The proceeds raised during the tournament will be donated to CASA of the South Plains to help ensure the needs of each child in foster care remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system. There are approximately 400 children in the South Plains who desperately need the gift of a CASA, and this tournament will help to ensure CASA is able to serve more of these most vulnerable children.

CASA of the South Plains inspires, educates, and empowers solution-minded community members who are committed to supporting the best interest of children in the foster care system. Volunteer Advocates create connections and promote nurturing relationships for the child and family, encouraging hope and healing. Through court appointment and collaborative efforts, Volunteer Advocates share informed recommendations for the well-being of the child. CASA supports children in six counties in the South Plains: Cochran, Hale, Hockley, Lubbock, Terry, and Yoakum.

Format: Bracket style 18-hole match play. This year each hole will be worth 1 point and will be awarded to the team with the lowest single ball scored on that hole. HOWEVER, in the event that the lowest single ball ties, the lowest combined score will decide the hole. Additionally the last flight will play a shamble format to help speed up play.

Location/Date: This year's competition will begin August 16, 2024 and be held at: The Rawls Course at Texas Tech, 3720 4th St, Lubbock, TX 79415

Rounds: Each team is guaranteed 3 rounds. A max of 3 rounds will be played during tournament play. 

Tie-Breakers/Rules Questions: In the event that the match is tied after 18 holes of play, the match will continue to extra holes on a sudden death basis. Extra holes played will be determined by the professional staff at the course you are playing. In the event of a rules question, policy question, rainout or continued play not being possible due to no daylight, procedures will be dictated by the professional staff at the course you are playing.

Handicap/GHIN: No more than a 6-stroke difference between teammates will be allowed. Players must have a GHIN established and consistently maintained. If you do not have a GHIN established, contact your home course about establishing one. The tournament will consider allowing players without a GHIN established into the tournament but with heavy verification procedures done by the professional staff and bracket committee regarding what you turn in as your handicap. 

Calcutta: In addition to prize money, every team in every bracket will be auctioned online at a website to be determined. More to come on this as we get closer to the tournament. Calcutta money will be handled by the folks running the calcutta and no funds will be held aside from out-of-pocket expenses(website fees).
