Event Rules / Precautions
Your Safety and Ours is the Highest Priority
The slide show of pics shown to the left are just a few examples juniors following the CDC recommendations for social distancing and USGA guidelines for not removing the flagstick.
Our Event Rules, Instructions, and Guidelines
Follow all CDC, USGA, and local guidelines unless otherwise noted.
Junior golfers arrive no earlier than 60 minutes prior to your tee time (this is to avoid all players arriving in large groups together) and keep social distancing at all times unless otherwise communicated for special team meeting.
If any junior golfer participant, family member, or guests have been exposed to COVID-19 or are showing any possible COVID-19 symptoms they are NOT allowed to be at the event.
Junior Check-in will be at an outside location near the clubhouse or as specified. Juniors should approach one at a time (no line, keep social distancing, i.e. separation)
Six (6) foot social distancing shall be maintained at all times and will be strictly enforced. Junior golfers are all walking the course and are to maintain 6 foot separation between each other before, during and after the event.
Driving Range / Practice Facilities
Maximum of six (6) juniors per team on the driving range at a time (proper spacing shall be adhered to) or per the course guidelines.
Keep safe separation distance at all other practice facilities. See picture to left
Junior golfers shall arrive at their assigned tee no later than 7 minutes before tee time and no earlier than 12 min before tee time.
Spectators will keep 50 foot separation distance from junior golfers and if renting a golf cart will stay on the designated path.
Parents may help search for lost golf balls.
NO scorecards exchanged. Scores will be recorded at the end of every hole on phone (electronic scoring) and verbally verified with the entire group before teeing off the next hole.
NO removal of flagsticks. There will be a foam floaty/pipe in cup or equal to keep ball from going to bottom of hole and for easy pick up. According to USGA Rule 13.2a (2) “There will no longer be a penalty if a ball played from the green hits a flagstick left in the hole.”). Lift, clean and place rule in effect in all sand traps so rakes are not to be touched. If the pin is leaning due to wind or other and it could negatively impact the ball going into the cup, then another player may attend the pin (to keep it straight) with glove or towel.
Junior golfer participants are to refrain from shaking hands, etc. For introductions or at completion of round, a head nod, tip of the hat or simple wave would work.
Scoring table will be outside near clubhouse or as discussed at first tee. Only one player at a time will be allowed to approach scoring table TV to verify score. Other players in scoring area shall be six feet apart. Wipes & hand sanitizer will be provided for use right after players complete their round. Each Junior golfer's scoring will be confirmed one at a time & a large TV leaderboard will show hole by hole scoring so players don’t need to congregate / violate 6’ rule.
It’s strongly recommended that Parents / Players / Guests bring hand sanitizer and/or disinfectant wipes.
All parents are required to review and execute the UGE waiver.
