College Golf Info
High school golfers may compete in SAJGA, JGAA or any other organization's tournaments during the high school golf season as long as they do not use any high school owned equipment (like a high school golf bag) during these "outside" tournaments. The student-athletes may use high school team logo equipment (bag, shirt, etc.) that they own without restriction.
Coaches, Teaching your team golf rules is always difficult as it takes away from other practice time.
Outsource that to the SAJGA. Have your kids review the golf rules here and then take our rules test. If you
email us your kids names, we will email you to keep informed on their progress. Kids need to join the
SAJGA (free email only membership will suffice) for usto be able to track their testing progress.

2013/2014 Major Golf Rule Changes (per Dean Visser)
1) Target score formula has changed for Division I and II Boys (*SAJGA comment* both individual targets decreased by one shot (2 to 1 for DI and 4 to 3 for DII. No change for teams.)
2) Division Schools shall not exceed five (5) invitationals. An invitational shall count as one match. 22.214.171.124 (*SAJGA comment*There is no longer a limit of one 36-hole invitational)
3) A match is either nine (9) or eighteen (18) holes. An 18 holes match will count as two qualifiers and two matches.
