GAM PLAYER CODE OF CONDUCT:
By submitting an entry, or by participating in any GAM competition, the player understands that his/her participation is at the sole discretion of the GAM. The player’s entry may be rejected for any reason, at the discretion of the Official-in-Charge, at any time before the close of the competition (as defined in the USGA Rules of Golf Rule 34-1b). Unbecoming conduct or actions at any GAM event, or state, national, or international event, or conduct or actions deemed detrimental to the GAM, the spirit of the game, or to the host facilities are grounds for such rejection. A serious breach in etiquette may result in disqualification per Rule 33-7.
A serious breach in etiquette may include, but is not limited to:
2. Willful destruction of golf course or GAM property
3. Abusive language or conduct towards GAM and/or host facility,
staff, volunteers, or other players
4. Club throwing and/or physical endangerment of others
5. Offensive or excessively loud behavior
6. Alcohol and/or substance impaired behavior
7. Repeated withdrawals or no cards during or after the round
8. Inappropriate golf attire
9. Not meeting handicap requirements
10. Other conduct deemed to be unbecoming
Should such an incident occur, the Official-in-Charge shall submit a report to the Championship Committee. Future sanctions may range from suspension from future GAM events to being ineligible for GAM team competitions and/or player awards. This may also include losing exempt status for future year(s). The decision to reject an entry during an event by the Official-in-Charge is final. However, any further sanctions imposed by the Championship Committee may be appealed to the GAM Executive Committee, whose decision shall be final.
