Golf is a heavy sport that requires high standards of behavior and sportsmanship and relies heavily on Honesty, Integrity and Self Regulation. While society in general may have adjusted towards a less rigid approach to discipline, manners and etiquette, the Foundation believes strongly that its participants/beneficiaries should strive to set an example to their peers and should at all times show utmost respect towards themselves, fellow golfers, and the Foundation the represent.
Being a participant/beneficiary is a privilege which comes with responsibility and is available only to a select few; they are therefore expected to bear this in their minds when considering their approach both in the golf course and their day to day life.
The following conduct, both on and off the course will not be acceptable or tolerated at anytime:
- Smoking is strictly prohibited to all participants/beneficiaries
- Drinking of alcohol while representing the Foundation
- Partaking or distribution of prohibited drugs
- The use of offensive language
- Throwing of clubs or the abuse of golfing equipment
- Conduct which may offend the etiquette or the rules of golf as laid by the Royal and Ancient Golf of St. Andrews
- Any other behavior or act which may be offensive to acceptable social protocol
