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.
We've started updating a new web page titled "College Info & Alumni" where our goal is multi-faceted We want to:
1. Create a go-to resource for our juniors and families regarding Collegiate Golf 2. Promote our NENY PGA Junior Members (Alumni) juniors who have advanced to compete in collegiate golf 3. Promote our own NENY PGA Section members who coach at a collegiate level
Feel free to check out the website and let us know what you think so far.
