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.

POST ROUND: Limited practice will be permitted at the host facility. All players will have 60 minutes starting immediately when the player leaves the scoring area. Players must spend the first 30 minutes on the driving range (off the mats & players must purchase range balls inside the clubhouse) and the following 30 minutes on the putting green (next to the clubhouse). An AJGA staff member or volunteer will be monitoring the practice facilities and expect all players and approved spectators to appropriately social distance. Failure to abide by the outlined practice facility schedule or failure to properly social distance may result in forfeiture of additional practice time.

SPECTATORS: As approved by the local government and host facility players are allowed limited spectators on-site for the tournament. Spectators are limited to immediate family only, which includes, parents, guardians, grandparents and siblings. If a player is traveling with a guardian or chaperone, who may or may not be an immediate family member, only the guardian or chaperone will be allowed to spectate. Social distancing guidelines will be monitored and enforced throughout the tournament. Players with spectators on-site who are not immediate family could be subject to a one-stroke penalty under the AJGA Code of Conduct Policy
