There are no rakes to smooth the bunkers after playing from them. You are entitled to lift clean and place no nearer the hole on smooth undisturbed sand if playing from a bunker. Please smooth the sand with your foot before leaving the bunker.
Flagsticks are to remain in the hole at all times. A ball hitting the flagstick and popping out of the hole is not considered holed. The ball must remain in the cup to be considered holed.
SCORECARDS: You will be assigned a scorecard to keep score of a player in your group. Scorecards will not be exchanged at the end of the round. Scores can be verified verbally among the players in the group after the round and only the Marker has to sign the card before it is turned in. It is encouraged that all competitors go home immediately after finishing their round. There should be no gathering of players on the golf course property. There will not be a scoreboard on site. All scores, skins and closest to the pin winners will be posted on the GKGA website.
USGA RULES GOVERN ALL PLAY

The winner will be determined by a card matchback using the USGA method of low back nine, followed by low last six holes, followed by low last three holes, followed by scores on individual holes working backwards from the 18th hole.
