Kansas City Junior Golf Support Pledge

OVERVIEW The Kansas City Golf Association traces its roots back to 1902 when a need arose to identify the best golfer in Kansas City. Immediately, the inaugural Kansas City Match Play Championship was formed and now celebrates over 100 years of history. In 1912, as the number of facilities in Kansas City began to grow, the Kansas City Golf Association became a formal entity with the task of running regional events and providing services to its membership. Today, the Kansas City Golf Association and its affiliated Foundation, look to continue that original purpose with the support of its member clubs. The member clubs of the KCGA have expressed an interest in having a central source for interclub junior golf play. In order for the KCGA to shift the necessary resources in the junior golf arena to focus on more club/team based activities the KCGA is going to be forced to modify its junior programs extensively. The KCGA would like the clubs participating in this initiative to sign a pledge of support for this change. This pledge is not a contract, nor is it a legal document tying your facility to any obligation, but simply a pledge that your facility will support two core junior programs of the KCGA, the Kansas City Junior Tour and the Junior Kansas City Cup.

KANSAS CITY JUNIOR TOUR For over fifty years, the Kansas City Junior Tour has served as the primary competitive circuit for junior golfers in the region. The tour has served tens of thousands of young men and women over this time and has helped groom the area’s brightest stars for future success. The Kansas City Junior Tour features events for both genders and ages 4-18. The KC Junior Tour is often the first individual play tournament experience of an aspiring players life. With several hundred members, the KC Junior Tour serves as the competitive cornerstone of junior golf in Kansas City.

JUNIOR KANSAS CITY CUP After being approached by the member clubs of the Kansas City Golf Association, the KCGA will be adding junior team golf to its portfolio of member services. With multiple entities conducting interclub matches, it is the desire of the member clubs to see a consolidated series conducted with 3


centralized administration. The KCGA will fill that void with the introduction of the Junior Kansas City Cup. The mission of the Junior Kansas City Cup is to provide a series of junior golf competitions that promote camaraderie amongst Kansas City juniors and prepares juniors for future team competition.

CLUB SUPPORT PLEDGE The Kansas City Golf Association exists to provide solutions based on the collective need of its member clubs. The Junior Golf program will require the support of these member clubs in order to be successful. The ability of your facility to host junior golf programming will be paramount for the success of these initiatives. The KCGA and its member clubs are asking for you to commit to the following items to support these key programs:   

Host a KCGA Junior Programs Event (KC Junior Tour or Junior KC Cup) every other year based on the master hosting schedule. Commit to assisting with the Junior Kansas City Cup by submitting an employee and/or team captain to assist KCGA Staff with the administration each event. Promote the KCGA Junior Program within your club.

I, ___________________________________ representing __________________________________________ do acknowledge and support the Kansas City Junior Golf initiative and pledge the support of our club for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Our club has been assigned EVEN / ODD number years to host.

Junior Kansas City Cup Conditions of Competition Mission Statement: The mission of the Junior Kansas City Cup is to provide a series of junior golf competitions that promote camaraderie amongst Kansas City juniors and prepares juniors for future team competition. Administration and Decisions: The overall administration of the Junior Kansas City Cup shall be conducted by the Rules and Competitions Committee of the KCGA. Any situations that are not outlined in the USGA Rules of Golf or in the Conditions of Competition shall be resolved by the Rules and Competitions Committee of the KCGA. In all instances, its decision shall be final. Entry Conditions and Entry Fee: Each participating facility must complete the Kansas City Junior Golf Support Pledge and the Junior Kansas City Cup entry form. We are currently evaluating two possible fee structures for the Junior Kansas City Cup: Option 1 – Each participant pays a $100 fee to participate. (This payment would include a membership into the Kansas City Junior Golf Program which allows each participant to play in the Kansas City Junior Tour) This option puts the financial burden on the players only, which was a desire of several clubs. Option 2 – Each participant must join the Kansas City Junior Golf Program (currently $40 and allows each participant to play in the Kansas City Junior Tour ) and each club submits an entry fee of $500 which must be received by May 1st. This option allows the club to charge the players themselves and build additional fees into the entry for the benefit of the club. For example, a team is made up of 12 players of which the club charges each player $100 to participate in Junior Kansas City Cup. After paying the $500 entry fee the club would have $700 left over to pay for uniforms, and/or compensation to the professional or captain for administering the team. In both options, the participants must register through the KCGA website to be a member of the KC Junior Program. This is very important as it allows the KCGA to communicate directly with the players regarding suspensions, changes, Cup updates etc. The central signup will also force parents

5


and players to agree to disclaimer policies on Code of Conduct, Appearance and Liability. Finally, it allows the KCGA to cover these events under its blanket liability policy. Format of Play: Each team will be composed of six players in the following divisions. Teams may compete provided they have at least one player competing in each division. 2- players 15 yrs. & under

18 holes

2- players 13 yrs. & under

18 holes

2- players 11 – 9 yrs.

