Course Rules

Proper Etiquette

Following are some rules of etiquette to help you and others playing enjoy the game of golf. Please use these rules as a guide.

  • If you are playing slow, move aside and let faster players through.
  • If you are more than a "Hole behind" of the group in front of you, let faster players through.
  • If someone in your group loses a ball, check on the group behind you. If they are close, waive them through.
  • Always try to play with a group. "One-somes" and "Two-somes" may not be allowed to play if the course is congested.

Other Etiquette Rules

  • Repair ball marks on green
  • Replace divots in the fairway and rough
  • Rake sand traps
  • Do not take pull carts on greens
