Honor the game. Here's a few guidelines to help to know how.
Expectations of Front 9 Tour 10 - 12 & 13 - 18 Division Members:

Play 18 holes in 4.5 hours or 9 holes in 2 hours 15 minutes.

Dress Code All Divisions:
In accordance with the dress code of the hosting facilities, please follow these guidelines.
All shirts must have collars and be tucked in. Girls may wear golf type shirts. T-Shirts and tank tops are not acceptable.
All shorts must be golf type shorts and Bermuda length. Tennis shorts and short shorts are not acceptable.
Blue jeans and denim shorts are not acceptable.
All hats and visors must be worn properly.
Males are not permitted to wear earrings of any kind.
Caddies / Carts:
Caddies are not allowed for 10 to 12 and 13 to 18 Divisions.
(Exceptions to this rule are the Summer Tour championship, Hayden Hough Junior Memorial, and Fall Tournament series)
Caddies are allowed at all 7 to 9 Division events.
Pull Carts are allowed for all Ages Divisions.
Under some circumstances, the Front 9 Tour may arrange or allow for shuttle carts to be utilized.
It is the Players responsibility to keep up with the following:
Schedule of Events
His/Her tee time and correct tee.
Correctness of points accumulated (contact the Front 9 Tour officials of any discrepancies).
The players score for which they are keeping. It is also the players responsibility to show up to the tee in plenty of time to receive their scorecards, rules sheet, and any additional instructions from the starter. Arriving 10 minutes before the check in time is a good practice to follow.
Cheating is strictly prohibited. All cases of cheating will be dealt with in a very serious manner. If incidents of cheating are not reported, not only the player accused, but the player(s) who failed to report the incident will be in violation. If you are suspected of cheating, measures will be taken to monitor your score during subsequent Front 9 Tour events. A cheating violation may result in immediate disqualification from the event and the Front 9 Tour without a refund.
If weather threatens to be a factor to a tournament, please contact the site where the tournament is being held. They will likely be the determining factor in playing conditions. You may also contact Mike Johnson or Tournament Director but, again, the Pro at the course will be the one to make the final decision. In the event that weather threatens during tournament play, we will follow the standard rules of golf by sounding a siren, having players either play out their current hole or mark their balls and seek shelter immediately. The safety of our players is of utmost importance to us.
