Welcome to the Annual Banderas Bay Red Cross Golf Tournament. We are pleased to invite 120 players (30 teams of 4 players) to participate in this prestigious tournament, which will be held at the Flamingos Golf & Country Club, Nayarit, on March 3, 2012.

Participants will include all amateur golfers, men and women, who are welcome to participate in this fun tournament to raise funds for the Banderas Bay Red Cross.

The game format for the tournament will be played in the "Scramble" or "A GO-GO" 4-ball format. All players hit their tee shot and choose the most advantageous to the team. The second shot for the four players will be done from the site chosen. This same process will continue until they get one ball in the hole and record the result on the team's scorecard.

The tournament will begin by gunshot at 9:00 am. Please be at your output table with your team at 8:45 am.

The tournament will be played by the rules of the USGA, FMG, and local rules indicated on the scorecard. The Rules Committee will be responsible for enforcing the regulations. The committee decisions are final.

The designated captain of each team will be responsible for recording the team's score hole by hole. The tournament committee will be responsible for the sum of the scores. The scorecards must be delivered to the designated table immediately after finishing the game with the signatures of all the team players.

It is the responsibility of each player not to delay the field. The head Field Marshall will give warnings to players of slow teams. If a team receives 3 warnings, they will be penalized with 2 punishment strokes.

The team whose combined shots at the last 9 holes (from 10 to 18) are the lowest will be the winner. If there is a tie, the first 9 shots will be added (from 1 to 9), and there will be a tiebreaker hole by hole starting from 18 to 1.

The requirement of the course is golf shoes with "soft spikes" and golf clothing.

The gentlemen will play from the white marking tees and women and children less than 12 years of age from the red marks.

There will be trophies for the first three places.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the first closest to the pin of each assigned hole.

There will be excellent prizes for a hole in one!!

There will be a prize in the designated hole for the longest drive that lands in the first cut of the fairway. There will a prize for ladies and one for gentlemen. In the same hole with the same shot, there will be a prize for the drive closer to the centerline of the fairway, the shot can only count for one of the prizes.
