Number of Qualifying Spots Available

Qualifying spots:

 

We guarantee you that no matter what division your player is in when they sign up, that there will be at least one spot per division that will be awarded to move on to the next stage of qualifying. We also know that four (4) spots will be the maximum amount awarded to a division.

 

Divisions will be capped, and your chance of qualifying will go up. During the first week of January, we will finalize all the spots awarded by division for the 36-hole, 2-day Regional tournament stage of qualifying.

 

We anticipate a field of approximately 145 boys and a maximum of 145 girls at our championships.

Practice Round Information

Practice Round Information will be posted here shortly! 

Age Divisions
  • Competing Age Divisions: 

    • Girls 16-18
    • Girls 14-15
    • Girls 12-13
    • Girls 10-11

     

    A player’s age division is determined by their age on May 1st. For example, if a player turns 14 in July of 2023, they will compete in the 12-13 Division throughout the entirety of the Series even though they may be 14 during a Local or Regional Qualifier. If a player turns 14 before May 1st of 2023, then the player will compete in the 14-15 Division throughout the entirety of the Series. If your birthdate falls on May 1st and you turn 14, you will play in the 14-15 division (This age cutoff applies for all Divisions). 

     

    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, 2023. 

     

    If a player turns 19 before the 2023 National Championship OR is attending college, they will NOT be allowed to compete.

2023 Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship Local Rules and Conditions and Terms of the Competition

 

The 2023 USGA and R&A Rules of Golf govern play. See NB3JGNC Notice to Players for additional Local Rules and Conditions. Complete text of Rules and Section 8 (Model Local Rules) may be found in the Rules of Golf effective January 2023. Unless otherwise noted, the General Penalty for breach of a local rule or condition in Stroke Play is Two Strokes, while in Match Play is Loss of Hole. Exception: NB3JGNC misconduct, Section 6C or a serious breach of the Code of Conduct, Rule 1.2; the Committee will determine the penalty in such instances.

 

LOCAL RULES – All of the following are in effect unless otherwise addressed in the Notice to Players

 

OUT OF BOUNDS – Defined by the course-side edges at ground level of boundary walls, perimeter fence posts, public-roads, and white stakes and lines connecting other boundary markings. A ball that comes to rest beyond the boundary of the hole being played e.g. by crossing a public road is out of bounds, even though it may lie on another part of the course.

PENALTY AREA STAKES AND LINES (RED AND YELLOW) – When a penalty area is defined on only one side, it extends to infinity. When a penalty area is connected to the out-of-bounds edge, the penalty area extends to and coincides with out of bounds.

GROUND UNDER REPAIR - Includes areas enclosed by white lines.

DAMAGED CLUBS- MLR G-9 is in effect, restricting R4.1a(2) on repair and replacement of clubs to those that are only broken or significantly damaged and not solely because they are cracked.

ANIMAL HOLES – MLR F-6 is in effect such that there is no interference for stance in non-turfed areas.

SEAMS OF CUT TURF (SOD SEAMS) – MLR F-7 is in effect with no relief for stance per MLR F-6.

TURF PLUGS/AERATION HOLES – MLR E-4 is in effect for balls in the General Area only.

IMMOVABLE OBSTRUCTIONS CLOSE TO PUTTING GREENS – MLR F-5 is in effect without restriction

WHITE-LINED AREAS TYING INTO ARTIFICIALLY-SURFACED ROADS AND PATHS – Obstructions that are adjacent to roads or paths e.g. prepared rock that is placed for a functional purpose is considered part of the same obstruction with relief under Rule 16.1.

WOOD CHIPS AND MULCH – These are loose impediments.

INTEGRAL PARTS OF THE COURSE – Include cables, rods, wires, and wrappings when closely attached to trees, and artificial walls and pilings when located in penalty areas and bunkers.

 -4th missed checkpoint – Subject to disqualification

STOPPING AND RESUMING OF PLAY – Local Rule as prescribed in Section 8 of the Committee Procedures is in effect. Model Local Rule J-1. All practice areas are closed during suspension for a dangerous situation until the Committee has declared them open. Players who practice on closed practice areas will be asked to cease doing so; failure to comply may result in disqualification.

NOTE: An immediate suspension for a dangerous situation will be signaled by one prolonged airhorn note. All other types of suspension will be signaled by three consecutive airhorn notes. Resumption of play will be signaled by two short airhorn notes.

PRACTICE– Rule 5.5b is modified by MLR I-2 which is in effect and prohibits a player from making practice strokes or to test the surface of the putting green of the hole just completed or to test the surface of that putting green by rubbing the putting green or rolling a ball on or near the hole just completed.

SCORECARD RETURNED – A scorecard is returned when it has been attested by the player by signing the official card and/or on the scoring device when the player clicks “I attest and confirm my score” and has signed the official scoring document in the scoring area.

In addition, MLR L-1 is in effect and modifies Rule 3.3b(2) so that a player who returns a scorecard without the hole scores being certified by the player, the marker or both gets the general penalty.

WHEN COMPETITION IS FINAL – The competition is final when the trophy has been presented to the winner or, in the absence of a prize ceremony, when all scores have been approved by the Committee.

Breach of Policies and/or rules by Caddies:

1st Offense= Official Warning from a NB3 JGNC official

2nd Offense= Subject to 1-stroke Penalty

3rd Offense= Subject to 2-Stroke penalty for each prohibited action and/or Removal from the Golf Course

 

 

Gaining a Caddie During the Round or Switching Caddies During the Round: 

Once the player tees off on his or her first hole the player may not gain a Caddie or switch Caddies during the round (unless authorized by Tournament Officials). A Caddie must be designated prior to the first tee shot. First Offense will be a 1-stroke penalty and any additional breach will be a 2-stroke penalty per breach.

 

This policy is in effect as of January 1, 2023. The NB3 JGNC has the authority to eliminate or modify this policy at any time.

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.
