Rules of Play

The USGA Rules of Golf will govern all CHJT events. Members will receive a complimentary copy of the USGA Rules of Golf as part of the membership packet. Please familiarize yourselves with the Rules and carry the Rules book in your golf bag at all times. Rules violations will be determined by the Tour Director and handled as prescribed by the USGA Rules of Golf and PGA of America.

Handheld Yardage Devices are allowed for use in 2018 CHJT Events.

Player Conduct

Any conduct deemed detrimental to the CHJT will not be tolerated. “Detrimental behavior” includes:

Cheating, vulgar or abusive behavior, swearing, club throwing, damage to the golf course, damage to a player’s belongings, possession of alcohol or tobacco products, gambling, walking off the course, and not turning in a scorecard.

Failure to comply will warrant a warning, two stroke penalty, or disqualification, dependent on the severity of the violation. Multiple or severe violations will result in dismissal from the CHJT with NO REFUND.

Pace of Play

A group is considered out of position if it:

  1. Falls one hole behind
  2. Is taking more than the allotted time per hole to complete. (Par 3- 9 minutes, Par 4-12 minutes, Par 5- 18 minutes)

*Any group that fails to keep its position on the course will be alerted to the fact and requested to play at a faster pace.

The Tour Committee deems a breach of this rule as follows:

  • First offense - Warning
  • Second offense – One Stroke
  • For subsequent offenses - Disqualification.

Dress Code

Proper dress is required at all CHJT events. Boys’ collared shirts or mock turtlenecks must be worn and tucked in at all times. Girls’ shirts without a collar must have sleeves and fashion shirts worn untucked must NOT rise above the belt line at any time during the golf swing. Girls’ shorts MUST be of mid-thigh length. All hats or visors must be worn with the bill to the front. No denim pants/shorts or cut-offs, or golf shoes with metal spikes are permitted.

Inclement weather policy

In order to protect players and spectators, the CHJT requires all players to stop play immediately and seek shelter due to inclement weather such as hearing thunder or seeing lightning or receiving notification by Tour Staff.

NOTE: Cog Hill does not offer a lightning detection device.

When play is suspended by the Tour Director for a dangerous situation and you are between holes, play shall not restart until the Tour Staff has ordered a resumption of play. If in the process of playing a hole, mark your golf balls (if nearby) and do not resume play until given clearance by the Tour Staff. Failure to abide by these rules will result in DISQUALIFICATION.

The Tour Director has the right to reduce the number of holes in an event due to inclement weather. Any 18 hole event will be considered complete if the entire field has completed 9 holes of play. In the event of a total rainout, the event fees will be rolled over to another event or refunded at the end of the season.


Spectators are welcome and encouraged to attend all events, but:

  • MUST stay in the rough or on the cart paths at least 25 yards from the players, and ahead or equal to group.
  • MAY carry water, umbrellas, jackets, towels, and food for the players.
  • MAY rent motor carts from the golf shop for a fee of $16 (must be 18 years or older).
  • MAY NOT give advice or carry on conversations with the players, which could be construed as ADVICE and players may be penalized for this.

Practice Rounds

Practice rounds must be arranged with Cog Hill prior to the event and are NOT INCLUDED in the entry fees. All practice rounds are at the player’s expense. Cog Hill does offer discounted junior green fees.
