PRACTICE ROUND:  2:00 pm shotgun start on Friday, September 25.  Please send all group requests (groups of 4) to Devin Lowe, Assistant General Manager at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes, at dlowe@troon.com.  

GOLF CARTS:  As a player enhancement, all players will be provided OPTIONAL golf carts for all four rounds of the tournament.  They will be double-rider carts.  You don't have to use the cart.  It is the player's responsibility to the options available if they don't want to double-ride (trading off, walking but having the clubs in the cart, etc).  There will be a few additional carts that players may rent (at an additional cost) if they prefer a single-rider cart.  The availability is first-come, first-serve, and is not guaranteed.  NO ONE is allowed to ride on the back of a cart.  

SPECTATORS:  Spectators are currently able to be allowed at The Tucker Amateur but we will update you any changes as we get closer.  Spectator carts are not available.

CADDIES:  Caddies are allowed but may not ride on the back of any cart.  

COVID RULES:  Social distancing will be key especially at the beginning and the end of the shotguns.  We appreciate your help on that.  Flagsticks will be required to remain in the holes and there will not be any bunker rakes on the course.  A addition to the Notice to Competitors will address this.  

ENTRY FEE:  $375 which includes all golf for four rounds, practice balls, lunch on 36 hole day, and awards.
