All players are expected to play in the spirit of the game by:

  • Acting with integrity – for example, by following the rules, applying all penalties, and being honest in all aspects of play.
  • Showing consideration for others – for example, by playing at a prompt pace, looking out for the safety of others, keeping your cell phone on silent, not playing music or using earbuds or headphones during a round and not distracting the play of another player.
  • Taking good care of the course – for example, by replacing divots, smoothing bunkers, repairing ball marks, and not causing unnecessary damage to the course.
  • Not using vulgar or otherwise offensive language.
  • Wearing proper attire. No short-shorts or tank tops.

Violation of the Standards of Player Conduct may lead to reprimands, suspension and/or expulsion from JWGA. Disciplinary Committee consists of the Vice President, Majors Chair and Playday Chair.  See USGA Rule 1.2 – Standards of Player Conduct.


JWGA members are reminded that when a club graciously agrees to host one of our playdays, it not only inconveniences its members, but also incurs a somewhat modest expense in staffing the Club facilities so that our players can be serviced properly and extended full hospitality.

Courtesy suggests that players be mindful of the services the Club has gone out of its way to provide on their behalf. Specifically, players are asked to:

  • Eat lunch at the Club. Anticipating your needs, the Club has prepared food and scheduled its staff for your pleasure and convenience.
  • Support the Pro Shop. Again this facility has been staffed to provide conveniences for the day.
  • Tip for any extra service.

So we will continue to be welcome…

  • Follow the Club’s instructions for driving carts and take special heed not to drive near the green or on the tees.
  • Remember: we are guests. Be gracious and express your appreciation. If you have complaints, don’t pour them out to the staff – rather alert the Golf Committee, who will try their best to rectify the situation.
