Pace of Play Policy


Your position on the golf course is directly behind the group in front of you 

NOT directly in front of the group behind you! 


  • All scorecards MUST be time-stamped at the completion of Hole 9 and Hole 18, before totaling scores. 

  • Any group's timecard that is missing either the Hole 9 or Hole 18 time-stamps will be assessed a 1 stroke penalty on 18.

  • All scorecards MUST have written times entered at the completion of #15 (clock is on #16 tee).

  • Monitor your pace with the clocks on #4 tee, #8 tee, #12 tee, and #16 tee.

  • All groups are expected to finish the front nine in 2:20 and finish the back nine in 4:45.

  • All members of any group that finishes the front nine in 2:22 or more AND is 12 minutes or more behind the group directly in front of them will be assessed a 1-stroke penalty. If the penalized group finishes the back nine 11 minutes or less behind the group in front of them OR under 4:46, the penalty will be withdrawn. 

  • ALL members of any group that finishes the eighteen holes in 4:46 or more AND is 12 minutes of more behind the group directly in front of them will be assessed a 1-stroke penalty.

  • The 1st two groups MUST finish in 4:45 or better, or each player will be assessed the above penalties.

  • After a player has been assessed a Pace of Play penalty in 2 tournaments, that player will be assessed additional penalties, and the penalty may not be limited to just penalty strokes.

  • Each member of the group is responsible for maintaining a proper Pace of Play.

  • Tournament results will not be official until the Pace of Play is reviewed.



Improve Pace of Play Tips


Minimize your time on the tee:  Hit when ready; save time by playing a provisional ball if you think your original ball might be lost or out bounds.

Plan your shot before you get to your ball: Think ahead; determine your yardage; make your club selection before it is your turn.

Be efficient on the putting green: Line up your putt while others are getting ready to putt; first player done puts flag in the hole.  Wait until the next tee to record the scores.


When sharing a cart, use a buddy system: Don't wait in the cart while your partner hits and then drives to your ball.  Get out, walk to your ball with a few clubs.  Be ready to play when it is your turn.

Be helpful to others: Follow the flight of all tee shots; help others look for their ball after you have played your shot; volunteer to fill in a divot or rake a bunker; be ready to attend the flag stick.
