The rules committee has met and agreed upon a rules change that will help all members participating in official FilAm Golf Tour events experience the same slope and course rating during tournament play. This change also takes into account a few other factors as well. At the request of many tournament directors at the courses we compete on, this change is intended to improve the Pace of Play in addition to addressing an issue where our club currently has more seniors in the Senior Division than the other divisions. Beginning with the tournament on April 8th at Santa Anita Golf Course and in effect until further notice, the rules changes are as follows:
1. All players will compete from the WHITE TEES.
2. There will be 3 divisions, separated by Class A , Class B and Class C.
3. Player position within each class will also be dependent upon the number of players confirmed to play in a given tournament.
4. All points won to-date for the current season will carry over.
In addition to the above started benefits, these changes also support competitive pairings.
