LCJGT Policies For Parents
Important: Players and Parents must print, sign and return the LCJGT Dress Code/Code of Conduct Contract. Parents must also print, sign and return the LCJGT Release Form. If these forms are not completed and submitted to LCJGT by the 2nd Rules Clinic, the player will be ineligible to play in tournaments. Forms may be turned in at the Rules Clinics or mailed to the address on the form. Please print the forms by clicking on the links below:
Parents, friends and relatives are welcome to walk along as spectators. All spectators must display a yellow spectator tag while on the course. These tags can be picked up at the registration table. All spectators must follow the Spectator Code of Conduct:
Remain on the cart paths or in the rough and at least 30 yards away from the players. Do not walk on the fairways (exception may be made for adults assigned to assist golfers in the 9-10 year old division with scoring). Please stay out of harm's way.
- Do not give advice to a player during his or her round. Giving "advice" or coaching by a spectator is not permitted by the USGA Rules of Golf. The golfer/competitor may be penalized.
- Spectators can help look for lost balls, be a spotter, and approach the green to watch when the players are putting.
- Spectators need to be aware of other players on the course. Do not lag behind which prevents the group behind from playing their shots.
- Allow the Rules Officials to make the rulings. If the Rules Official needs your input, they will approach you.
- Violations will result in a two-stroke penalty and could include player disqualification.
- Place cell phones on silent while on the course.
- Respect the host faciltiy's policy regarding cell phones indoors, dress code, smoking, etc.
- Spectators that do not adhere to these guidelines may be asked to leave the course.
Caddies will not be permitted in any of the age divisions. Players are reminded that pull carts are allowed.
Carts may be rented to spectators with physical impairment after permission from the Tournament Director and the course. Certain courses may not allow spectator carts and we need to abide by their rules. Carts must remain on cart paths and/or in the rough.
Fees: The cost per event is $40 for 18 holers, $25 for 9 holers. This cost covers the green fees, range balls (where available) lunch, awards and prizes.
Rules Clinics: Parents of participants under 16 years old are required to accompany the players to the Rules Clinic. There will be a Parents Clinic held in a separate room while the Rules Clinic is conducted for the players.
Withdrawals: Withdrawals will be accepted up to and including the morning of the event. Please call or text Jon Chronister (717-371-4073), Peanut Erb (717-314-2763) or the pro shop at the tournament site to withdraw. You must call in advance to withdraw to avoid Did Not Show (DNS) status for the tournament.
Credits / Refunds: If a player withdraws 7 days or more before a tournament, for any reason, we will issue a tour credit for the tournament entrance fee. These credits can be used to pay for future events. If a player withdraws within 7 days of a tournament or on the day of the tournament, a credit will only be given if the withdrawal is because of medical reasons. If you want a refund, instead of a credit, request this by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did Not Show (DNS) and Did Not Finish (DNF): If a player is not present for his tee time, and has not notified the tournament director that he/she needs to withdrawal, it will be considered a Did Not Show (DNS). If a player does not complete a round that they start, except for illness or injury, it will be considered a Did Not Finish (DNF) Any DNS/DNF will result in forfeiture of the privilege to play in the championship tournament. Two DNS/DNF for any competitor will result in that golfer being removed from all of the remaining season tournaments with no refund.
