PLAYOFFS
A tie for the Championship (including Legends Division) will be decided by a hole-by-hole playoff immediately following conclusion of play.  Any competitor involved in a playoff and not immediately available assumes the last playoff position.  Multiple no-shows for playoffs shall be decided by lot.

CADDIES
1. The use of caddies is not compulsory.  Competitors requesting a caddie should mark the appropriate section on the application.  Limited caddies may be available at the host club.  The PGA of Canada will attempt to assist competitors with their caddie requirements, but neither the PGA of Canada nor the host club is responsible for securing caddies for competitors who desire them.
2. If an entrant has requested assistance in obtaining a caddie on the entry form, the entrant will be required to compensate the caddie arranged by the host club with the minimum caddie fee ($40) for the number of rounds in the Championship, unless the competitor makes arrangements with the host club to cancel the request one week in advance.
3. Pull carts (excluding those motorized) are permitted. 
4. Caddies must adhere to the PGA of Canada Dress Code, a copy of which is available at www.pgaofcanada.com.  
5. Caddies must wear flat-soled shoes.  Violation of this condition may result in DISQUALIFICATION of the competitor.

RULES OF GOLF; CLOSE OF COMPETITION; CONFORMING GOLF BALLS; CONFORMING DRIVERS
1. The Rules of the Royal Canadian Golf Association govern play as modified by the Local Rules on the PGA of Canada Rules of Play Card.  Supplementary Local Rules will be given to each competitor at the player’s first tee.  Local Rules on the host club scorecards shall not apply.  The PGA of Canada Committee shall have the final decision on all claims and disputes.  
2. The competition is deemed to have closed when the PGA of Canada Committee has approved all scores.
3. Only brands of golf balls on the most current List of Conforming Golf Balls may be used.
4. The driver a player carries must have a clubhead that is listed on the most current List of Conforming Driver Heads.

TRANSPORTATION
Competitors shall walk at all times during a stipulated round, including the official practice round. In exceptional circumstances, the PGA of Canada will evaluate each individual request to use motorized transportation in PGA of Canada National Championships due to a claimed disability. In order for the PGA of Canada to properly evaluate such requests, it is necessary to submit medical documentation stating the exact nature of the disability and how that disability prevents such player from walking during a stipulated round. In addition, players will have to submit sufficient information to enable the PGA of Canada to determine that providing a cart would not provide a player with an advantage over other players. Please visit www.pgaofcanada.com to download via Adobe Acrobat Reader a copy of the PGA of Canada Transportation Request Form, which each player seeking a golf cart for herself due to a disability must complete and submit to the PGA of Canada with the original entry form prior to the applicable closing date.

TRAVEL
The PGA of Canada assumes no responsibility for entrants' travel arrangements. Because the tournament may be oversubscribed, the PGA of Canada advises entrants not to book travel or room arrangements prior to confirmation of tournament acceptance unless those arrangements can be cancelled without penalty.

DISTANCE-MEASURING DEVICES
The Note to Rule 14-3 is in effect.  In this competition, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., gradient, wind speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.

DRESS CODE AND FOOTWEAR
1. Competitors must adhere to the PGA of Canada Dress Code which is available at www.pgaofcanada.com and in the competitor registration package.
2. It is a condition of PGA of Canada National Championships that shoes with metal or traditionally designed spikes (regardless of composition, i.e., ceramic, plastic, etc.) are prohibited.   Penalty for breach of this condition is DISQUALIFICATION.

TIME OF STARTING   
All players in a group must be present and READY TO PLAY at the time laid down by the Committee.  The order of play is not relevant.  READY TO PLAY is defined as being on or near the player's first tee accompanied with the necessary equipment needed to put a ball in play.  Notification by a PGA of Canada Rules Official will be given to late starters on the first tee or as soon as practicable.

ANTI-DOPING POLICY
