Golf Course Etiquette
Persons using the golf facilities should do their part to make a round of golf at the Club a pleasant experience for everyone. Here are some suggestions:
1. Do not waste time. Anticipate the club or clubs you may need and go directly to your ball. Always be near your ball to play promptly when it is your turn. If a player is delayed in making a shot, it would be courteous for such player to indicate to another player to play which should not be deemed playing out of turn.
2. The time required to “hole out” on and around the green is a chief cause of slow play. Study and clear the line of your putt while others are doing the same. Be ready to putt when it is your turn.
3. Be sociable, but reserve your extended conversations for the clubhouse after the round.
4. Players should ensure that greens are not damaged by putting down bags or the flagsticks and that the hole is not damaged by standing close to it or by removing the flagstick or the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the green. No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.
5. No one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.
6. When approaching a green, park your golf cart on the cart path on the best direct line to the next tee, in order to save significant time. This can save about twenty (20) minutes per round. Never leave the golf cart in front of the green where you will have to go back to get it, while the following players wait for you to move on.
7. When play of a hole is completed, leave the green promptly and proceed to the next tee without delay. Do the scoring for the completed hole while the others in your group are playing from the next tee.
8. If you are not holding your place on the course (see General Golf Rules), allow the players behind to play through. Do the same if you stop to search for a lost ball.
9. The golf rangers will report slow play and all breaches of golf etiquette to the golf shop. Appropriate action will be taken by the golf shop personnel.
10. Repair your ball marks on the greens. If you see unrepaired ball marks repair them also. Remind your playing partners to observe this courtesy.
11. Enter and leave bunkers at the nearest level point to the green. Carefully rake bunkers after use and place the rake outside the bunker.
12. Any divots made in the fairways should be filled with sand contained in the sand buckets on the golf carts.