9 holes

  

Teams may compete provided they have at least one player competing in each division. Players may play in an older division at the captain’s discretion. Players may not play in a younger division.

Determination of Age: Players may compete in the age group based on their age on September 1. E.G. Player is 13 yrs. of age but turns 14 on July 15th. This player must play in the 15 yrs and under division throughout the season. Scoring: At each event, one score per division will count toward the team total. (See example below) Player One

Starting Times and Rotation: After entry fees from each team have been collected, the KCGA will submit a schedule of starting times for the season. The schedule is designed to maximize interaction between the participating facilities. Starting times for the season ending Junior Cup Finals will be based on team standings. Captain Responsibilities: Each team captain will have a designated responsibility assigned by the KCGA at each event. These responsibilities may include: assisting with transportation of players, starting, scorekeeping, assisting with hydration stations, collecting scorecards, and/or assisting with signage. Captain responsibilities will be made available to captains prior to each event at the registration table. The Note to Rule 8 (Advice in Team Competitions) will not be in effect for Junior Kansas City Cup competitions. Inclement Weather/Suspension of Play: In the event of inclement weather or a suspension of play, the KCGA Competitions Committee will make all decisions regarding restarting, rescheduling and/or cancellation of rounds played. With the number of clubs involved and the difficulty to secure a facility, if play is suspended or canceled, it is likely that event will be canceled and not replayed. In the event of a cancelation, including the finals, the overall standings of the Junior KC Cup will be based on previous points accumulated. Caddies: In an effort to promote the time honored tradition of caddies, a player may implement the use of a caddie during a competition round. Caddies must be under the age of 18 and must wear a KCGA bib. In regards to the Rules of Golf, players are responsible for the actions of their caddie. Spectator and Spectator Cart Policy: The KCGA encourages spectators and parents to attend KC Junior Tour events. Spectators are expected to conduct themselves appropriately at all times. The KCGA reserves the right to suspend and/or ban any spectator from one or more events. Failure to comply with the following regulations may result in the immediate removal from the host facility and/or suspension of playing privileges for the junior member. Spectators must check in at the registration table or first tee to receive a spectator badge. Spectators shall not give advice to players during the round. Spectators may carry a player’s umbrella or apparel, but no equipment. Spectators may help players search for golf balls. Rulings and/or reports of rules violations will not be accepted from spectators. Spectators must remain on the cart path and 25 yards away from players at all times, except: when searching for a golf ball in which case they are not allowed to hold a conversation with a player.

Spectator carts are allowed to be rented at the discretion of the host facility at a price determined solely by the host facility. The KCGA reserves the right to revoke a spectator’s privilege to use a cart. Spectator carts must stay on cartpath. Code of Conduct: The KCGA takes great pride in the quality of its programs, players, and host facilities. All members are expected to adhere to a Code of Conduct, which requires participants to grow and mature by understanding and accepting the consequences of their actions. Violations of the Code of Conduct include but are not limited to: abusive language, club throwing, cheating, disrespect of tournament officials or host facility staff, abuse of the golf course, including failure to repair divots and ball marks, and/or use of any type of tobacco products, drugs, or alcohol. Proper attire is part of the Code of Conduct, and required at all times. The following guidelines describe acceptable attire, unless stricter rules are required by a host facility.    

Blue jeans, designer jeans, t-shirts, and tank tops are prohibited Shorts must be mid-thigh length Golf shirts with a collar are required (except girls) and must be tucked in Hats must be worn with the bill forward Clothing referring to profanity, alcohol, tobacco, or sexual material is prohibited

The Golfer Development Committee will review all submitted materials, including a KCGA staff member’s account of the violation. All appeals must go through the appropriate channels to be considered.

12 Team Hosting Rotation Example By incorporating a few non-Junior KC Cup facilities into the hosting schedule, we can stretch the hosting requirements so that member clubs are required to host every other year in order to participate. In both of the hosting examples, the remaining sites on the Cup and Tour would be filled using non-Junior KC Cup facilities.
