Tips for speeding up play

As members, we are expected to complete a round in under 4 hours.  Our goal is to enhance the playing experience by doing the following:

  • Play “ready” golf, no need to ask permission except in Match Play
  • Keep up with the group in front of you, not behind you
  • Plan your shot while walking to your ball or while others are playing
  • “Hit then sit” when sharing golf cart (put clubs away when you get to the other player’s ball), record score on the way to next hole
  • Park your cart and search for your ball on foot
  • Play your ball, then help others search
  • Fill divots/fix ball marks when waiting to play
  • Have one player take control of the flagstick
  • Park golf cart/trolley behind green for speed of play
  • Know the USGA Rules of Golf and Local Rules
