Planning Your Event
Planning is crucial, both on your end and on ours. In order to help everyone understand what will be happening, here are some areas to consider when planning your event.
Method of Start
All players will be gathered 15 minutes before the specified starting time to allow for announcements regarding the tournament. They will then be led out to their hole assignments by our staff for shotgun starts.
- Tee Times
- Full Field Shotgun – At least 100 players are needed to give your tournament the entire course
- Modified Shotgun – For afternoon starts, the tournament groups will start on #1 and go forward on the front nine
- Reverse Shotgun – For morning starts, the tournaments groups will start on #1 and go backwards on the back nine
Note for Shotgun starts: The golf course is able to have two groups on a hole at a time; therefore two groups will start on most holes during a shotgun start.
FormatsChoosing the correct format is very important to having a successful tournament. Consider the type of players that will come to your tournament, along with the competitive nature of the event. Here are some popular formats that are commonly used.
- Scramble (2 or 4 person) –All players will hit a tee shot. The team will select the best one. All players will then play from that selected spot. You may place the ball up to one club-length from the selected spot, no closer to the hole and must maintain the lie of the ball(for example, if it is in the rough all balls must be played from the rough). On the putting green, you may place the ball six inches from the selected ball, no closer to the hole. Continue in this manner until the team holes out.
- Modified Scramble (2 or 4 person) – All players will hit a tee shot. The team will select the best one. All players will then play their own ball out from this location. Record the best score. Handicaps are recommended to make this format a fair competition.
- Best Ball (2 or 4 person) – All players play the hole independently; upon completion the best score is recorded. Handicaps are recommended to make this format a fair competition.
- Individual Stroke Play
Colorado National Golf Club requires that the number of players be confirmed at least one week out. This confirmed number will be the minimum amount that the tournament will be charged for. An accurate count is necessary for the staff to make this a successful event, so please be aware of this in the planning of your event.
Proper golf attire is required at all times. Gentleman may wear slacks or proper golf shorts and collared shirts are always required. We do allow denim during the winter months of November through February. Ladies must wear golf skirts, golf shorts, capris or pants and a proper golf shirt. No denim or gym wear of any kind.
All players are required to adhere to the dress code; any player not in dress code will be required to change before participating. If a player refuses to adhere to dress code and therefore doesn’t participate in the event, they will still be used in the player count. Volunteers are not required to adhere to the dress code.
Pace of Play
Make sure all players are aware of the 4.5-hour pace for an 18 hole round at Colorado National Golf Club. All players must adhere to this standard. The course marshals have the authority to make a slow group speed up, even if that means skipping a hole. Colorado National Golf Club thanks you in advance for your cooperation in trying to make this an enjoyable day for everyone on the golf course.
Deposit and Payment of Fees
A 20% deposit is required to secure the date. The remaining payment of all fees and associated charges must be made no later than the day of the tournament.
