The Committee has put a 60 day test into play. During this 60 day period, the age rules shown below will be modified. We are looking at this to help make everyone competitive. The Senior PGA Tour starts at 50, so we are modifying our rules similarly. The SG Committee does not have everyone's age, so if you are between 50 & 55, please reply to this email and let us know. If a tee change is due, it will be made. The official Starting Date for the rule change is Friday Oct 9 and ending on November 6.
The following guidelines will be used by the Scratch Game Committee, however, the Committee may, by majority vote, determine a different tee placement for any player in the interest of skill leveland competition.
