Five FJT Standards

Competing at beautiful golf clubs is a privilege and it is important for all of our players and parents to place value on the following five duties:

  • Say "please" and "thank you" to the club staff and our volunteers
  • Rake bunkers
  • Fix ball marks
  • Step on/repair your divots
  • Throw away your garbage! There should never be trash on the ground anywhere on the course. Place trash in waste receptacles, golf carts or even your bag if no other place is available

Showing Appreciation & Proper Manners - At all courses where juniors play, they should show appreciation to the members and staff. To all of our junior players, let's show the clubs that you are not only the most talented golfers in the country, but also the most respectful. A "thank you" to the club and taking care of the course are the best ways to make a positive impression on the club, fellow players, coaches and spectators.
