Rules and Decisions

The Tournament Committee consists of the Golf Professional Staff at each Host Club and SCGA Tournament Director.  The USGA Rules of Golf will govern all play including any Local Rules that are posted at each Club. 

 

Distance Measuring Devices

A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only.  If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (for example - gradient, windspeed, temperature, etc), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is acutally used.

 

Pace of Play

For all (3) rounds each pairing group will consist of a maximum of 3 players.

This will help maintain a better pace by eliminating one player from each group.  

Allotted Time - Maximum times to play will be determined for each day of the Championship. Maximum times to play each hole will be printed on each competitor’s scorecard, and competitors will be additionally advised of that day’s maximum time to play prior to starting. It is the group’s responsibility to finish each checkpoint within the times outlined on the scorecard or within position of the group directly in front of them. When a group falls behind – regardless of the reason – it must regain its position. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking time between holes is included in the allotted time.

USGA Rule 6-7.  Undue Delay; Slow Play states: "The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidlines that the Committee may establish.  Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play."

 

Cancellation Policy

Refunds due to cancellation on or before May 19, 2017 are subject to a $10 administration fee.

No refunds will be issued on or after May 20, 2017 unless the vacancy can be filled by another participant.

 

Code of Conduct

Unacceptable conduct or behavior on the golf course or anywhere on club property will not be tolerated and are grounds for disqualification.   Entrants who unofficially withdraw, no notice to the the Committee, during the tournament may not be granted entry into next year's Championship. 

 

Conditions

The 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.
