MEMO TO PLAYERS

GENERAL

There will be a shotgun start at 9:00 AM. A continental breakfast is included and will be available starting at 8:00AM.  Lunch is also included and will be served immediately following the conclusion of play.

Both the Men’s and Women’s Locker Rooms will be open and competitors are encouraged to use the locker rooms. Please leave an appropriate gratuity for the attendant.

There is a full Driving Range and range balls will be available courtesy of North Hills CC.

Each team will take a cart and the cost is included in the entry fee. Each group will also have a caddie. The caddie fee is $40 per player including tip and is to be paid in cash.

FORMAT

Men will play from the WHITE tees. Women will play from the RED tees.

This is a two-person team championship in the Pinehurst format. In this format each player hits a tee shot from their respective tee. They then hit each other’s ball after which one ball is selected to be played alternately until the ball is holed. Please record only the gross score on the scorecard.

Penalty strokes are not taken into consideration in determining order of play. Also, should a provisional ball be needed on a tee shot, that ball is played by the other player from the same tee as the original ball (a woman from the Men's tee and vice versa).

There will be gross and net prizes. The team handicap will be computed as 60% of the lower handicap of the partners plus 40% of the higher handicap per the USGA recommendation. All handicaps have been updated as of the August 15 revision. Please note that players without verifiable handicaps will not be able to compete for net prizes.

LOCATION

North Hills CC is located at 200 LIE, (North Service Road), Manhasset, N.Y. 11030
