Players who do not have an official index, or who fail to meet the handicap requirements, may be permitted to compete based on Tournament Committee approval. The tournament committee will verify all indexes, and all decisions are final.

    5) Range finders may be used but must have any slope detection turned off.

    Men and juniors (boys) play from blue tees. All ladies and junior (girls) play from white tees.

    Pairings will be computer randomized. All groups will start on either the 1st or 10th tee.

    Tee times will be assigned with Championship and lower handicapped flights scheduled earlier.

    Play ready golf. Pace of play is important. Please keep up with the group ahead. Groups that fall behind may be assessed a 2-stroke penalty by the committee if a warning to catch up is not adhered to in a reasonable span of time.
    All contestants must check in and be registered fifteen minutes before tee time.
    Any person not registered on time will be subject to a 2-stroke penalty if their group has not yet started, or disqualified if their group has already left the tee.
    All finalist will play on Monday.


    "The Championship Committee reserves the right to alter any of the conditions and schedules herein. The Committee reserves the right to reject the entry of any applicant, at any time, for any reason. Any decision by the Committee, in any matter, shall be final."

    This disclaimer allows the Tournament Committee, among other things, to adjust a golfer's handicap index based on prior history or to reject an applicant's entry into the event. A disclaimer will also allow the Committee to use the following point system developed by Dean Knuth, Senior Director of Handicapping for the United States Golf Association. The point system may aid a club or Tournament Committee when incidents or problems occur repeatedly.
