Measuring Devices Policy

All participants are permitted to use sky caddie/laser range finders/ GPS devices to measure distances. These devices may not be used for any other reason other than to measure distance (e.g. slope or elevation change).
These devices will not be provided to participants, if participants use these devices it is as a personal device. Course marshals will be on-hand to monitor the proper use of these devices.

Phone Policy

Phones may be used for measuring devices and GPS apps only. Talking and Texting will not be permitted (unless during a medical emergency). If used for any other reason than as a measuring device, phones will be confiscated. Course marshals will be on-hand to monitor the proper use of phones on the courses.

In consideration of the outdoor nature of the sport of Golf, it is sometimes affected by weather; we appreciate your understanding if unforeseeable circumstances arise (frost delays, course closures based on rain, snow, lightning, etc.). Any delays will be at the discretion of the Golf Pro with the Course and the Golf Coordinators, and play will resume at their discretion. Any other contingencies will be addressed as they arise. It is important to note that due to the time of year it is unlikely that the Golf Provincials would be rescheduled to a later date.
