Entries are subject to rejection at any time (including during the Championship) by the Tournament Director. The reason for rejection may include unbecoming conduct.
ENTRY FEE: The entry fee for this tournament is $275.00 (two hundred seven-five dollars). This fee includes green fees for all players during the weekend qualifying and for those that make the Monday cut. This does not include a practice round. It is highly advised that you mail your entry at least 15 working days prior to the closing date, as all late entries are considered as a request to be put on waiting list. The closing date to enter this tournament is May 15, 2018. Historically, the event is filled two weeks prior to the closing date. The entry fee does not include golf cart or caddy.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Any accepted entry may be cancelled providing actual notice is given to the Tournament Director, John Rochelle, 3101 Marlynn Street, Carmichael, California 95608 prior to May 15, 2018. There will be a $25.00 administrative fee assessed.

In the event of a tie for the championship after 54 holes, a three-hole playoff on holes #9, #10, and #18 will be played to determine the winner. If a tie still exists after the three-hole playoff, the players will have a sudden-death playoff on the same holes until a winner is determined.
