FORMAT: Individual Net.

Play will begin at 10:10 a.m. with tee times in 10 minute intervals off the No. 1 tee of Chardonnay/Zinfandel course. Please be at the No. 1 tee ready for play 10 minutes prior to your start time. There you will exchange scorecards with your fellow-competitors and go over the competition rules. Please note that there will not be an optional skins game due to the limited field size


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:


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: Every player competing in the event will have a mathematical chance to become the Senior Series Player of the Year for his or her respective division (i.e. Senior Division and Super Senior Division. Please see separate points table for the points breakdown of this event.


GIFT CARD DISTRIBUTION: The top performers in each division 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 & PLAYOFF: If there is a tie for first place for a division (i.e. Senior or Super Senior), a sudden-death playoff will take place until a winner is determined. 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.
