Tournament Signup Procedures

Sign-ups:  For our home tournaments, sign-ups close at end of day on the Saturday prior to the tournament.  For our away tournaments, the closing date varies based on the rules of the course we are playing.  Many courses require full early payment so we have little flexibility in holding extra spots for late sign-ups.  Therefore, do the tournament chairman a favor and get your entries in early.  If a tournament fills up early we sometimes have the option of expanding it.  But we can't hold spots that we may have to pay for later.

Another reason to sign up early is that priority is given to early signups where checks are included.  This is the case if a tournament fills up or, in the case of a tournament such as the Match Play Championship or a 4 man team event, we must restrict the pairings to groups of four.  If a tournament looks like it is going to fill up, the Tournament Chairman will pay close attention to the payment date.

There are three ways so sign up for a tournament.
At the pro shop:  Place a check for the tournament fee, payable to Palo Alto Golf Club, in the envelope provided, and drop it in the lock box.
Through the mail:  Click the link below to see the schedule and follow the directions there.  If you're doubtful that the entry and check will arrive by the cut-off date, call or email the tournament chairman to let him know it's in the mail.
On the Internet:  Log in to your eGolfer account at www.ghin.com, select Palo Alto Golf Club as your eClubhouse, click the Events link at the top of the page and select the tournament you wish to enter. Payment is made through the secure section of eClubhouse using your preferred credit card.

This year the Tournament Chairman's duties are shared.
Check the schedule to see who is running a particular event.
Payment Policy:  You must include a separate check for each tournament when you sign up.  Please make the checks payable to Palo Alto Golf Club.  Our policy is to deposit your check once the tournament has been played.  Checks that are mailed must be received at the golf course before the tournament closing date.  For on-line signups, your payment will be debited from your credit card when you confirm the purchase.
Cancellations and Refunds:  If you have signed up for a tournament and need to cancel, contact the Tournament Director at one of the numbers shown above, not the Pro Shop.  It is not the responsibility of anyone in the Pro Shop to pass on your information to the Tournament Director.  Cancellation must be through direct contact with the Tournament Director.  Click on the "Policies" button to the left for information on the club's refund policy.
