Attention: This is now a one day event.
B-Tier Amatuer Only Tournament
Two 24+ hole rounds at Westpark. Westpark is one of the most popular courses in the Joliet area. Hole 2 is an easy shot down from the top of the ridge to the basket below, while hole 11, The Green Mile, is a long shot with a fairway that narrows significantly from the halfway point to the pin. The course plays thru mature oaks. Tee pads are natural.
This event will be Pre-Registration ONLY. There will be no day of registration at the course. (This event will fill during pre-reg anyway.) Pre-Registration will close Thursday, June 14th at 7pm.
There will be no "check-in." Hole assignments will be posted on the Aces and Chains website by 5pm Friday. Or check the leaderboard when you get to the course. First player on the card is responsible for picking up the scorecard.
No players meeting. OB is detailed below, and will also be on your scorecards. Any questions prior to the start of play, please see the TD, Patrick Johnson. The two minute warning (two blasts) will sound at 9am, and play will begin on a single horn blast at 9:02am. Players are responsible for getting to their tees on time for the start of play. Late players will be penalized according to the rules.
Water: Surrounded by water in the creek that runs by holes 1,2,3,5,11,15,16. If you are in the creek surrounded by water (regardless of what hole you are throwing), you are OB.
Pavement: Any pavement on, or around the course is OB. If the pavement has a cement curb and gutter, the cement curb and gutter are considered IN BOUNDS. This provides an easy to determine and definitive line for OB. This includes all paved paths (like hole 10) or unused parking lots (like hole 4).
Out of the park: If you are out of the park, you are OB. Over the fence on 2,4,6,& 8 is OB. Over the road on 13,16,17,18,19,21,22, & 24 is OB.
Hole 11: Over the creek to the left is OB.
Hole 21& 22: It is possible on both of these holes to be over the street and still in the park. However, to prevent any confusion, over the street on these two holes is STILL OB.
Players pack will be available at the Aces and Chains Pro Shop on the Friday before the tournament, or anytime thereafter.
This is a new format we are going to test at Chain Reaction. It should make for a more pleasant experience without the required check in (and long lines.)
TD Headquarters will be at the pavillion above hole 8. The pavillion is off Wheeler Ave. The map below is fully functional.
