Can I get into a tournament after the registration deadline?

In the event the field is not full 10 days before the 1st round, the HJGT may allow late addition players after the deadline. This is solely at the discretion of the HJGT staff and the HJGT reserves the right to add any player after the deadline. We highly encourage players to register as soon as they can. Majority of HJGT events in 2018 thus far have filled up before the deadline.

What is your pace of play policy?

HJGT Pace of Play Policy

 

Summary

When the first player in a group has begun play on their 1st hole all players in the group are deemed to be on the clock and subject to timing. Additional info:

  • All 18 holes on the golf course will be considered a checkpoint.
  • The HJGT will utilize a color-coded card system (Green cards and Red cards).
  • An HJGT staff member, inside the scoring area, will confirm penalties with groups.
  • It’s the players responsibility to know what color cards they receive throughout the round.
  • The 1st group of the day is measured against time par until they get into position with any group in front of them.

 

Timing Cards

 

Green Card– Your group is in position AND/OR under the allotted time through that checkpoint

 

Red Card– Your group is out of position AND over the allotted time par (BOTH conditions MUST be met).

  • 1st missed checkpoint – warning* (warning remains for duration of the round)
  • 2nd missed checkpoint – liable to a penalty of one stroke
  • 3rd missed checkpoint – liable to an additional penalty of two strokes
  • 4th missed checkpoint – liable to disqualification

*Once a group receives a red card, they will have 2 holes to get either back in position OR under time par. If after 2 holes the group is still out of position AND over time par the group is liable to receive another red card.

  • When the group is back in position OR under time par they will receive a green card.

*When a group falls behind- regardless of the reason it must regain its position. Time for ball searches, rulings and walking time between holes is included in all maximum allowable times

*The group will be liable to penalties if in the Committee’s view a reasonable effort was not made by the players to complete their round within the allotted time. Any penalties will be confirmed and issued in the scoring area. No conversation or issuing of penalties will take place on the course.

Definitions

 

Overall time par: is the allotted time expected that all groups will complete a round based on golf course and weather conditions, setup, forced walks and quality of field.

  • A player is allowed 40 seconds to play a shot. A competitor’s time begins when the competitor has had a reasonable opportunity to reach his or her ball, can do so without interference or distraction. Play ready golf.
  • In position times are measured from “Flagstick to Flagstick”. Your group time begins when the group in front of you replaces their flagstick and ends when your group replaces the flagstick.

 

Out of Position: When the group falls more than 15 minutes behind the group in front of them (flagstick to flagstick time).

 

The HJGT encourages ready golf and strives for rounds under 4-hours and 30-minutes.
