Player Information Sheet
Club Information: 4280 Greenville Rd,
Livermore, CA 94550
FORMAT: Individual Net. Contestants will play their own ball for 18 holes and will be assigned to separate flights based off their September 15th handicap index or tournament index, whichever is lower, and will receive 100% of their course handicap. The top finishers in each flight will receive gift card money to Golf Mart stores. Players are required to play from the designated tees based off their assigned flight, unless previously arranged and approved by the committee.
Men: White Tees Z/M (6,249 Yards; 70.7/127), White Tees M/C (6,259 Yards; 70.9/126)

Play will begin at 7:30 a.m. with tee times in 10 minute intervals off the No. 1 tee of both the Merlot/Chardonnay course and Zinfandel/Merlot course. Please be at the correct No. 1 tee (Zinfandel No. 1 for Z/M; Merlot No. 1 for M/C) ready for play 10 minutes prior to your start time. There you will exchange scorecards with your fellow-competitors, and be able to pay into an optional skins game. NOTE: This will be counted as two different tournaments.
PACE OF PLAY & RULES: Please be sure to keep up with the group in front of you. Groups that miss their 18-hole checkpoint (finishing over the designated time and more than 14 minutes behind the group in front of them) are subject to a two-stroke penalty. In order to keep an adequate pace of play, players are asked to pick up once maximum score has been reached on a respective hole; failure to do so will result in a two-stroke penalty.
The Rules of Golf as approved by the USGA and the R & A are in effect. It is the player’s responsibility to have a working knowledge of the rules. For more information regarding the rules, players can visit the NCGA’s website: https://ncga.org/rules/
MAXIMUM SCORE: A gross quintuple bogey. (Par 3s = 8; Par 4s = 9, Par 5s =10)
SERIOUS MISCONDUCT & DRESS CODE: A player who is removed from the course for Serious Misconduct will result in a loss of all funds and potentially a suspension from future events. Players and Caddies are to dress appropriately. For more information, please refer to the NCGA Weekend Net Tour Hard Card.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: The top 15 overall net scores, from each course rotation will receive points on the Weekend Net Tour Player of the Year list for their finish, while the remaining players will receive participation points for completing an 18-hole round. Players who do not have an established numeric handicap index are ineligible to win prizes, skins, or placement points. NOTE: This will be counted as two separate points events.
GIFT CARD DISTRIBUTION: The top performers in each flight will win gift cards to GolfMart stores. These will be distributed by email and will be done in batches, so gift card monies may not be received for up to 6 weeks. Also, any skins not claimed at the close of competition will be paid out by GolfMart gift cards. Players who do not have an established numeric handicap index are ineligible to win gift cards. Please be sure your email in Golf Genius is up to date.
TIES: Ties for gift card prizes will be settled using USGA recommendations of a card off: best back 9 net score, best back 6 (net), best back 3 (net), followed by best 18th hole (net), finally, tie-break by coin-flip.
