    1. Course is closed by the Superintendent
    2. Tee times delayed due to frost or lightning
  2. Foursomes will be issued rainchecks that may be redeemed on any day for the remainder of the season if the course is closed.

  6. Our season lottery foursomes are subject to the same “Keep Pace” system the course runs daily. The first half, or the first 10 weeks of the permanent times, each foursome must keep pace at least 7/10 of the time. Groups that do not keep pace 7/10 of the time are subject to moving their permanent time to the end of the lottery. Foursomes that do not keep pace 70% of the time for the season are not eligible for the lottery for the following season. The following maximum playing time criteria is used:
6-10am Must play in 4 hours
After 10am Must play in 4 hours and 10 minutes
