PACE OF PLAY

Each player must play without undue delay, which is defined as taking no more than 45 seconds to play a shot. Those players who are first to play from a given area (tee, fairway, green, etc.) will have ten extra seconds to play their shot.

A group will be deemed to be out of position on the golf course when they are over time par.  Generally, time par is determined by each hole taking an average of 15 minutes to complete a hole and/or by within one hole of the group directly in front of them.

Some courses post pace of play times based on course length that allow fewer than 15 minutes per hole. When it is determined that a group is out of position on the golf course the group will be warned and told to speed up play.

If the problem continues, members of the group will be timed.  If a player takes more than the allotted time, he or she may be subject to a penalty.  First offense: warning; Second offense: two stroke penalty; Subsequent offenses: disqualification.  The 45-second rule assures playing without “undue delay” and prevents slow play.

 

CONDUCT OF PARENTS AND SPECTATORS

Parents should make sure players are at the tee on time for their appointed tee time, and at least ten minutes early whenever possible.

Parents must respect any official's decision and should develop an understanding of the Rules of Golf.  They should promote fair play, integrity, and proper golf etiquette.  Behavior contrary to the spirit of the game is not tolerated and players are subject to disqualification for their actions as well as for those of their parents.

Parents should provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere for all players and should encourage each player to accept responsibility for his or her own behavior and performance.  Participants should be encouraged to not withdraw from an event for any reason other than a significant injury, health issue, or other family issues that may occur.

Junior Tour players must carry their own bag. Caddies are only allowed for Youth events.  Players may use pull carts if permitted by the facility.  Parents are not permitted to coach or provide advice during the tournament and must maintain a reasonable distance from the players.  Parents may carry food, drink, umbrella, etcetera. Parents and spectators are expected to stay up with the group they are watching and may help look for balls that may be lost. 

Parents must not tolerate or use inappropriate language and are expected to set a good example for the junior players.  Smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages are not permitted on the golf course during the stipulated round and should be confined to the clubhouse or designated areas.
