Spectator Policy
General Conduct
Your child is attempting to play at a national level and spectators will be held to a high standard at all HJGT events. Please be aware that coaching of any player, on the golf course, is not allowed. Quietly follow players and keep emotions to a minimum. Smoking and drinking should be kept to a minimum and is not encouraged at any of our events.
Phones
Cell phones are not to be used on the golf course. Please turn off all electronic devices or set them to a silent ring. Cell phones may be used at the clubhouse area (if the club permits).
Dress Code
All HJGT spectators are expected to dress appropriately at the host facility. Blue jeans, tank tops, short shorts, flip flops, and other casual attire should not be worn on the golf course.
Communication with HJGT Participants
Spectators may interact with players in the event of a health reason and handing them sunscreen, food, and beverage only. When a spectator decides to do this they should always do it in front of another spectator and/or other players. (Rule 8- Advice)
Rules Officials
Rules officials will be scattered throughout the golf course to assist players in need of rulings, to monitor pace of play, and for emergency situations. Players and spectators should notify a rules official when a situation arises on the golf course.
In the situation there is not a rules official nearby; a player should play a second ball under rule 3-3. Please be aware it’s the player’s responsibility to know the rules of golf.
Spectators should respect a rules situation. All spectators are asked to stay 25 yards away and not to be involved in the conversation. A spectator will be brought into a situation only if asked by the official.
Spectators should not confront Officials. If a spectator has a question, or information, for an Official it should be done away from the players and in a calmly manner
Advice (Rule 8. Advice; Indicating Line of Play)
"Advice is any counsel or suggestion that could influence a player in determining his play, the choice of a club or the method of making a stroke. Information on the Rules or on matters of public information, such as the position of hazards or the flagstick on the putting green, is not advice."
Spectators are encouraged to stay out of rulings entirely. As a spectator you do not want to put a player in a situation where he gets a wrong ruling and is disqualified. You also put the player at risk of breaching Rule 8 (advice). All spectators are highly encouraged to read through Rule 8 (advice) in its entirety.
Penalty for a breach of Rule 8(advice) is loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play.
How to properly follow a group (Where you should stand & walk)
  • All spectators should follow players from a distance (at least 25 yards) and stay in the rough or on the cart paths. Spectators should NOT be in the fairways.
  • Always stay to the side of the action and remain calm and quiet.
  • Please keep up with your group. Move forward to the putting green when all shots have been completed.
  • Spectators must never be on the putting surface and should observe the putting green from a reasonable distance that will not interfere with the competitors.
  • Looking for Balls – As a spectator please help spot balls for all participants. This is a practice that helps our pace of play and is highly encouraged by all spectators. Please keep in mind the five minute rule.
Spectator Cart Policy
(The HJGT takes this policy very seriously and any breach will result in the spectator cart being taken away)
Carts may be rented by spectators based on course availability - the daily fee is determined by each individual club and will be posted in the tournament information page on the website.
Spectator carts are required to stay on the cart path at ALL times. If the golf course doesn't have cart paths then the cart must stay in the rough at all times. A maximum of three carts will be allowed per group. This is to ensure each group has the opportunity to purchase a spectator cart (based on availability). Carts may only move forward on the golf course (from tee to green) except in case of a weather evacuation. Carts may not move while competitors are playing a stroke Only 2 people per cart are allowed except during evacuation. Spectator carts will NOT be used for shuttling of players from green to tee unless stated on the Notice to Players (local rules sheet) that is given to each player. Spectator’s carts will be used to assist with evacuation of players and spectators and may leave the cart path as necessary during an evacuation. In the event that we need to evacuate the course, spectators who have a cart are encouraged to pick up as many juniors as possible to ensure quick safety. Spectator carts may carry water for players but no golf equipment and may also carry any other spectator's items such as umbrellas etc..
Appreciation of Golf Course and Staff
It is appropriate to express your appreciation to the host facility at the conclusion of an event. The golf course staff works very hard to ensure the course is in great shape and that we can have a enjoyable event. This significantly affects the HJGT being able to return to that particular facility in the future. Please set a great example for your child and all people present. As a spectator we ask that you also respect our volunteers and tournament staff. If it weren’t for the staff members and volunteers, the HJGT would not be able to run the caliber of event that you prefer.
Pace of Play Policy
Summary
When the first player in a group has begun play on their 1st hole all players in the group are deemed to be on the clock and subject to timing. Additional info:
All 18 holes on the golf course will be considered a checkpoint. The HJGT will utilize a color-coded card system (Green cards and Red cards). An HJGT staff member, inside the scoring area, will confirm penalties with groups. It’s the players responsibility to know what color cards they receive throughout the round. The 1st group of the day is measured against time par until they get into position with any group in front of them.
Timing Cards
Green Card– Your group is in position AND/OR under the allotted time through that checkpoint
Red Card– Your group is out of position AND over the allotted time par (BOTH conditions MUST be met).
1st missed checkpoint – warning* (warning remains for duration of the round) 2nd missed checkpoint – liable to a penalty of one stroke 3rd missed checkpoint – liable to an additional penalty of two strokes 4th missed checkpoint – liable to disqualification
*Once a group receives a red card, they will have 2 holes to get either back in position OR under time par. If after 2 holes the group is still out of position AND over time par the group is liable to receive another red card.
When the group is back in position OR under time par they will receive a green card.
*When a group falls behind- regardless of the reason it must regain its position. Time for ball searches, rulings and walking time between holes is included in all maximum allowable times
*The group will be liable to penalties if in the Committee’s view a reasonable effort was not made by the players to complete their round within the allotted time. Any penalties will be confirmed and issued in the scoring area. No conversation or issuing of penalties will take place on the course.
Definitions
Overall Time Par: is the allotted time expected that all groups will complete a round based on golf course and weather conditions, setup, forced walks and quality of field.
A player is allowed 40 seconds to play a shot. A competitor’s time begins when the competitor has had a reasonable opportunity to reach his or her ball, can do so without interference or distraction. Play ready golf. In position times are measured from “Flagstick to Flagstick”. Your group time begins when the group in front of you replaces their flagstick and ends when your group replaces the flagstick.
Out of Position: When the group falls more than 15 minutes behind the group in front of them (flagstick to flagstick time).
The HJGT encourages ready golf and strives for rounds under 4-hours and 30-minutes.

