On the Eve of the Metropolitan
On_th_Eve- The 98th Metropolitan Championship Starts tomorrow and before you arrive before your first round we wanted to share a few items. 

Link and Attached is the Notice to Competitors (Local Rules) for the Championship. 

A couple of items of note from the Notice. 

  • The Local Rule for Stroke and Distance is NOT IN EFFECT.  Therefore, if you think you may have a ball that is lost or out of bounds it is wise to play a Provisional Ball. 
  • The One Ball Rule is also NOT IN EFFECT, however you still must finish the hole with the ball you teed off with unless you substitute under an applicable rule. 

We will be cutting after Friday's Round to the low 32 and ties.

Tee Times will be redone after each round based on your cumulative score with the highest scores going out first.   Tee Times should be available by 7:30pm each evening and available at

When you arrive, THERE IS NO REGISTRATION, we ask that you are on the tee at least 5 minutes prior to your starting time.  

Practice Balls will be Set on the Practice Tee for your Warm Up.

If you choose to Ride, Staff will assign carts a few minutes prior to your starting time and assure the optional scoring system is set for your golf cart prior to play.  We do ask that one player/caddie/interested party with each group enter the groups scores either on the USGA Tournament Management App or Using the VIsage System that is connected to the Golf Carts. 

The Scores using these systems will not be official and tournament scorecards will be issued by the starter and turned in at the Scoring Area near the 18th Green. 

We will provide Caddies an MVGA Bib and it will be picked up on the 1st Tee prior to your round.   

There will be additional information added to the Metropolitan Website throughout the week and everything can be viewed by visiting 

Also, don’t forget to enter the Metro Contest, the annual draft picking players who compete in the Championship.  (Draft Pool from Players Entered through Thursday (7/15). 

Best of Luck and we will see you Tomorrow!
