About this tournament

THIS EVENT WILL BE RUN UNDER THE TRUE AMETEUR GUIDELINES SPELLED OUT HERE: https://www.pdga.com/td/true-amateur

Course Specifics:
- As the name suggests, several holes will be designated as island holes. How many, and which holes that will be are to be determined. Some islands will be traditional OB and some will be hazards. Drop zones may or may not be provided.
- OB will be added to several holes thus increasing difficulty.
- We should be able to get out to the course by the Friday before (10/11/19) or earlier if time permits and mark all of the OB and islands. In any case, be prepared for a more difficult layout than the current course. Errant shots will be punished and accuracy will be rewarded.
- Currently, MA4 will not be playing the islands. MA3 will likely be playing one round with islands and one round without. Other divisions such as the FA divisions or any of the age-protected divisions can be determined the day of the event based on what those playing in those divisions want to do.

Divisions:
- Don't see the division you want to play in? Let me know! Feel free to email or post a comment on this event. I can add divisions right up to the day of the event and I need at least 3 players to make a division.

Ace Pool:
- $5 gets you entered into the ace pool and given the short nature of this course there is very likely going to be a few aces.
- The ace pool will be split evenly based on the number of aces and not who got what ace first.
- If there are no aces during tournament rounds then there will be a throw-off. Everyone who enters will get one throw. If there are still no aces then the winner will be determined by CTP.
