GOLF AT THE COURSE OPTIONS

In person team practices and individual training sessions with coaches are NOT allowed at this time. Virtual practice sessions with your team through video, social media, texts or emails are allowed and encouraged!

9 Hole Round

What do you shoot playing 9 holes? Play as many rounds of golf as you would like.

What to record and submit? Record your score after each round and submit your 9-hole score, course you played at, and what color tees you played on during that round. If you play more than one round of golf, submit your score each time. (You can also take a picture of your scorecard and submit that instead.)

Unified Component

This year we will be offering a Unified 9-hole event where the score of the athlete and Unified Partner are added together for a total score. Each player must submit their own scores online.  On the results form choose Unified 9-hole and enter your 9-hole scores and partner’s name.  Your partner will also need to submit their own individual 9-hole scores separately. Please do not submit alternate shot scores.

Regular physical activity is vital for good physical, social and emotional health. While there is a risk of injury with any type of physical activity, the benefits of staying active far outweigh the risks.

You can reduce your risk of exercise injury by:

  • wearing the right shoes
  • using the correct equipment
  • drinking water and staying hydrated
  • warming up and stretching properly
  • being aware of your surroundings – always exercise and compete in a safe and level area clear of any obstacles or items
  • maintaining social distancing rules (stay at least six feet away from others)

Stop exercising and seek medical help if you experience symptoms such as:

  • discomfort or pain
  • chest pain or other pain that could indicate a heart attack, including pain in the neck and jaw, pain travelling down the arm or pain between the shoulder blades
  • shortness of breath
  • a rapid or irregular heartbeat
