CHAMPIONSHIP ACCOMMODATIONS FOR DISABLED SPECTATORS
The WSGA is committed to providing an enjoyable spectator experience for people with disabilities at WSGA Championships. Requests from spectators seeking transportation onto the golf course due to a permanent disability, as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), must be submitted to a WSGA staff member on site. While spectator carts are not allowed, the WSGA will make every effort to accommodate these requests by assigning a WSGA volunteer driver based on availability. The driver will transport the spectator to viewing locations throughout the golf course, not shot-by-shot or hole-by-hole.
Spectators with transportation needs should contact the WSGA Championship Department at (206) 526-8605 prior to the championship so that arrangements can be made to have a driver on site.
Requests due to temporary injuries or impairments will not be granted.
Only spectators who have complied with the above procedures and met the requirements will be permitted to ride. Every possible effort will be made to ensure that spectators with permanent disabilities are able to view the competition.
The WSGA expects all contestants and their caddies to wear suitable attire on the host club property throughout the duration of the championship, including practice rounds. Suitable attire does not include cutoffs, short shorts, tank tops, jeans or denim of any kind or color, tee shirts, sweat pants, or unkempt clothing of any kind. Contestants must wear neat and clean slacks, Bermuda, or walking shorts. Shorts must be of an appropriate length and must adhere to the dress code of the host club. Golf shirts with collars are mandatory. Hats and visors must not be worn in the clubhouse. Shoes and socks must be worn at all times. Sandals of any kind, even sandals with soft spikes, are not allowed. If additional measures are required by the host club, they will be communicated to all contestants prior to the qualifier and must be adhered to.
Shoes with traditionally-designed spikes (regardless of composition, i.e., ceramic, plastic, etc.) or spikes, regardless of design, comprised either entirely or partially of metal (if such metal may come in contact with the course) are prohibited during the stipulated round. Penalty for breach of this condition: Disqualification.
