ALAMEDA, CALIFORNIA (April 18, 2006) -- After reviewing the course conditions
and our options with NCGA, with several members of the Commuters Committee, and
with the administration of the Chuck Corica golf course, General Chairman Doug
Poole has issued an update about the situation to the Tournament Committee, as
First, the course will not be in condition to play a tournament this weekend.
The reserved tee times have been released back to the course. The tournament will
be played on one weekend, April 29 and 30, as follows:
The entire field will play on Saturday, one half on the Clark course, and one
half on the Fry course, as previously scheduled for April 22. At the conclusion
of play on Saturday, the field will be cut to the top 40 plus ties from each course.
On Sunday, those making the cut who played the Clark course on Saturday will play
the Fry course, and those making the cut who played the Fry course on Saturday
will play the Clark course. All players in the regular division will play from
the first tee on each course on Sunday. The tournament will be a two round tournament.
The Senior Division will play a one round tournament on Sunday beginning on the
tenth hole of the Fry course.
The full Committee meets tomorrow night, Wednesday, April 19, to discuss this
in detail and to make any revisions it may deem necessary. For now, it's a 2-round tournament, second weekend only, with initial tee time
assignments the same as for the Saturday, April 22 round, but to be played on
Saturday, April 29, 2006 instead.
