Closest to the Pin
On a voluntary basis, tournament participants, who play from the white and gold tees, will have the option of entering into the Closest to the Pin (CTP) side game. Cost of entry is $1 per par 3 hole or $4 total, payable in cash at the Side Games table. There are two CTP groups, based on handicap, a Low Handicap Group and a High Handicap Group, that varies depending on the mix of players. The two groups may be split at handicaps 15 - 17.
It's the sole responsibility of the participant to enter their name onto the correct Group sheet. Handicaps can be checked with the person manning the Side Games table, a WCSGA officers, or as posted on the website. Callaway players must sign up in the Low Group.
If a participant signs up on the wrong handicap Group sheet, that participant will be disqualified from the CTP side game and forfeit their entrance fee of $4. If that participant should get closest to the pin on any hole, that hole will not be paid out but rather the prize money for that hole will be split between the remaining three par 3 holes. If that participant does not get closest to the pin on any hole then the prize money will be paid, as usual, on all four of the par 3 holes.
Winners are paid out in cash immediately after the tournament
If errors or misunderstanding occur, WCSGA officers will put their best efforts forward to be fair to all players.
