If you sign up on the waiting list and are subsequently placed in the tournament and you do not show you are treated as a no-show.

If I win a skin or gaming event, how and when can I collect my prize?

What happens if I am a no show for an event?>
You will be sent an invoice for your green fees from the Saint Andrews Club who in turn has to pay the City of Brooklyn Park for the green fees. You will be unable to sign up or participate in future Saint Andrews Club events until the "no show" payment is received.

Who enters my tournament scores in the handicap computer?
The handicap computer is located in the Pro Shop. The Director or his representative enters only your tournament score in the computer. You must enter all other scores in the computer.

What is the policy for inclement weather?
In the case of inclement weather, it is the responsibility of the Pro Shop to decide if the course is deemed unplayable. It is best to assume all rounds will be played when scheduled. Only the designated professional for the day in the Pro Shop makes the official call.
