BFI Golf Tour Rules for 2023 For the Main Tour

  1. At time of registration Tour Players must have a valid USGA GHIN Number to qualify for the NET Division Championship.
  2. Due to limited access to the courses, golfers who cancel confirmed play dates (2) or more times, will be disqualified from becoming a finalist in either flight of the Tour Championship and risk not completing their three rounds.  All make-up/ re-scheduled rounds will take place at Newton Golf & Country.
  3. Golfers who choose not to complete all 18 holes for each of their (3) rounds, your score will be posted as “Incomplete”. You will not be eligible to qualify for the Low Gross or Low Net Championship Playoff.
  4. The bfi Commercial Real Estate Tour is conducted under the rules of the MGA (Metropolitan Golf Association) and the USGA (United States Golf Association).  The USGA (www.ghin.com) system is used to calculate and record player’s Index and Handicaps and establish the Tour’s final Net Division participants.“For rounds that are terminated due to weather or darkness, once 12 holes are completed, the player’s handicap will be applied to the final remaining holes for the round’s total score.”
  5. In the event of a tie occurring in either flight at the conclusion of regularly scheduled rounds, an 18-hole play-off will be held to determine the finalist.
  6. In the event a player qualifies for both the Gross and Net finals, their Gross standing takes precedence, and they will play in the Gross Flight finals.
  7. All hosting sponsors have the cooperation and understanding of their respective clubs.  In the event a tour player arrives after the agreed upon meeting time, the hosts and other guests will tee-off as scheduled.  The players who arrive late may join the foursome already in progress but will be disqualified from becoming a finalist in either flight.
