Members of this committee will staff Information stations for the benefit of all Championship patrons. Information regarding the event, the site and surrounding area will be distributed from these stations. This area will also serve as a lost and found for items lost on the golf course, as well as a storage area for prohibited items brought to the golf course by mistake (i.e. cameras, cell phones, etc…)

The names and scores listed are changed approximately every 10 minutes as another group plays the hole.
