 Handbook Page 6:  Playing Rules and Etiquette

1.  All play will be governed by USGA rules except where local ground rules may apply.    

2.  Each player must have their own bag and set of clubs.   

3.  Playing groups larger than foursomes are not allowed except with special permission from the Pro Shop before starting play.  Foursomes will have preference at all times.   During heavy use days, golfers will be scheduled as foursomes to speed up pace. 

4.  All players must have a current membership or pay green fees, and must register in the Pro Shop before starting to play.  Tee times are strongly recommended at all times.    

5.  There will be no practicing or instructing on the course.  The practice tee and greens are provided for this.   

6.  All players must start on Number 1 tee, except by permission from the Pro Shop to start elsewhere.   

7.  Divots on fairways must be replaced immediately and all ball marks on greens repaired.  Sand traps are to be smoothed upon finish of play.    

8.  Slower players must allow faster players to play through.  If, at any time, players lose pace and find an open fairway in front of them, they should signal the following players to play through and should not hit until those players have moved out of range.   

9.  Non-members may not use personal carts on the course.  

10.  Golf bags must be kept off the greens, pull carts should be kept at least ten (10) feet from the greens.   Neither should be placed or parked in front of the green.  Power carts must remain on cart paths near greens.

12. When play on the greens is completed, the flag will be replaced at once and all players will leave the vicinity of the green promptly.  Scoring should be completed AFTER leaving the green. 

13. All members are asked to police the course.  Receptacles for trash are on each tee.
