Persons using the golf course should do their part to make a round of golf a pleasant experience for everyone at the Club. Here are some suggestions:
A. 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 shot, it would be courteous for such player to indicate to another player to play which should not be deemed playing out of turn.
B. The time required to “hole out” on and around the green is a 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.
C. Be sociable, but reserve your extended conversations for the 19th hole.
D. When approaching a green, park your golf cart on the cart path on the best direct line to the next tee, in order to save significant time. Never leave the golf cart in front of the green where you will have to go back and get it while the following players wait for you to move on.
E. When play of a hole is completed, leave the green promptly and proceed to the next tee without delay. Record the scoring for the completed hole while the others in your group are playing from the next tee.
F. If you are not holding your place on the course (see General Golf Rules), allow the players behind to play through. Do the same if you stop to search for a lost ball.
G. The golf staff will report slow play and all breaches of golf etiquette to the golf shop. Appropriate action will be taken by the pro shop personnel.
