Good after everyone.
We would like to thank you for your player entry for our Saturday November 6th Highlander Junior Tour competition at Mission Inn Resort. We are delighted to announce tee times, pairings, playing tee boxes and yardages.
First tee time tomorrow will be 12.00 pm. Groups will depart at 8 minute intervals. We ask that all players make their way to the tee at least 10 minutes before play for player introductions and a short local rules briefing.
This is an 18-hole stroke play event ranked by GJGR. Within the field of players we will also have a number who are returning to play an additional 18 holes on Sunday 7th November on El Campeon as part of our Mission Inn 36-hole challenge. Please note that Tee Times and pairings etc. for all of our Sunday players will be communicated to you by email later today.
On arrival tomorrow at Mission Inn please check in with Fiona at our HJT Registration Tent which is situated alongside the cart rental station. Registration will open at 10.00 am. Fiona will confirm your tee time and on course contact info and then direct you to your rental cart. A cart has been included in the entry cost of the event for each player. Please do NOT remove your cart until advised to do so following check in.
Additional carts are available for spectators if required at a cost of $35 plus tax. Please enquire at the ProShop on arrival if you need one. Please note that players carts take priority and spectators will be issued with carts only once players have received theirs.
It is essential that we have a contact number for every player out on the course for safety reasons and in the event we need to message you in case of emergency or to advise of any incoming weather issues that may force you to take temporary shelter. The weather right now can be a little unpredictable so please be prepared for it. Bringing wet weather gear/umbrellas is always a good idea just in case!
We will score tomorrows event using our dedicated HJT golf online scoring app. If you are attending your first HJT event please download the app by searching for HJT golf and register using your player name if using for the first time. You will be able to then search for the event and you will see that all players are already loaded in tee time format. The app is very easy to use and if you do need any assistance please speak with a member of HJT staff in advance of play tomorrow.
The app is a safe way to score competitions without the need for handling and swapping paper scorecards between players. It may already be familiar to many of you as the same app, with different branding, created by iWanamaker is what some of you already use for FHSAA High School competitions. We do suggest that you may still wish to keep/complete a card for your own use/records but for safety and under social distancing rules we ask that you keep it for your own use and do not swap it with any other player. The paper card is useful to do a double check of scores if any discrepancies are found in the app following play but ONLY the scores you enter into the app and verified by player and scorer prior to final submission will be accepted.
Important note regarding app reporting/scoring:
Your score is YOUR responsibility. If another member of the group you are playing with agrees to submit everyone’s scores into the app it is still YOUR responsibility to check these scores are input correctly with him/her BEFORE they are finally submitted. Often the fastest way to check is if you have your own copy kept on a paper scorecard as a back-up.
Important note for players with us for this event who have achieved FHSAA State Championship Qualification for the 2021 Championship beginning next week at Mission Inn:
First of all we would like to congratulate you on achieving this awesome distinction! Very Well Done! We hope that by playing with us this weekend it helps give you a better understanding and knowledge of the course you will compete on during the FHSAA State Championship.
Please note that we set player yardages/tee boxes for our own tournaments based on player age and the suggested yardage guidelines follow the general guidance of the USGA and R&A. We cannot guarantee these yardages will exactly match those set by the FHSAA committee for their event however we do provide ALL players regardless of age the option of playing a longer yardage if they prefer to do so. Please make us aware of this request prior to beginning play and we will amend the tee box shown against your name within our app.
All players will be grouped into player flights. An HJT winner’s medal will be presented to the lowest scoring player in each flight. If necessary extra hole play-offs will be used to decide a winner and the number of holes will be advised prior to the play-off commencing. If after the agreed number has been reached if players are still tied the winning medalist will be decided by a chip-off at an agreed green side area.
As each flight group finishes we will have a brief medal presentation by the main scoreboard area. Please show good golf etiquette and support the medal winners at the presentation of the flight you are competing in if you are able to stay and do so. We always plan on doing these awards outdoor (weather permitting) by the Mission Inn Scoreboard to allow for good social distancing.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you all to this very special Highlander Junior Tour event tomorrow and, if playing both days, Sunday too!
