Course Guidelines and Rules
- Proper golf attire is expected. See Dress Code for details.
- Foursomes have priority, followed by threesomes. A single or twosome may be paired at discretion of Starter.. Groups of five or more are not allowed.
- All players shall start on the number one hole unless otherwise directed by the Golf Course Manager.
- U.S.G.A. Rules govern all play except where amended local rules and conditions specify otherwise.
- Pace of Play: 4 hours 15 mins is considered the acceptable pace for a foursome on busy days when carts are allowed off paths, 4 hours and 15 minutes is the standard when required to stay on paths. If a group loses the distance of one hole and is not keeping pace with above times they should first, try speed up and close the gap, and if this is not possible, they should allow groups behind to play through as necessary to keep play moving. Fast play is an equally serious problem. Groups should maintain their position on the golf course without either holding up behind or pressuring those in front. Twosomes and threesomes should maintain the pace above and not expect to go through every group. Slow play or fast play violations are both considered serious infractions of unacceptable course etiquette.
- Players entering bunkers shall smooth out and rake all depressions before leaving the area.
- All divots must be carefully repaired.
