Championship Accomodations 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 ext. 3 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.
Contestants who use pull carts must not take them close to putting greens or across tees. Contestants must take pull carts around the outside edge of all greenside bunkers and around all tees.
Host club caddies will not be available. Players may provide their own caddie. Caddies must wear a WSGA caddie bib, provided on the starting tee.
Kusak crystal prizes and merchandise certificates will be awarded to the gross and net champions of the field (Gross Champion may only come from the Championship Flight) as well as the low gross and low net teams in each flight. Merchandise certificates will also be awarded to the top finishing gross and net teams in each flight.
NOTE: Except for ties of the overall gross championship, Matching Scorecards will be used to determine winners for crystal only (merchandise will be split) as outlined by the USGA in Section 5A(6) of Committee Procedures.
The awards ceremony will take place immediately following the conclusion of play in the banquet room.
The 2019 Mixed-Chapman Champions will receive an exemption for the 2020 Mixed-Chapman Championship. The team must be comprised of the same players to receive this exemption.
