City Golf Championship/City Golf National Championship
Official Rules
Each Player is responsible for the correctness of his scorecard. Scorecards must be exchanged at the start of the round and a fellow competitor will be making the scores at each hole. Player and Scorer will be designated on each scorecard. Each scorecard must be signed by the marker and attested by the Player. All players in a pairing must submit their scorecards at the same time to avoid and/or resolve scoring disputes. The Score Board shall be considered final and prizes will be awarded to the winners. If a player wishes to withdraw from the tournament, he must notify a Tournament Official before leaving the course.

Rules of Golf; Close of Competition:
The Format and Tournament Rules for each individual City Golf Championship may vary, as these events are run exclusive by each municipality promoting their event. However, play for the City Golf National Championship will be governed by the current “Rules of Golf” as approved by the USGA. Local rules for the Course will also apply. Local rules will be provided by the Course and will be available on site upon request. Questions will be settled by the On-site Rules Committee. The competition will be closed when the winners have been determined and prizes awarded.

The Tournament is open to male professional golfers and male amateur golfers 18+ (with a USGA approved handicap between 0-14.9). The City Golf National is open to whose golfers who have won a qualifying City Golf Championship event in their State. The Tournament will give consideration to professional and amateur players who meet the qualifying criteria, but are unable to participate in a qualifying event, due to the absence of a City Golf Championship event in their State or City. All amateur players need to provide their most recent handicap certificate to the Tournament Staff when registering..

One Ball Rule
ONE BALL RULE: Rules 15-1 and 15-2 - The player must complete play of the hole with the ball with which he began the hole unless he is proceeding under a Rule that permits him to substitute a ball. The "one ball condition" requires the player to use the exact same brand and type of ball throughout the round. For example, if you tee off the first hole with a Titleist Pro V1x, then that's what you must play throughout the round. You may not switch to any other brand of ball, nor even to any other type of Titleist ball. You started with the Pro V1x, so the Pro V1x is what you must use on every stroke. A player who substitutes another ball when not permitted to do so incurs the general penalty (loss of hole in match play or a two stroke penalty in stroke play) under the applicable Rule. When changing balls, the player is only permitted to substitute a ball of the same brand or type and mark the ball.

Rules that permit the substitution of a ball: Rules 26-1 (Water Hazard Rule), 27-1 (Ball Lost or Out of Bounds) and 28 (Ball Unplayable) are examples of Rules that permit the player to substitute another ball. Rule 5-3 permits a player to substitute another ball during the play of a hole when his original ball has become unfit for play during the play of that hole. Other Rules (e.g. Rule 18, Rule 24, and Rule 25-1) permit the player to substitute another ball only if the original ball is not immediately recoverable.

Slow Play
The National City Golf Championship has established pace of play rules that may be modified from time to time to prevent slow play in its tournaments. Penalty strokes and eventual disqualification may be assessed to a player after the player's group has been advised by a Tournament Official that it is out of position and the player takes longer than the prescribed time to play a stroke.

The following conditions and policies shall govern regulation of the pace of play by the National City Golf Championship Rules Committee. In order to prevent a penalty for slow play, we suggest you read the following guidelines:

Rule 6-7 states:"The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player should not unduly delay play."

If a group is, "out of position", a City Golf Championship Official will begin to monitor them notifying them that the group is "out of position", and they are subject to individual timing. The group in question will have one hole to regain their correct position on the golf course before individual timing of the players in the group begins.

Any players in a group which is "out of position" who takes more than 40 seconds to play a stroke when it is his turn to play is subject to penalty under Rule 6-7, Undue Delay; Slow Play as follows:

1. One bad time of more than 40 seconds – Warning.
2. A second bad time of more than 40 seconds – 1 Stroke Penalty.
3. A third bad time of more than 40 seconds – Add. 2 Stroke Penalty.
4. A forth bad time of more than 40 seconds – Disqualification.
