The tournament field will consist of five divisions – Men (49 and under), Senior Men (50-59), Mid-Senior Men (60-69), Super Senior Men (70 and above), and Women. Men may choose to play in their division or the age groups below them. The divisions are further divided into flights of players with similar handicap indexes. Players compete within their flights in computer-assigned threesomes for the four days of regulation play. The number, size and handicap of each flight will depend on the number of entrants. Flights will be made up of approximately 48 people. There were 64 flights in 2009: 14 Men, 18 Senior Men, 20 Mid Senior Men, 6 Super Senior Men, and 6 Women.
Over 50 Grand Strand golf courses will host the tournament. Each flight will be assigned to a different course for each day’s play. There will be an 8:30 a.m. or 9:30 a.m. shotgun start each day unless otherwise noted. Final course assignments will be distributed at tournament registration. Please arrive approximately 45 minutes prior to play; any player missing the shotgun start will be disqualified.
Players are required to ride in a cart that will be assigned to them prior to each tournament round. No player will be allowed to use a caddie. Spectator allowance is determined by each host golf course. Spectators must remain on or near the cart path and are prohibited from interfering with play, giving advice or caddying.
