                  may gauge good sportsmanship and conduct on the golf course.

Suspension and Expulsion – A member can be suspended or expelled from CTIUGC by two-
thirds vote of the Board. No member shall be suspended or expelled without reasonable
notification of the action proposed and an opportunity to be heard in their defense.

                               Chevron Tee It Up Golf Club

          All CTIUGC members can receive a copy of THE RULES OF GOLF, published by
           the USGA. The Tournament Chair will designate one person in each tournament
           foursome as Foursome Captain. The Foursome Captain should carry the USGA
           Rules book and settle any rules questions that arise.

          Read the score card for any local rules or designations that affect play.

          When a fairway is open ahead of your group, make every effort to speed up play to
           close the gap.

          Limit practice swings (preferably only one).

          Play Ready Golf – play your ball out of turn if another player is not ready and it is

          When long hitters are unable to tee off due to the danger of hitting into the group
           ahead, the shorter distance hitters should tee off first, if the tee boxes are convenient
           to do so.

          When your group finishes putting, move IMMEDIATELY to the next tee box, then
           mark your score cards.

          Drivers of carts should be careful to stay far enough away from the person hitting, so
           as not to be a distraction.

          On the putting surface, if your ball is near some else’s line, mark it with a coin or
           other flat marker. The conventional place to mark the ball is directly behind it. If
           your ball marker is directly in another player’s line, they may ask you to move your
           marker to the left or right. Remember to move it back before you putt.

          Be aware of where all the balls are marked, on the green, and be careful not to walk
           on another’s line of putt or to cast a shadow on their line while they are putting.

          Refrain from talking, making noise or moving around within another player’s view or
           hearing while they are getting ready to hit or putt.


Age Limitation – Any tournament entrant under the age of eighteen must play with a parent.

Sign-up Limitations – In the event that the maximum number of players allowed has been

members will be given first priority, if their registration form and check are received by the
tournament deadline. Guests are welcome on a “space available” basis.

Tournament Fees – Tournament fees must accompany the sign-up form to reserve a place in a
tournament. Cancellations prior to the sign-up deadline will receive a full refund for all fees
paid. Cancellations after the deadline will be refunded if the slot can be filled or if the course
agrees to refund the fees. There are no guarantees that your fee will be fully recovered.

The Tournament Chair(s) shall receive a CTIUGC certificate for their efforts. If the tournament
is being co-chaired, the certificate will be equally split between the co-chairs. Once received, the
certificate can be used towards any future club function, including membership. The Board,
prior to each season, will determine the certificate amount, based on available funding. The
current amount approved for this purpose continues to be $40 per event chaired.

Tournament Prizes – The Board will establish tournament prize funds at the beginning of each
year. Currently, this amount is $5.00 / player, unless the course designates a higher amount. The
Tournament Chair will be notified if they are needed to purchase prizes or obtain certificates on
the club’s behalf. Normally, at least one Board member plays in every tournament and will take
care of this function. The Tournament Chair should be aware of the following conditions:
         All participants, in their tournament, are eligible for prizes.
         Tournament Chair(s) will determine the amount of points allowed per prize (see the

Awards, for the season, will be presented at the annual banquet based on the following:
       Eligibility – To be eligible for awards, a player must be a member of CTIUGC and
          fulfill the awards criteria published by the Board at the beginning of the season.
       Awards criteria – will be determined by the Handicap Chair, approved by the Board,
          and issued to the members, usually before the first tournament of the season.

The Handicap Chair determines the selection of year-end awards.

Additional awards may be given at the discretion of the Handicap Chair or the Board (e.g. based
on number of tournaments played, special service to the club, etc.).

As required by most tournament contracts, CTIUGC must purchase merchandise or gift
certificates at the courses played. This merchandise must be fully distributed by year-end. The
distribution is solely up to the Board and is normally awarded at the annual banquet.

CTIUGC, for 2007, will only charge an additional $5.00 / player on tournaments that do not
include a prize fund in their pricing.
