Registration and Withdrawal Policy
Registration is open to all junior golfers, age 8-18. The calendar year annual player registration fee is $70 and must be paid before a player can enter for an event, or it may be submitted with the first event entry fee.
A player will be considered registered for an event if they complete online registration and pay online, or we receive a completed entry form and payment before the entry deadline. Siblings entered in the same event will receive one $10 tour credit posted to the their parent master account. Credits must be used in the calendar year they were accrued, they will not be refunded or carried forward.
The cutoff for each event is generally the Monday before the event. Late entries may be accepted until Thursday evening at 6 p.m. and will incur a $10 late entry fee. Early registration is encouraged to allow for easier event planning and to ensure entry. Fields for events that are held before or after Daylight Savings Time may be limited to allow all players to finish their rounds before darkness hits!
To reward players who play with us a lot and to help to defray the cost of their tournament play, we offer a Loyalty Credit as part of our 10 year celebration! For every 5 events played, a players account will be credited $20 for a 9 hole player, or $30 for a 18 hole player. Events for which payment is made to another organization, like the Rocky Bayou Junior Classic, or the Daily News Junior Classic, are excluded from counting towards the six events for a loyalty credit. Last year we had 21 players receive at least one loyalty credit!!
Players withdrawing from an event must communicate the withdrawal – preferably via email - to the Tour Director or Tour Administrator before the Monday registration deadline, which is also considered the cancellation deadline for that event. All requests submitted before the entry deadline will receive an account credit of the entry fee minus a $15 processing fee. As the tour needs to finalize its commitments with the host course at the registration deadline, no account credits will be issued if a participant withdraws from an event after the registration/cancellation deadline referenced above.
Once play has begun and a player withdraws for any reason other than acute illness, injury, or family emergency, the player will be suspended from playing the next event. If the player repeats this code violation, they may be suspended from competing in ECJGT events for the remainder of the season, at the sole discretion of the tour directors.
Event Cancellation Policy
If an event needs to be cancelled (e. g. weather or the minimum of 20 players is not reached), every attempt will be made to play the event at a later date. At the sole discretion of the Tour, event fees may either be used to play in the rescheduled event, or carried forward to play in another ECJGT event during the same calendar year. If a refund is requested, or an event cannot be rescheduled, a $15 processing fee will be assessed.
We encourage our players to stay for the awards ceremony immediately following the tournament to celebrate their achievements. However, any player who is not present will not receive the award.
