Players will get credit for their own birdies in individual and better ball events. Players are responsible for notifying scorers of their birdie total at each event. No card – No birdies. Eagles and aces count as two birdies.
CONDUCT Clubs hosting the FDS Winter Tour have been very generous and hospitable to host us. It is in our collective best interest to return this consideration with respect to the club, the golf course, and the members and staff. Your sportsmanlike behavior will ensure our continued welcome at these clubs.
CHAMPIONSHIP To be eligible for the championship, you MUST have PAID entries in over 50% of the events that are played. You may prepay an entry (and not play) on or before the date of that particular event, and it will count toward your total for the championship.
RULES OF PLAY “Winter Rules” – lift, clean and place within one club length, no closer to the hole, everywhere. The ball must remain in the same condition – i.e. rough stays in rough, fairway stays in fairway, ball in the water stays in the water (you can go no closer to the hole in more shallow water, but it must stay in the water)
INFORMATION Call or text Jamie Shaffer at 215-915-3809 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions. The first person to email me the correct answer to the following question will receive a free entry. As a junior golfer, when something unfortunate happened on the golf course, FDS legend Dave Roberts had a predilection to a certain curse word. What was that word he delivered with a pubescent whine?
You get one guess only.
