Delays and Cancellations: Decisions to cancel a State Day are made by the Club Pro, Manager or Course Superintendent based on course conditions. If the VSWGA is notified of a cancellation by 5:00 p.m. Monday, an email will be sent to players who registered online. When feasible, a notification will also be placed on the website.
If a player has not received an email on Monday evening, it is her responsibility to contact the club to see if a tournament has been cancelled or delayed. Players will not be emailed or texted.
Inclement Weather while Playing: In case of storm (thunder & lightning), anyone may leave the course at any time if they feel unsafe. If players are called in due to thunder, take shelter in your car, not in the clubhouse.
Play Stopped: Not all courses have a method of alerting players to stop play. Check with the Pro Shop for their signals. Many Pro Shops use the following:
- Discontinue Play Immediately: One prolonged note of the siren.
- Discontinue Play after Completion of Hole: Three consecutive notes of the siren.
- Resume Play: Two short notes of the siren.
If play is halted by the Pro Shop, all players must come in at that time. If all players do not discontinue play at the same time, the State Day will not count. If play is not resumed by the Pro Shop, the State Day will only count for Award Points and Closest to the Pin if two-thirds of the field completed play.