Tour Policies

USGA Rules

The USGA rules will govern all play. If between the group, a ruling cannot be established and there is no rules official in the vicinity, we ask you play two balls and a ruling will be administered in the scoring tent.  Competitors must announce to your marker or fellow competitor that you intend to play two balls and which ball you wish to count if the rules permit. Please do not sign scorecards until a ruling has been made official.

Tie Breakers

Tie breakers for first place only will be decided by a sudden death 1-hole playoff. The sudden death playoff will continue until we have a champion. If weather or darkness prevents the tour from completing the playoff Co-Champions will be awarded.

Rainouts and Inclement Weather

The HJGT will make every effort to play an event to the conclusion. We will continue play in wet weather and cold weather unless lightning or severe weather is in the near forecast. In the event the participants need to evacuate the course, tournament officials and the host facility will sound an air horn. Once the air horn is blown you must discontinue all play. Wherever your ball lies, please mark it and we will make every effort to continue play. If an event is shortened due to rain there will be no refunds or credits issued.

An entire age division must be through at least the same 9 holes for the score to post for that day otherwise no scores will be posted.  If a stipulated round is completed by some groups and not others, the round WILL be official for those that finished the appropriate number of holes. No credits or refunds will be issued for shortened events.

HJGT Withdrawal Policy

Due to the rising number of withdraws in junior golf, the HJGT has instituted the following withdrawal policy. Once the player has decided to withdraw he or she must report to the tournament director. If a player fails to report to the tournament staff prior to withdrawing, their WD will be considered unjustified. If a player withdraws during the round for ANY reason he/she must submit a doctor’s note for the withdraw to be considered at JWD. Absolutely no exceptions will be made. The withdraw will be marked as a WD and then when documentation is sent in we will change to a JWD.

Justified Withdrawal The player is obviously ill or has been injured and physically cannot finish the round. The player will receive a WD. Illness or Injury and will be listed next to the players name in the tournament results. Once the tournament director has issued a justified withdrawal, no further action will take place. A player MUST submit a doctor’s note within 72 hours of the withdraw to be considered a JWD. Without documentation the player will remain WD.

Unjustified Withdrawal An unjustified withdrawal is a situation where a player is clearly withdrawing due to poor play or lack of ambition. An unjustified withdrawal also includes withdrawing for any reason without notifying the tournament director. The HJGT takes unjustified withdrawals very seriously and will not be tolerated. An NC (No Card) or NS (No Show) will be issued next to the player’s name in the tournament results based on the situation. Once a player has accumulated two unjustified withdrawals, his or her membership will be suspended for the rest of the calendar year.

Tournament Registration Deadlines

Deadlines to register for all events are 10 days before the 1st round. A lot of HJGT events fill up before the deadline so we always encourage players to register as soon as possible to ensure you get into the field. In the event the field is not full 10 days before the 1st round, the HJGT may allow late addition players after the deadline. This is solely at the discretion of the HJGT staff and the HJGT reserves the right to add any player after the deadline.
