Hi :

We hope this email finds you well and looking forward to your first GTA AM Tour Tournament. We are VERY excited to soon be executing events for you..!

As the subject line indicates, and in as many ways as possible, we are hoping to find a NEW post-Covid normal. Please find below a list of protocols that we hope to have in place for the start of the 2022 season. Please note however, that all of the protocols/updates below are subject to change and to the protocols in place for each of the Host Clubs. Please, be sure to check the Event Info for each event to see up-to-the-minute information on the topics below.

Covid protocols
The plan for this year will be to return to the following:
  1. Rakes in bunkers. This means The Tour will no longer be using a Local Rule permitting preferred lies in bunkers and will be reverting back to the bunker restrictions as stated in Rule 12.2b of the Rules of Golf
  2. Playoffs for players tied in first place (if available and based on Host Club tee time room).
  3. Skins. Each Flight will have an optional $20 skins game. Cash will be paid out at the end of each Flight/awards ceremony. If a winner is not in attendance, the cash will be held until the players next Tournament.
  4. Post-round awards ceremony. After the completion of each Flight, there will be a brief awards ceremony recognizing the per-Flight winners of the day.
  5. Caddies/spectators will be permitted. However, there are several caveats to this:
  • Caddies/spectators CANNOT slow the pace of play
  • Caddies/spectators must have a good understanding of the Rules and Etiquette of the game of golf
  • Caddies/Spectators will pay for a seat in a cart (if available)
  • Only two carts will be permitted per group. This means that if there are two players with a caddie/spectator, one of the caddies/spectators will be expected to walk.
  • Caddies and spectators will be required to check in with Lisa at registration to sign a waiver.
 
2022 GTA AM Tour Prizing
For the 2022 season, we are pleased to announce the following per-Flight prizing (for the Champ. A, B and C Flights):
  • 1st Place - $250 of TaylorMade product. To be ordered through The Tour. Players will be able to combine prizing amounts.
  • 2nd Place - Two dozen TaylorMade golf balls and one twelve pack of Mill Street beer.
  • 3rd Place - One dozen TaylorMade golf balls and one twelve pack of Mill Street beer.

The per-event winners of the Open Net Stableford Flight will be presented with two dozen TaylorMade golf balls and one twelve pack of Mill Street beer.
NEW TEE TIME REQUEST FEATURE
Historically, Peter Norrie has masterfully and manually managed tee time requests. Patricia Bandurka is now taking over this role. Over the off-season, we have created a new tee time request feature. If you would like to request a tee time (within your Flight and either early, middle or late), please see the image below on how this will work.
When logged onto to the site, you will be instantly directed to your Dashboard. Here you will see that you can Request a Tee Time for your next event. As you can see below, this player's first of event of the season is at Cherry Hill. They can make a request for when they would like to play in their flight.
Alternatively, you can follow the steps below and set up your tee time Requests for the entire/remainder of the season. If you know your schedule in advance, you can select what timeframe, within your Flight, you would like to have your tee time set for.
Players can also set their tee time requests for all their events at once. If you prefer to always have a specific tee time (early middle late), you can make that request for the duration of the season.

Please review the following steps.
  1. Login
  2. Edit My Profile
  3. Click Golfing Details
  4. Select Tee Time Preference
  5. From Drop Down Menu, pick preferred time.
Practice Rounds
Given the increased demand on tee sheets at host private host, practice rounds are unavailable. At public host clubs, players can book as per normal.

We VERY MUCH look forward to hosting you ON TOUR in the near future..!! 😊
In good health,
Mark
