Registration

Participants will be divided into girls and boys for each age division. Divisions will be broken down by 7-10, 11-13, and 14-18 years of age.

Registration will close on the Sunday before each event. Participants will not be able to register after the close of registration or once the division is full so participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible!

Tournament Rules

Format and Ties The 7-10 and 11-13 divisions will play 9-hole rounds and the 14-18 division will play 18-hole rounds. All divisions will follow a stroke play format. In the event of a tie, ties will be broken based on a scorecard playoff with the exception of a tie for 1st place in a Major event. If a tie for 1st place occurs in a Major event, the winner will be determined based on a sudden death playoff.

7-10 Divisions Will play from 1500-1900 yards over 9-holes. Parent caddies are allowed (see guidelines below).

11-13 Divisions Girls will play from 1900-2400 yards over 9-holes. Boys will play from 2300-2700 yards over 9-holes. Caddies are not allowed in these division, however a volunteer scorer will walk with each group (scorer is not to be a parent or guardian of a child in that group unless they are designated by tournament staff and have gone through the volunteer safety training process).

14-18 Divisions Girls will play from 5000-5400 yards over 18-holes. Boys will play from 5600-6000 yards over 18-holes. Caddies are not allowed in these divisions and players will be responsible for keeping their score and that of their competitors.

Participants should arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before their tee time.

**Due to our current safety guidelines, spectators will not be allowed during the tournament, however, caddies are allowed for the 7-10 year old division. Caddies must be a parent/guardian and must walk with the player. Carts will NOT be allowed for those who are caddying. If a parent would like to assist with the tournament, they must first complete our volunteer background application and online safety training. To learn more about how to become a volunteer click here.

Points Points will be awarded to participants during each tournament based on how they finished within their respective divisions. The highest number of points will be awarded to winners of each division, the second highest number of points will be awarded to second place, and so on. Major tournaments will be worth a greater number of points. Points will be accumulated at the end of the series to determine a qualifiers for the Cup Championship and overall points winner for each division.

Other Series Rules If a player ages out of the division which they began in (i.e. a 13 year old playing in the 11-13 division turns 14 during the series), 75% of their points will transfer with them to the next age division. Players will be allowed to play up a division if they choose, but will not be allowed to move back down a division at any point during the same series.
