LWGA 9 Hole Play Day

SCORING

There are 2 ways of scoring, low gross and low net.  Low gross is your unadjusted total number of strokes per 9 nine holes (or 18 holes if you play the whole course).  Low net is your total number of strokes minus your handicap.

BEAT THE PRO   

This is a game where you bet on yourself that with your score minus your handicap, you can beat the pro’s score.  You may put money down on yourself in the pro shop on Thursday that you can beat her.  How much is up to you.  If you beat her,  they will double it.  If you don’t, they will give you a certificate in the amount of the money you put down.  If you don’t know your handicap, you can find it in the ladies locker room.

BINGLE, BANGLE, BUNGLE

Game consists of 27 points...3 points for each hole, as follows:

  • Bingle - first ball on green wins 1 point
  • Bangle - When ALL balls are on green, closest to hole wins a point
  • Bungle - First in the hole wins a point.

Play proceeds IN TURN -  player furtherest out hits next
Tee off by HONORS on par 3's
At end of 9 holes, player with the most  points wins.  (A winner in each foursome)

BEST BALL (The foursome divides into a partner team)

Each of the two partners tee off.  You pick the shot you like (usually the best).  The partner that did not hit that tee shot hits the ball, then the first person hits and so on until you get to the green and hole. Start over again with the 2nd hole and again both hit a tee shot, pick the best ball and then the partner hits the second shot and you alternate until the ball is holed out.

BEST FIVE HOLES (Gross)

Fill out your score card as usual. The Sports Chair will determine your five best holes.

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

The Club Championship is two days of play. The pairing is done by handicaps the first day and by first-day-finishing order for the second day.  Players must play both days to be eligible for prizes.  Other players may play on either of the play days if not competing -- these players will be paired after those competing for the Championship.

At the end of the first day of play, a "medallist" will be awarded for low gross on that day.  The Champion will be the overall low gross for the two days.  Prizes will be awarded in each flight for gross, net, and putts with no winners receiving more than one award.

The week following the scheduled two Championship play days will be designated as a rain date for the second round of tournament. If play is cancelled two weeks, the winners will be decided on the one-week's play.

COUPON DAY

Three coupons will be handed out at time of play.  Use them if needed to get out of trouble.  Regular Play – Low Gross

CRIERS AND WHINERS

Flight status is converted into free shots that are used during a round.  i.e. Championship would receive 1 free shot; A Flight 3 free shots; B Flight 5 free shots, C Flight 7 free shots and D Flight 9 free shots

DAVID & GOLIATH

Scores are only for the par 5's and par 3's.  Keep your own score card for establishing handicaps.

DOG DAYS

Low Gross/Low Net

EARTH DAY 

Like Pink Ball Scramble (below)

FLAG DAY

Pick up a "flag" at starter table, add your name, add your handicap to course par for your total score (i.e. Course Par 36 + your handicap = ____ ). If after 9 holes, you have fewer strokes than you calculated, turn your flag in with the team score card.  You are a Winner!!!

Tip: Find your handicap ahead of time.  If you do not know your handicap, go to the LaFortune website to retrieve it.

HATE’ EM

Before teeing off, circle one hole that you absolutely HATE. Subtract the score on this 1 hole from your total

I CAN’T SEE IT!

Hit the ball once on EACH hole with your eyes shut.  Low Gross

IRISH MULLIGAN DAY:

Like a 3 leaf clover - Each player allowed 3 mulligans for entire 9 holes. One from tee box, one from the fairway, one on the green.  If Mulligans are used, play date not eligible to establish handicap. PLEASE do not slow down play.

IRON PLAY

Hit wood off the tee.  All succeeding shots must be hit with an iron. Regular scoring.

LEAST SHOTS TO GREEN

Low Gross, Low Net (The only time we cannot use putter to measure Gimme is during a tournament!)

Your gross score is the total number of strokes played in your round.  The actual number of strokes on each hole, totaled at the end of the round.

