MORONGO GOLF CLUB AT TUKWET CANYON
SATURDAY - SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20 - 21, 2018
All participants must check in at the registration table located near the scoreboard upon arrival on Saturday morning. Players will receive their player gift and receive information about the championship.
STARTING TIMES AND PAIRINGS:
Round one starting times and pairings will be e-mailed to players and posted online at scga.org/boysjunior & scga.org/girlsjunior one week in advance of the championship. Starting times will range from 7:30 a.m. to approximately 9:30 a.m. each day of the championship. Starting times and pairings for round two will be based on round one scores and will be available approximately one hour after the conclusion of round one.
Players are encouraged to arrive at their assigned tee well in advance of their starting time, as the SCGA/SCPGA starter will have information to discuss and distribute to each player in the group. Furthermore, players arriving late will be penalized under Rule 6-3a of the Rules of Golf. For example, the 9:00 a.m. starting time is defined as 9:00:00, and players arriving after that time are considered late. Lead groups should plan to be at their assigned tee 10 minutes in advance of their starting time. Subsequent groups are encouraged to arrive in time to watch the group in front of them tee off.
Players may plan arrangements for practice rounds at their own expense. Practice Rounds can be booked by contacting the Morongo Golf Club Pro Shop at 951-845-0014 up to seven days in advance of the date you wish to play.
