If you have a question regarding what age division you should be competing in, please email info@jgnc.org. When you register, our system will automatically put you in the correct age division based on the cutoff date of May 1st, 2021. 

 

If a player turns 19 before the 2021 National Championship on November 14th - 16th OR is attending college and playing on a college golf team, they will NOT be allowed to compete.  

Hard Card

The current Rules of the United States Golf Association and the R&A govern all play in NB3 JGNC events. 

RULE 20.1 c(3): 
The NB3 JGNC strongly urges its players to play 2 balls if they are not sure how to proceed with a ruling as a rules official is not always present. In addition to playing 2 balls, players are also asked to play a provisional ball when he or she thinks it could be lost (this is even more important now that the search time has been shortened to 3 minutes). 

MEASURING DEVICES: 
Measuring Devices will be permitted in all NB3 JGNC events however, they cannot measure anything other than true yardage (ie, slope or wind). 
• When the local rule is in effect, a distance-measuring application may be used, provided the specific application is restricted to “distance only” and the device does not have any other “non-conforming” features. This is the case even if these other features are not being used.

ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION DEVICES: Multi-functional devices such as mobile phones, PDAs, etc (i.e., devices that are primarily communication devices, but which may have other potential uses) may be used as follows:

    • The device may be used for any non-golfing purpose (e.g., as a communication tool to phone, text or email), subject to any club/course regulations and the rules on accessing advice-related matters – see Decision 14-3/16. The NB3 JGNC recommends that ALL players only reference their mobile devices when utilizing the Shotstat Live app. 
    • When the local rule is in effect, a distance-measuring application may be used, provided the specific application is restricted to “distance only” and the device does not have any other “non-conforming” features. This is the case even if these other features are not being used. As above, the rules on advice-related communications (including the use of the internet) still apply.


PACE OF PLAY: 
Time Par is 4 hours and 35 minutes. Please keep pace with the group in front of you and play ready golf. Players have 40 seconds to play their shot. Only individual players may be held accountable for their pace of play (no group penalties). 

-Out of position: When a group falls more than 15 minutes behind the group in front of them. Flagstick to Flagstick time 
1st missed checkpoint – warning* (warning remains for duration of round) 
2nd missed checkpoint – Subject to penalty of one stroke 
3rd missed checkpoint – Subject to additional penalty of two strokes 
4th missed checkpoint – Subject to disqualification 


WEATHER: 
A player has the right to suspend play if he feels threatened by dangerous lightning conditions without penalty. If NB3 JGNC Staff or host club should indicate suspension of play all players should mark their balls, cease playing immediately and seek shelter. 
Discontinue Play Immediately: One prolonged siren or air horn blast. 
Discontinue Play for non-dangerous situation: Three consecutive short siren or air horn blasts. 
Resume Play: Two short siren or air horn blasts. 

OUT OF BOUNDS: 
Out of bounds is defined by white stakes at ground level, white dots, freshly painted white lines, perimeter fences, inside edge of paved public roads or any combination thereof. A ball coming to rest on or beyond any paved public is out of bounds, even if it comes to rest on another part of the course that is in bounds for other holes. 


PENALTY AREAS: 
• When a penalty area is bounded by out of bounds, the penalty area edge extends to and coincides with the out of bounds line. 


GROUND UNDER REPAIR: 
Defined by white lines. Other areas of ground under repair, even when not marked, include: 
• French drains (trenches filled with stones or the like). 
• Large or hard ant hills on the course. 
• Edging grooves around putting greens. 

 

AUTOMATIVE TRANSPORTATION:

  • Players must not ride on any form of transportation during a stipulated round unless authorized by the Committee. Unauthorized Transportation will result in a two-stroke penalty. Only a committee member may shuttle a player back to and from where an original ball was played.
    • In the event a player receives a medical exemption to drive a cart during the round, he/she will receive approval from the Tournament Director on site and that player will then be approved to drive a cart during play. 




SEAMS OF CUT TURF (Newly Sodded Areas): 
If a player’s ball lies in or touches a seam of cut turf or a seam interferes with the player’s area of intended swing: 
• Ball in General Area: The player may drop a ball under Rule 16.1b. 
• Ball on Putting Green: The player may place a ball under Rule 16.1d Interference does not exist if the seam only interferes with the player’s stance. 

OBSTRUCTIONS AND INTEGRAL OBJECTS: 
• When located within the penalty area; liners in bunkers and artificial walls and pilings are integral objects unless otherwise provided for in Notice to Players. 
• White lined areas tying into obstructions are part of the obstruction. 
• When closely attached to trees; wrappings, electrical wire, and cables are integral objects. 

