The SFLAGT will aim to achieve proper pace of play in all its events. We aim to complete our rounds in less than 4:20. The tour encourages ready golf.

A group is determined to be out of position when they have an open par 4 in front of them, or are more than 15 minutes behind the group in front of them. A group or player may be warned once, then they are subject to penalty at the discretion of the Tour Director.

 

4.       Rules of Golf

The SFLAGT will follow the USGA Rules of Golf for all events. A player may contact the Rules official or Tournament Director in case of a Rules question or follow Rule 3-3.

 3-3. Doubt as to Procedure

a. Procedure

 In stroke play, if a competitor is doubtful of his rights or the correct  procedure during the play of a hole, he may, without penalty, complete  the hole with two balls.

After the doubtful situation has arisen and before taking further action, the competitor must announce to his marker or fellow-competitor that he intends to play two balls and which ball he wishes to count if the Rulespermit.

The competitor must report the facts of the situation to the Committeebefore returning his score card. If he fails to do so, he is disqualified.

Note: If the competitor takes further action before dealing with the doubt

5.       Arrival at Event/First Tee

Upon arrival at the host Club, player must check in with SFLAGT. Player does not need to check in with Golf course.  Players will be given hole location sheets and scorecards prior to teeing off, as well as any other pertinent event information.

 

Rangefinders

Rangefinders are allowed during competition.

 

Caddies

Caddies are allowed at SFLAGT events.

 

6.       Scoring

SFLAGT events will aim to provide a leader board system, tracking player scores at a minimum of two locations. Players will report their scores after 9 holes of play, and again one more time before the completion of the round. Being that these are One day, 18 hole events we want players to know where they stand in the competition and the Tour Director will provide that information to players who are interested at the two check point locations.

 

7.       Post Round

Players will report to the scoring area after their round to review their official scorecards, sign and return to the Tournament Committee.

 

8.       Ties

Any ties (for First Place only) will be broken via Sudden death playoff, immediately after completion of play and all scorecards accounted for.

 

9.       Prizes/Awards

Players will receive prizes and Trophies for 1st place. Visa Gift Cards or Pro Shop Credit will be distributed to 1st place, and depending on Field size Runner Up/3rdPlace

Handicap/Flight

What the players are saying..

"The SFLAGT is fun. It's competitive golf, with a bunch of good guys, at a great rotation of courses! If you want to sharpen your game, and see how good you can get, you HAVE to play competitive golf, it's why I make sure I play as many of these as I can. The SFLAGT is the best local tournament practice you can get, in a relaxed friendly environment."

Rob Bryans, Miami Beach

 

"The tournaments are very well run, the competition is excellent and we are competing on the best courses in the area. It's a great way to keep your game sharp and tournament ready without having to travel."

Tom Christensen, Coral Springs

 

"...To have these one-day, weekend events is just great...And I can't say enough about the venues: some top-rated courses that normally wouldn't be available to me."

Doug Phillips, Pembroke Pines

 

"The SFLAGT has been an excellent tour for the locals. This is just what I have been looking for..Being able to play the best courses in South Florida against great friendly competition on weekends...I look forward to playing the SFLAGT every month."

Justin Onorati, Davie

 

"Playing in organized events against players of the same caliber is what golf is all about. I have practiced and played with friends for years, and playing against my level of competitors brings out the best (and worst) of my game, and this is the reason I play with the South Florida Am Tour"

Todd Williams, Southwest Ranches
