 Summer Open Tournament Rules

  • Play from the Blue Tees
  • Summer Rules are in effect. The ball is to be played down with the exception of the Local Rule regarding embedded balls outside of a hazard. Bare areas inside of 15 yards of the green to be played as Ground Under Repair. This includes areas “marked” as GUR and those not. Those areas not marked are subject to approval of playing partners “prior” to taking a drop. Obvious areas on all fairways that should have been marked GUR and are not – are entitled to free relief once approval is obtained from playing partners as well. There is “NO RELIEF” given in the rough, except where permitted under RGCA and Local Rules and where marked as GUR.
  • Handicaps used will  be RCGA Handicaps.
  • Target Pace of Play for this tournament is 4 hours and 10 minutes. Groups over 4 hours and 20 minutes will be penalized unless they are tight to the group in front of them. That means within 8 minutes of the group in front. Play ready golf. There is no penalty in Stroke Play for hitting out of turn. If you have a playing partner who is slower than the rest of the group politely ask them to “move their ass”. Slow play will not be tolerated. Multiple 3-minute ball searches are not a slow play excuse. Penalties will be invoked by the Men’s Club Captain and Handicap Chair at their discretion.
    • All other rules will be governed by RCGA.
    • Payouts will be for the best 4 gross scores and the best 3 net scores in each flight.
    • Flights will be: High Handicap [TBA] and above,   Low Handicap [TBA] and lower.
    • The Deuce pot will be golf balls. High caps on Hole 13 both days. Low caps on Hole 17 both days
    • Two scorecards are to be kept by each group, one paper and one electronic ( for the leaderboard). Because of the difficulties with the Golf Canada app some are experiencing we are returning to the paper copy as the official scorecard for the time being. Please ensure that the scores for each player match up prior to submitting your score card. These scores are to be posted as “Tournament Scores” in the Handicap Computer.
    • If unsure of a possible ruling – play a second ball and record the scores for both balls until a ruling from the Handicap/Rules Committee can be obtained.
    • Sunday tee time groupings will be made up based on Saturday results, with the top 4 low net scores in each flight and top 8 low gross scores receiving later tee times. All other groupings will be done pairing low and high handicaps.
