Practice Round Policy

This policy is put into place for the health and safety of AJGA members, spectators, volunteers, sponsors, host facility staff and AJGA staff. Playing in the AJGA Practice Round is a privilege and players are expected to utilize proper etiquette by caring for the course and practicing social distancing. Please follow these, so that all participants can have an enjoyable, safe, and quick practice round.

The AJGA will not tolerate players or parents who do not adhere to guidelines put in place to promote social distance and player safety. We reserve the right to penalize and/or disqualify players who knowingly and willingly disregard our policies to promote social distance. Players are also responsible for the actions of their family members. Family members must not leave the cart path and Player must not touch flagsticks. These actions would be in violation of social distancing policies.

During the practice round if a group falls more than one hole behind all players will be asked to get back into position. If they fail to do so by completion of their next hole, the group will required to pick-up and resume play in position with the group in front of them. This may mean a group could forfeit the opportunity to complete a hole(s) as a result of their slow play.

In addition, the following guidelines are established:

  • Players must always carry or push their own bags.
  • Player’s one spectator must always remain on the cart path. No exceptions.
  • Players must play ready golf.
  • Players must not hit “two shots” at any time during the round except after normal completion of the hole players can hit 2-3 additional putts OR chips, not both. Extra bunker shots around the putting green are not allowed.

The violation of any of the above rules will result in the player being immediately removed from the golf course and will forfeit their right to play a practice round that day.
