The use of caddies is not compulsory.  Competitors requesting a caddie should mark the appropriate section on the application.  Limited caddies may be available at the host club.  The PGA of Canada will attempt to assist competitors with their caddie requirements, but neither the PGA of Canada nor the host club is responsible for securing caddies for competitors who desire them.
2. If an entrant has requested assistance in obtaining a caddie on the entry form, the entrant will be required to compensate the caddie arranged by the host club with the minimum caddie fee of $40 for the number of rounds in the Championship, unless the competitor makes arrangements with the host club to cancel the request one week in advance.
3. Pull carts (excluding those motorized) are permitted. 
4. Caddies must adhere to the PGA of Canada Dress Code, a copy of which is available at  
5. Caddies must wear flat-soled shoes.  Violation of this condition may result in DISQUALIFICATION of the competitor.

The Rules of the Royal Canadian Golf Association govern play as modified by the Local Rules on the PGA of Canada Rules of Play Card.  Supplementary Local Rules will be given to each competitor at the player’s first tee.  Local Rules on the host club scorecards shall not apply.  The PGA of Canada Committee shall have the final decision on all claims and disputes.  
2. The competition is deemed to have closed when the PGA of Canada Committee has approved all scores.
3. Only brands of golf balls on the most current List of Conforming Golf Balls may be used.
4. The driver a player carries must have a clubhead that is listed on the most current List of Conforming Driver Heads.

Automotive transport is permitted at any stage of the championship.  There will be a maximum of two carts per group for players and caddies only.  Caddies are not guaranteed a ride. Spectators, including spouses, are encouraged to attend the championship, but are not permitted to use automotive transportation at any time.  See Part B of the PGA of Canada Motorized Transportation Policy that is available at

The PGA of Canada assumes no responsibility for entrants' travel arrangements. Because the tournament may be oversubscribed, the PGA of Canada advises entrants not to book travel or room arrangements prior to confirmation of tournament acceptance unless those arrangements can be cancelled without penalty.

The Note to Rule 14-3 is in effect.  In this competition, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., gradient, wind speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.

The player’s clubs must conform to the grooves and punch mark specifications in The Rules of Golf that are effective from January 1, 2010. For full details on the new groove condition, please visit:  

1. Competitors must adhere to the PGA of Canada Dress Code which is available at and in the competitor registration package.
2. It is a condition of PGA of Canada National Championships that shoes with metal or traditionally designed spikes (regardless of composition, i.e., ceramic, plastic, etc.) are prohibited.   Penalty for breach of this condition is DISQUALIFICATION.

All players in a group must be present and READY TO PLAY at the time laid down by the Committee.  The order of play is not relevant.  READY TO PLAY is defined as being on or near the player's first tee accompanied with the necessary equipment needed to put a ball in play.  Notification by a PGA of Canada Rules Official will be given to late starters on the first tee or as soon as practicable.

The PGA of Canada has adopted the Canadian Anti-Doping Program set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport.  For further information please visit