LOOSE IMPEDIMENTS: 
Wood chips and mulch are loose impediments. 

PRACTICE: 
Players are no longer allowed to practice putt between holes, even if they aren’t holding up play. Players will receive one warning before potential penalties and disqualification.

Code of Conduct

The Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship (JGNC) prides itself in the quality of players, host facilities and community involvement of each of its events. In order to continue making our events enjoyable for everyone, the JGNC will not tolerate any behavior that is unbecoming of a junior golfer. Players in violation of the code of conduct with the JGNC may lose playing privileges as well as being liable to penalty strokes or disqualification. 
 

All JGNC participants are reminded to respect the host facility and their staff/golf course. Players are expected to repair ball marks on the greens and divots where needed. Players are also expected to rake all bunkers and care for the course throughout their tournament experience. 
 

Violations of the Code of Conduct include:

    • The JGNC reserves the right to suspend or revoke a player’s registration for a major breach of the JGNC Code of Conduct.

Caddie Policy

The JGNC will allow caddies for the Boys 13U and Girls 13U Divisions throughout ALL Events. Caddies are optional for all events for these two divisions and players must declare a caddie prior to the start of their round.

Purpose of caddies: Caddies may carry a player’s clubs, give advice, and other help during the round but there are limits to what the Caddie is allowed to do. The player is responsible for the Caddie’s actions during the round and the player may incur a penalty if he/she breaches the Rules.
 

  • Caddies will be allowed to transport the player’s clubs and equipment.

  • Caddies will be allowed to search for a player’s golf ball.

  • Caddies will be allowed to clean a player’s golf ball.

  • Caddies will be able to give players advice.

  • Caddies will be allowed to use motorized carts (depending on host course cart availability)

  • Caddies will be allowed to transport a player only when shuttle holes have been designated on the Notice to Competitors, during evacuation/restart or back to a previous spot in order of play in accordance with Rule 20-5 and then back to where the player was picked up. Penalty for breach of unauthorized transportation is: Two strokes for each hole at which the breach occurred; maximum penalty per round is four strokes.

Once the player’s tees off on his or her first hole the player may not gain a Caddie during the round. A Caddie must be designated prior to the first tee shot. 

  • Players are not allowed to switch caddies during the play of a round.

Caddies ARE NOT ALLOWED TO:

  • Deliberately stand on or close to the extended line of play behind a player while the player is taking his or her stance and until the stroke is made.

  • Use personal cell phones during the round unless for an emergency

Players will not be able to ride in the motorized cart at any point during the round. Caddies may use the motorized cart to transport themselves and the player’s equipment only. If the player is in breach of this rule they will be subject to a 2 stroke penalty for unauthorized transportation. 

This policy is in effect as of January 1, 2021. The JGNC has the authority to eliminate or modify this policy at any time.

 

Breach of Policies and/or rules by Caddies:

1st Offense= Official Warning from a JGNC official

2nd Offense= Caddie will be removed from the golf course

Spectator Policy

With the exception of caddies, all spectators need to stay out of the fairways and off of greens and tees during play. It is ok to gather near tee and greens to watch, but we ask that they stay on the cart paths or rough while walking the course.

Spectators may not interact with participants at any time on the golf course, except in the case of an emergency. Any conversation between a spectator and participant will be subject to penalty under Rule 10.2 (Advice).

  • Only exceptions allowing spectators to interact with players during a round include handing them sunscreen, food, beverage, or any health emergency.  This should always be done in front of another spectator or tournament official.

 

Spectators are not allowed to give a player a ride under any circumstances during the player’s round. This includes driving players back for lost balls or from green to tee. The JGNC staff will select shuttle holes prior to the start of the tournament. The only time a spectator can shuttle is at an authorized shuttle hole. Any time a player takes a ride from a spectator that is unauthorized, he/she will incur a 2 stroke penalty. In the event of a course evacuation for inclement weather, spectators can shuttle players to safety. 

Spectators will be subject to removal from the golf course for the following breaches of etiquette:    

  • Repeat offenses of interacting with players after being warned by Tournament Committee

  • Rude, vulgar or other inappropriate comments or gestures.

  • Verbal or physical harassment of players, volunteers, officials or fellow spectators.

  • Distracting a player or causing any disruption of play.

  • Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, unsafe or illegal in nature.

  • Failing to follow the instructions of a JGNC Tournament Committee official, volunteer or host personnel.
