Parents should note that lunch will not be provided at the playing venue after the conclusion of the morning round.

There will be sufficient time (at least one hour) for those players who opt instead to leave for lunch and return later for the afternoon rounds. Packed lunches are not allowed on the Elbow Beach Hotel premises. Please note that the hotel policy only allows refillable water bottles.
