Awards will be decided from the combined scores from each day, both net and gross. Only Amputees or those playing with disabilities will qualify for low gross, low net, closest to the pin, and longest drive.
All men will play from the white tees, women from the designated tees.
Tee times will be posted and sent to every player. Please sign in 30 minutes prior to your assigned tee time.
Name tags will be provided. Please wear them. 
Pairings for the first day will accommodate those requesting specific partners. The second day will be at the tournament director’s discretion. 
The rules of the USG Association govern play.
In a sand trap, you may take it out with a one stroke penalty. You may place the ball to either end of the bunker, but no closer to the pin than where the ball entered the bunker.
To speed up play, after double par on a hole you will pick up your ball.
If your ball lands in a spot that has a white circle painted around it, this is a ground under
repair and you get a free drop, no closer to the hole, with no penalty.
