Rules & Regulations

All amateur golfers with an established USGA Handicap Index (or equivalent) are eligible to compete in the Mesquite Amateur. All entrants and guests must be a minimum of 21 years of age. Full rules and regulations are in the printed player’s handbook.

An amateur is considered to be any golfer who plays the game as a non-remunerative and non-profit making sport and does not receive remuneration for teaching golf or other activities because of golf skill or reputation, except as allowed by USGA Rules of Play.

Handicap Requirements

For the 2017 event the Mesquite Amateur has partnered with the Southern Nevada Golf Association to handle all handicaps and scoring. The Mesquite Amateur and SNGA have developed the following updated rule that will be in place for tournament indexes and adjustments during the tournament.

The SNGA is a licensed state/regional golf association required to administer the USGA Handicap System™ on behalf of the USGA, it is understood that the SNGA must be diligent in ensuring an equitable playing field in its competitions.

All competitors agree to have an Handicap Index (or in Canada a Factor) issued by a licensed member club of a recognized state or regional golf association, the USGA, or an international Federation in order for the handicap committee to be able to review their scoring history (peer review). In most instances in the United States, a Handicap Index will be computed by GHIN. In Canada it will be computed by the RCGA Network. If a player is found not to have an Index computed by a service of a recognized association the player’s handicap chair or golf course professional will be contacted by the committee.

HANDICAP INDEX – All competitors in the Mesquite Amateur shall have Course Handicaps calculated using their 12-month low Handicap Index (June 1, 2016 to May 1, 2017).

All players (not on GHIN) should bring with them a copy of their last 20 scores and index history to the tournament in case the Tournament Committee has any questions.

If a player is found not to have an adequate score history or a peer review is not able to be done by the tournament committee that player will play at 50% of their index and will be contacted by the committee.


If any player would like to petition for a different index other than their 12 month low handicap they can submit that request to the tournament committee and the committee will take it under careful review and the player will be notified of the committee’s decision. Reasons for petition may be but not limited to injury, health issue, moved locations (scores have not been moved over) etc. All petition requests can be sent to

PERFORMANCE ADJUSTMENTS – The Mesquite Amateur Tournament Committee reserves the right to adjust the Course Handicap of any competitor during the Mesquite Amateur Tournament.

  1. During the course of tournament play, after every round, players that shoot a score with a negative differential will be subject to additional review by the Mesquite Amateur Tournament Committee. Players who have a single round score with a net differential in excess of 125:1 odds as per Appendix E: Exceptional Score Probability Table of the USGA Handicap System Manual, shall have their course handicap (and therefore Net Differential) adjusted to a level that falls below 125:1 odds.
  2. Should a player have a second consecutive round score with a negative differential, then a second adjustment, applied to ALL prior tournament rounds shall be made so that the adjusted falls below the 125:1 threshold and or subject to disqualification.

Any disciplinary actions imposed on a contestant by the Mesquite Amateur may be formally communicated to a representative of the contestant’s club and/or to any other allied golf association that the Mesquite Amateur deems appropriate.

The USGA Rules of Golf and its decisions will govern play. See applicable “Notice to Competitors” at each golf course for additional local rules and conditions. Players are to disregard any local rules on the golf course score card that are not listed on the “Notice to Competitors” for that course.

Out of Bounds

Defined by the inside points, at ground level of white stakes, boundary fence posts or the inside edge of curbing when on a road determines out of bounds. Rule 27-1A ball which crosses a public road defined as out of bounds and comes to rest beyond that road is out of bounds even though it may lie on another part of the course.

Water & Lateral Water Hazard Stakes & Lines

Water hazards are defined by yellow stakes and or lines. Lateral water hazards are defined by red stakes and or lines. When both stakes and lines are used to define water and lateral water hazards, the stakes identify the hazard by the line and defines the margin of the hazard. When water hazards and lateral water hazards are bounded by out of bounds, the hazard margin extends to and coincides with the out of bounds line.

Environmentally Sensitive Areas (ESA)

ESA’s are defined by a green tip on the top of a water hazard or lateral water hazard stake. Play is prohibited from these areas and the player must drop a ball with a one-stroke penalty according to Rule 26, the Water Hazard Rule. If the player’s ball is not in the ESA but his or hers stance or area of intended swing is interfered with by the ESA he or she shall drop without penalty no nearer the hole at the nearest point which provides complete relief from the ESA. Penalty for playing from an area defined as ESA will be two strokes.

Ground Under Repair

Defined by white lines. French drains and a hole made by a greens keeper are defined as ground under repair according to Rule 25.

Cart Paths

Relief without penalty is only available when cart paths are artificially surfaced. Artificially surfaced includes cement, asphalt, gravel, etc. but not dirt (including hard pan) or random native rocks. White lined areas that are tied into artificially surfaced paths and roads are considered part of the artificially surfaced path and thus entitled to relief under Rule 24 Obstructions.

Drop Areas

Drop areas have been designated for certain relief situations. Please check the notice to competitors at each course for the exact locations. Drop areas may not be painted but defined as the forward teeing ground meaning that a player may drop anywhere on the teeing ground in the closely mown area.

