Optimist International Junior Golf Championships

Pull Carts, Caddies, Spectator Carts and Distance Measuring Devices



Pull Carts
Pull carts are permitted in ALL age divisions - Boys and Girls.

 

During the Optimist Junior Golf Championships, tournament administrators are faced with the task of coordinating play for up to 400 golfers on as many as four golf courses per day.

Optimist provide extensive transportation during the championships including shuttling golfers to and from the driving ranges, practice greens, van transportation for golfers and spectators involved in a shotgun start, and immediate course evacuations during dangerous weather situations. The logistics involved in transporting this many people are extremely challenging, even under the best circumstance. The priority is—and always will be— the safety of the golfers and spectators.

 

Caddies

Caddies are prohibited in all age divisions for all tournament rounds.  No exceptions.

Spectator Carts
Due to the size and scope of the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships, electric carts are strictly prohibited for spectators during tournament rounds. No exceptions. Spectators who need on-course transportation may utilize an electric mobility scooter.

Scooters are available from several local rental vendors. The rental fee for a scooter is the responsibility of the individual. Please contact Family Rentals at www.familyrentals.com or 561-279-9355 for a rental quote and to make a reservation. Family Rentals will deliver directly to PGA National.

Distance Measuring Devices
In this competition a player may obtain distance information by use of a distance-measuring device. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g. elevation changes, wind speed, etc.) the player is in breach of Rule 14-3 for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.
