MSHSAA STATE GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS

FAN/SPECTATOR GUIDELINES – USE OF GOLF CARTS

 

The use of golf carts by coaches/fans/spectators as part of the “gallery” at the MSHSAA State Golf Championships is restricted.  The only exception to this restriction is the cases of coaches/fans/spectators with a medical condition, handicap or disability.  In these cases, the following protocol must be followed in order to receive approval to use a golf cart as member of the “gallery” at the MSHSAA State Golf Championships.

1.      Fan/Spectator must communicate to the school administrator the need for a written request from the school administrator on school letterhead indicating the necessity for permitting the use of a golf cart for the fan/spectator.  The written request from the school administrator must provide (first/last) name of fan/spectator, reason for request (medical condition, handicap, disabled) and the state championship site they will be attending.  The school administrator will provide the letter of request to the fan/spectator who will be required to bring the letter of request to the state championship manager at the site of the state championship being attended.  The state tournament manager will then communicate with the club/club administrator the approval for the use of a golf cart for the named fan/spectator.

 

2.      School Coach must communicate to the school administrator the need for a written request to be submitted to MSHSAA on school letterhead indicating the necessity for permitting the use of a golf cart by the coach during competition days at the state championships.  The written request from the school administrator must provide (first/last) name of the coach, reason for request (medical condition, handicap, disabled), description of the change in the medical condition/disability from the regular season to the postseason and the state championship site they will be attending.  The school administrator will submit the letter of request directly to the MSHSAA Office (Greg Stahl).  An approval letter from MSHSAA will be considered and submitted back to the school administrator. The school coach will be required to bring the approval letter to the state championship manager at the site of the state championship being attended.  The state tournament manager will then communicate with the club/club administrator the approval for the use of a golf cart for the named fan/spectator.

Note:  Any rental fee for a golf cart is at the expense of the fan/spectator.  Each course/site do not have the same amount of available golf carts for fan/spectator use; therefore, carts will be issued based on availability.  The amount of the cart rental fee is under the jurisdiction of the host site course, not the MSHSAA.
