Who Can Play

Boys and Girls between the ages of 8 and 18 can play in the tournament. A players age will be determined by their age on the final day of the tournament.

Format

All play will be stroke play. All Boys and Girls 10 and older will play 18 holes each day of the tournament. The Girls 8-9 year old division will play 9 holes each day of the tournament.

Pace of Play

We will use a checkpoint system for our pace of play standards. If a group is late in reaching a checkpoint, the entire group will be given warning and given until the next checkpoint to get caught up. If at that point they are still behind, each member of the group will be given a 1-stroke penalty. The penalty can be taken back if they get back into place. A group may also appeal the penalty if one person is found to be causing the delay. A member of the Rules Committee will make the final decision.
