroke penalty.

Any additional local rules will be posted before each round.

FORMAT:

36 Hole Individual Stroke Play Event with 1st, 2nd and 3rd places paid for both net and gross score.  You will win the highest prize you are eligible to receive.

FLIGHTS:

The Championship Class plays from the black tees; A and Bplay from the blue tees, and Class C and D plays from the white tees.  In all cases, if the sum of a member's handicap index plus their age equals or exceed 80 they may play from the White tees.

SKINS:

Skins are net with 1/2 strokes will be applied where each shot would fall.

GROSS AND NET WINNERS:

The player returning the lowest 36 hole score winner of the gross flight.  For the net flight, 100% of the handicap will be used, with a maximum of 36 strokes.  If there is a tie for 1st place in the gross event, there will be a sudden-death playoff to determine the winner. Resolution of ties for other positions will be determined by the USGA recommended method.

The competitor must report the facts of the situation to the Tournament Committee before returning his scorecard. If he fails to do so, he is disqualified.
