Code of Ethics

Code of ethics of the Golf Québec tournament players:


Men's dress code:

The Golf Québec regulations regarding the dress code must be ascertained and adhered to by all participants before, during, and after all Golf Québec events. Jeans are not to be worn. Shirts must have collars and be tucked in. Bermudas with sockettes or knee-socks and mock neck style shirts will be permitted in all tournaments, both subject to the host club dress code. Players are also responsible for the proper attire of their caddies and friends.

Women's dress code:

The Golf Québec regulations regarding the dress code must be ascertained and adhered to by all participants before, during, and after all Golf Québec events. Jeans are not to be worn. Shirts must have collars and be tucked in. Bermudas and skirts must not be shorter than four (4) inches above the knee. Pants and Capri pants are accepted. Shirts without a collar must have sleeves, while a Polo shirt does not necessarily require sleeves. Please note that all sports shirts and dressed shirts must be tucked in. The dress attire of all competitors must respect the rules of the host club at all time. Players are also responsible for the proper attire of their caddies and friends.

Discipline:

Article V of Golf Québec's By-law III stipulates, among other, that the "Board of Directors and the Executive Committee each have the power to permanently bar, for a definite or indefinite period of time, any member of a Club-Member from any tournament sponsored or controlled by the Association, and may censor or reprimand any such member who, in the opinion of the Board, is guilty of unbecoming conduct or conduct prejudicial to the good name of golf or to the best interests of the Association." Any competitor, whose conduct on the course or at a tournament site is judged as being unacceptable by the Tournament Committee, may be disqualified or excluded from any team. Throwing a club, a ball, damaging club property, and swearing are all unacceptable conduct. Consumption of any alcoholic beverages by a competitor or his caddie during the course of a stipulated round is prohibited.

We would like to invite you to consult the "Rules of Golf and Rules of Amateur Status" book to access the complete code of golf ethics.
