2020 Whitney Farms Men’s Club Temporary Tournament Guidelines

Effective May 5, here is a list of guidelines and procedures to follow for all Men’s Club events until further notice. 

  1. You may call for tee times up to 14 days in advance.

  2. In order to sign up for a specific tournament (either Saturday or Sunday), you must  tell Billy Street (or whoever is at the check-in window in the Pro Shop) that you are playing in the tournament before teeing off each day (Saturday and Sunday).  One member can register the full foursome.  Billy will maintain the official sign in sheet in the Pro Shop.   

  3. Re-entry Fees:  You may re-enter a tournament on Sunday by notifying Billy as described above. No money will be exchanged during this time.  The Board will keep track of re-entry money owed and notify you of the amount owed when we return to normal operation.  Failure to pay the money owed at this time will result in a temporary suspension of your playing privileges in WFMC events. 

  4. One person in your group will need to be responsible for keeping a scorecard (available under the Tournaments tab on our website (wfmclub.com)) or now available at the course. Only the person keeping the scorecard will need to sign the scorecard.  You will then have until 6 p.m. on the day played to take a picture of the completed scorecard and email it to wfmclub@gmail.com.  Any scorecards received after 6 p.m. on the day played will not be considered for that weekend’s tournament. 

  5. Please follow the requirements for scorecards.

  6. Following USGA and CSGA recommendations related to the absence of rakes in the bunkers, we will allow preferred lies in the bunkers meaning you can lift your ball, “foot rake” to create a smooth surface then replace your ball in the bunker in a spot near to where your ball came to rest.  Please also do your best to smooth out the area after you play your shot.  

  7. Winter Rules - Lift, clean and place your ball one club length, no closer to the hole, in your own fairway.

  8. Due to safety concerns there will not be any “closest to the pin” contests at this point in time.   They will resume when things return to normal.  

  9. Please continue to follow the social distancing guidelines and CSGA Best Practices for playing (https://www.csgalinks.org/content/csga/golf-courses-close-due-to-coronavirus).  As each of you have done so far please weigh your personal beliefs when making a decision to play golf or enter in any men’s club event.
