TOURNAMENT SERVICES PACKAGESNEW FOR 2018!  Players that plan on renting a golf cart and warming up with a medium bucket of balls before each of the Qualifying Rounds can now save 20% on that expense by optionally pre-paying when registering online. Simply choose Tournament Services Package as an option when registering and the Skylinks golf shop will be waiting for you with cart key and range token on each tournament day. Please note though, that the Package is all-inclusive and “all or none”. It applies to BOTH of the Qualifying Rounds of the tournament, and once a player has begun using the Package, no refund of any kind will be made. Plan ahead and save!
