Key Points for Walking Scorers

Encourage sportsmanship, self-control, proper golf etiquette, ready golf, and having fun.


If a player has a question regarding a ruling, he or she should play a second ball under USGA rule 3-3. They shall hole out with each ball. Check with a next available marshal or obtain a ruling upon completion of the round. Scorers are not authorized to make rulings.

Hole by Hole Scoring:

Leave the green area and then make sure there is agreement on all scores. Upon conclusion of the round, recheck all cards, upon agreement, players shall sign their card and turn it in to the tally keepers. Players shall not leave the course until this is completed.


As a volunteer scorer, you are requested to report any rules or conduct violation, on the part of any player in your group, to the COJGA Tournament Director. WE WANT TO AND NEED TO KNOW of any violation in order to maintain the integrity of the game.
