  4. Prior to 11 AM on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays all groups must have at least three players, two of which must be members.

  7. Holes are to be played in the correct order, i.e. 1,2,3…  Jumping holes is not allowed.

  8. In the past there have been a number of complaints regarding a member hitting into the group in front.  There are no excuses for this.  The 6th hole is particularly dangerous.  One member of the group should remain at the top of the hill so that the group on the tee knows that the fairway is not clear.  The Board will take action on any breach of this fundamental golf rule.

  9. All divots must be filled with divot mix.  Walkers must obtain a divot mix container before playing and return it at the end of play.  Ball marks on the green should also be fixed properly – fix yours plus one more.

  12. Do not confront a slow playing group.  If the group in front has one open hole in front of them, contact the pro shop to report the issue.  The pro or his designee will drive out and rectify the issue.  It is possible the pro may instruct the group to move on to the next hole. Any altercation between groups should be avoided.  Contact the pro and he will deal with the situation.
