PACE OF PLAY

We believe our golf course can be played comfortably in less than four hours and fifteen minutes.  In keeping with this practice, please be ready to play your next shot (e.g., determine what club you will use for your next shot while the other players in your group are hitting).  When you reach the green, please fix your ball mark and line up your putt while the others are putting.  Please also observe the Open-Hole Rule, which is simply stated: when an entire hole opens up ahead of your group, please ask the faster group behind you to play through.  Finally, please keep carts a sufficient distance from the tees and greens and use the cart paths whenever possible.
