When are tee times and what are field sizes typically?
 

Tee times are adjusted weekly based on the needs of the host club/course but are typically between 7am and 10am.  Our goal is to get as much play completed before the heat of the day.  There is a field size limit of 60 players maximum, however, there are some weeks it is smaller based on the host club/course circumstances.
