    Basic rules:

  1. All players must register and pay prior to teeing off.  Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to 9 am tee time!
  2. Rolling ball within 12” in the rough and fairway is permissible as long as sight/flight line to the hole is not improved by such movement.  A ball being played from a hazard must not be moved
  3. All “out of bounds” balls must be re-hit from original location and the player is penalized both stroke and distance.
  4. There will be no “GIMMES.”  All putts must be played to the hole with all strokes counting up to a triple bogey (see 6 below).  No exceptions please!
  5. “Greenies” are awarded only when a player pars the hole.  Therefore, do not lift prior player’s marker until you have secured your par.  Last group will bring in all markers.
  6. Please pick up ball after triple bogey attempt and score a triple bogey on the scorecard.
  7. Keep pace with group in front of you.  Under normal conditions there is no reason why any group should finish more than 30 minutes later than the first finishing group.