Low net is your gross score minus your handicap.  For example, if you shoot 55, and your handicap is 12, your net score is 43.

The winner of "low gross" is the player in her flight who had the fewest total strokes. The winner of "low net" is the player in her flight who had the lowest score after subtracting her handicap.

Your "adjusted" score takes into account the USGA's equitable stroke control. For handicap purposes, a player may take no more than 10 strokes per hole. As a player's handicap improves, she is permitted fewer strokes per hole. For example, as determined by handicap, some players may take only a 9 on a hole. So, if a player takes 10 strokes to hole out, she writes "10" on her card (raw score), but her score will be adjusted by Kay to "9" for the purpose of figuring her total score for handicap purposes.

ONE CLUB SCRAMBLE

You and your partners (playing as a foursome) each pick one club that you hit the best with: one to drive with off the tee, one for the fairway, one for the short shots and one putter. (Each player is responsible for hitting with the club she chooses for each hole.) Team with the lowest gross score wins. When you get your Tee Time, you will know who is in your group. (Call each other to see who is playing with what club before play.)

PAR FOR WORST HOLE

Player may substitute Par for score on their worst hole.  Keep your own score card for establishing handicaps.

PARTNER’S ODD AND EVEN

Before play begins, the foursome needs to form 2 pair of partners.  Each pair needs to decide which partner's score will count on the even holes (2,4,6,8) and which will count on the odd holes (1,3,5,7,9). Place partners names together on the team score card.  Keep each player's score as usual, but in addition, indicate the even/odd holes that count for each partner by circling those scores.  For those players with no partner, Sports chairman will pair the single person's scores with another single scorecard for some surprises!

PINK BALL SCRAMBLE

The Pink Ball goes to player #1 for hole #1.  Player #2 for hole #2.  Player #3 for hole #3.  Player #4 for hole #4.  Whoever has the Pink Ball, use that score for the team score card.  Once each player has played the Pink Ball once, the rotation starts all over and continues throughout the game.

  • If you lose your Pink Ball, circle the hole you lost it on and continue to play.
  • At the completion of your game, return the Pink Ball to the Club Room and leave it with your score cards.
  • If you put the Pink Ball in the creek and can find it, you are still in the game.

READY, SET, GO

Low Gross Per Flight

RINGER TOURNAMENT (W1) (W2) (W3)

Play the same course three times and best score on each hole will be counted.  If you do not play three times, your best score will also be counted.

SCRATCH & SCRAMBLE

Four ball stroke play.  On each hole, scores are added and divided by four to obtain the team score.  Full handicaps are used.   Keep your score as normal, with total strokes on one line, pars on another.  Susie Brower will score the play of the day.  Be sure to put your name on a separate line.  For the team scorecard, use the entire card, with two lines for each player: total strokes on one line, putts on the next.

SPRING TOURNAMENT (this is flighted) 

SUCKER IN THE BUCKET

All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  The player with the best score, circle that score.

Hole #2:  All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  Of the remaining three players, circle the best score.

Hole #3:  All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  Of the remaining two players, circle that best score.

Hole #4:  All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  The remaining last player must use their score and is known as “The Sucker in the Bucket.”

On Hole # 5, you start over and following the same rules as Hole #1 through #4.

(If you do not have a foursome, follow the rules based on the number of players you have in your group)

T & F

Holes beginning with those letters.  Example:  We will count holes 12, 13, 14, and 15

TEE TO GREEN

Count only the strokes from tee to green. No Putts.

TEE FOR ALL   

Tee up your ball for any shot, not on the green.

THREE CLUBS AND A PUTTER

THREE LITLE PIGS - Throw out score of worst 3 holes 

TRICK OR TREAT

There will be a trick or treat at each hole

TURKEY SHOOT

This tournament is not flighted.  Played the last 3 weeks of the golf year.  The object is for a player to beat their score from the previous week.  The winners are determined by the best score from the 3 weeks.  Winners are the low gross, low net, and low putts in each flight.

