2019 CODE OF CONDUCT

The JGAC provides a venue for our members to participate in a game which can be pursued throughout life and which helps to develop character, sportsmanship, and the values of integrity, honesty, self-discipline and competitive spirit.
 
Junior golfers are expected to demonstrate these values throughout the tournament season, both on and off the course. Participants and spectators are expected to show good sportsmanship and proper conduct during all JGAC events.
 
Any of the below behaviors will be met with severe consequences, including a one-stroke penalty, two-stroke penalty, or disqualification at the discretion of the tournament committee. Players are not entitled to a warning before receiving a penalty for code of conduct breaches. Flagrant and subsequent violations will result in disqualification. Repeated infractions will result in suspension of JGAC membership.

  • Cheating
  • Disrespect of officials, course staff and tournament directors
  • Throwing/slamming clubs or balls
  • Unreasonable delay of play
