ALTERATION OF CARD  -  No alteration may be made on a scorecard after the competitor has returned it to the committee.

SLOPE SYSTEM  - All handicaps are based on this system.

UNDUE DELAY (SLOW-PLAY) – Players must play without undue delay and in accordance with the following pace of play guidelines:  A group will be considered out of position if it a) reaches the tee of a Par 3 hole and the group in front has cleared the next tee; b) reaches the tee of a Par 4 and the putting green is clear; c) reaches the teeing ground of a par 5 hole when the group in front is within 100 yards of the putting green.  If any of these occur, a group must play efficiently and return to its position on the course.  Player(s) who fail to return to its position must pick up her ball at maximum strokes and take a loss of hole and/or loss of game if applicable.  Hole should be marked with an 'X' before the number of strokes (example: x9) on the scorecards to denote pick-up.  This "pick-up" rule is applicable to all events except the Club Championship and the President's Cup, in which case the penalty for slow play is 2 strokes penalty for the 4-some.
