Players on the AJGO play in the division for their current age. So, a player who is 13, may play the Boys 13 & Under division until his 14th birthday. Upon turning 14, that player must move to the Boys 14-15 division. A player may choose to “move up” an Age Group if they prefer, such as, a Boys 13 & Under player can move up to the Boys 14-15 Age Group before they turn 14-years old. A player would generally move up an Age Group because they want to start playing longer yards during tournaments.

Yes and No. For two-day events, parents CAN caddie. In some events, parents will be required to use a golf cart in the interest of time. That requirement will be a case-by-case and communicated
on the day of event.

For 1-day tournaments, there will be no caddies or coaching allowed. Parents are required to always stay on the cart path and can offer only refreshment or medical attention to their junior player. Parents are not allowed to offer any “coaching” advice or help with club selection, scorekeeping, carrying the golf bag. etc. Our goal is for the player to learn how to play competitive tournament golf without any assistance. Violation of this rule of a 2-stroke penalty on the player.
