PLEASE READ - With Easter being on Master's Sunday, that kind of kills the traditional Pre-Trip weekend and our normal itinerary. Also, since there weren't any Saturday flights offered by the discount carriers in 2019, I've adjusted our 2020 itinerary accordingly to start on a Friday (for the long trip guys) and finish on a Thursday, allowing everyone to travel home on Friday and have the entire weekend to recover for work on Monday.
I've also moved the trip into May, hopefully for hotter weather, as requested by some participants. Going later will also give players time to golf and prepare for the tournament before we go down. Because of the expected hotter days, I'm also going to move our daily starting times to the end of the morning session, probably around 9am. I've also added 2 new courses to the line-up. Some guys have complained about playing the same courses every year. I'm just trying to make everyone happy. Please see below.

Any leftover CPs will be awarded via a raffle. You may only win 8 CPs. Any CP won after you've won the max will go to the raffle. Once 8 CPs are confirmed won, the player should not sign for or measure their shots. $240 in winnings is enough cash for your $50 investment. NEW 2019 - Players playing from the GOLD tees will also play the GOLD tees on Par 3s.
$460 CHIP-IN GAME - Every Chip-In during individual play will be worth one share of the purse. There is also an opportunity to win a BONUS share if you make par or better on at least 2 of the 4 #1 hcp holes played during the week. Any shot that is holed from off of the green is considered a Chip-In. It doesn't matter what club you use. If you are not on the putting surface, it is a Chip-In. Also, PAR is not needed.
$880 SKINS GAME (Birdie or Better to Qualify) - TWO DIVISIONS - (all individual golf Tuesday thru Friday) - $10 per person per day will go towards this purse. If you are in the top 14 of the field, your money will be allocated to the A Flight game. If you are in the bottom 10 of the field, your money will be allocated to the B Flight game. However, if you are placed in the B Flight game, you may choose to be put in the A Flight game or you may pay $10 per day to be included in the A Flight game in addition to the B Flight game. Also, if you are placed in the A Flight game but your average is 90 or higher, you may pay to play in the B Flight game.
Every SKIN will be worth one share of the day's purse. Remember, this is a SKINS game, BIRDIES on the same hole WILL cancel each other. $100 is the maximum amount of a skin, except on the final day, they can be worth $200. Any leftover money will carry to the next day. Any leftover money on the final day will go to the raffle.
$300 is the maximum that you can win in a SKINS game. The A Flight game is separate from the B Flight game. Any money won over $300 in one game will be put into the raffle and you will be removed from the game. You will not be refunded for the remaining days. The tournament committee feels that $300 in winnings is enough cash for your $40 investment for that game.
$1,000 in BONUS PAYOUTS - $560 to the SKINS Game pots ($140/day into A), $440 to the Chip-In & Money Hole pot
