Optional Side Game Rules
(Effective June 1, 2023)

Optional Closest-to-Pin (CTP) and Hole-in-One (HIO) contests are available at all PSMGA tournaments.  These rules were reviewed and approved by the Executive Board on June 1, 2023, but may be amended as necessary as conditions warrant. 

All participants must be a PSMGA member with current year dues paid.

CTP on 4 unmodified Par 3's (ball must remain on the green)

All funds collected will make up the CTP payout and will be distributed at the end of the round.

1. ENTRY FEE:  $4.00, $1.00 for each Par 3. Sign up in the Pecan Hollow Grille. 
2. WINNERS: Payouts
will be in cash after the tournament. Winnings not picked up after two weeks will be deposited into members' accounts.
17.9 Handicap Index or less and all Callaway. FLIGHT #2: 18.0 Handicap index or more. 
4. CANCELLATION: If a tournament, once started, is cancelled at any time due to inclement weather, etc., there will be no CTP payouts.
5. REFUNDS: CTP entry fees will be refunded for 30 minutes only, immediately after the tournament is cancelled. Members who do not remain to pick up refunds, will be transferred onto the CTP entry list for the next scheduled tournament and no further refunds will be made. 

NOTICE: Members are responsible for entering the correct flight. Failure to do so will result in non-payment. Entering the member’s name on the wrong proximity marker will nullify the member from that hole. The playing partners should help ensure names are entered onto the correct proximity markers. If a proximity marker is moved for putting or chipping, mark that spot and then ensure the marker is replaced at the original spot.  


1. ENTRY FEE: $1.00 for all PSMGA players in each tournament, SIGNUP IS REQUIRED.
2. QUALIFICATIONS: HIOs may be made on any original hole on the course, including short par 4 holes. However, par 4's shortened to a par 3 or temporary greens on any hole, due to flooding, maintenance, etc. cannot be counted as an HIO.
3. WITNESSES: Every HIO must be witnessed in order to receive the payout.
4. CANCELLATION: An HIO is valid once made. It remains an HIO even if the tournament is subsequently canceled at any time due to inclement weather, etc.
5. WINNERS: The payout for one HIO will be 50% of the fund on that day, not to exceed
$500.  The payout for multiple HIO’s, on the same day, will be 50% of the amount in the fund on the day of the tournament, and will be equally shared, not to exceed $500 per person. HIO payouts will be awarded by check not later than the next tournament.
6. REFUNDS: If a tournament, once started, is cancelled due to inclement weather, etc., the HIO entry fee is not refunded, but added to the HIO fund. (Not applicable while entry is free)
