Good morning everyone
Thank you for your player registration for this exciting 36 Hole Junior Tournament. This is our tournament day 28 of our 2023 season and we are very much looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow at Nancy Lopez Legacy GC in The Villages. Venue information and directions are found by clicking HERE This ranked tournament will attract player rankings points from iWanamaker rankings and Junior Golf Scoreboard.
Below this message you will find individual tee times, pairings, yardages and player flight/group info for this competition. We will commence play at 11.56 AM on hole number 1 of Ashley Meadows Course. Our back 9 will see us turning for home on the Erinn Glenn Course at Lopez Legacy. Directions to the Erinn Glenn course will be given on the first tee tomorrow before play.
It is important that all players, or a parent, check in on arrival with Fiona at our Golfer Registration Area which will be situated in front of the putting green. Check in will be open from 9.45am. If any tee time or pairing changes are necessary, we will communicate these to you at that point. Range balls for warm up and practice information will also be issued to players at check-in.
It’s also EXTREMELY important to check that we have the correct phone number on file in the event that we need to contact you with a weather text message or relay important info while you are out on the course. If your number is NOT the one you used on the Player Registration Form for this event, please advise Fiona.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING GOLF CART RENTALS: If you require a golf cart rental cost is $25 plus tax. Please note that we have been working with the venue to ensure enough carts are available FOR PLAYERS ONLY who require them. Additional spectator carts may be available later but can only be allocated to spectators after players receive their carts. At check in we will issue players with a golf cart player pass which should be shown to the staff in the ProShop. This will identify that you are playing in our tournament and wish to rent a cart. Please do not pay for or take a golf cart from the venue until AFTER checking in first. At the end of each day of play please empty and return your cart to the cart staff as quickly as possible.
At many of our tournament’s players can choose to rent/ride in cart, you can drive cart if you are 15+ and have a valid driver’s license or be driven by a parent or coach. Alternatively, you can walk with your own provided trolley or carry bag. If you do choose the option to walk, please remember that it is extremely important every player maintains a good pace of play.
Please note caddies are only permitted at our tour events for players aged 15 or less. Caddies MUST observe USGA caddie rules and pace of play MUST be observed. If your group falls behind play, we will request you play “Ready Golf” in order to keep pace with the group in front. Electronic devices to assist with yardages are also acceptable for use at this competition.
All official scoring for this tournament will only be accepted by inputting scores into our dedicated online scoring app, which can be downloaded from your phone’s app store, by searching for the letters CJGT. Please download the CJGT app and register your player in advance of your arrival at the tournament. If you have issues doing so it is better to identify these to us before your arrival as we don’t always get enough time to assist and resolve things quickly once play begins.
We will also request that you keep a paper scorecard record which can be used as a reference/backup should any discrepancies or errors be made in the app. If using the scoring app for the first time, you will first have to register by inputting your details in the CJGT app. Please only do so by USING THE PLAYERS NAME and confirm that you are a PLAYER in this tournament and NOT a Parent or Spectator. Once you have done so you can then search for tomorrow’s competition in the Find an Event area where you will find the full list of players and tee times have been loaded into the app already.
Please note that if you are not a player in this tournament but you would like to follow live scoring you can register as a parent or spectator. There is a charge to do this which is set by iWanamaker (who created and distribute the app) The cost for a single user for a single tournament is $8 and a full year season ticket costs $30. Please ask if you are unsure about registering in the CJGT app.
Please note that when searching in your phone’s app store for the CJGT app please look for, and then download, the one that looks like this:
Scoring via the CJGT app is a simple process and we can demonstrate this prior to play. Players, please bear in mind that YOUR score on each hole is ultimately YOUR responsibility even if you are not the person within your group who is inputting it to the app. We always suggest that you double check it has been entered correctly before you finalize it on 18. If you do notice ANY discrepancy, please bring it to our attention immediately.
As always, as an additional exciting and fun element, we will also be operating a nearest-the-pin competition tomorrow and on Sunday, sponsored by Edwin Watts Golf, for all players, with a $25 gift card prize up for grabs for the player who hits closest to the pin. Tomorrow this competition will take place on hole number 8 of Ashley Meadows. Please note that our nearest the pin competition will also be recorded into the CJGT app.
Please make your way to the 1st tee 10 minutes before play where we will provide a short briefing to players on any local rules that may apply to this competition. See also local rules we have added into the CJGT app.
Weather text service: Please be assured player safety is always our priority and if it becomes necessary at any of our tournaments to stop play, shelter on course or return to the clubhouse, we will immediately advise you by text message and by one long blast of air horn. Please consult the forecast prior to play and ensure you are prepared, as much as possible, for fast-changing weather conditions. The weekend forecast at this point looks good but remember things can change quickly so be prepared. ALWAYS bring plenty of water and snacks and stay hydrated PLEASE!
Following play tomorrow we will ask you to confirm scores are accurate and we will compile scores for day one. Please don’t leave without verifying scores with us and you can head home immediately following score verification. We will notify you all by email of Sunday pairings and tee times on Saturday evening.
On Sunday following play we will have a brief awards presentation ceremony. We always try to conduct these presentations as quickly as we can to ensure you are not waiting around too much but we, and our players, do always appreciate your sportsmanship and support by asking that you attend if you possibly can.
