The following rules apply for all competitors. The responsibility for abiding by these rules falls on the individual team members. Any financial ramifications for failing to comply by these rules are also the responsibility of the participants, and may not be passed on to the tournament coordinators, sponsors, or event vendors.
Acceptance of Entry
• Professionals will be notified as to team acceptance in the field following entry.
• Acceptance is only provisional until final entry payments have been received for all teammates.
• Teams may be placed on a waitlist. This depends on the amount of entry receipts. The full field is limited to 60 teams. If your team is placed on a waitlist, you will be notified as to your position on this list. At such time, the team may choose to remain on the list or receive an immediate refund, having your team removed. The golf professional must call to accept or deny the waitlist status.

• This includes full entry payments for each of the three amateur participants.
• Teams failing to pay in full by July 15, 2018 may be moved from 'provisionally confirmed' to waitlisted.
• Waitlisted team captains (golf professionals) will be notified as to their status immediately following this date.
• Cancellations will be accepted with full refund up until this date.
• Tournament team entries are non-refundable after this date unless the team is replaced by a waitlisted team.
August 15, 2018 • Payment and registration for non-golfing guests are due prior to this date.
Cancellations and Responsibilities
Each team is made up of one staff professional and three amateur partners. It is the responsibility of the professional to:
• Field a team.
• Provide information on each team member.
• Ensure each participant pays his/her entry fees as noted.
• Ensure each participant conducts him/herself in a professional manner at all times, and abides by the rules of golf.
• Provide verifiable handicap information, and ensure all playing partners have handicap indexes which reflect their ability. This includes noting that amateur playing partners turn in all of their adjusted scores according to the rules of their governing golf association.
• The professional must field a team with the understanding that his/her team will be obligated to complete each round without negatively affecting the pace of play. A team unable to complete each round in under 4.5 hours is advised not to enter, as failure to maintain an acceptable pace of play will not be tolerated.
• The adidas Golf Invitational is a team event. Individual cancellations are not accepted. The team consists of four players. If an individual cancels, this individual must be replaced by the team. There is NO REFUND for an individual cancellation. If the team is unable to replace a player, the team may play with three players or an effort will be made to fill the spot with a 'local' player. If this happens, it is understood and agreed that there will be NO REFUND, and this is the responsibility of the team to sort out any financial ramifications.
• Following July 15, 2018 – a team may cancel and receive a full refund if the team is replaced by a waitlist team. If the team cancels and is unable to be replaced, the following refund policy applies:
– Prior to July 15, 2018 – Full refund for the team.
– Between July 15 and August 15, 2018 – 50% refund applies for the team.
– After August 15, 2018 – No refunds will be issued to the team.
Cancellation Insurance is Highly Recommended
Each team entry is only accepted with the cancellation policy understood by the participants. For cancellation insurance you may go to any insurance company or use one that has served our participants in the past: 877-243-4135 or www.csatravelprotection.com.
