FORMAT:  The event will be 18 holes of stroke play in a Scramble format. Play will be 35% of the lower player’s handicap and 15% of the higher player’s handicap. A side will start the play of each hole and then select the side’s best shot. The partner may place a ball within six inches (no closer to the hole) of the selected spot in the same area of the course (general area, penalty area, bunker, putting green). The side plays their next stroke from the chosen spot. This procedure is followed on every shot until the ball is holed. Sides are required to select each partner’s tee shot at least six times throughout a round. Handicap indexes from September 29th or a player’s tournament index, whichever is lower, will be used.


TEES: (Tee assignment is required due to format; yardages are approximate

(All) Men: White tees (approximately 6,172 yards, par 72, 70.9/136)

(All) Women: Green tees (approximately 5,153 yards, par 73, 71.8/130)


Play will begin at 7:56 a.m. off the No. 1 tee. Please be at the No. 1 tee ready for play 10 minutes prior to your start time. There you will go over scoring and other important procedures with the starter.


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 triple bogey (Par 3s = 6, Par 4s = 7, Par 5s = 8).


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.

DRIVING RANGE & PRACTICE GREEN: The driving range and practice green are available for use no earlier than 30 minutes before a player’s tee time. Social distancing will be required of all players when in these areas. To avoid overcrowding and to give everyone the opportunity to use the practice green, players are to limit the amount of time at the driving range and practice green to a maximum of 15 minutes each. If you plan to use the driving range, please go to the driving range immediately upon arrival.


SPECTATORS AND CADDIES: In an effort to limit the number of people at the facility, spectators and caddies are not allowed. Spectators and caddies who show up at the facility will be asked to leave.


SKINS: An optional skins game will be available for the cost of $20 per side. Players must bring exactly $20 to drop in the cash box. Change will not be distributed, and no cash will be awarded post round.


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. 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.
