Wait List Explanation and Management:
When the number of players registered for a tournament, or for a division in a tournament, hits the limit set on the website, the next player who registers will be put on the Wait List. You see this on your receipt as “Waitlisted”. The website records the date and time that a player was put on the wait list.
Players on the wait list are not in the field to play in the tournament. To see if you are in the field for an event, go to our schedule page. Select an event to show the tournament page. Scroll down on the page to see the participants who are in the field. If you are on the wait list, you will not appear in the participant list.
When another player withdraws from a full tournament, we fill the empty spot from the wait list, by putting the person with the earliest registration date and time into the field. Once registration for an event closes, we will try to see if we can fit any additional players into the field from the wait list. Sometimes, we may have the ability to fill out foursomes in a division from the wait list. In this case we might not go in the exact sequence that players are on the wait list. For example, we may have a Girls Futures player down on the wait list, but have an opening in the Girls Futures foursome to fit her in.
When we prepare tee times, we will e-mail any players who did not get into the field to let them know that they did not make it into the field. If any other players withdraw before the day of the event, we will replace them in the field from the wait list and e-mail them to let them know that they are in. Once the tournament is held, we will refund the tournament fee for any player that was on the wait list and did not get into the tournament.
