The Iowa High School Athletic Association welcomes spectators to the State Golf Tournament, but also offers some reminders for spectator conduct during the event.

There shall be no coaching of golfers by parents or spectators. Spectators are to remain a reasonable distance behind the golfers while watching so as not to hinder play.

Should there be any interference by spectators with play in any way, shape, or form, the spectator(s) are subject to being asked to leave the premises by the management.

Spectators should remain approximately 30 yards behind the golfers on the course or on the cart path when observing play other than to cross fairways without interfering with players.

No spectator may instruct or advise a player about any shot selection a player is going to make. Once the players reach the green area, spectators should move over to the cart path, even with the green, to allow the next group of players to continue their rounds of play.
