Spectators, other than Official Junior Organisers, must remain at least 25 metres from the players throughout the round except when circumstances demand otherwise. Any breach of this rule could lead to the disqualification of the player concerned.

This record will ensure that every player has a handicap Index that reflects his/her true ability. The rule may be relaxed if there are exceptional circumstances such as prolonged medically certified illness. In such a case the matter must be referred to the Executive Committee for a decision. Any breach of this rule will lead to disqualification of the player concerned.
