Play your ball down as it lies unless it’s in wet or marshy areas.
Ask your opponent if they’re okay with the move. If there’s a question and you need a ruling, then hit a provisional and play both balls to the hole. We’ll sort it out with the captains at the end of the round if it really matters in the match.
If the course is wet because they watered fairways and your ball has mud on it, then lift, clean, and replace.
Please be mindful of players during tournament play and use proper etiquette. As an example:
1. Don’t play out of sequence.
2. Don’t step on other’s lines…Monty.
3. Don’t drive off during opponent’s shot.
If your ball lands in an un-raked sand divot or footprints, then rake and placing the ball back in it’s origin spot is acceptable. As you’d expect, discuss with your opponent first. If the sand is obviously hard, packed, and wet then discuss with your opponents as well. If you agree on the poor trap conditions, then rake the area and place the ball in it’s former spot.
Just remember this is supposed to be fun, fair, and consistent for all players.
Please keep individual scores on the Two Man Best Ball and Singles matches.
Please do not do the win or lost the hole in scoring.
We are keeping track of all your scores and will record them on the website.
This will also be used to assist in future handicapping activities.
For the Alternate Shot matches, please keep your team’s actual score (instead of the up & down) so we can post.
Players 70 yrs+
Players 70 years or older will be playing from the White Tees. They are allowed to bump the ball up on any shot and are allowed to ground their club in the sand. It just seems fair and applies to all 70 and over.
For the record, Monty is the only one old as dirt!
