Boys Rules

1, Rules of the United States Golf Association will apply, along with FWJGA and local course rules. In the interest of speeding the pace of play, we encourage players not in the Championship Flight to hit-when-ready. Normally, the player farther away from the green will hit first. However, if a player nearer the hole has reached his ball and is ready to hit, he should do so as long as it’s not interfering with another player. On the green, the players should revert to the farthest from the hole to hit first.

2, All rulings will be made by a golf professional or a tournament official, and rulings will be final.

3, Minimum age is 8 years old and maximum age is 18 at time and during the tournament. A contestant cannot be in college or be playing on a collegiate golf team.

4, Each contestant must be able to carry his own bag of clubs, or be able to pull a golf cart, know how to keep score, and have a general knowledge of the rules. Not all courses have pull cart rentals. Parents/players should check with courses about availability of pull carts. A player cannot have a caddie. Because the USGA is allowing rangefinders as are most junior tournaments, rangefinders (but not with slope) will be allowed. Parents, relatives, friends are allowed to carry water, ice, etc., to share with the participants.

5, Parents, relatives and/or friends are not allowed to assist any contestant during play. This includes, but not limited to, giving advice or walking alongside the contestant during competition. Spectators must stay at a reasonable distance from competitors. Players should settle all rules and scoring disputes. If there is a question about a rule during play and a FWJGA official is not present, a player should play two balls, scoring each one, and have the question settled upon completion of play.

6, Each contestant is responsible for reporting to the starter 20 minutes before his tee time, and knowing location of courses.

9, There are no greens fees or entry fees. Players are responsible for their own food and drinks and must dress appropriately. Most courses require collared shirts and bar cut-offs.

10. Failure to heed these rules could cause the contestant to be penalized.

10, Entry is limited to the towns on the Eligibility list.

For Parents

Parents, please read the information regarding advice and watching your son.

These rules also apply to relatives, friends or other spectators.

1. Advice and/or coaching are not allowed by parents, relatives or spectators during competition. This includes any conversation with the player that could influence his play, club selection or how to perform a stroke. If it's deemed by the FWJGA officials that this rule is not being followed, the player is subject to being penalized. Encouragement is OK, but not advice.

2, Parents, relatives or other spectators can't serve as caddies, which aren't allowed.

3, Renting a cart to follow players is at the discretion of the participating courses.

4. Carts are for only two people. Players and spectators are not permitted to ride on the back of a golf cart. Spectators, whether walking or riding a cart, should stay on cart paths. In the absence of cart paths, spectators should stay in the roughs to watch the players. Always keep enough distance from players to avoid the temptation of offering advice.

6. Spectators can help search and locate golf balls.

7, Parents are allowed to carry drinks, ice, food, first-aid supplies, medicine, umbrellas, etc., for their son. However, when supplying these, parents must avoid offering advice.

8. Parents or other spectators are not allowed to give rulings or help keep score. Players should settle all rules and scoring disputes. If there is a question about a rule and a FWJGA official is not present, a player should play two balls, scoring each one, and have the question settled upon completion of play.

9. If a parent or spectator repeatedly violates the above rules, he/she might be asked to leave the course and wait in the clubhouse for the player to finish.

10. All cell phones or similar devices should be turned off or on vibrate while following the players.

11.Because the USGA is allowing rangefinders as are most junior tournaments, rangefinders (but not with slope) are allowed.