Membership Application


History of the Nine Hole Women's Golf League

The LFWGA-Nine Hole Association began in 1977.  Neighbors and friends Dolores Boden and Tippy Hawkins had been playing the par three course for years, when Tippy, whose short game was frustrating, suggested to Dolores that they would probably make the same score playing the front nine of the regular course and would get to use their woods.  Then Dolores spotted a blurb in the Newspaper that LaFortune was starting a Women’s golf league.  We were so excited and asked if we could form a nine hole group too.  We were told that we could but would have to follow the 18 hole players (there was only the one golf course then).  And although we had a “President” to represent us, we would have no control over money, pairings, etc.

LaFortune advertised a “recruitment” coffee for all those interested in joining either the 18 holers or the 9 holers, and the League was formed.  There were no pairings and for the nine holers it was first come, first served to play. We started with about 30 women.  While waiting to tee off, we enjoyed the gossip and meeting new people, many of whom are active today.  Barbara Scholtz, Zagnona Cox, and Marion Simmons, Dolores and Tippy were some of the first to sign up who are still playing.  Soon we had enough players that we were able to separate completely from the 18 holers, with our own officers and treasury.  When South lakes opened we were then able to play separate courses.  We were first to have a written newsletter called “The LaFortune Teller”, (the nine holers “The LaFortune Cookies”). We had a Husband and Wife tournament every year on Sunday afternoon in September, which is the forerunner of our Gals and Pals Tournament.  Everyone brought a dish and a wonderful dinner was enjoyed by all.

We thought it would be a fun way to play and meet other golfers from other clubs and surrounding areas so we initiated a Guest Day, inviting other clubs.  The response was overwhelming.  We decided to have outfits to distinguish us from the other clubs.  Our colors were green tops and white bottoms.  The other clubs seemed to like the idea and soon picked their own colors.  When we went “on tour” to places like Eufaula, Bartlesville, Miami, it was easy to recognize the other clubs because of their colors.

Though we have become more technologically advanced and activities change we still enjoy meeting new friends and playing golf.

LWGA Hole Rules

PLAYING TROUBLE SHOTS:

  • Side Hill – Ball Above Your Feet: Shorten grip, use open stance, play ball off right foot
  • Side Hill – Ball Below Your Feet: Stand closed to ball, close stance, play ball in center
  • Uphill Lie: Play ball forward of center, swing along slope, aim to right of target
  • Downhill Lie: Play ball back of center, aim to left of target
  • Trap-Explosion: Plant feet firmly, use a wider more open stance. Play ball off left foot. Hit sand an inch or two behind ball, and follow through completely
  • Trap-Chip: (When trap is shallow and ball is sitting well) Use an open stance, feet close together, play ball off right foot. Hit ball first
  • Playing Crosswind: Change target, use one more club that usual
  • Playing Downwind: Tee ball higher, use run-up shot to green, don’t pitch
  • Playing Headwind: Pitch to green, use two more clubs than usual
  • Playing out of Divot: Use plenty of wrist and hit down on ball
  • Deep Rough: Use from five to nine iron; don’t try to power ball

GIMME PUTTS: (Following rule was adopted by LWGA 9-hole league on April, 2007)

The only time a Gimme putt cannot be used is during a tournament or if you are putting for a PAR or BIRDIE or EAGLE!! You must putt the ball into the cup.

A gimme putt is a putt that is 18” or less to the edge of the cup. To be eligible to use a gimme putt, your putter must be marked by one of the golf pros at either LaFortune or South Lakes golf course. To measure, rest the head of your putter inside the edge of the cup and if your ball is within the 18", then pick up your ball.  This is meant to speed up play. Be sure to count the "gimme" as a putt on your scorecard.

If your putt is within the 18", you can say "that's a gimme" or another member of your group can say "that's good," and you may still attempt the putt. Once a putt is conceded, but the player decides to make the putt for practice and misses, it is still good. Remember, the whole point of gimme putts is to speed the pace of play, so try to limit these extra putts.

