Prizes and Hole-In-One contest - We will honor an overall winner of the tournament and each flight will pay out the same number of prizes.  There is also a Hole-In-One contest where each course has a designated hole for the contest.  The first individual during the tournament to score a Hole-In-One at each course will win a new Club Car golf cart from All Seasons Motor Sports.  The hole-in-one contest is being sponsored by Farmers Union Insurance Agency's from the area.  David Bergeman in Forman and Oakes, Lance Gulleson in Lisbon, and Tatum Brandt in LaMoure.

Riding Carts - The cost of renting a riding cart will be $12 at each course.  Each of the courses has a limited supply of carts, so if you would like to rent a cart, you will need to contact each course to reserve.  You may bring your own cart for use during the tournament as well for no additional cost.  Each course has discretion to limit cart use during the tournament due to inclement weather or course conditions.

Rules - USGA Rules are in effect, with the exception of "Winter Rules" at all courses.  "Winter Rules" allow you to take a 'Preferred Lie' on a ball played that is in the fairway of the hole that you are playing.  To minimize slow play, we enforce a 9 stroke maximum per hole rule.  After your ninth stroke, you must pick up you ball and move on. 

Mulligans-There are no mulligans.

Confirmation of Tee Time and Course Assignment
- After registration, you will be sent a confirmation email that will show where you play and when you play.  This email will be sent to the group leader.  It is the group leaders' responsibility to inform the other members of the group of the tee time and course assignment.

Shot Gun Start
- The Shot Gun Start System will be employed and it will be each golfer’s responsibility to be at the assigned tee at his assigned tee-off time.  Failure to do so could result in disqualification.  Please be on time, and start only at your assigned tee and keep play moving along.  Please be courteous and use good judgment.

Score Cards - The official DRN ReadiTech G.O.L.F. scorecards will be distributed at the Club House prior to tee off.  All cards must be turned in at the clubhouse immediately after each round is completed.  Official cards MUST BE USED.  Please check score cards for recent rule changes.  You are responsible for the addition, as well as scoring, on your card.  Please take extra time to ensure your totals are accurate before they are turned in.  They must be signed and attested.  If there are discrepancies between the hole scores and the total score on any card, the hole scores will take precedence in official score totals.

Women Golfers- Women golfers will play from the women’s tee, but will compete in regular flights. Also, the Women's low scorer will be declared the Women's Champion and receive an additional $100 prize in addition to any regular flighting prize.  The next Women's low score will be the Women's Runner-Up, and receive an additional $50 prize.

Overall Champion - The overall champion will receive a $300 prize, in addition to a regular flighting prize.  To be eligible to be the Overall Champion, you must play from the White Tees (Seniors or Women playing from those respective tees are not eligible for the overall championship).  You will be given the option to vie for the overall championship during registration.

Flighting
- Straight flighting will be done on all 36 hole total scores (Seniors and Women's included).  Your position in the tournament will be displayed at each course on Sunday morning, as well as on the drnreaditechgolf.com website after Saturday's rounds.  Ties will be broken using the home course score (Grand Rapids), followed by the 2nd home course score (Oakes), the 3rd home course score (Lisbon), and the 4th home course score (Forman).  A hole by hole comparison of scores will be used next if needed.  Flighting is done by the tournament committee at the post tournament meeting.  Final unofficial scores will be posted on the drnreaditechgolf.com website immediately at the conclusion of the tournament.  If anyone has a question or possible change from the unofficial scores, the inquiry must be made within 24 hours of the conclusion of the tournament by sending an email to:  secretary@drnreaditechgolf.com.  Scores will become official 24 hours after the tournaments conclusion, with no changes being made after that.
