COVID Tournament Protocols Modified
Continuing to review on a timely manner, the Tournament Committee has recently made a few modifications to the Tournament Protocols in place regarding COVID-19 in the last few days.

It is important to stress that
Players should still abide by and be cognizant of the social distancing rules in place at all times while on site and participating in events.

The following were restrictions and safety protocols in place but effectively immediately have been modified.
  • Caddies/Spectators - Players are NOW Permitted to bring a caddie/spectator to a tournament.
  • Scoring/Scorecard Procedure - Players are now permitted to exchange in "regular" scoring procedures that will allow the exchange of scorecards for verification by the player/scorer and allow for signatures for both player/scorer on the card.

Section staff will still have hand sanitizing stations at the first tee and scoring areas and encourage all players to utilize these.

Revised COVID-Tournament Protocols


Please be advised the following letter was released this week by the New York State Club Association, Inc.
