Tour Weather Policy

Simply put, if the course allows us on the course, we play. Bad weather is not of itself good reason for discontinuing play. Players are expected to come prepared to play in all conditions.  Delays or cancelling a tournament will be determined by the golf course and their staff. If a course becomes unplayable during a tournament, the tournament may be declared official if at least 9 holes have been played.
