Pace of Play, Housekeeping, and Cheating

Notes on the July 13th ASGA Board meeting

   President Frank Segura greeted board members at the July ASGA Board meeting with the offer of a drink....... a drink of water, that is. Segura apparently wanted a lot of conversation and was prepared to keep everyone refreshed and verbally active by providing bottles of water for the board. And he got what he wanted as board members had a lot to say about the upcoming BBQ, the 2017 slate of officials for the new board, and next year's tournament schedule.

Modified Pinehurst Event Format

Tournament Chairman Bob Remey has announced that the format for remaining events on the 2016 schedule with the "Ryder Cup" or Alternate Tee Shot/Alternate Shot format have been changed. (The entire schedule may be reviewed online at the schedule page).

The July 19 event is affected by the changes and is now a Modified Pinehurst (2M Team) event.  In this format each player hits a tee shot on each hole. The desired tee shot is selected and the second shot is hit by the player whose tee shot was not selected.  Alternate shot is then played until the ball is holed.

Contact the Tournament Chairman with questions regarding the schedule.
