Golf Club of New Jersey Basic Rules

  1. The USGA Rules of Golf govern all play. Do not touch your ball anywhere on the golf course except on the tee and on the green unless you are taking a penalty or free drop or unless the local rules for the day permit otherwise.

  2. There are absolutely no gimme putts.  You must putt everything out.

  3. Tournament scoring is done only on official GCNJ scorecards which will be handed out at the registration table prior to each event. 

  4. Once your scores have been signed and turned in they cannot be changed.

  5. You must keep track of your opponents scores.

  6. The maximum gross score per hole that you may record is 5 over par.

  7. Players must maintain pace with groups ahead of them or meet predetermined pace standards.  Failure to do so may result in penalties, disqualifications and late starts at future events.

  8. In the event of a tie in the match-play or stroke-play portion of the event, the following tie-breaking procedures apply - We review the scorecards of both teams and players beginning from the 10th hole on the golf course, regardless of where play began. We will break ties using a match of cards format beginning on that hole. We recommend that you pay special attention while playing this hole. Skins ties will be broken using the individual’s net score for 18 holes, the player with the lower net score is the winner.

           POINTS SYSTEM:  The points accrue as follows:
Individual/Team Net Champions  = 4 pts
Individual/Team Net Runner-Up  = 3 pts
Individual/Team Net 3rd             = 2 pts
Individual/Team Net 4th–T10th     = 1 pt
Individual Gross Champion        = 2 pts
Individual Gross 2nd–T5th           = 1 pt
Match Victory - individual          = 1 pt
Match Victory - team                = 2 pts
Closest-to-the-pin                    = 1 pt  
                                    All points in the four Majors are doubled. 

             POST SEASON:  During the regular season players will accrue individual points and the top 16 players who accumulated the most points will earn compensation for the GCNJ Tour Championship.  The top 4 players will play for free in the 36-hole Championship weekend at Seaview.  Players 5-8 will receive a $60 credit toward play, Players 9-12 will receive a $40 credit and Players 13-16 will receive a $25 credit per man. The winning team at this event will receive complimentary entry into the 2020 Myrtle Beach World Amateur in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Golf Club of New Jersey Club Policies

             ENTERING EVENTS:  Once your annual membership dues are collected you will begin to receive our newsletter, Golf Links, via email approximately every three weeks throughout the season. The newsletter will be emailed to your personal email address.  You will be able to access all event information including registrations, tee times and results on the website. You only pay for events you choose to participate in and you may play in as many or as few as you like.  We ask that you register for the events at least a week in advance so we may provide the host course a head count in advance.  Players also may play with whomever they desire.

             COMMITMENT DEADLINE:  This date will be provided on the application for each event and is the date that all players should register by.  This deadline is important because host courses will begin to book tee times for the general public following our final group.  You can still enter events after that period; however, your preferred tee time may not be available.

             STARTING TIMES:  As each entry arrives it is numbered sequentially.  The lowest numbers will get the first preference of tee time and so on.  If you’re playing with a partner or foursome, your starting time rank is assigned by the number of your group's last entry.  The only exception involves players with a history of slow play.  If you fall into this infamous category you will be assigned later tee times.

             TEE TIME CONFIRMATIONS:  Once the tee times have been arranged, which is usually three days prior to the event, you may access your tee time online at the club website by clicking on the “tee times” link found on the homepage. On that page you will find your tee time, pairing, directions and other tournament information.

             CANCELLATION POLICY:  Tournament fees are refunded provided the host course does not charge us.  This risk is assumed by the player.  Should you cancel less than a week prior to the event you do risk a cancellation fee based on what the host course charges.

             GUEST POLICY:  We encourage you to invite guests; however, a particular guest may only play in 3 events per season (excluding the Member Guest) if invited by a member holding a regular membership.  Corporate members are permitted to invite a particular guest to 5 events not including the Member Guest.  Certain events have guest restrictions.  Guests will pay $10.00 more than members at each event except The Member Guest.

             RAIN POLICY:  Any tournament cancelled by inclement weather will either be rescheduled or dropped from the schedule.  Tournament fees will be credited to your account or refunded.  Remember the old saying; however, "it doesn't rain on the golf course."