(Rule 2-4. Concession of Next Stroke, Hole, or Match - This is a standard procedure, modeled after the Rules of Golf rule applicable to match play.)

TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME

PACE OF PLAY - Keep players behind you happy

ALL GOLFERS

  • Be on time and ready to play
  • Carry extra ball and tees in your pockets
  • Keep pace with the group in front of you
  • Play “ready” golf. If two people are on opposite sides of the fairway, both can hit their balls.
  • On Tee Boxes 2 - 9,  if you are running behind, go ahead and tee off as soon as you get to the Tee Box.  We do not use “honors” on the Tee Box
  • Leave two players on the green and move on to the next Tee Box – It is not necessary for all players to remain on the green until all have putted out
  • Record your score at the next hole - Move away from the green to allow players behind you to hit
  • When you walk or ride up to the green, please go around to the back of the green with your push carts or to the side of the next hole before putting - This allows the people behind you to go ahead and hit onto the green.
  • Put your club in your bag at the next stop if your group is behind and clean clubs and put head covers on at that time if this is your routine
  • Take extra clubs around the green for pitches, chips and putts to allow your cart partner to go ahead to park the cart
  • Drop your cart partner off at her ball and proceed to yours, when feasible, or walk to your ball while your cart partner is preparing for her shot
  • Take extra clubs with you to save a trip back to the cart on “Cart Path Only Days
  • If you hit your ball into the water, take a quick look and if you don’t see it, drop another ball to hit and move on.  After hitting one ball into the water, you may carry the ball across and drop on the other side of the hazard.  Example, if you are lying 2, and your third shot goes in the water, count 3 in, 4 out, plus 1 to carry over.  After dropping on the other side of the hazard, you are lying 5, hitting 6.  You may try to hit over a second time dropping a ball behind point of entry, but after two balls in the water, you must carry over.
  • If a player’s ball lands in a sand trap, the player could declare an unplayable lie and hit another ball from the same place before advancing.  The score would be counted the same as for a ball being hit into a water hazard – i.e., 1 in, 2 out, hitting 3.  The ball in the sand would be picked up as play progresses past the sand trap.
  • Sub-total your score on the next to last hole and be ready to total quickly when finished.  Compare your total with the person keeping the master card - This is really important if you are going on to play another 9 holes of golf.
  • Turn in score card and record Pars and Birdies after 9 holes of play, then proceed in a timely manner to next tee box.

Membership Application


History of the Nine Hole Women's Golf League

The LFWGA-Nine Hole Association began in 1977.  Neighbors and friends Dolores Boden and Tippy Hawkins had been playing the par three course for years, when Tippy, whose short game was frustrating, suggested to Dolores that they would probably make the same score playing the front nine of the regular course and would get to use their woods.  Then Dolores spotted a blurb in the Newspaper that LaFortune was starting a Women’s golf league.  We were so excited and asked if we could form a nine hole group too.  We were told that we could but would have to follow the 18 hole players (there was only the one golf course then).  And although we had a “President” to represent us, we would have no control over money, pairings, etc.

LaFortune advertised a “recruitment” coffee for all those interested in joining either the 18 holers or the 9 holers, and the League was formed.  There were no pairings and for the nine holers it was first come, first served to play. We started with about 30 women.  While waiting to tee off, we enjoyed the gossip and meeting new people, many of whom are active today.  Barbara Scholtz, Zagnona Cox, and Marion Simmons, Dolores and Tippy were some of the first to sign up who are still playing.  Soon we had enough players that we were able to separate completely from the 18 holers, with our own officers and treasury.  When South lakes opened we were then able to play separate courses.  We were first to have a written newsletter called “The LaFortune Teller”, (the nine holers “The LaFortune Cookies”). We had a Husband and Wife tournament every year on Sunday afternoon in September, which is the forerunner of our Gals and Pals Tournament.  Everyone brought a dish and a wonderful dinner was enjoyed by all.

