2023 LOCAL QUALIFIER - HOST CLUB AGREEMENT
Note: In order to host a Local Qualifier, you MUST have an active PGA of Canada member employed at your club.
By completing this form to host a 2023 RBC PGA Scramble Local Qualifier, the CLUB agrees to the following:
The PGA of Canada is so fortunate to have the support of some of Canada’s largest corporations with this program. To keep the program viable and continue to provide world-class golf experiences for golfers across the country, the CLUB may be asked to host teams representing a program sponsor. Sponsor teams or representatives may contribute to the Local Qualifier through greeting the competitors on a hole or prior to the round, speaking post-round and/or providing gifts/prizing. Should an event be cancelled for any reason, the CLUB agrees to host the sponsor team(s) on the original event date or provide a free foursome pass for an alternate date.
In order to manage the event schedule, the selected event date may not be changed or postponed after March 31st. Should your event need to be cancelled for any reason, we require a minimum notice of 10 business days. Any event cancelled within 10 bussiness days of the event date will incur an admin fee of $75.
SUSPENSION OF PLAY DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER AND/OR DARKNESS
In the case of weather delays or the inability to complete a local qualifying event due to darkness, the Club MUST contact the PGA of Canada to inform them of the situation. A final decision will be reached collaboratively with the Club and PGA of Canada.
Will install five (5) to seven (7) blade flags provided by the PGA of Canada in advance of the event. Instructions on how to assemble and where to install the flags will be included within the kit.
Assign a representative from the club to conduct registration upon player arrivals. The registration table will be decorated with an RBC PGA Scramble table cover.
Will use the Golf Genius software provided for all tournament-related matters such as pairings, registration, scorecards, scoring, etc. To ensure the accuracy of scoring to the standards of the RBC PGA Scramble, it is imperative that all scores are entered into the Golf Genius system immediately following the conclusion of play. Any alterations of this must be pre-approved by the PGA of Canada. Technical support is offered through both Golf Genius and the PGA of Canada.
Will take pictures to capture the signage, registration, golfers and champions from the RBC PGA Scramble Local Qualifier.
The preferred method of registration is through www.rbcpgascramble.com, however, for any clubs that are pre-approved to collect registration within the CLUB, all player information must be inputted into Golf Genius at least five (5) business days in advance of the event, so the accuracy of the Handicap Indexes can be checked by the PGA of Canada.
The CLUB will utilize the marketing materials (posters, email templates, etc.) provided by the PGA of Canada throughout the year to attract the maximum number of participants.
Prizes for the top teams at each Local Qualifier will be provided by our partners.
The CLUB will send an invoice for any outstanding fees to the PGA of Canada within 10 business days of the event date. Alternately, outstanding fees to the PGA of Canada will be invoiced to the CLUB within 10 business days.
