Code of Conduct

Craigmillar Park Golf Club: Junior Section Code of Conduct


All Juniors must respect the traditions and etiquette involved in being a member of Craigmillar Golf Club.
  • Abide by dress code rules both on and off the course
  • Turn off your mobile phone
  • Make sure it is safe to swing before hitting the ball
  • Shout “fore” if you believe a ball may hit another golfer or walker
  • Always replace divots, repair pitchmarks and rake bunkers
  • Do not throw clubs or swear
  • Avoid slow play and keep up with the group in front (call faster playing groups through)
  1. If you're farthest from the hole, remember you are going to hit first 
  2.  Don't daydream! Be ready to hit when it's your turn. Know your yardage and what club to hit,  take one practice swing, and get in position to hit while the other player in your group is hitting
  3. Once everyone in your group has finished the hole, add up the scores on the next tee
  4. Place your golf bags on the way to the next tee, not in front of the green you’re putting on
  5. Keep an eye on the group in front of you. If you start falling behind them, pick up the pace a bit so you don't hold up the next group

Junior Members Code of Conduct

Every Junior must sign up to the junior code of conduct.  As a junior member of Craigmillar Park Golf Club you are expected to abide by the following code of conduct:
  • Treat all players as you would like to be treated – fairly
  • Help create and maintain an environment free of fear and harassment
  • Play for your own enjoyment and to improve your skills
  • Play by the rules – the rules of your club and the rules of the game
  • Demonstrate fair play and apply golf’s standards both on and off the course
  • Co-operate with your coach, officials and team-mates
  • Never argue with officials, staff or volunteers – without these people you can’t play golf
  • Be a team player – remember, you represent your family and the club 
  • Tell someone in authority if you are leaving a venue or competition 
  • Control your temper - verbal abuse of officials and abusing other players doesn’t help you enjoy the game
  • Don’t use ugly remarks based on race, religion, gender or ability – you’ll let down your coach, team mates and family if you do – and many such comments are actually now illegal

Parents and Supporters Code of Conduct
  • Remember that you are there for the participants to enjoy the game
  • Encourage participation but don’t force it
  • Teach that enjoyment is more important than winning
  • Encourage your child to learn the rules and play within them
  • Never punish or belittle a child for losing or making mistakes 
  • Discourage unfair play and arguing with club staff/officials 
  • Set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding good performances of all
  • Lead by example and respect all players, coaches, officials and spectators – physical or verbal abuse will not be tolerated
  • Publicly accept officials' judgements and never publicly criticise officials – raise personal concerns with club officials in private
  • Recognise all volunteers who are giving up their valuable time
  • Help your child to recognise good performance, not just results
  • Always notify the Junior Organiser if you will not be attending or are going to be late for a coaching session/competition
