Reminders Conditions of Play are available in a folder in the locker room and via the blog, here. They do change a little from year to year, so its a good idea to read them before you play each event. Local rules also change from time to time, so please read the back of your score card, and check the green boards near the starting tees each day. There is also a small handout in the Pro Shop explaining about bunkers and GUR.

There are sometimes big gaps in the field and the last players run the risk of being caught by the Vets. If you’re playing late, and are aware of a large gap in front of you, it would be appreciated if you could try to come a little early.
