Golfing knowledge and skill levels of participants
The EJ Justice Golf Event is an exciting opportunity for children, with some golf experience and understanding of the rules of golf, to take the next step and share in friendly golf competition and peer play. The rules of the game will be followed, however, will be modified to support young players and ensure the game remains fun, for example, players will pick up their balls at double par and move to the next hole.
There is an expectation that participants will have already learned the basics of the game and played a few rounds. Participants should be familiar with the basic rules, safety and etiquette guidelines of golf.
As well, this is not a sanctioned tournament and players capable of serious golf competition are encouraged to seek out skilled events to continue their golf development. This level of junior golfer does not align with the intention of The EJ Justice Golf Event.
If your child has not played on a golf course, is not comfortable playing golf by modified rules without direction, has a registered handicap OR plays in competitive golf tournaments, this event would not be appropriate.