We thought it would be a fun way to play and meet other golfers from other clubs and surrounding areas so we initiated a Guest Day, inviting other clubs.  The response was overwhelming.  We decided to have outfits to distinguish us from the other clubs.  Our colors were green tops and white bottoms.  The other clubs seemed to like the idea and soon picked their own colors.  When we went “on tour” to places like Eufaula, Bartlesville, Miami, it was easy to recognize the other clubs because of their colors.

Though we have become more technologically advanced and activities change we still enjoy meeting new friends and playing golf.

LWGA 9 Hole Play Day

SCORING

There are 2 ways of scoring, low gross and low net.  Low gross is your unadjusted total number of strokes per 9 nine holes (or 18 holes if you play the whole course).  Low net is your total number of strokes minus your handicap.

BEAT THE PRO   

This is a game where you bet on yourself that with your score minus your handicap, you can beat the pro’s score.  You may put money down on yourself in the pro shop on Thursday that you can beat her.  How much is up to you.  If you beat her,  they will double it.  If you don’t, they will give you a certificate in the amount of the money you put down.  If you don’t know your handicap, you can find it in the ladies locker room.

BINGLE, BANGLE, BUNGLE

Game consists of 27 points...3 points for each hole, as follows:

  • Bingle - first ball on green wins 1 point
  • Bangle - When ALL balls are on green, closest to hole wins a point
  • Bungle - First in the hole wins a point.

Play proceeds IN TURN -  player furtherest out hits next
Tee off by HONORS on par 3's
At end of 9 holes, player with the most  points wins.  (A winner in each foursome)

BEST BALL (The foursome divides into a partner team)

Each of the two partners tee off.  You pick the shot you like (usually the best).  The partner that did not hit that tee shot hits the ball, then the first person hits and so on until you get to the green and hole. Start over again with the 2nd hole and again both hit a tee shot, pick the best ball and then the partner hits the second shot and you alternate until the ball is holed out.

BEST FIVE HOLES (Gross)

Fill out your score card as usual. The Sports Chair will determine your five best holes.

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

The Club Championship is two days of play. The pairing is done by handicaps the first day and by first-day-finishing order for the second day.  Players must play both days to be eligible for prizes.  Other players may play on either of the play days if not competing -- these players will be paired after those competing for the Championship.

At the end of the first day of play, a "medallist" will be awarded for low gross on that day.  The Champion will be the overall low gross for the two days.  Prizes will be awarded in each flight for gross, net, and putts with no winners receiving more than one award.

The week following the scheduled two Championship play days will be designated as a rain date for the second round of tournament. If play is cancelled two weeks, the winners will be decided on the one-week's play.

COUPON DAY

Three coupons will be handed out at time of play.  Use them if needed to get out of trouble.  Regular Play – Low Gross

CRIERS AND WHINERS

Flight status is converted into free shots that are used during a round.  i.e. Championship would receive 1 free shot; A Flight 3 free shots; B Flight 5 free shots, C Flight 7 free shots and D Flight 9 free shots

DAVID & GOLIATH

Scores are only for the par 5's and par 3's.  Keep your own score card for establishing handicaps.

DOG DAYS

Low Gross/Low Net

EARTH DAY 

Like Pink Ball Scramble (below)

FLAG DAY

Pick up a "flag" at starter table, add your name, add your handicap to course par for your total score (i.e. Course Par 36 + your handicap = ____ ). If after 9 holes, you have fewer strokes than you calculated, turn your flag in with the team score card.  You are a Winner!!!

Tip: Find your handicap ahead of time.  If you do not know your handicap, go to the LaFortune website to retrieve it.

HATE’ EM

Before teeing off, circle one hole that you absolutely HATE. Subtract the score on this 1 hole from your total

I CAN’T SEE IT!

