Men's Golf: NCS Golf Championship denies practice time
Submitted By NCS Section
North Coast Section Division 1 Tournament of Champions golf tournament will be played May 14 with some new rules in place for the practice rounds.
It has been decided that there will be no practice rounds available for Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton, where the tournament is set to be played. No player or coach, except for individuals who are members of Castlewood Country Club or teams (i.e. Foothill) that have assigned matches during the regular season at Castlewood Country Club will be permitted to practice, play, walk or be on the tournament site until the NCS/Les Schwab Tires Division 1 Tournament of Champions. This includes guest of members who might be playing in the championship. If a player, coach, or member guest does not obey this rule, the penalty is disqualification.
However, on May 13 between 5-7 p.m., the Castlewood Country Club is allowing tournament participants to walk the course as long as they follow a couple rules: walking the course is optional for all participants. If athletes choose to walk the course, they must be accompanied by their coach, no golf clubs/or balls are allowed during the walk-through, all participants/coaches must remain on the cart paths and must not disturb any members that may be on the course.
