CAI-MN 2019 GOLF TOURNAMENT RULES:
1. Mulligans - A mulligan is a second chance to swing, without adding an extra stroke to the golfer’s scorecard. Players purchase mulligans before the event. Each golfer gets one mulligan. Four mulligans per team must be used only one time for each golfer. One person cannot take all 4 mulligans.
2.. Lob a Grenade – Each player can pick up their ball and throw it instead of using their golf club – one time during the round. Four golfer grenade tosses. One person cannot take all four grenades.
3. String It Out - In “String It Out” the team is issued a licorice rope prior to the round's start. The licorice can be used at any time during the round by a player who wants to improve his/her lie. Example: Your ball is sitting down in heavy rough, but if you could move it just one foot, you'd have a great lie. Okay, take out your licorice rope, string it out in the direction you want to move the ball. If the licorice rope reaches the point where you'd like to place your ball, you can move the ball. Are you really close to the hole and can’t putt? You may use your licorice rope to “hole out”. The catch is that each time you use your licorice rope, you must cut off the amount of rope corresponding to the distance your ball was moved. Move your ball six inches to get out of a bunker, cut six inches off your licorice rope (a ball can be moved out of any hazard other than a water hazard). The licorice rope can be used at any time, but, obviously, must be used judiciously or it runs out pretty quickly.
Preferred Method: Pre-purchase a bundle “package” for your foursome for $80 which would include:
- 4 mulligans (one per golfer)
- 4 “grenades” (one per golfer)
- 1 Licorice Rope (use it until it’s gone) /li>
Alternative Method of Purchase (Day of Event Only): The day of the tournament, a foursome can purchase the package for $100 or individuals can purchase items separately at the following costs:
- Mulligans - $20/each, no limit (max 1 use per golfer per hole)
- Grenades - $10/each, no limit (max 1 use per golfer per hole)
- Licorice Rope - $20/each, limit 4 per foursome.
