Pace of Play

Everyone would like to play a round of golf in a reasonable time. To that end, we ask each player to be aware of maintaining their group's position to the group in front of them. It is that SIMPLE. Please be a leader in your group and let your fellow playing partners know if you have lost the group in front of you. This will put the onus on everyone to find ways to play quicker. 

Please check out these videos to learn how to play more efficiently without needing to rush any of your pre-shot routine.

Pace of Play

On The Tee

  • Be aware of your position with regard to the group ahead of you.

  • Check your scorecard for the expected allotted time.  

  • Follow the flight of all tee shots, not just your own.

  • Play a provisional ball if you think your ball may be lost outside a water hazard or out of bounds.

  • Mark your scorecard when others are preparing to hit their shots.

On The Fairway

  • Be aware of your position with regard to the group ahead of you.

  • In the fairway, play your ball and then help others look for theirs. 

  • Be ready to play as soon as it is your turn to play. 

  • Determine your yardage and make your club selection before it is your turn to play. Very often, you can do this while others are hitting or preparing to hit and, without disruption. 

  • If you feel that your group is losing ground, tell the other players in your group.

  • If the player whose turn it is to play is not ready - and you are - let the others know that you will go ahead, if you can do so safely. 

On The Green

  • Be aware of your position with regard to the group ahead of you.

  • Place your golf bag/cart at the "exit" area of the green. 

  • On the putting green, repair your pitch mark, remove loose impediments and line up your putt while others are playing. Do so without disturbance to others. 

  • Move off the green as soon as all players in your group have holed out and mark score cards at or on the way to the next tee. 

  • Finish short tap in putts right away. It is not necessary to mark and align a short tap in.
