All Gross Division winners are invited to play Friday’s Championship Round as a courtesy. Call it a victory lap!

All players in a gross division must be a 10 handicap or better from an approved handicap service. If you do not maintain a handicap this can be verified by past tournament performance or outside competition play.

The Tournament committee reserves the right to decline participation in a gross division based on past performance history.

Gross Divisions are subject to participation. If an inadequate number of players are registered to participate all players will be assigned to their respective net or most similar gross division.
