Etiquette & Handicaps

Golf Course Etiquette
Persons using the golf facilities should do their part to make a round of golf at a The Club, a pleasant experience for everyone. Here are some suggestions: 

  • 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 his or her shot, it would be courteous for such player to indicate to another player to play.
  • The time required to hole out on and around the green is 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.
  • Players should ensure that greens are not damaged by putting down bags or 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 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. 
  • When approaching a green, park your golf cart on the cart path on the best direct line to the next tee. This can save about twenty 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 get out of the way.
  • When play of a hole is complete, leave the green promptly and proceed to the next tee without delay. Do the scoring for the completed hole while others in your group are playing from the next tee.
  • f you are not holding your place on the golf course (see General Golf Rules #7), allow the players behind you to play through. Do the same if you stop to search for a lost ball. 
  • Repair your ball marks on the greens. If you see unrepaired ball marks repair them also. Remind your playing partners to observe this courtesy. 
  • Carefully rake bunkers after use and place the rake outside the bunker.
  • Replace your Divots

Handicaps are computed under the supervision of the golf shop staff in accordance with the current U.S.G.A. Handicap System. 

All members and guests with a U.S.G.A. approved handicap may participate in Club tournaments. All handicaps submitted may be reviewed by the Golf Professional.

Members are responsible for turning in all scores on a daily basis. Any member failing to turn in a score shall result in a score being posted that is equal to their lowest score on record. The Golf Shop shall assist any members needing help with the posting procedures.
