  11. Secure with your Club Pro a date for your course to host team play for the next year.
  12. Familiarize team members with the rules of Four-Ball Match Play, Rule 30-3, the proper etiquette for the form of play, the standing rules and the importance of presenting ourselves as Ladies. No abusive or foul language.
  13. Ask each team player to have name identification on her bag.

  16. Inform the Coordinator of any changes to the Captain and Co-Captain's phone number/email address.
  17. If a substitute is made within 24 hours of play, the sub will take the place of the player who could not compete and make the changes on that match on the scorecard with the dots. If a substitute is made before then, just redo the scorecards putting the players in order of their handicap and the dots as they are applicable.
