Senior Golfers

Age 60 and over male players, with a 12-month low index of 6.0 or higher, shall have the option of moving up from the blue tees to the white tees. If the player chooses this option, the player’s handicap will be reduced by 1.

Notes:
1) The player must declare which tee he wishes to play from prior to teeing off on round #1 (inform the starter on #1 tee).  He will continue to play from the same tee color throughout the event, and may not change this designation during the competition.
2) If the player is already playing from the white tees, this option does not exist, and he will remain playing from the white tees with the tournament handicap as noted.
