Default Walk On Points

Can someone explain why I am sometimes assigned a point in the tee time system when I do a walk on? Seems to me there shouldn't be any because I neither requested or reserved a tee time. Many times I have played as a walk on and this was recorded in the tee time system but no point was assigned, other times a point has been. So what's the rule on this? This can't possibly be at the discretion of the starter.

Default Golf Points

If you play late in the day you get 0 points. In the morning or afternoon you get one point. Ask the starters shack what time the zero points goes into effect.

....playing = one point (except for later in the day rules).

Thanks for all your explanations, you were all very helpful. I will call the tee time folks to discuss.

Been there done that. Must have missed when they talked about a 3:00 cut off. Curious how I just happen to sign in at 2:59 two times in the last week. It would have been courteous of the starter to tell me that if I waited 10 minutes I would not be charged a point.

Probably had more important things on his/her mind.

Default Regarding placement points.

I was just reading the system. Where do I fit in as a priority spouse? Am I just considered a resident?

it's your responsibility to know the rules and regs. Don't go putting the blame on someone else...that might be just considered childish to some people.
