AJGA Code of Conduct

The AJGA takes great pride in the quality of its players, host facilities and broad community involvement at each tournament. In order to continue making the AJGA experience enjoyable and rewarding for everyone, the Association requires all members to adhere to a set of guidelines known as the Code of Conduct. Its purpose is to help AJGA participants grow and mature by understanding and accepting the consequences of their actions. The Code of Conduct is to be followed throughout the junior’s membership.

VIOLATIONS OF CODE OF CONDUCT
Any of the following actions by an AJGA member at an AJGA event, non-AJGA event or toward another AJGA member anywhere, constitutes a violation of the AJGA 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
  • Vandalism at the host hotel, abusive behavior to host family or property
  • Conduct not becoming of an AJGA 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 fixing 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, AJGA staff or volunteers in any medium

REQUIRED DRESS AT THE GOLF COURSE:

  • Hats/visors must be worn with brim forward, males must remove hat/visor while indoors
  • Collared shirts or mock turtlenecks (host golf course permitting) must be worn and tucked in at all times
  • Women’s fashion shirts without a collar must have sleeves
  • Women’s fashion shirts must not rise above the belt line at anytime during the golf swing
  • Women’s shorts, skorts and skirts must be no more than 5” above the knee OR the inseam of the shorts must measure at least 5”

PROHIBITED DRESS AT THE GOLF COURSE:

  • Tank tops, T-shirts
  • Denim shorts, short-shorts, cut-off shorts, gym shorts, jeans
  • Earrings (males)
  • Body piercings
  • Tattoos (must be covered)
Proper attire is required at all times at the host golf course, including cookouts. Questionable attire will be reviewed by the Tournament Committee. Should a host golf course or resort have a stricter dress code, its policy will take precedence. Players in violation will not be allowed to tee off. With the exception of males always removing their hats/visors while indoors, the AJGA dress code is otherwise not in effect for functions taking place at the host hotel when the host hotel is not associated with the host golf course. When an AJGA function takes place at a resort, all attendees must be in golf attire if they plan on using the practice facilities.

PLAYERS REGISTRATION
If a player does not attend the Players Registration and Meeting, if applicable, without prior arrangements with the Tournament Director, the player may not receive his or her tournament gifts.

CODE OF CONDUCT VIOLATION PENALTIES
Any Code of Conduct violation will result in a written letter to the player and his or her parent/guardian. The AJGA Tournament Committee may assess any or all of the following penalties based on severity and frequency of the violation(s):

  • One-stroke penalty for each act of unsportsmanlike behavior on the golf course
  • Immediate disqualification from the tournament at which the violation occurs
  • Depending on the severity of the violation, a tournament disqualification may also result in disqualification from the next event(s) for which a player has been accepted
  • The AJGA reserves the right to suspend or revoke a player’s membership for a major breach of the AJGA Code of Conduct
  • Violation of the AJGA Code of Conduct may affect a player’s eligibility for Invitationals and post-season honors
AJGA members violating the AJGA Code of Conduct at non-AJGA championships are also subject to the penalties above based on severity.

SUSPENSION INFORMATION
In the event of a suspension, both the player and parent/guardian will be required to submit a written account of the Code of Conduct violation to the AJGA Chief Operations Officer within 30 days of the suspension. The AJGA Chief Operations Officer will determine the length of the suspension after reviewing all submitted materials, including an AJGA tournament staff account of the violation. Any player whose membership is under suspension will not be eligible for postseason honors. The Code of Conduct will be outlined by the AJGA staff at each tournament’s Players Registration, Players Meeting or during the Practice Round.
