GPS AND RANGE FINDERS: In this competition, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance ONLY. However, if, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect her play (e.g., gradient, wind-speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional functions are actually used. A prohibited device shall include any cell phone or smart phone (e.g., i-phone, blackberry, etc.) capable of operating an application for yardage or other conditions of golf information.
FOOD: A complimentary lunch will be available on both days of the competition after play.
CADDIES/CARTS: All players are required to walk. Contestants may carry their own bag or bring their own caddie. Caddies must also walk. Pull carts may be used if the club allows them.
PLAYOFF: A tie for the Championship only will be determined by a sudden-death playoff immediately after the final scores have been posted. All other ties will be decided by a method recommended by the USGA. This method states that we match cards to determine the winner based on the best score for the last nine holes. It is the player’s responsibility to be ready to play when called to the tee.
PRIZES: Prizes will be awarded to the low gross finishers in each flight. The overall low gross scorer will have her name engraved on the Betty Richart Trophy.
