KALAMAZOO LADIES CLASSIC 2021:

Thank you for coming to this year’s Kalamazoo Ladies Classic. While the pandemic is winding down, we still ask that you practice social distancing and try and maintain a 6’ distance from others. We also request that you respect others and their wishes in regard to their comfort level of exposure. If they ask you to move a little further away, just move a little further away.

There is no player’s meeting. This letter will work as your meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to come ask them. Also please look for our postings of tournament information on the bulletin board as the day goes on.

Scoring this year will be primarily done using the PDGA live scoring App. The website is: www.pdga/apps/tournament/score/login

The code for this event is: KLC2021!

Only 1 person in your group is needed to keep score electronically. If your group is unable to do scoring electronically, please see Tournament Central to get a paper scorecard. If you use a paper scorecard, then make sure to turn it into Tournament Central after the round. We will be keeping a leaderboard for help in visualizing the standings, but in a case where the leader board may disagree with the electronic hole assignments, the electronic posting will take precedence.

The first round, everyone will be playing short tees. The second round, only the FPO and FA1 will be playing the long tees and everyone else are on the short tees. Please note that Hole #7 has 2 basket placements. Everyone will play the short (original) basket position for both rounds from each tee placement.

The 2-minute warning will be blown at 9:30am for the first round. Please make sure to be on your tee by then and that your group has figured out who is keeping scores. The start of the second round will be posted. The posted time will be the time the 2-minute warning is blown.

Awards are also going to be different and for the amateurs it will take a little longer to get your stuff. There will not be a regular awards ceremony. A list of the winners and how much they won will be posted and when you collect winnings you will need to be checked off our list. The Pros will have their choice to collect cash at the event or have their money sent via PayPal. To limit how close people get while selecting their winnings from our merchandise we will call people to come and select what they want. It will only be a few people at a time and will be done according to how they finished and their divisions. So, if you place, please do not go far from tournament central. So, you can hear when we call you to get your stuff. If you are not vaccinated, we request that you wear a mask while selecting your winnings.


COURSE RULES AND OB’S:

In general, if you throw on or over pavement (paths or roads) or into water you are OB except where noted below. The posts along roads are not the OB lines, it is the pavement line that is the OB.

Hole 1: On the road or in the parking lot is OB. Over the road on the left is OB. There is an OB line inside the tennis courts. If a player is on the other side of the line inside the courts the player is OB and will have to throw from the Drop Zone outside of the tennis courts in front of the basket. There are no mandatory doglegs!

Hole 2: The Long tee is inside the tennis courts and has no mandatory doglegs.

Hole 3: The long tee is from the road.

Hole 7: There are 2 baskets on this hole. Everyone will be shooting at the short (original) basket. The short tee is from the marked area on the paved path on the other side of the bridge from the long tee. The little building close to the basket is OB on top.

Hole 8: The long tee must drive over the paved path to the area where the basket is. The long tee is in an OB area.

Hole 11: The other side of the fence uphill from the basket is OB.

Hole 12: The playground area is OB.

Hole 15: The other side of the fence along the fairway is OB.

Hole 17: Landing on the paved path or road is OB. The area between the road and the path is safe!

Hole 18: Only the road islands where the tees and the basket are, are safe. Landing across the road on the left or right is OB as well as landing on the road.

Hole 19: The playground, pavilion, bathrooms, the pavement around them, and the paved “rink” area are OB.

Hole 21: Inside the tennis courts is OB.

Hole 23: Both the long and short tees are from the paved path. The long tee is closer to the previous hole and the short tee is further down the path.

Hole 24: The posts around the parking lot are OB. The actual OB line is on the parking lot side of the posts. So, the disc needs to be completely inside the parking lot. There is a Mandatory Dogleg on the corner of the parking lot nearest the fairway. It is marked with an orange arrow (there is more than 1 arrow and the closest one to the fairway is the actual Mando). The Drop Zone for missing the Mando is the short tee.
