Please call (772) 562-2775 to arrange your practice round. The proper place to practice your golf swing is on the driving range, hitting multiple shots on the course is unacceptable. Caddies & Spectators Caddies and spectators are always welcome at FSGA Championships. Only players are allowed to ride in carts unless otherwise determined. If a player employs a caddie, the caddie MUST walk, and the player’s clubs must remain on the golf cart. Spectator carts will only be available Monday through Wednesday based on availability. Stroke Play Check Point Pace of Play Policy – Checkpoint System In order to accommodate all players, it is essential that the game be played at a brisk pace and the stated pace of play will be posted on the notice to players. Please refer to the end of the Information Packet for the complete Stroke-Play Pace of Play Policy.
The FSGA uses a checkpoint pace of play system at all competitions that it conducts in the state of Florida. There are NO warnings to the players and players are not timed. To avoid being in breach, each group must complete each nine within the stated time or within 15 minutes of the group ahead or each player in the group will be subject to a one stroke penalty (two strokes for a second breach). This pace of play policy places the full responsibility for pace of play on the players. The FSGA pace of play policy utilizes a two checkpoint system. • Players will not receive warnings. • Players are not timed • Each group is responsible for monitoring their own pace. • To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole: 1. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead, or 2. Under the allotted time. • Checkpoints at each course will be on holes #9 and #18. • All players in a group in breach are subject to penalty. Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green. 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, windspeed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional functions are actually used. Carts All players must ride during practice rounds and Championship rounds. On-Site Registration There will be a registration table set-up next to the golf shop to pick up your tee gift and player information on Saturday, June 8th from 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM. This is NOT a mandatory registration. Charges Vero Beach Country Club accepts Cash, Visa/MasterCard and American Express for payment. Spike Policy It is a condition of the Florida State Golf Association that shoes with traditionally designed spikes, regardless of composition (e.g. ceramic, plastic, etc.) or design, made of either or partially made of metal ( when metal comes in contact with the surface of the putting green) are prohibited. Penalty for breach of this condition: Disqualification.
Approximate Yardages NOTE: These are just â€œapproximateâ€? yardages for the Championship to give estimates for practice round purposes, and are subject to change. More approximate yardages will be posted online and in the proshop a day or two prior to the event.
STROKE PLAY PACE OF PLAY POLICY The FSGA Championship Pace of Play Policy utilizes a two checkpoint system. • • •
Players will not receive warnings. Each group is responsible for monitoring their own pace. To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole: 1. Under the allotted time, or 2. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead. Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated. All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.
PENALTIES First Breach of Round = 1 stroke penalty to each player in the group. Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group. NOTIFICATION Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official either verbally or signaled by a Red Card. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. It is the player’s responsibility to recognize when a breach has occurred at each checkpoint and penalties must be recorded on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred (usually holes #9 or #18). POSITION First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy. Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green. CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group. Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard. DEFINITIONS Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.
Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”
