Any protest must be submitted immediately in writing (signed by the Team Captain) not later than 6:00 pm of the day of the stipulated round.
Decisions of the Rules Committee shall be final.
All players must always maintain the proper pace of play. If a group falls behind by having an open hole in front of them, they will be warned by a course marshal/rules official and asked to speed up play and keep pace with the group ahead.
If they do not, in the opinion of the marshal/official, make a conscious effort to speed up play in the next few holes, the marshal/rules official will time all members of the group.
The rules official doing the timing shall be the sole judge of when it is the players turn to play and he is able to play without interference or distraction. Any player who takes more than forty (40) seconds to play his shot from the time it is his turn to play shall incur a BAD TIME and be subject to the following penalties:
|2nd||Bad Time||One (1) point deduction from total team points|
|3rd||Bad Time||Two (2) point deduction from total team points|
|4th||Bad Time||Disqualification for the stipulated round. Player will be asked to discontinue play.|
The group will be timed until they have regained their proper position on the course. A player will carry his bad time for the rest of the round in case their flight falls out of position again.
A player who fails to score a bogey is mandated by the Tournament Committee to stop play of the hole, to speed up play. The player must pick-up his ball and not make a stroke for a double-bogey. Failure to do so is an automatic infraction. The penalty for this infraction is an automatic two (2) point deduction from the team’s points total score for the stipulated round.
The player is responsible for the correctness of the score recorded for each hole on his scorecard. If the player returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken, PLAYER IS DISQUALIFIED FOR THE STIPULATED ROUND. If he returns a score for any hole higher than actually taken, the score as returned stands.
We highly encourage all players to check their scorecard before signing and submission or dropping into the designated Score Box. If any matters arise during play that needs to be settled, check with The Committee before submitting the scorecard. Both player and marker may be disqualified for the submission of an incorrect scorecard.
