Golf Rules

The Rules of Golf of the United States Golf Association (“U.S.G.A.”) together with the Rules and Etiquette as adopted by the U.S.G.A. shall be the rules of the Club, except when in conflict with local rules or with any of the rules herein. All players are expected to learn and observe the fundamentals of golf etiquette.

  • “Cutting-in” is not permitted at any time. All players must register with the golf shop.
  • Practice is not allowed on the golf course. The practice facilities must be used for all practice.
  • Player assistants may be on duty to help regulate play and enforce golf cart restrictions. The player assistants have full authority on the golf course to enforce all rules and speed of play.
  • Slow play is not tolerated. In the interest of all, players should play without delay. No player should play until the players in front are safely out of range. If a foursome or other group of players is unable to maintain adequate pace of play and fails to keep their place on the course, they must allow the following group to play through. Player assistants have the authority to stop a slow playing group to allow the following group(s) to play through or to require the slow playing group to pick up their balls and move forward to catch up with the group ahead. 

All players who stop after playing nine holes for any reason must occupy the next tee before the following players arrive at the tee or they will lose their position on the golf course and must get permission from the starter to resume play.
While playing on the course, each player must use a separate set of golf Clubs and bag. All tournament play must be approved in advance by the Director of Golf.

Appropriate golf attire is required for all players on the golf course and practice facilities. Members are expected to insure that immediate family members and guests adhere to such rules. Members should remind their guests of the dress policy prior to arrival at the Club to avoid embarrassment for the member and guest. This dress code is mandatory for all players. Improperly dressed golfers will be asked to change before they play. If you are in doubt concerning your attire, please check with the golf shop before starting play.

If lightening is in the area, all golf play shall cease and players should seek appropriate shelter immediately.

“Discontinue Play (Rain) Policy”: Once players tee off they are responsible for nine holes. If players discontinue play before 5 holes, they will be issued an 18-hole rain check, after nine holes, they will be issued a 9-hole rain check. Once players begin play the 14th hole, no rain check will be issued.

  • Management may close the golf course to play at any time, at its sole discretion.
  • No beverage coolers are permitted on the golf course unless supplied by the Club.
  • Foursomes control speed of play. Twosomes and threesomes should not expect to play through foursomes and should not exert pressure on the groups ahead. Foursomes shall have the right of way.
  • Twosomes and singles will be grouped with other players, if available, at the discretion of the Golf Shop. Singles shall have no priority on the golf course and shall be permitted to play only at the discretion of the golf shop. Singles will not have the ability to book tee times in advance.
  • Fivesomes are not permitted on the golf course unless permitted in advance by Golf Shop personnel. “Course closed” or “hole closed” signs are to be adhered to without exception. 

The Club reserves the right to accommodate requests to have outings. Notices of these outings will be posted indicating the hours during which the outing will take place.
Hours of Operation
The hours of play and Golf Shop hours will be posted in the Golf Shop. The Golf Course Superintendent is authorized to determine when the golf course is suitable for play. The decision of the Golf Course Superintendent shall be final. In the absence of the Golf Course Superintendent, the Golf Professional on duty shall make this decision.

Starting Times
All golfers must have a starting time reserved through the Golf Shop, EZ Links Golf, or the member tee time portal on this website. The staff will assign the starting time depending on availability. Starting times may be made in person or by phone during Golf Shop hours. Internet reservations may be made twenty-four hours a day.

Club Members enjoy advanced sign-up privilege to reserve golf starting times. Persons reserving a golf starting time must give their name and membership number and the names of the players in their group at the time of the reservation.

Failure to check in and register fifteen minutes prior to a reserved starting time may cause cancellation, set back or a no-show fee to be charged to the member’s Club account. Players late for their starting time lose their right to the starting time and shall begin play only at the discretion of the Golf Shop personnel.
