AJGA Cares for the Course

Caring for the course has always been a priority within the AJGA. In an attempt to revolutionize the way junior golfers take care of tournament courses, the AJGA now provides small, lightweight sand bottles to each player on the first tee. The goal of this initiative is to ensure that a course is constantly cared for throughout all tournament rounds. As participants make their way around the course, they are encouraged to use the sand bottles to fill their divots as they go. A sand refilling station is located at every hole. With this program, the AJGA aims to instill good habits that will impact a junior’s entire career.

The AJGA feels very strongly about this initiative and is excited about how it is teaching the next generation of golfers to do their part.

“The Cares for the Course program is so important because it allows the AJGA membership an opportunity to give back to the host venue,” Director of Tournament Operations Greg Sanfilippo said. “It is a great way for us to be able to educate our players on proper golf course etiquette while they do their part to maintain the integrity of the course.”

In addition to the sand bottles, the AJGA conducts Care for the Course parties after one of the tournament rounds. Since the course is being taken care of, these parties are able to focus on the driving range and practice facilities to keep them in the best condition possible.

Courses appreciate the attention to detail. Josh LePine, Superintendent at The Legend at Bristlecone, thinks the extra effort goes a long way.

“As in anything in life, you leave it better than you found it,” LePine said. “As a staff and as host members we greatly appreciate the Cares for the Course program as it improves the playability of the course for all.”
