RDGA Code of Conduct

The RDGA and its member clubs believe that participation in RDGA amateur events is a privilege that includes responsibilities. Contestants must be amateurs and members in good standing at a RDGA club. They must adhere to all RDGA tournament requirements including Handicap Index®, age, gender (for selected events), appropriate golf attire, mandatory use of riding carts at selected events, and local host club rules that will apply to players during a competition.

USGA Rules will govern all play in RDGA events including Local Rules noted on the Notice to Players at each competition. All players should familiarize themselves with Section I. Etiquette: Behavior on the Course, in the current Rules of Golf book.

The spirit of the game relies on the integrity of each individual to show consideration for other players and abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, regardless of their competitive spirit. Understanding and adhering to accepted golf safety precautions, Pace of Play guidelines and care of the golf course are RDGA requirements for each player. The RDGA reserves the right to disqualify a player at any time before or during competition in an RDGA event for any breach of the requirements.
