The IGF Anti-Doping Policy is based on the World Anti-Doping Code and has been adapted to golf. Under the IGF anti-doping program, players are tested for banned substances and methods in accordance with the Prohibited List of the World Anti-Doping Code.

The World Anti-Doping Code is published by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and is the core document that provides the framework for harmonised anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport organizations and among public authorities. It works in conjunction with 8 International Standards aimed at bringing harmonisation among anti-doping organisations in various areas: Testing & Investigations (ISTI), Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), Laboratories (ISL), Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI), Code Compliance by Signatories (ISCCS), Education (ISE - new in 2021), Results Management (ISRM - new in 2021) and the Prohibited List.
