Both team flags will be placed on tee #1.

COurse will handle scoring:  may also utlize the new Bay Point app to post unofficial scores.

Sheet Outlining Event Schedule and Format

PCB Visitors Guide

Coupon from Edwin Watts?  Capt. Anderson’s?  Angelo’s?

Sleeve of Logo Golf Balls + Tees

 

JPM has arranged to pickup visitor guide, has coupons form Dave & Busters, and is soliciting Capt Andersons and Edwin Watts.  Amy will solicit other vendors.

Amy has arranged for golf balls for players.  JPM will bring tee packets.

Player Shirts

Team shirts

Caddy bibs $35 (includes name on back, logo front)

Autograph Flags (two for players to sign for both organizations; option for players to buy flags in advance, too) http://www.heresfredgolf.com $19.00/Ea

Both teams are acquiring their own shirts.

SLICJGA is requiring players to purchase one shirt and have option to purchase different day two shirt or wear same shirt for day two.

Caddies

Does pro-shop have leads on caddies?  Parents and non-playing players can caddy.  Caddies not allowed on green unless in the 9-11 age?

 

Amy is going to check with local comunity college to see if they have interested caddies.  Maybe Amy can check with other courses/ clubs?

Although Ryan/ Adam expressed concern with parent caddies, it will be difficult/ unlikely for SLICJGA players to bring caddies and may oly have option of parents caddying.

JPM proposes strict gudelines for parents caddying, i.e. cannot engage in any rulings, cannot be on green, must limit conversation with other players to stricly social chit chat...

Player Rules Sheets

Outline of rules and tournament format

 

JPM sending rules sheet used in their events for AMy to add to or ammned.

Spectator Policy


Parents, relatives, friends, and other spectators are welcomed and encouraged to come out to the course to watch the competition.

 

Outline for Spectators

The following guidelines have been established to ensure a level playing field for all contestants.

Spectator carts may be permitted during tournament rounds (if available).

Spectators need to stay clear of the playing areas (tee boxes, fairways, greens) and should travel on the cart paths whenever possible.

When driving in carts, please be adhere to other players by ceasing to drive while others are preparing to hit.

Keep a proper distance from the players – a minimum of 25 yards is recommended.

Spectators cannot walk with players during tournament play or engage in conversation.

Spectators cannot give advice to any player. Talking to competitors during tournament rounds is not allowed, as it could be perceived as giving advice resulting in a two-stroke penalty on the player. (Please refer to USGA Rule 8-1 for definition).

Spectators are not to give rulings to competitors before, during, or after the tournament round – only Junior Golf Championships rules officials are authorized to give rulings to competitors.

Cellular phones, beepers, and other electronic devices are not permitted during play.

A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of the Championship staff immediately.  If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with the Championship’s Code of Conduct Policy.

 

AMy and JPM i agreement that we need to deliver guidelines of expectations or parents and spectators.
