Youth Safety

 

The Nebraska Junior Golf Tour puts the safety and well-being of our young athletes first and foremost. Every event you send your golfer to will have an NJGT Site Director or NJGT Staff Member. All Site Directors & Staff have passed the PGA Youth Safety Program and will be wearing these credentials and lanyards along with NJGT apparel. Please teach your young athletes to look for adults with these credentials with questions, concerns or for assistance.

 

NJGT Spectator Policies

 

The Nebraska Junior Golf Tour loves and encourages spectators! However, to ensure safety and an enjoyable experience for all, we require all spectators to follow set guidelines. Each spectator attends an NJGT event at their own risk. These guidelines should be followed throughout the entire tournament and will be enforced for the welfare of all in attendance:

  • Stay even or in front of the group you are following
    • Staying behind the group doesn't allow the golfers behind to play up and puts you at risk of getting hit by the group behind
    • Staying ahead of the group can help pace of play as you aid in golf ball searches
    • Observe golf from the rough (not fairways and greens)
  • Caddies are not allowed during NJGT stroke play events
    • At no time during the event shall advice be given to a competitor during a tournament round under Rule 8 of the USGA/R&A Rules of Golf
    • Encouragement well received!
    • Spectators can carry medicine, umbrellas, jackets, water, towels and food for the young athletes
      • Can not carry golf bag
  • Spectators must wear appropriate attire. Please be aware of and adhere to the host facility's dress code
  • Please turn all cell phones to silent or vibrate and take all calls in an area that will not disturb the athletes
  • If you would like to rent a golf car you may do so if they are available at the golf course
    • Rates typically $10 for 9-holes & $15 for 18-holes but may vary by facility
