2016 PEIGA Seniors Men’s GOLF TOUR

 

Welcome to the 2016 PEIGA Senior Men’s Golf Tour. We hope that everyone enjoys a great year of competitive golf. In the interest of simplifying your participation in the tour a number of changes are being introduced this year.

Pre- Registration

All players are being asked to pre-register for the 2016 PEIGA Senior Men’s Tour by completing the attached registration form and forwarding it to the P.E.I. Golf Association by Friday , May 13th . This will allow us to better plan and to have up to date contact information for all players .

Prize Pool

Rather than collecting for prizes each week we are requesting that you forward $35 with your registration form. This will cover prizes for the spring leg of the tour. A further $35 will be collected at the first tournament in September to cover prizes for the fall leg.

Green Fees

We have negotiated favorable rates from all of the courses on the schedule . This year you will pay your green fee directly to the course on the day of the tournament. Golf cars are optional and your responsibility to book.

Tournament Draws

Merlin Affleck will be preparing tournament draws . If you plan to play in a tournament you must confirm to him by 5:00 pm the prior Monday. The draw will be posted on the Association’s website. Merlin can be reached at Stanhope Golf Course (902-672-2842) or by email merlin@stanhopegolf.ca

Statistics

As before season long statistics will be kept and posted periodically on the website. Please make sure that you obtain your 2016 Golf Canada/PEIGA ( Gold) membership card .These new enhanced benefit cards can be purchased at your local course or on the Golf Canada website . This card is the only way to determine an official handicap.

Pace of Play

This year every effort will be made to increase the speed of play and you must stay in position relative to the group ahead of you . Host courses are insisting that our tournaments not slow down play. This is a serious concern and repeat offenders will be declined entry into tournaments.

Schedule

At this point only the spring leg of the tour has been finalized . The fall schedule will be completed this summer and posted on the website. The current schedule is as follows ( HST Included )

May  23  Countryview    $32.00
