Taking into consideration the gravity of the Covid situation, we are fully prepared to implement and include the following measures to promote, adhere and exceed suggested safety and social distancing protocol.

Online players meeting and hole assignments -
Rounds 1 and 2:
All players would show up, utilize designated practice areas and then proceed directly to their starting holes. Players may use their starting holes to warm up.
NO MORE THAN 4 PLAYERS ON ANY CARD.

HOLE ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE ON THE PDGA EVENT PAGE-
https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/49074


Digital scorecards -
Players must agree to score and submit scorecards digitally on the PDGA webpage. This will require zero person to person contact.
6ft minimum distance rule -
We will repeatedly suggest all players adhere to this suggestion

Lunch separation -
Players will be encouraged and policed to stay distanced at lunch between rounds one and two.

Round 3 on tee-times-
Round 3's tee times will run from approx 9am to 1pm on Sunday, cards of 4 players. This will minimize the amount of players near Headquarters at any one time. Warm-up areas will be designated, well away from HQ. We will limit the number of players allowed in these areas, players with approaching tee-times will have priority.


Payouts -
Payouts for Pro divisions will be done via Paypal.

Payouts for amateur divisions will be handled as each division comes in. They will be handled 3 at a time in order from 1st to last. We will rope off an area and have players/patrons in that area distanced. Additionally, we will ask that players sanitize their hands (provided by us) before and after looking through the inventory.

Sales-
ALL onsite sales will be handled as above, 3 at a time and same distancing measures apply.

Spectators (are allowed) -
All above suggestions, especially the 6ft rule, will apply to spectators. We would love for area residents and players to come out and follow along with the areas best, provided its done in a safe manner.