Embedded Ball Through the Green

Rule 25-2. A ball embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground in any closely-mown area through the green may be lifted, cleaned and dropped, without penalty, as near as possible to the spot where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green. “Closely-mown area” means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to fairway height or less.

Time of Starting

The note to Rule 6-3 shall be in effect.


List of Conforming Balls

The ball the player uses shall conform to requirements specified in Appendix III in the Rules of Golf.

Close of Competition

The competition shall be deemed closed when the prizes have been presented to the winners.

Doubt as to Procedure (Second Ball)

Rule 3-3. In stroke play only, when during play of a hole a competitor is doubtful of his or her rights or procedure, he or she may, without penalty, play a second ball. After the situation which caused the doubt has arisen, the competitor should, before taking further action, announce to his marker or a fellow-competitor his decision to invoke this Rule and the ball with which he will score if the Rules permit.

The competitor shall report the facts to the committee (the Golf Professional at the course) before returning his scorecard unless he scores the same with both balls; if he/she fails to do so, he/she shall be disqualified.

Pace of Play

All groups will be expected to keep up with the group in front of them. If your group falls more than a hole behind, a marshal will ask your group to pick up your pace. If the group does not pick up the pace a rules official will be out to time each individual player. Players will have 45 seconds to hit their shot. Two bad times and the players will be warned. The next bad time (3rd total) the player will be assessed one-stroke. A second bad time (4th total) will result in a two-stroke penalty. If a player incurs another bad time (5th total) they will be disqualified and asked to leave the course.

Daily Instructions

All contestants will receive their scorecards at the course they are playing that day. Players must exchange scorecards with another participant in the group. No competitor shall keep their own score. Players shall record their gross (actual) score only. Net scores will be calculated by the Committee.

At the conclusion of each round, all contestants must turn in their scorecard signed and attested (the player and marker’s signatures) to the designated scoring areas at the course. Any player who leaves the course without signing their scorecard will be disqualified.

Any player who does not turn in their scorecard immediately following play to the designated scoring area will be subject to disqualification.

Any player who accuses another player of a Rules infraction after the scorecards have been returned may also be disqualified (along with the player) for entrapment. The time to bring up any Rules questions is before the scorecards are returned. It should not be thought as confrontational, but rather as assistance, as you may keep that player from being disqualified. You also have an obligation to protect the rest of the field.

Any player seeking a ruling must contact the Golf Professional at the golf course they are playing prior to returning their scorecard. Ties will be broken as described in the Player Handbook.


If written cancellation is received before May 1st, 2017 a full refund will be given minus a $20 processing fee. If a cancellation is received May 2nd-14th, 2017 you will receive a refund less $100 processing fee. No refunds, regardless of circumstance, will be provided May 15th, 2017 or after. All cancellations and refund requests must be submitted in writing. Please allow 30 days to process requests.

Tentative Course Rotation as of 4-18-2017

Scoring 2017



There isn’t an amateur tournament in the county that can match golfers with a course line-up that includes the greatest names in golf — Cal Olson, Keith Foster, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer. And yet, all of them, taken by the beauty of the Nevada-Utah border, have made Mesquite one of the most unique experiences in the West. Each golfer is guaranteed to play at least of three award-winning courses or more, depending which course is chosen for the practice round and the championship round.

Casablanca Golf Club

The CasaBlanca Golf Club features an 18-hole, 7,011-yard championship course designed by Cal Olson. The course winds through the region’s natural desert wetlands, offering wonderful views of the surrounding Virgin River Mountains in Mesquite. Thirteen of the 18 holes at the CasaBlanca Golf Club have water challenges.

Falcon Ridge Golf Club

Falcon Ridge features a 6550-yard par 71 desert layout with several elevated tee shots from high plateaus. Known for its spectacular elevation changes, some holes cut into the rolling hills that make up the area.

The Palms Golf Club

The Palms in Mesquite is almost like playing two different courses, with the front nine featuring extended fairways and the back nine challenging players with mountain-style play. The 15th hole has a breathtaking view and a vertical drop of 114 feet.

The Canyons Golf Club at Oasis

The Canyons at Oasis Golf Club is one of the most beautiful 18-hole, par 71 courses in Mesquite. The meticulously-designed Bermuda green course takes advantage of the area’s natural vistas.

Coyote Springs Golf Club

As the area’s Jack Nicklaus Signature course, golfers can expect a challenging par 72, 7,471-yard layout. Eleven lakes come into play and many consider this to be one of Nicklaus’ finest desert creations.

The Palmer Golf Club at Oasis

The Palmer course is a masterpiece that provides a par 71 experience set against rugged canyon fairways and meticulously contoured greens. It is rated among the “Top 10 You Can Play” by Golf Digest.

Conestoga Golf Club

The Gary Panks designed Conestoga course managed by Troon Golf opened for play in January of 2010. The scenic 18-hole course is artfully interwoven with the character and contours of Sun City Mesquite’s spectacular landforms. Undulating through canyons with gentle elevation changes, rugged rock outcroppings and tranquil water elements the course presents a masterful design.
