GBG Tour Events Rules & Format
**These events are staged at various locations around the US and the world.
FORMAT: Individual stroke play event, USGA handicap or provide 5 scorecards so that we can create your handicap prior to the event. GBG Tour Officials will track all participants scores for GBG Tour events. For those golfers that do not maintain an "official" USGA handicap the GBG Tour Handicap will be utilized for all events. The particular course handicap will be factored in once you register for the event.
Team Event - Mandatory $10 per player
Net/Gross - Optional $5 per player
Skins - Optional $5 per player
Team event: 2-4 person teams drawn at random pay out 1-4 places depending on participation.
Net and Gross: 1st and 2nd places or more depending on how many people participate.
Skins: Payout amount will be determined by dividing the total skins pot by the number skins won.
1. Pick up after double bogey - speeds up play
2. Out-of-Bounds: Player clearly hits the ball OB, announces and hits a Provisional ball(third stroke); the OB player has the option of selecting provisional hit ball for the fourth shot or (OPTION) he may take a drop near the OB area, and this will also be a fourth shot. The other OB play whereby the player DOES NOT PLAY a Provisional ball and is OB gives the player NO OPTION. Player must hit from nearby OB area and will be hitting his FOURTH shot. Simply stated: We do not want the OB player going back to the original hit area, thus delaying the game.
Final Rules Decisions - All rules issues will be fully investigated and the decision will be made by the Tournament Director.
