Year Results

For all tournaments, the Tournament Chair must receive a cancellation notice from the entrant not less than 72 hours prior to the tournament date. Lack of said notification will result in forfeiture of the entry fee. Once confirmed reservations have been made, cancellations shall first be filled by available alternates. If none are available, the cancelling member is responsible for filling their slot or the entry fee shall be forfeited.
For all refunds, the entrant will be refunded minus all related MemberPlanet fees charged to the club for processing the payments.

Times shall be posted on the website no later than 6:00 PM on the Wednesday prior to home Tournaments, or three days before away Tournaments. The Pro Shop Staff will also be provided with a list of tee times for the convenience of players who call in for their times.
Nevertheless, it is the sole responsibility of the player to ensure the accuracy of times given over the telephone. The Staff is totally absolved of responsibility for a player missing their tee-time. The player must also be aware of changes in starting times due to "acts of nature" or other delays. The Staff can only estimate re-start times and or procedure changes due to these causes. Again, sole responsibility rests with the Player to be on the tee, on time. (Rule 5.3a)

Handicaps for all tournaments are based on the Player's current index at the time the Tournament Chair is setting up the pairings. Standard USGA adjustments to course handicaps for four-ball competitions and four-player competitions will be applied. An NCGA Index is reguired for all Major Tournaments. New members, lacking an index, may enter non-major tournaments by submitting at least three signed score cards in time for the Handicap Chair to calculate a handicap.

If extraordinary ground conditions require Local Rules, or if any other Special Rules are applicable, beyond those printed on the Golf Course score card, they will be provided on Tournament Information Sheets available at check-in or will be announced from the desk. Penalties for disregard of these Rules may include disqualification.

At each NCGA qualifier, a list of alternates (individuals or teams) will be determined by the Tournament Chair using the club's established non-playoff tie breaking policy. When an individual in the ILN or a member of a team in any of the NCGA team events cannot participate in the next stage of qualifying regardless of the reason, the Tournament Chair must be notified as soon as possible. The qualifying spot will be offered to the highest ranking replacement team or individual. No team should participate in the NCGA portion of the qualifying event if they know at the time that they will not be able to go on and play throughout the competition.

At all tournaments one or more Committee members, or their designates, will be assigned to resolve claims and disputes. These decisions shall be final (Rule 20).

All scores in PAGC tournaments will be posted by the Committee. It is expected that all other rounds played by PAGC members will be posted promptly and accurately, adjusting the scores as described under ‘Equitable Stroke Control’ on the club website.

At home or away tournaments the Committee, in consultation with the golf course marshall, is empowered to penalize groups, or individuals for slow play (Undue Delay, Rule 5.6). Refer to the club's pace-of-play policy on the website.

A hole-in-one scored by a Palo Alto Golf Club member and witnessed by one other PAGC member, will receive $100.00 in credit in the Palo Alto Pro Shop.

This document will be reviewed at least once a year by the Committee for appropriate additions and amendments. It will require the approval of at least four of the six Committee members to change this document.

Amendments to this document may also be implemented based on affirmative vote by no less than six members of the Board of Directors.
