Frequently Asked Questions
How do I secure a date for my outing?
All events are subject to availability. Dates are secured when a deposit has been made, and when a contract has been signed by the Host and Crosswinds Golf Club. Deposit is due within ten (10) business days upon receipt of contract. 100% is applied to the final bill, which is due in full upon receipt of the bill for all charges from Crosswinds Golf Club.
What is the best tournament format for my event?
We recommend all golf events play a “scramble” format. We find this format allows players of all levels to enjoy themselves while maintaining an acceptable pace-of-play on the course.
What is a scramble tournament?
1. All players will hit a tee shot.
2. The team then selects the best location from which to proceed.
3. All players play their next shot from selected location.
4. Continue this process until the ball is holed.
What about special contest holes?
We are happy to set-up special on-course competitions for your event. Contests include: Long drive, closest-to-the-Pin, Hole-In-One and putting contest. How long should I plan for my round?
We all know that golf should take no longer than 4 hours. We recognize the typical golf outing includes a number of higher handicap golfers and therefore schedule outings based on a five hour round. It is important that groups maintain an adequate pace and keep up with the group in front of them.
What is the dress code?
Crosswinds Golf Club requires proper golf attire at all times while on club property. Golf shoes must have soft spikes. Men’s shirts must have a collar. Women’s shirts must have either a collar and/or sleeves. Mock turtlenecks must have a collar of at least 3/4”. Shorts are to be Bermuda length.
The following attire is NOT acceptable:
• Denim of ANY kind
• Mesh Shirts
• Gym shorts/pants
• Tennis outfits
• Bathing attire
What about inclement weather?
All outings are held rain or shine as long as the course is playable and carts are permitted. If Crosswinds determines the course is unplayable, you will have the opportunity to reschedule at a mutually convenient date.
What happens if I cancel my event?
If the event is cancelled by the client deposits shall be refunded only if the cancellation is made in writing at least four (4) months prior AND only if Crosswinds Golf Club is able to book a substitute outing for the same date.
Can I bring outside food and drinks?
In accordance with Massachusetts State Law and our liquor license, Crosswinds Golf Club is prohibited to allow food and beverage supplied by outside sources. We reserve the right to hold items, including coolers, until the completion of your event.
