                   2020 Local rules – Indiana/W Kentucky Golfweek Amateur Tour/Senior Amateur Tour


1.       Pace of play will be monitored very heavily this year.  The 18-minute rule will be implemented this year.  Each group will have 18 minutes to turn your score card in after the group in front of you.  PENALTY:  2 strokes for each player in your group. The first group out will have 4 hr. 30 minutes to finish their round, unless the public groups ahead of them are greater than 4 hr. 30 min.  All groups should finish their round in 4 hrs. 30 min.  PLAY READY GOLF


2.       Prize Pool winners.  You will have the option to carryover your winnings and apply to a future tournament entry fee. 



3.       Cancellation/no show fee - $25.  If you have not notified the TOUR DIRECTOR by phone or email by 5:00 on Friday, you will be charged a $25 cancellation fee.  Prize Pool payouts are determined before the tournament.  If the course charges me green fee for a no show, you will also be responsible to pay that as well.


4.       Flight winners/Player of the Year awards will be based on the tour website points standings.  A player MUST play in 7 events to be eligible to win their flight or Player of the Year award. Any player that moves up a flight (ie: B flight-A flight), will not lose points in calculation of Player of the Year.  The calculation will be done manually by Tour Director. 



5.       Skins will be $10/flight, Super Skins (all flights) will be $10.


6.       Closest to Pin will be $5.  Payout will be on all Par 3’s.  (ex: 20 players @ $5 = $100.  Payout $25 for each par 3).



7.       All 2019 USGA rule changes will apply except for the Out of Bounds rule. A ball hit out of bounds will require a rehit from original spot + 2 stroke penalty.

 Prize Payouts for Guests

Guests will not be allowed to place any higher than 3rd place in any event for all flights. If a guest places higher than 3rd place, they will be moved to 3rd place and those that were in 2nd and 3rd place will be moved up to 1st and 2nd place, provided that they are not guests and have met the minimum 2 tournament rule for New Members. Prize money awarded to any guest for placing must be used towards the purchase of a membership or future event. Any cash games winnings will be paid to the guest.
