To be eligible for the Spectator Cart Badge, the applicant must submit a copy of one of the following with the application to be eligible:

  • Department of Motor Vehicle Disable Person Placard Identification Card
  • Disable Insurance award letter
  • V.A Letter confirming a disability

A 5-day waiting period (from the date we receive the materials) is required to verify the documents and issue the official JGAA Spectator Cart Badge.

There will be a $15 charge for processing, materials and shipping of the badge. Any lost badges will have a $10 replacement fee. Violation of any of the policies printed on the Spectator Cart Badge will result in the immediate loss of privilege.

The following are the Rules and Guidelines for those approved for a Spectator Cart Badge:

The Spectator Cart Badge MUST BE present to have access to a cart an event that allows spectators. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Before checking-in with the golf shop to receive a golf cart, the Spectator Cart Badge holder must check-in with the JGAA Staff on site.

The privilege may only be used at courses that allow spectators on the course. Spectators are responsible for the courses cart fee. It will be at the discretion of the host facility if they will grant use of spectator carts.

The JGAA is not responsible for a course that chooses not to allow any spectator carts on the course. Playing at each facility is a privilege, not a right, and all spectators shall abide by the rules of the facility.

Spectator carts should be operated in a safe manner, observing golf etiquette and without any unnecessary interference with play.

The individual whom the privilege was granted to is the ONLY individual who may be in the golf cart. If the individual who has the JGAA Spectator Cart Badge is unable to physically drive the golf cart, he or she must notify the JGAA office as least one week before the event to request an additional badge for a driver to use during the event.

If at any time a player, or another spectator that does not have his or her own spectator cart badge, is in the cart while in motion, the approved spectator will lose the Spectator Cart privileges for the remainder of the year, no exceptions.

The Rules printed on the back of the Spectator Cart Approved badge must be followed, in addition to the JGAA Spectator Policies. Failure to abide by these rules will result in immediate loss of priviledges.

Spectator Guidelines

Spectators/Parents, except those volunteers acting in an official capacity, are NOT allowed in the scoring area or in the registration area. When allowed on the course, spectators must wear a spectator badge; anyone refusing a badge will be removed from the course.
 

The Spectator Guidelines for JGAA events are as follows:

  • All spectators MUST be at least 7 years of age.
  • Spectators are asked to adhere to the JGAA dress code.
  • Spectators must remain on the cart path at all times or at least 30 yards away from the group if a cart path is not available.
  • Any verbal or non-verbal contact could be construed as giving advice (Rule 8). Conversations with players are not permitted.
  • Requests to use a golf cart while spectating must be submitted to the JGAA office at least two days prior to the event. Requests will be approved if warranted by physical or health reasons.
  • Use of cell phones or other electronic devices are prohibited when spectating.

Failure to abide by these rules may result in removal from the course.

Refunds for an event cancelled prior to commencement of play will be issued within three weeks, provided the event cannot be rescheduled.

No-Show Policy

The No-Show policy applies to all competitive rounds of each event, not just the first round. If you begin play on the first day and cannot play in the second or third round of an event, you MUST notify the JGAA Tournament Staff prior to your scheduled starting time for that round. Call the JGAA Tournament Director and leave a message at (602) 944-6168.
 

Sanctions for No-Show Infractions

First No-Show Offense

  • The player is disqualified from the next JGAA event for which the junior has previously entered (Invitational or open entry).
Second No-Show Offense

  • The player is disqualified from the next two JGAA events for which the junior has previously entered, and must assist the staff at a JGAA event prior to being allowed to play in another event in the 2013 season.
Third No-Show Offense

  • The player is disqualified for the remainder of the 2013 season, including any State JGAA Teams.
If a member is disqualified from an event(s) because of a No-Show offense, there will be a forfeiture of all applicable entry fees.

Withdrawal Policy

To withdraw from an event, including an invitational, notice must be given to the JGAA Tournament Staff or Host Professional prior to the participant’s starting time. Withdrawals will be accepted via phone, email, on-line or at the host course. Withdrawing from an event will not affect future tournament play, although, failure to withdraw will be considered a No-Show (see separate “No Show Policy”). You will not automatically receive a refund (see “Refund Policy”).

Refund Policy

Refunds will be automatically credited to the players’ credit account. The credits can then be used to enter future JGAA events.

If a player would like their refund to be issued back to the credit card used for their original entry, they must contact the JGAA office to make this request.

All refund requests, online or other, must be in our office before the Closing/Deadline Date of the event. No refunds will be available after the Closing/Deadline Date.

The amount refunded will be the amount originally paid, minus a $5.00 per tournament handling fee. JGAA invitationals will have specific refund deadline dates assigned to each event.

When requesting a refund in writing, please include the members’s name, age, address and the name and date of the tournament.

On-Site Waiting List Policy

If you are still on the waiting list prior to the event, you may come to the tournament site the morning of the first round and be placed on a stand-by list. Please be advised that the stand-by list is formed on a first come – first serve basis. For example, if you were previously 20th on the waiting list, but you show up at the tournament site before anyone else on the waiting list, you will automatically be the first person on the stand-by list. You MUST have already been on the original tournament waiting list for this policy to apply. Members on the waiting list will automatically be placed on the stand-by list above members who simply decide to play the day of the event.

Parents Code of Conduct

The JGAA has numerous spectator events and encourages parents to come and watch their children play. When you come to watch your son or daughter play in an JGAA tournament, you should keep in mind that the competition is between him or her and the rest of the field. You should never involve yourself with the players in any way that could be considered unethical or impolite. As such, please observe the following regulations:

  • Minimize all contact between yourself and the players, including your own child. If you wish to hand your child a drink or some other item they might need, feel free to do so, but keep all conversations brief and make sure you are not giving any advice to your child. Any parent who gives advice will be immediately asked to leave the course and your actions could result in a penalty being assessed to your child.
  • In general keep a reasonable distance from the players. Do NOT walk down the fairway with them.
  • Do NOT go on the greens or tees.
  • If you walk ahead of the group, do not position yourself in a manner that would give your child some information on how to play a shot.
  • If you walk with the group, keep to the side of play. Please do not walk down the fairway behind the group as it might hold up the group behind.
  • Be aware of other groups on the golf course at all times.
  • ALL cell phones are prohibited on the golf course.
  • Please help look for potentially lost balls. It can help speed up play and help the group avoid a pace of play penalty.

If you violate these policies one of our officials will speak with you and if the violation is serious enough, you might be asked to leave the course. Please enjoy your day on the course and do not cause your child embarrassment by your behavior.
