 1.        RULES OF PLAY:

Play is governed by the USGA Rules of Golf.  Local Rules in effect will be found on the enclosed SCGA Local Rules Hard Card and the Notice to Players addendum distributed at the site.  Disregard all other club posted local rules including those on the back of the club scorecard. 



Distance measuring devices (without the capability of measuring slope, wind etc.) are permitted. Players should be cautioned that most smart phones with a distance measuring application do not qualify for use due to other applications on the phone. For example, a cell phone may not be used as a distance measuring device if the phone also has other non-conforming features under the Rules of Golf (such as a compass application on the phone). The mere presence of a non-conforming feature disqualifies the device even if these other features are not being used. Any questions about such devices should be resolved before the start of the stipulated round. Otherwise cell phone use is not permitted during the stipulated round.


3.         AWARDS & TIES:

            Awards will be given to the top three net scores within each flight.  In the event of a tie for 1st through 3rd the USGA method of matching scorecards (Holes 10 – 18 of the second round) will be used. 



            Carts will be provided for the Championship by the SCGA.  There will be a maximum of two carts per group and two bags per cart.  Drivers must be at least 16 years of age (or older if club policy dictates).  Each player is entitled to one seat in a cart.  If a player brings a caddie, the caddie may ride provided there is a vacant seat in one of the carts.  Otherwise, either the player or the caddie must walk.  


5.         PULL CARTS:

            Pull or push carts are permitted during this event.


6.         CADDIES:
