Local Houston Tour Rules

Houston Amateur Golf Tour Rules
All rules below subject to change at the tournament site.
SCORING     
All scoring is by scratch score on a hole, no handicap.
All ties for first place in each Flight will be broken by scorecard playoff, and will be decided by the #1, #2, #3 highest handicap holes, etc. until the tie is broken.

RULES

  1. TRIPLE BOGEY is maximum on any hole, this is a National pace of play rule, so please pick up if you reach 3 over par on any hole, and mark scorecard with a triple bogey on that hole.
  2. Unless instructed otherwise, Both Sides of the golf Course will be played as lateral hazard, except where OUT of BOUNDS markers (fences, and roads) are present on that hole. If these are present on a hole then you must then follow the out of bounds rule of stroke and distance, if your ball crossed over them.
  3. No Gimmie Putts, you must putt all putts, with the exception that you may pick up if you are three or more over par for that hole (a Triple bogey)
  4. USGA rules apply, if you have a rules question, play two balls for the remainder of that hole and a decision will be made after the round, by the rules committee. 
  5. You may forgo honors on the tee box, play ready golf.
  6. Rangefinders may be used during tournament. (With no slope feature)

Tournament Tees
Due to weather conditions, tees may be adjusted by the rules committee to insure a fair and competitive tournament. You will be instructed before each tournament what tees will be used for that round for the different flights.
These may be different than was posted in earlier emails.

 
OPTIONAL Side Events   
Modified Stableford:
            Our Houston Amateur Golf Tour is different than many of the other Golfweek Amateur Golf Tours as we have a Modified Stableford side event that involves the whole field (all five flights). This is very popular as it pays out more prize money than the normal skins game and your quota adjusts for the next Houston Tour event, so everyone has a better chance to win the BIG money. If you don't play good in an event then your quota will go down for the next Houston Tour event you play in, giving you a better chance to win stableford money.  For more on this see Modified Stableford web page.
Skins:
This season the Houston Tour will also have a GROSS SKINS game that will include golfers of ALL five flights if they want to participate. Since tees played are shorter for some of the higher handicap flights this should be fair for just about everyone.   

CANCELLATIONS: 
Once you sign up for a Houston Tour event you are responsible for payment, this is still the case if you were planning on paying at check-in. This is due to, some of the golf courses require me to pre-pay green fees a few days in advance as per our tournament contact. However, I understand that sometimes you must cancel playing in an event. If this happens please notify me as soon as you can. If notified early enough, I should be able to get you back your full entry fee, and I will apply it towards your next Houston Tour event. If it is within 24 hours of the event please call or text me at 832-338-0405. If by text make sure you get a response. If you just don't show up for an event and/or don't cancel with me before check-in is over for that event, then your entry fee may be forfeited.
I don't want to keep your entry fees if you cannot play. Just let me know you are cancelling as soon as you can, and everything should work out.
