For each day of the event, participants have the option to add golf carts for an additional $20 per person/round. Participants may also arrange a practice round (carts included) for $40 per person. There will also be an optional cash skins game/low daily round bet collected at the event.

All applications are subject to Committee approval.

We will be following NY State and CDC guidelines relative to social distancing and managing this event including pre-round staging of golf carts, the use of both sides of our driving range and the serving of meals. We appreciate your cooperation and adherence to these procedures at all times. Entries close at 5pm on Friday September 25th.

We look forward to your participation!

Sincerely,
The Commisso Tournament Committee
