Tournament Rules

Code of Conduct

All tournament participants will be expected to abide by the AJGA Code of Conduct. Violations of the Code of Conduct will be dealt with based on the severity of the misconduct. Use of tobacco products is prohibited.  The AJGA’s Code of Conduct is as follows:

3. Use or association with drugs, alcohol, or smoking or chewing tobacco products
4. Vandalism at the host hotel, abusive behavior to host family or property
5. Conduct not becoming of an HVJI player, such as acting in anger or creating other distractions
6. Failure to treat host golf course with respect by ignoring the responsibility of caring for the course, filling divots and fixing ball marks
7. Physical abuse, threat of physical abuse, verbal abuse, slander or libel towards other players, parents, coaches, sponsors, host golf course staff or members, HVJI staff or volunteers in any medium

Dress Code

Dress Code Guidelines

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 HVJI 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 HVJI function takes place at a resort, all attendees must be in golf attire if they plan on using the practice facilities.
