Carts, Pull Carts, Caddies and Distance Measuring Devices
Electric carts and caddies are prohibited in all age divisions for all tournament rounds. Pull carts are allowed in all age divisions for all rounds.  Participants must provide their own equipment. 

Distance measuring devices are allowed. In this competition a player may obtain distance information by use of a distance-measuring device. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g. elevation changes, wind speed, etc.) the player is in breach of Rule 14-3.

Completion of Play
Provided there are no weather or other delays, the final round is scheduled to conclude by dark. Please plan your departures accordingly and allow for ample time for airport transfers. If the final round cannot be completed by dark due to weather delays or unforeseen circumstances, the tournament will revert back to the last 18 holes completed by the entire field. If inclement weather suspends play on the final day of the tournament and it is determined that all players in an age division cannot complete 18 holes by dark but the entire field in an age division can complete a common 9 holes, then the tournament will revert to a 27-hole event. If a common 9 holes cannot be completed on the final day then the tournament will revert back to the last stipulated round completed by the entire field in an age division.