Hit the ball once on EACH hole with your eyes shut.  Low Gross

IRISH MULLIGAN DAY:

Like a 3 leaf clover - Each player allowed 3 mulligans for entire 9 holes. One from tee box, one from the fairway, one on the green.  If Mulligans are used, play date not eligible to establish handicap. PLEASE do not slow down play.

IRON PLAY

Hit wood off the tee.  All succeeding shots must be hit with an iron. Regular scoring.

LEAST SHOTS TO GREEN

Low Gross, Low Net (The only time we cannot use putter to measure Gimme is during a tournament!)

Your gross score is the total number of strokes played in your round.  The actual number of strokes on each hole, totaled at the end of the round.

Low net is your gross score minus your handicap.  For example, if you shoot 55, and your handicap is 12, your net score is 43.

The winner of "low gross" is the player in her flight who had the fewest total strokes. The winner of "low net" is the player in her flight who had the lowest score after subtracting her handicap.

Your "adjusted" score takes into account the USGA's equitable stroke control. For handicap purposes, a player may take no more than 10 strokes per hole. As a player's handicap improves, she is permitted fewer strokes per hole. For example, as determined by handicap, some players may take only a 9 on a hole. So, if a player takes 10 strokes to hole out, she writes "10" on her card (raw score), but her score will be adjusted by Kay to "9" for the purpose of figuring her total score for handicap purposes.

ONE CLUB SCRAMBLE

You and your partners (playing as a foursome) each pick one club that you hit the best with: one to drive with off the tee, one for the fairway, one for the short shots and one putter. (Each player is responsible for hitting with the club she chooses for each hole.) Team with the lowest gross score wins. When you get your Tee Time, you will know who is in your group. (Call each other to see who is playing with what club before play.)

PAR FOR WORST HOLE

Player may substitute Par for score on their worst hole.  Keep your own score card for establishing handicaps.

PARTNER’S ODD AND EVEN

Before play begins, the foursome needs to form 2 pair of partners.  Each pair needs to decide which partner's score will count on the even holes (2,4,6,8) and which will count on the odd holes (1,3,5,7,9). Place partners names together on the team score card.  Keep each player's score as usual, but in addition, indicate the even/odd holes that count for each partner by circling those scores.  For those players with no partner, Sports chairman will pair the single person's scores with another single scorecard for some surprises!

PINK BALL SCRAMBLE

The Pink Ball goes to player #1 for hole #1.  Player #2 for hole #2.  Player #3 for hole #3.  Player #4 for hole #4.  Whoever has the Pink Ball, use that score for the team score card.  Once each player has played the Pink Ball once, the rotation starts all over and continues throughout the game.

  • If you lose your Pink Ball, circle the hole you lost it on and continue to play.
  • At the completion of your game, return the Pink Ball to the Club Room and leave it with your score cards.
  • If you put the Pink Ball in the creek and can find it, you are still in the game.

READY, SET, GO

Low Gross Per Flight

RINGER TOURNAMENT (W1) (W2) (W3)

Play the same course three times and best score on each hole will be counted.  If you do not play three times, your best score will also be counted.

SCRATCH & SCRAMBLE

Four ball stroke play.  On each hole, scores are added and divided by four to obtain the team score.  Full handicaps are used.   Keep your score as normal, with total strokes on one line, pars on another.  Susie Brower will score the play of the day.  Be sure to put your name on a separate line.  For the team scorecard, use the entire card, with two lines for each player: total strokes on one line, putts on the next.

SPRING TOURNAMENT (this is flighted) 

SUCKER IN THE BUCKET

All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  The player with the best score, circle that score.

Hole #2:  All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  Of the remaining three players, circle the best score.

Hole #3:  All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  Of the remaining two players, circle that best score.

Hole #4:  All players tee off and play till all have putted out.  The remaining last player must use their score and is known as “The Sucker in the Bucket.”

On Hole # 5, you start over and following the same rules as Hole #1 through #4.

