Parents and Spectators - KEEP YOUR DISTANCE!

Jul 15, 2011

We welcome the support of parents and family members who bring the kids out to events. Without their support, obviously it would be difficult for players to get to the tournaments. However, there are good reasons we have a policy that parents and spectators stay 30 yards away from the competitors AT ALL TIMES. Assistance in searching for lost golf balls is acceptable, but we ask that there be no conversations with any of the competitors during the rounds. In Carstairs this week, parental interference led to the disqualification of a player, when a perhaps well meaning, but obviously ill-formed parent told a player ( not his son but one of the other players in the group) that it was acceptable for him to drop a ball in play rather than return to the tee and put another ball in play after the players were unable to find the competitor's golf ball. I know that many of these youngsters are not yet fully knowledgeable about the Rules of Golf, but this is supposed to be a learning experience for them. It is the responsibility of all players in any tournament at any level to know the Rules. If they make a mistake on their own during a round, and end up suffering the consequences, so be it. They will learn from that and grow. But having parents and spectators interfering, no matter how good their intentions, is unacceptable. So, when we come up to you at events and ask you to stay back and let the kids play without distractions or interference, this is why.

Frequenty Asked Questions (FAQ)

Jul 14, 2011

With Tour events right now in full swing for the summer, I am still getting emails and phone calls from kids and parents about the Tour: 'how do I sign up?', 'what does it cost to join the Tour?' , 'what age do you have to be?'...etc etc. See the FAQ icon on the Home Page of the Tour website? Look in the upper right hand corner of the Tour home page. Please just click on the FAQ section and read the contents. It's ALL in there,,,thanks,,,Dunc.

Srixon Order Of Merit Updated Through Lacombe

Jul 14, 2011

The 2011 Srixon Order of Merit standings have been updated up to and including yesterday's tournament in Lacombe. The early trend this year in most of the age groups seems to be one of balance, as for example, there have been seven different winners of the age group for boys born in 1992-94 through seven events. Every age group is tightly bunched in the race for both bragging rights and very nice bags from Srixon/ Cleveland Golf for the season-long champions. There are several events coming up in the next two weeks at which to earn ranking points, so pick out some events on the schedule, and come out to compete!

Career Bests, A Hole in One, and a dry golf course!

Jul 13, 2011

We had it all today in Lacombe! Two days after torrential rains had left their first fairway a lake, the grounds crew at the Lacombe GCC had worked tirelessly to get their golf course back into terrific shape! Jeremy Rietze of Lacombe fired a career low 1-over par 72 for his first Tour win, while his clubmate Dylan Wiedner also toured the Lacombe layout in HIS career low of 76, which was highlighted by the 15th Ace in Tour history. On the Junior Girls side, Katie Griffiths of Red Deer bagged her second win in two days. Full results are now on the website under the Lacombe link in "Latest Results".
