PRACTICE FACILITIES: To promote social distancing players will be assigned practice times on the driving range and practice putting green before the round.
The driving range is currently under construction at The Golf Club at Texas A&M and will not be available for the tournament. Players will have access to Aggieland Driving Range (3751 Rock Prairie Road West, College Station, Texas 77845). There are a limited number of parking spots onsite at Aggieland Driving Range, but there will be enough spots available for players. A player’s time on the driving range will start ONE HOUR AND 15 MINUTES before their tee time and the player will be allotted the first 30 minutes to warm up on the driving range. Example, if you have the 8 a.m. tee time, your driving range time is from 6:45 – 7:15 a.m. If you do not use the range prior to 7:15 a.m., you have forfeited your range time. An AJGA staff member will be monitoring the driving range monitoring players and enforcing social distancing. The rest of the player’s warm-up time can be spent on the practice putting green and/or short game area. Players may not arrive at Aggieland Driving Range more than one hour and 15 minutes before their tee time.
CODE OF CONDUCT: 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.
SPECTATORS: No more than one (1) guest per player is allowed on-site for the tournament. Spectators must be a family member, guardian or someone in your traveling party. Social distancing guidelines will be monitored and enforced throughout the tournament. Players with more than one spectator on-site could be subject to a one-stroke penalty under the AJGA Code of Conduct Policy.
FACE COVERINGS: It has been mandated by the state of Texas and Brazos County that all players, parents and spectators must wear face coverings while on site and are unable to social distance. Face coverings are also required at all times while inside the clubhouse.

Players and guests must comply with all rules & expectations at the host facility including, but not limited to, a restriction of the number of shots to be played, disrespectful behavior towards host club staff and/or members, overall time limits and limitations of non-paying guests. Failure to comply with these rules and The Golf Club at Texas A&M’s rules and regulations with regards to social distancing may result in the forfeiture of your practice round and potentially disqualification from the tournament.
AJGA CARES FOR THE COURSE: As part of the AJGA’s Code of Conduct policy players are required to fill their divots and ball marks on the golf course. Players will receive a small, lightweight sand bottle at the beginning of each event and should fill the bottles at the sand filling stations on each tee as necessary. The penalty for not following this policy is as follows:
· 1st & 2nd offense – Player receives a verbal warning
· 3rd & subsequent offenses – Player receives a one-stroke penalty
SCORECARDS: Players will be required to bring a mobile phone or a device that supports the Golf Genius application (available on iOS or Android) to use for their official scorecard and live scoring during AJGA events. Instructions on how to download and use the app can be found here. Players will be provided the GGID at the starting tee and will be assigned to mark for another player in the group. The player is responsible for providing their own mobile device as well as ensuring that it is fully charged to make it through the round.