(If you do not have a foursome, follow the rules based on the number of players you have in your group)

T & F

Holes beginning with those letters.  Example:  We will count holes 12, 13, 14, and 15

TEE TO GREEN

Count only the strokes from tee to green. No Putts.

TEE FOR ALL   

Tee up your ball for any shot, not on the green.

THREE CLUBS AND A PUTTER

THREE LITLE PIGS - Throw out score of worst 3 holes 

TRICK OR TREAT

There will be a trick or treat at each hole

TURKEY SHOOT

This tournament is not flighted.  Played the last 3 weeks of the golf year.  The object is for a player to beat their score from the previous week.  The winners are determined by the best score from the 3 weeks.  Winners are the low gross, low net, and low putts in each flight.

GIMME PUTTS: (Following rule was adopted by LWGA 9-hole league on April, 2007)

The only time a Gimme putt cannot be used is during a tournament or if you are putting for a PAR or BIRDIE or EAGLE!! You must putt the ball into the cup.

A gimme putt is a putt that is 18” or less to the edge of the cup. To be eligible to use a gimme putt, your putter must be marked by one of the golf pros at either LaFortune or South Lakes golf course. To measure, rest the head of your putter inside the edge of the cup and if your ball is within the 18", then pick up your ball.  This is meant to speed up play. Be sure to count the "gimme" as a putt on your scorecard.

If your putt is within the 18", you can say "that's a gimme" or another member of your group can say "that's good," and you may still attempt the putt. Once a putt is conceded, but the player decides to make the putt for practice and misses, it is still good. Remember, the whole point of gimme putts is to speed the pace of play, so try to limit these extra putts.

(Rule 2-4. Concession of Next Stroke, Hole, or Match - This is a standard procedure, modeled after the Rules of Golf rule applicable to match play.)

TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME

PACE OF PLAY - Keep players behind you happy

ALL GOLFERS

  • Be on time and ready to play
  • Carry extra ball and tees in your pockets
  • Keep pace with the group in front of you
  • Play “ready” golf. If two people are on opposite sides of the fairway, both can hit their balls.
  • On Tee Boxes 2 - 9,  if you are running behind, go ahead and tee off as soon as you get to the Tee Box.  We do not use “honors” on the Tee Box
  • Leave two players on the green and move on to the next Tee Box – It is not necessary for all players to remain on the green until all have putted out
  • Record your score at the next hole - Move away from the green to allow players behind you to hit
  • When you walk or ride up to the green, please go around to the back of the green with your push carts or to the side of the next hole before putting - This allows the people behind you to go ahead and hit onto the green.
  • Put your club in your bag at the next stop if your group is behind and clean clubs and put head covers on at that time if this is your routine
  • Take extra clubs around the green for pitches, chips and putts to allow your cart partner to go ahead to park the cart
  • Drop your cart partner off at her ball and proceed to yours, when feasible, or walk to your ball while your cart partner is preparing for her shot
  • Take extra clubs with you to save a trip back to the cart on “Cart Path Only Days
  • If you hit your ball into the water, take a quick look and if you don’t see it, drop another ball to hit and move on.  After hitting one ball into the water, you may carry the ball across and drop on the other side of the hazard.  Example, if you are lying 2, and your third shot goes in the water, count 3 in, 4 out, plus 1 to carry over.  After dropping on the other side of the hazard, you are lying 5, hitting 6.  You may try to hit over a second time dropping a ball behind point of entry, but after two balls in the water, you must carry over.
  • If a player’s ball lands in a sand trap, the player could declare an unplayable lie and hit another ball from the same place before advancing.  The score would be counted the same as for a ball being hit into a water hazard – i.e., 1 in, 2 out, hitting 3.  The ball in the sand would be picked up as play progresses past the sand trap.
  • Sub-total your score on the next to last hole and be ready to total quickly when finished.  Compare your total with the person keeping the master card - This is really important if you are going on to play another 9 holes of golf.
  • Turn in score card and record Pars and Birdies after 9 holes of play, then proceed in a timely manner to next tee box.
