I left/lost a 2022 Safari bask towel somewhere between the practice basket and the 10 basket between 8 and 9 Friday morning. If you find it please bring it to tournament central.

Preliminary tee times posted, pending last minute drops: https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/67420

So I just withdrew and don’t see anyone waitlisted in my division. I’m a sponsor, does that let me transfer my spot to another player in my division or in any division? Thanks

Daniel Humphreys   June 22, 2023 at 2:55am

Hello Pete. I reached out to you separately to chat more through the options about this in detail.

Darren Mounts    June 20, 2023 at 9:00pm

Any info on the order of divisions for teeing off?

Bryan Schmitz   June 20, 2023 at 11:30pm

Order of divisions for tee off added to the schedule on the main page

Darren Mounts   June 21, 2023 at 3:21pm

Thanks Bryan!

Tullin Valdez   June 22, 2023 at 3:52am

Any way to flip the divison orders on Sat? Am50 is scheduled for the earliest times all weekend as it stands now. Pretty please….

Dheen weening    June 20, 2023 at 3:52pm

Preliminary tee times boys? Thanks, bye!

Will there be an event on Thursday day / evening (e.g. tourney dubs) that will occupy the course, or will it be open to practice for anyone?

Bryan Schmitz   June 20, 2023 at 3:10pm

Course is open to play thursday

Connor Nolan    June 19, 2023 at 7:51pm

Hi! When should we expect to receive the caddy book and information about the weekend? Looking forward to the tournament!

Bryan Schmitz   June 20, 2023 at 3:10pm

Thursday at the latest

Holly Wilkerson    June 19, 2023 at 4:21pm

If someone is still on the waitlist by the start of the tournament, should they still show up just in case? Will there be ghost cards or something like that? If yes, what time should someone on the waitlist for MA1 show up? Thanks in advance!

Bryan Schmitz   June 20, 2023 at 3:11pm

We don't plan on adding any additional spots for day of. If they are still on the waitlist by the start of the tournament I wouldn't count on playing and you will get a refund.

Kevin Callahan    June 18, 2023 at 4:15pm

I need to bow out of the tournament. Since there is one person on the wait list for MP50, will I get a full refund?

Hunter Faustino   June 18, 2023 at 4:42pm

Do you know what the tee time for FA1 will be on Saturday?

Bryan Schmitz   June 20, 2023 at 3:12pm

No we do not

Shawn Mercy   June 22, 2023 at 12:50am

Division orders are the same for all 3 days. So once tee times for Friday are published, you'll have a really good idea what it will be for the other two days. FA1 is around the middle of tee times...so prob between 10 - noon.

Kevin Davidson    June 16, 2023 at 4:59pm

If there are available spots in a division (6/8 in fpo) that don’t get filled, will another division expand? If so, when would that happen? Asking for a friend who is #2 on the waitlist in mpo as of now. And I am a friend to myself. Thanks!

Hunter Faustino   June 16, 2023 at 8:56pm

Yes they will. We'll have divisions finalized sometime early to middle of next week. Also, you're now #1 on the wait-list

Kevin Davidson   June 16, 2023 at 11:35pm

Great, thank you!

Royce Friedmann    June 8, 2023 at 10:45pm

When is the last day to drop from the tournament but still get a full refund?

Bryan Schmitz   June 13, 2023 at 7:23pm

No that is not accurate. If you are on waitlist and don't get in to the tournament, you get a refund. If you are in the tournament and drop and there is someone on the waitlist to take your spot we will give you a refund. We would ask that if you are in the tournament and plan on dropping plea ... more

Mark Reynolds-Delaney   June 14, 2023 at 2:24am

There's the answer we're looking for

Christian Brockmann   June 14, 2023 at 4:06am

Thank you for this!!

Phil Mills    June 8, 2023 at 7:27pm

Hey, do you know when you anticipate posting a schedule for practicing the layout(s) for the event? Thanks.

Hunter Faustino   June 8, 2023 at 7:42pm

Hey there Phil. In true safari fashion, the holes will change day by day and there won't be any formal opportunity to practice the course as it will play. Parks and rec has specifically asked that no one practice across the street at the temporary holes as well prior to the event.

Phil Mills   June 9, 2023 at 12:56am

Gotcha. Makes sense. Thanks!

David "DRoc101" Ralston    June 4, 2023 at 3:50am

I am a bit confused. Frank Messenger dropped from MA2 and I was #1 on the waitlist. It looks like someone else was put in that spot instead.

Hunter Faustino   June 4, 2023 at 4:31am

He transferred his sponsorship to someone else. Sponsorships are non refundable so we encourage sponsors who need to back out to find someone to trade with.

David "DRoc101" Ralston   June 4, 2023 at 4:37am

Gotcha, makes sense

David "DRoc101" Ralston   June 4, 2023 at 4:37am

Thanks for the quick response!

Todd Williams    May 27, 2023 at 12:07am

Does any local people playing the tournament have place to crash Friday and Saturday I can pay of course.

Hunter Faustino   May 27, 2023 at 12:50am

Hey Todd! Might have a bit more luck over on the club Facebook page. Happy hunting!

David "DRoc101" Ralston    May 25, 2023 at 2:59pm

Any word on when the division caps will be raised to satisfy 102A? https://www.pdga.com/rules/competition-manual/102

I'd join but there's 22 people on wait-list and I don't have confidence I'll be able to play if I registered and hoped that many people drop out in 2 weeks

Bryan Schmitz   June 1, 2023 at 7:39pm

that is all

Bailey Brown   June 1, 2023 at 11:24pm

What about for MPO? Seeing that MPO had 32 the last few years, I'm hoping that you'll open more spots there as well.

Alan Rackelmann    May 24, 2023 at 9:47pm

Can you tell me what the approximate tee times for MP60 will be on Sunday 6/25? I have an afternoon commitment that I may need to flake on if not finished by 1pm

Bryan Schmitz   May 24, 2023 at 10:22pm

That is impossible to determine at this time, I would be prepared to flake on it.

Alan Rackelmann   May 25, 2023 at 12:57am

ok thx

Kirby Ralston    May 16, 2023 at 4:02pm

I accidentally signed for pro 60 instead of am. Can I get on waitlist for MA60 instead?

David "DRoc101" Ralston   May 16, 2023 at 10:17pm

Huh, another Ralston... cousin?

Jeffrey McCormick    May 16, 2023 at 2:41am

Holy crap. Submitted at 7 and still number 9. I suck lol. Someone drop out of open ????????


Phil J    May 16, 2023 at 2:11am

How much $$ to pay a few people to drop from MA2. Trying to figure out the final bill I’m #13 on waitlist.

Christian Brockmann   May 16, 2023 at 2:17am

You actually may get in. They collapse divisions that don't get filled, and or they may open the division your in for the top X people on the waitlist. If your impatient, then possibly message some of SFDGC leadership.
