GUIDELINES FOR COACHES TO COACH/COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR GOLFERS FROM TEE TO GREEN

Golf is a game of honesty, integrity and honor. To this extent, the following guidelines have been established to allow one school coach from each school to coach/communicate with their golfers from the tee to the green. Coaching/Communicating with a golfer should in no way hinder the pace of play.

COACHES MAY:

  • Coach/Communicate with their golfer after all golfers in the group have teed off and until all golf balls have arrived on the green.
  • Coaches may communicate with their golfers once all have holed out on a green. All coaching for all golfers in a group will cease when the first golfer in the group steps on the teeing ground of the next hole.
  • Coach/Communicate with their golfers on such matters as club selection, wind direction, hole-strategy, swing adjustments, and mental adjustments.
  • Assist all golfers in looking for golf balls that have not been located.

NOTE: Prior to any stroke, the coach must be at least five yards away from their golfer.

COACHES MAY NOT:

  • Coach/Communicate with their golfer once all golf balls from the group have arrived on the green. During this period of play, coaches will take on the same role as a spectator, maintaining a distance of 30 yards from all golfers.
  • Make rulings on matters of play that are the responsibility of the golfers, meet director, tournament committee or rules officials.
  • Be on the tee box or green at any time.
  • Read putts for their golfers.
  • Coach a golfer from another school.
  • Caddy for their golfer.
  • Keep the official scorecard for their golfer.
  • Use electronic communication devices to coach during competition.
  • Use a teaching aid or technology on the course. This would include, but is not limited to a cell phone (pictures or video), range finder/measuring device, etc.

ID Badge/Wrist Band:
All head coaches must attend the coaches meeting prior to the start of the tournament so they will be identified by the tournament manager. The coach will receive a KSHSAA wristband to wear throughout the event (post-season) & ID Badge from host school (regular season).
