CONDITIONS: The Puget Sound Tournament Committee reserves the right to alter the conditions and schedules herein. The Committee reserves the right to reject the entry of any applicant, at any time, for any reason. Any decision by the Committee, in any matter, shall be final. Players will be presented with the supplemental rules “Hard Copy” prior to teeing off.

PACE OF PLAY: Please bear in mind that this year is unique for many reasons and we will all rely on one another to be responsible for maintaining an appropriate pace of play. As such, we will be enforcing a strict pace of play policy during the event and abiding by updated rules on this topic from the USGA:

Rule 5.6 encourages prompt pace of play by recommending that:

  • Players should recognize that their pace of play affects others and they should play promptly throughout the round (such as by preparing in advance for each stroke and moving promptly between strokes and in going to the next tee),
  • A player should make a stroke in no more than 40 seconds (and usually in less time) after the player is able to play without interference or distraction, and
  • Committees should adopt a Pace of Play Policy (rather than only say they may do so).

In addition, Rule 6.4 expressly allows playing out of turn in match play by agreement, and for stroke play, affirmatively allows and encourages players to play out of turn in a safe and responsible way to save time or for convenience (also known as “ready golf”).

PRACTICE ROUNDS: A practice round rate is available at our local Pierce County Resident rate of $130 plus taxes at Chambers Bay and the Senior/Military/1st Responder rate of $32 at Lake Spanaway. Practice rounds are only available from Monday, October 16th through Friday, October 20th. The practice round rate is only available to registered participants. Tee times are subject to availability (there are no specially reserved times for Practice Rounds). Tee times can be made online on the respective golf courses’ websites (Chambers Bay | Lake Spanaway [7-day booking window]).

SPECTATORS: Each player is allowed 1 spectator to follow along. Spectators must maintain proper golf etiquette and awareness of their position in relation to the competitors of the Championship.
