Tuesday Play Day Procedures
The procedures for Tuesday Play Day are as follows:
a) Notice of the Tuesday games to be played will be posted on the website. Sign up will be available in Chelsea thirty (30) days in advance.
b) When there is a Special Tournament with an entry fee (excluding LAGOS and Home & Home & Home hosted by the SBWGA-18) or a Major Tournament with a multiple-day commitment, there will be a Tuesday Play Day (TPD) game for those players not participating in the Tournament. Sign-up will be through Chelsea.
c) ACE Day: Members will play from Red/Yellow, Red or Red/Aqua tee boxes based on their initial selection during membership sign up at the beginning of the year. Tuesday Play Day (Non-ACE Day): Members will play from either Red or Red/Aqua tee boxes for all Tuesday Play Days, excluding ACE Day, based on their initial selection during membership sign up at the beginning of the year. The tee box decision can be changed one time each year, effective July 1. Players who wish to change their tee box may email the Tuesday Play Day Chair or TPD.SBWGA18@gmail.com by June 20. New tee box selection will go into effect on July 1. The Tuesday Play Day Chair schedules this monthly event. On ACE Day, all players must putt out or be disqualified. Overall Low Gross and Overall Low Net winners over the field will determine the ACEs of the Month. Monthly ACE winners are limited to one win in low gross OR one win in low net per calendar year.
d) Pairings will be posted on Chelsea no later than Saturday prior to play. Final pairings will be posted on Chelsea on the Monday prior to play.
e) Tuesday Play Day games will mostly be a combination of individual games, 4-person games and Pick Your Partner (PYP) team formats. Most games will be suitable for posting. When the game is a team format or Stableford game, a player who is “out of the hole” or cannot improve her standing in the game of the day, should pick up her ball to maintain pace of play. She will record her “most likely score” for that hole. In team games like “best ball” and match play a player may pick up if she is out of the hole. The player must record her “most likely score.” See Posting Scores, item 4, Incomplete Holes.
f) If the committee considers that a player is guilty of a serious breach of etiquette, it may impose a penalty of disqualification under Rule 1.2.
g) Each player is responsible for verifying her correct handicap and attesting her own score (both may be subject to disqualification if in error) per USGA Rule 3.
h) Scorecards: For all events, two (2) scorecards must be kept. Both scorecards will be turned in to the TPD Committee. Scores must be checked hole by hole and nine-hole gross scores tallied before the scorecard is returned. Signatures from every player are required on the master scorecard.
i) Ties on Tuesday Play Days: The Tuesday Play Day Chair will combine winnings for tied scores and divide the winnings among the tied players. This will not apply to a gross payout, which will utilize the USGA card off procedure (described in Section IX, paragraph 6).
j) Blind Draws: For team events on Tuesday Play Days, should there be a “blind draw” required to create a foursome, the person who is designated as the “blind draw” for a team will not be eligible to win Sweeps payouts as a member of that team.
k) Cancellation of Tuesday Play Days, Special Tournaments: Cancellation of any tournament is at the discretion of the Chair and the Golf Professional where applicable.
l) The TPD Committee will post all players scores according to WHS rules.
m) Regardless of where a player begins on the rotation of courses, on the SaddleBrooke/Tucson course, Tucson is the back nine; on the Tucson/Catalina course, Catalina is the back nine; on the Catalina/SaddleBrooke course, SaddleBrooke is the back nine.
