Frequently Asked Junior Golf Questions
Q: Can I change divisions?
A: Yes, you may switch divisions once during the season if you feel your current division is not correct for your current skill level, whether the division is not challenging enough or too easy. Points will then be reset.
Q: Will golf carts be available for spectators?
A: Spectator carts will be allowed as long as the host facility allows them.
Q: As a parent, am I able to advise my child during play?
A : No. “Advice” is any counsel or suggestion which could influence the player in determining his/her play, the choice of club, or the method of making a stroke. Giving advice is a breach of USGA Rules.
Q: If an event is cancelled, will I be entered into another event?
A: Each situation will be decided on an individual basis. Your placement into an alternate event will be on a space-available basis.
Q : If I withdraw from a tournament after the deadline do I receive a refund?
A: No. However, it may be possible to enter you into a different event on a space-available basis. Refund requests due to medical reasons or other extenuating circumstances will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Q: Where and when can I find out my tee time?
A : Tee times will be posted on the website and emailed to participants approximately 5 days prior to each event.
Q: Which events count towards the Tour Championship/POY?
A : Only summer Junior Tour events count towards POY points.
Q: In the Championship Division, do the 36 hole events count for more POY points than the 18 hole events?
A: Each summer Junior Tour event, regardless if it is 18 or 36 holes, uses the same points structure outlined on page 8. Therefore, there the 36 hole events do not have additional points associated with them.
Q : In what events may a player have a caddie, and who may caddie for them?
A: Players may have anyone that has passed the caddie quiz caddie for them in 9 hole events (Mini Mulligans & Intro Tour). In non-Junior Tour events (such as the Cherry Blossom) players may have a caddie as long as that caddie is 18 or younger. Players may not have a caddie in 18 or 36 hole junior tour events.
