If a player turns 19 before the 2022 National Championship OR is attending college, they will NOT be allowed to compete.  

Hard Card

The current Rules of the United States Golf Association and the R&A govern all play in NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship. 

RULE 20.1 c(3): 
The NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship strongly urges its players to play 2 balls if they are not sure how to proceed with a ruling as a rules official is not always present. In addition to playing 2 balls, players are also asked to play a provisional ball when he or she thinks it could be lost (this is even more important now that the search time has been shortened to 3 minutes). 

MEASURING DEVICES: 
Measuring Devices will be permitted in NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship however, they cannot measure anything other than true yardage (ie, slope or wind). 
• When the local rule is in effect, a distance-measuring application may be used, provided the specific application is restricted to “distance only” and the device does not have any other “non-conforming” features. This is the case even if these other features are not being used.

ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION DEVICES: Multi-functional devices such as mobile phones, PDAs, etc (i.e., devices that are primarily communication devices, but which may have other potential uses) may be used as follows:

    • The device may be used for any non-golfing purpose (e.g., as a communication tool to phone, text or email), subject to any club/course regulations and the rules on accessing advice-related matters – see Decision 14-3/16. 
    • When the local rule is in effect, a distance-measuring application may be used, provided the specific application is restricted to “distance only” and the device does not have any other “non-conforming” features. This is the case even if these other features are not being used. As above, the rules on advice-related communications (including the use of the internet) still apply.

WEATHER: 
A player has the right to suspend play if he feels threatened by dangerous lightning conditions without penalty. If NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship Staff or host club should indicate suspension of play all players should mark their balls, cease playing immediately and seek shelter. 

Discontinue Play Immediately: One prolonged siren or air horn blast. 
Discontinue Play for non-dangerous situation: Three consecutive short siren or air horn blasts. 
Resume Play: Two short siren or air horn blasts.

All NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship participants are reminded to respect the host facility and their staff/golf course. Players are expected to repair ball marks on the greens and divots where needed. Players are also expected to rake all bunkers and care for the course throughout their tournament experience. 

Violations of the Code of Conduct include: 

  • Unsportsmanlike conduct which includes: abusive language, cheating, club throwing, disrespect to volunteers/staff/officials or fellow competitors, and abuse of golf course property.

    • Issue a one stroke penalty for each act of unsportsmanlike conduct on the golf course 

    • Immediate disqualification from the tournament at which the violation occurs 

    • Depending on the severity of the violation, a tournament disqualification may also result in disqualification from the next tournament or tournaments for which a player has been accepted. 

    • The NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship reserves the right to suspend or revoke a player’s registration for a major breach of the NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship Code of Conduct.

Caddie Policy

The NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship will allow caddies for the Boys 10-11 & 12-13 and Girls 10-11 & 12-13 Divisions. CADDIES for the 10-11 age group are MANDATORY while caddies for the 12-13 age group are optional.  

All caddies must check in before the start of play for the 1st & 2nd rounds to receive a bracelet identifying them as the caddie for that day. If the caddie is the same they should hang on to their bracelet but still need to check in both days.Players must declare a caddie prior to the start of their round.

Purpose of caddies: Caddies may carry a player’s clubs, give advice, and other help during the round but there are limits to what the Caddie is allowed to do. The player is responsible for the Caddie’s actions during the round and the player may incur a penalty if he/she breaches the Rules.

  • Caddies will be allowed to transport the player’s clubs and equipment.
  • Caddies will be allowed to search for a player’s golf ball.

Spectator Policy

With the exception of caddies, all spectators need to stay out of the fairways and off of greens and tees during play. It is ok to gather near tee and greens to watch, but we ask that they stay on the cart paths or rough while walking the course.

Spectator carts will be available, please call the Santa Ana GC (505-867-9464) to make sure there is availability. All Santa Ana GC golf cart rules need to be followed, no questions!

Spectators may not interact with participants at any time on the golf course, except in the case of an emergency. Any conversation between a spectator and participant will be subject to penalty under Rule 10.2 (Advice).

  • Only exceptions allowing spectators to interact with players during a round include handing them sunscreen, food, beverage, or any health emergency.  This should always be done in front of another spectator or tournament official.

Spectators are not allowed to give a player a ride under any circumstances during the player’s round. This includes driving players back for lost balls or from green to tee. The NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship staff will select shuttle holes prior to the start of the tournament. The only time a spectator can shuttle is at an authorized shuttle hole. Any time a player takes a ride from a spectator that is unauthorized, he/she will incur a 2 stroke penalty. In the event of a course evacuation for inclement weather, spectators can shuttle players to safety. 

Spectators will be subject to removal from the golf course for the following breaches of etiquette:    

  • Repeat offenses of interacting with players after being warned by the NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship Committee

  • Rude, vulgar or other inappropriate comments or gestures.

  • Verbal or physical harassment of players, volunteers, officials or fellow spectators.

  • Distracting a player or causing any disruption of play.

  • Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, unsafe or illegal in nature.

  • Failing to follow the instructions of a NB3 Foundation Native Youth Golf Championship staff, volunteer or host personnel.
