Code of Conduct

This policy applies to all SNJG-administered competitions.

By submitting an entry for any SNJG-administered competition, the player understands that their participation is at the sole discretion of the SNJG. A player may be removed from any competition at the discretion of the SNJG staff or the rules and competitions committee at any time before or during the competition. Incidents of unbecoming conduct or actions deemed to be detrimental to the image of the SNJG or the spirit of the game are grounds for such removal and suspension from future SNJG administered competitions.

VIOLATIONS OF CODE OF CONDUCT

  • Any of the following actions by a Las Vegas Junior Golf Tour player at any LVJGT event or toward another LVJGT player, constitutes a violation of the Code of Conduct:
  • Unsportsmanlike conduct, including abusive language, cheating, club throwing, disrespect to volunteers, officials or fellow competitors, or abuse of golf course property
  • Not adhering to the dress code at the host golf course
  • Use or association with drugs, alcohol, or smoking or chewing tobacco products
  • Conduct not becoming of an LVJGT player, such as acting in anger or creating other distractions
  • Failure to treat host golf course with respect by ignoring the responsibility of caring for the course, filling divots and repairing ball marks
  • Physical abuse, threat of physical abuse, verbal abuse, slander or libel towards other players, parents, coaches, sponsors, host golf course staff or members, LVJGT staff or volunteers.

Suspension could also result from actions that are disruptive to other players or create an unfavorable image of the association. A player that performs an act considered to be unsportsmanlike conduct will have the incident reviewed by the Las Vegas Junior Golf Association Board of Directors to determine if further action including suspension is warranted.

Electronic Devices

Electronic Devices other than SNJG Approved “Distance Measuring” Devices are prohibited. GPS and Rangefinders that include other calculations such as slope are strictly prohibited. Prohibited devices include but are not limited to: cellular telephones, pagers, Ipods, MP3’s, CD Players, etc. If a player is caught using these devices during the course of play, the player will be disqualified from the event and may face further sanctions. Cellular telephones may only be used in emergency situations.

Spectator Policy

Parents/spectators will need to stay on cart paths. In the absence of cart paths, use the rough areas. Please stay off fairways, tees, and greens. Parents/spectators may not interact with participants and should remain at least 50 yards away from the competitors they are following. Parents/spectators should not interfere with any group advancing from behind, nor should they converse with any competitor.

Parents/spectators CAN do the following:

  • Walk on the cart path and watch your child play golf
  • Carry an umbrella, food, drink, medicine, etc… for your child. If the competitor needs any of the following these can be obtained BETWEEN play of holes, not during play.
  • Forecaddie and help your child and other players search for a golf ball

The following actions are UNACCEPTABLE from a parent/spectator:

  • Verbally abusing or belittling players for any reason
  • Yelling and/or cursing at players/officials/golf course staff
  • Hand signals/gestures (These are considered advice!)
  • Interfering with players/officials/golf course staff while in the scoring area
  • Giving rulings to juniors on the golf course (too often the information is incorrect)
  • Interfering with any player’s opportunity to compete fairly and fun while playing the game of golf

Allowing spectators is a privilege, one of which may be revoked when necessary

Outside Alcohol and/or Illegal Drugs

Under no circumstances are players allowed to bring outside alcohol or illegal drugs onto the property. If a player is caught with outside alcohol or illegal drugs the player will be disqualified from the event and asked to leave and may face further sanctions.
