Please note that prior EXISTING teams will be given priority placement with their previous year’s team over new additions, unless golfers must be moved to accommodate the creation of another team of the same grade for eligibility purposes. The need to round out teams will have priority over player preference. However, we will do our best with each golfer’s placement preference. Team formation will be completed early March.
