Summer USGA rules govern play. All men players including seniors will use the white tees…the senior category for the Esto Lakewood tournament will be 60 and up. Since women’s participation is limited, there will only be one women’s category playing from the ladies tees. In addition to lowest men, women and senior scores, there will also be a "Callaway" scoring category (same as last year). Please make sure you hand in your signed (and legibly completed) score card to the Pro Shop upon completing your round. Saturday players must bring their cards to the Lakewood Estonian House no later than 6pm and give to the gate attendants.
If there are any ties for lowest score the following tiebreak rules will apply: Low Back Nine Score (Holes 10 Thru 18) if still tied, then Low Last Six Holes ( 13 thru 18) If still tied, then Low last Three Holes (16 thru 18) if still tied, then Low last 18th hole, if still tied then Score card playoff starting on hole #1
FOOD and BEVERAGES
Lakewood does not permit outside food and beverage to be brought on the property. Coolers are not permitted on the course or club property. (please note: their beverage cart service includes beer and they’re pretty good about making the rounds on a timely basis)
A collared shirt is required also no jeans, denim, tee shirts, gym shorts, swim wear, cutoffs, or metal spikes
PACE OF PLAY
Players are required to abide by the Pace of Play policy. If players do not abide by the policy they will be forced to move up a hole or skip a hole if deemed necessary.
Lastly, if you won a trophy last year please make sure you bring it with you or send it with someone that will be there and turn it in to either Carl Skonberg or Eddie Tomson.
Here’s looking forward to a great outing…see you in Lakewood!
