The BRJGT is committed to
"Building Character and Sportsmanship through Golf."
All Tournament Fields are based on course availability at each individual Club. Three forms MUST be completed and returned to the BRJGT office before acceptance into any event. The three forms are:
- Medical Release Form
- Parent / Spectator Guide
- Code of Conduct
All tournament entries will be returned if the above forms are not already on file in the BRJGT office. No entries will be accepted at the tournament site or by telephone or fax, unless otherwise specified. No confirmations of accepted entries are mailed; however, tee times are available at least 5 days prior to the event by calling the host club or by visiting the website: www.brjgt.com.
Players are required to walk and carry their own golf clubs. Pull carts may be used if the host club permits. No caddies or coaches are permitted.
Players should arrive at the course one hour prior to their scheduled tee time and are required to register at the registration table in person at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled tee time. Failure to register at the specified time may result in your place being filled by an alternate.
Dress Code Guidelines
These guidelines are in effect from the time you enter the host club facility until you leave that facility.
All boys must wear golf shirts with collars with shirt tails tucked inside shorts or pants; T-Shirts, tank tops, athletic jerseys, etc., are not acceptable.
- Soft Spikes are required at all golf courses.
- Girls may wear collared golf shirts with shirt tails tucked inside shorts or slacks.
- Bermuda length shorts must be mid-thigh or longer. Unacceptable apparel includes: tennis shorts, gym shorts, short-shorts, and cut-off jeans.

Any conduct that is deemed detrimental to the Blue Ridge Junior Golf Tour will not be tolerated. Such conduct includes but is not limited to the following:
- Consumption of any alcoholic beverages
- Smoking and/or use of any tobacco products
- Drug use
- Abusing language or profanity
- Club throwing
- Damage or abuse of host facility property or golf course
Any flagrant breach of the above guidelines will result in automatic disqualification from the event where the incident occurred. The degree of flagrancy is entirely at the discretion of the officials in charge in the competition. The player will also be disqualified from the next event entered without refund of entry fees. Two disqualifications will result in suspension from the Blue Ridge Junior Golf Tour for the remainder of the season.
Official Procedure for Withdrawal from a Tournament / Event
A player must notify Executive Director at 276-326-2089 (Home) or 276-345-8786 (Cell) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, at least 48 hours in advance of the tournament from which they indent to withdraw. This is the only acceptable procedure for official withdrawal; calling another BRJGT official, telephoning the host club golf shot, notes given to a starter, or faxes are not acceptable. Failing to properly withdraw from a tournament and/or failing to show up for the competition will forfeit the entry fee and the player will be suspended from the next entered tournament. Credit will be given for proper withdrawal or refunds will be mailed at the end of the season.
