Prizes

Age group Champions at each event will receive a commemorative award. Gift certificates of approximately $30 per player will be awarded for each of the age groups.

Points Competition

Throughout the series, the FSGA will maintain a “points list” that will determine which competitors win their age division. At the conclusion of the series, each series age division winner will receive a commemorative award.

Flights

After the first round, each age division may be flighted based on the number of competitors and/or the range of scores.

Distance-Measuring Devices

During the 2011-2012 Winter Series of competition, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. However, if, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., gradient, wind-speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional functions are actually used.”

Tee times will vary with each event. Generally, Day One tee times will be late morning to early afternoon starting from the 1st and 10th tees or by shotgun. Day Two will be a shotgun start at approximately 8:30 AM.

Groupings, Starting Times & Player Information

Information about practice rounds, directions lodging etc. will be published on the FSGA website at www.fsga.org on this page before the event. Starting times will be posted on the website two days after the close of entries for each event.

Practice Rounds & Cost

We are attempting to play golf during the busiest time of the golf season in Florida. Accordingly, the golf is costing us much more than during the summer months and that includes practice rounds. Accordingly, practice rounds will cost at least $50 and times will be limited.

Entry Fees

If you maintain your handicap at a Florida club on the GHIN Handicap system, you will pay a reduced entry fee of $20 per person per entry. All Foundation members will pay the Regular (GHIN) member rate regardless of club handicap affiliation.

Four-Ball Event
Regular (GHIN) and Foundation members: $340
Regular (Non-GHIN) members: $380

Fortunately, we are playing at very fine courses at significantly discounted rates and we appreciate these clubs’ cooperation. Playing during “the season” comes at a significantly higher price and we are doing everything possible (including depressed entry fees) to make competition available to you during the season.

Refund Policy

Requests for refunds received prior to the entry closing date will be honored (less $20 per entry administration fee). Requests received after the closing date will be honored (less 50% of the entry fee). No requests will be honored within 48 hours of the first scheduled tee time.
