PHONES: To be courteous to golfers on the course, we request
cell phones be used for emergencies only and the phones be
in a silent mode while golfing.
Guests can play any number of times and do not have to join
our league to continue playing with us. Do not have more than
4 people in your golf group.
CARTS : To speed up play and all finish at the same time,
we will have no walkers. Everyone will ride in a golf cart.
Our fees automatically pay for the golf cart and you cannot
get it any cheaper by walking.
GREEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER PUTTING OUT. DO YOUR SCORING AFTER
REACHING THE NEXT TEE.
NOT spend a lot of time fishing for balls!
STROKES COUNT: If you CAP at 10, pick up your ball, or
X out at anytime, you are ineligible for POD or Tournament
play. Your adjusted score will count for handicap.
When you intend to hit the ball but miss it completely, this
is called a "whiff" and it counts as a stroke.
THE FIRST TEE: Identify your ball by name and number to
those playing with you. Do not move, talk or stand in line
of sight when player is teeing off or putting. TWO STROKE
PENALTY if you play another person's ball. (USGA has additional
THE GREEN: Once all players are on the green, it is a
common courtesy to mark your ball. Once you start putting,
you can putt out to speed up play. If you hit someone else's
ball when putting, you must take a TWO STROKE penalty. The
person whose ball is hit is not assessed a penalty. (USGA
has additional rules)
THE FLAGSTICK: Rule of thumb is person with ball closest
to pin takes out the flag. Then the first person to putt in
puts the flag back in. Do scoring on the next tee.
TRAPS: Do not ground the club in the sand trap. Rake traps
after using. A common courtesy is for a members of the group
to rake for the person in the sand.
AND DIVOTS: When in the wrong fairway, you must give right-of-way
to those playing in that fairway. Repair and replace divots
immediately -- press down firmly with your foot.
BALL: Same rule and procedure applies as a ball hit Out
of Bounds. You have 5 minutes to look for a lost ball.
BALL: If you think your ball goes Out of Bounds or is
Lost, you may play a Provisional ball provided you do so before
looking for your ball and you inform your fellow golfers that
you are taking a Provisional. If you find the Original Ball
(and it is not Out of Bounds), you pick up the Provisional
and play the Original without penalty. If you cannot find
your Original Ball or it is Out of Bounds, play the Provisional
and count all strokes taken along with any penalty strokes
rules apply except as modified by Local Rules, found at
the top of this page.
