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 on the championship website.  
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. Golf Canada's Rules of Golf will govern all play. The PGA of Canada Tournament Rules Committee shall have the final decision on all claims and disputes.  The competition is deemed to have closed when the trophy has been presented to the winner or, in the absence of a prize ceremony, when all scores have been approved by the Committee.  
2. Only brands of golf balls on the most current List of Conforming Golf Balls may be used.
3. Any driver selected for play 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.
