We are really looking forward to seeing you all at Glenview for Round 1 of what promises to be an exciting weekend of junior golf competition. As you can see from the attached tee sheet we have a strong field of qualified players in for this event and as a result each age group flight (12 and under, 13/15 and 16+) is really very open. On Sunday we will find ourselves with a player from each age group being presented with a unique Claret Jug Trophy and our single lowest scorer after both rounds will also receive the additional accolade of becoming our Highlander Tour Champion Golfer of 2021.
As usual for our events ALL scoring over both rounds of play will be input via our dedicated online scoring app. Please ensure you have downloaded it and you have an account in the players name which ensures full access to this event. You can then search for the event by date, and you will find all of the player tee times and pairings pairings are now loaded.
Recording a player score is a simple process once they begin play however, please talk to a member of HJT staff tomorrow if you need any assistance…and don’t forget to charge your phone!
Please note that using the HJT app for scoring is a condition of this competition and no other form of scoring is acceptable. If you need help with the app prior to play, please ask a member of staff for assistance in advance of play commencing.
IMPORTANT NOTE on SCORING:
To ALL players: Your score is YOUR responsibility. If another member of the group, you are playing with agrees to submit everyone’s scores into the app it is still YOUR responsibility to check these scores are input correctly with him/her BEFORE they are finally submitted.
Often the fastest way to check is to ensure you keep your own copy kept on your paper scorecard as a back-up should any issues arise that need to be checked.
All players have been grouped into the above age-based flights and players will play from appropriate age-based yardages which are shown below. After 36 holes are completed and it becomes necessary as a result of two or more players in a flight recording the same score extra hole play-offs will be used to decide a winner and the number of holes will be advised prior to the play-off commencing. If after the agreed number has been reached players are still tied the winning medalist will be decided by a chip-off or by putting at an agreed green or practice area.
Caddies ARE permitted for this event and USGA caddie rules will apply at all times.
Electronic devices which assist with yardages are also permitted for this event.
It is essential that we have a valid contact number for every player out on the course for safety reasons and/or in the event we need to message you in case of emergency or to advise of any incoming weather issues that may force you to take temporary shelter. Please check with Fiona at our player registration desk to ensure we have your contact number correct.
We will provide water on the 1st tee. Please bring additional water and keep yourself hydrated at all times during the competition.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING PLAYER YARDAGES:
Please be advised that we set all player yardages based on player age. On some occasions we are asked by player/parent or coach to increase a player’s total yardage. We fully understand that some developing players may prefer to play from further back and we are happy to support these requests as long as they are made prior to arrival on the first tee. All requests MUST be made at Player Check-In stage or earlier. Requests must be made by either Player, Parent or Coach. Under no circumstances will we consider player requests to play shorter yardages than those we have set.
On arrival tomorrow, and if you intend renting a cart, please head to the cart station alongside the parking lot area and advise that you are playing in our tournament. The attendant will issue you a cart to allow you to load golf clubs etc and a receipt. As soon as possible please head to our “Golfer Registration” area which is located by the Pro Shop and register your arrival with Fiona who will confirm your tee time. Please also collect your player gift from Fiona at registration. Rental carts are NOT included in the entry cost for this event and can be paid inside the Pro Shop ($20 + tax)
Please note that it is always our intention to ensure that players take priority over spectators when rental carts are available. We are not anticipating any shortage of golf carts but please be aware that we do need to look after our players first before spectators.
All players can ride, either on their own, (if old enough and with a valid driver’s license) or alongside a parent. If any player prefers to walk you are welcome to do so. We do stress however that walkers MUST also maintain a steady pace of play at all times.
Range balls will already be laid out for players warm up on the practice area when you arrive.
Please make your way to the 1st tee no later than 10 minutes before your tee time to allow for a short local rule briefing and introduction, if necessary, to your playing partner(s)
On each day we will also operate a Nearest the Pin Competition with prizes. We will advise you on the tee which par 3 we will use for this competition each day.
Following play tomorrow we will update Day 1 scores in the player registration area. This is a convenient spot as its close to the 18th hole and alongside the cart return area. There will be no award recognition ceremony on Saturday, and you are free to leave once your Day 1 round is complete but please do not leave until you have visited the scoring area to confirm your recorded score is correct.
As early as we can on Saturday evening, we will update all the player placings after Day 1 and load Day 2 Tee times and pairings into the HJT golf app for you to view. If we have additional info to pass to you, we will also email.
