In case of weather cancellations, we allow one make-up tournament: Tuesday, May 22.
No tournaments the weeks for April 9-13 or May 14-18 because of STAAR testing.
Double par limits on all holes (junior high plays 9 holes). To keep the pace of game, if you are hitting a 6 on a par 4, and you are still not on the green then pick it up and record double par (8).
Boys play from the white tees & girls from the red tees.
You may improve your lie one scorecard length without taking a stroke. This applies to fairway only, not on the green! Under wet conditions we will use “lift, clean, and place.”
Be sure to begin keeping score on the hole you are assigned to start on.
Trade score cards with another person in your group. You are to keep track of their hits and write their score on the card. You may keep your own score under their score (on the bottom of the card).
Be sure to verify their score at the end of each hole (as you are walking off the green). Any disagreements must be addressed immediately. Should a decision not be agreed upon, mark the hole and take it up with the coach.
After 9 holes, the total must be added up. Each golfer will sign the bottom of the card, then the card will return to its original owner in order to be turned into coach.
Each junior high can bring 5 golfers. The highest score is thrown out, with the 4 lowest scores added together for a team score. In the case of a tie, the 5th score will serve as a tie breaker.
Out-of-Bounds and Lost Balls
Out-of-bounds and lost balls are required to take a stroke.
Golfer may hit a provisional ball if they believe their ball is lost or o.b. If you find your original ball, play it and pick up the provisional. Hitting the wrong ball is a penalty. Hitting a provisional ball will save time when you discover that the original ball is o.b. If you end up playing the provisional, you are lying 3.
Same rule pertains to a shot hit from the fairway out of bounds. Hit a provisional from the original position and then determine which ball is playable. Anytime you play the provisional ball, it counts as an extra stroke.
“Lift, clean, and place” – This means you can mark your ball (place a marker into the ground right behind the ball), then lift the ball, clean the ball, and then place it back within 6 inches of the original position, no closer to the hole. This applies “through the green” which means anywhere except in a hazard or sand.
