Tournament Chits

Chits have been emailed to the winners of our first two tournaments. We are using a new process this year, and the chit is the email itself rather than a pdf file attached to the email. Please make sure is in your contacts so the email does not end up in your spam folder. To redeem a chit just print the email and bring it to your Pro Shop, or as always you can donate the chit to the PME/CWGA Scholarship Fund by letting Patti Cheyne, CWGA Treasurer, know. Redemption details are included in the chit email.

Rule of the Month

In taking free 1 club relief (from an immovable obstruction, ground under repair, etc.) you will have to determine your "nearest point of relief ". Your nearest point of relief isn't always your nicest point of relief.... and in fact, it might not be very nice at all! So before you pick your ball up to take relief, examine your options first.
