**Spectators are not allowed to caddie for any players, however they are allowed to help search for lost balls.

**Spectators are allowed to carry raingear, clothing, and/or food for players.  Extreme care should be taken during the exchange of such items so that “Advice” is not given.

**Institutional personnel other than the designated coach are considered spectators.
