What is the “Bump” Rule.
Players will be assigned to a flight based on their score in the first round.  If, in the second round, the player shoots 9 shots or more lower than the low base score of his/her flight, the player will be moved to the next lower flight.  For example, a player shoots 90 in the first round and on that basis falls within the parameters of Flight B (88 – 94).  If, in the second round, the player shoots 79 or lower, he will be re-assigned (or “bumped”) to Flight A. 

Are there local rules.  Yes.  A local rules sheet will be distributed to each player prior to play.


The Rules Committeewill be the Pro-Shop professional staff.

Waiting List.  Once regular entries have been closed, you may still submit an entry form and fee to be placed on the waiting list.  If you do not make it into the field your fee will be refunded.
