RULES FOR ADVANCING:

BOYS DIVISIONS

Players returning for the upcoming season will begin play in the same division in which they finished playing in the previous season, except for players moving up in division because of their finish in the JGA Championship. The tournament committee will assign new members to a division. New members will not be assigned to Boys Championship. New members’ play will be monitored and division adjustments will be made by the Board of Directors accordingly.

The tournament winner, second place, and all second place ties will move up to the next division level. A playoff between players tied for 1st Place will be conducted to determine the first place winner. Ties for the second or third place trophy will be decided by a match of cards beginning with the last hole the division played, going back until a winner is determined.

Any player eligible to move up after the last weekly tournament of the season will have the option of staying in their current division for the JGA Championship or moving up. If they stay in their current division for the JGA Championship they will move up the following season to the division they obtained in the last weekly tournament of the season, regardless of their finish in the JGA Championship.

Players in the Boys Championship division must score 90 or below to remain in the Championship Division. All players must be competitive in their division to remain in that division. The Executive Director will make the decision on a player’s ability to remain in their current division.

PLAYERS REQUESTING TO REMAIN IN A DIVISION, OR THOSE MOVED BACK TO A LOWER DIVISION FOR ANY REASON, ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO WIN TROPHIES AND MUST WIN THEIR WAY BACK TO THE NEXT DIVISION LEVEL.

 

GIRLS DIVISIONS

Players returning for the upcoming season will begin play in the same division in which they finished playing in the previous season, except for players moving up in division because of their finish in the JGA Championship. The tournament committee will assign new members to a division. New members will not be assigned to Girls Championship. New members’ play will be monitored and division adjustments will be made by the Board of Directors accordingly.

A player must win in the same division two times before they can move up to the next division level. A playoff between players tied for 1st Place will be conducted to determine the first place winner. Ties for the second or third place trophy will be decided by a match of cards beginning with the last hole the division played, going back until a winner is determined. A player, who ties for first place but finishes second or third as the result of a playoff or match of cards, will be considered to have finished second or third for the purpose of moving up in division.

Any player eligible to move up after the last weekly tournament of the season will have the option of staying in their current division for the JGA Championship or moving up. If they stay in their current division for the JGA Championship they will move up next season to the division they obtained in the last weekly tournament of the season, regardless of their finish in the JGA Championship.

Players must shoot 99 or better to remain in the Girls Championship Division. All players must be competitive in their division to remain in that division. The Board of Directors will make the decision on a player’s ability to remain in their current division.
