2017 Bittersweet Tournament Information


Tournament Information

** Our event at Bittersweet Golf Club tomorrow has been cancelled**
With the forecast of thunderstorms all day - not only will the course not be ready, the safety of our players is the primary reason.  We are not going to try and play through thunderstorms.
The event will be rescheduled, with a date yet to be determined.  We will hold all registrations for the tournament and will issue refunds for those players that can not make the rescheduled date.  More details to come.  Thank you for your patience.

Registration opens at 7:15AM - players check in and get scorecards, local rules, pay for Skins & Pins and receive final instructions for the day.  All players are expected to check in no later than 45 minutes before their tee time to receive last minute updates, tournament rules, and additional information.  


Local Tournament Rules & Pace of Play

It is the players responsibility to be knowledgeable regarding USGA Rules, Local tour policies and the NEW updated Pace of Play policy.  Hitting your 1st tee shot of the day is an agreement to these policies.


Local Rules            USGA RULES            Pace of Play Policy


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. If a tournament is cancelled a makeup date will be announced as soon as one is determined.
