- Line your shots and select club while others are playing.
- On the putting green, putt until you hole out.
- Take a variety of clubs when forced to walk to your ball and when playing around greens.
- Do not take more than 3 minutes to look for lost balls. Mark errant shots with a reference point to find balls more easily.
- Plan ahead and use golf cart efficiently. Drop partner off at ball and drive to your ball. Park carts behind greens or in designated areas between green and next to tee box. Do not park carts in front of greens.
- Double par rule in effect. The maximum number of strokes a player may take is double the par on the hole being played.
- Beginners are encouraged to avoid busy times of day and are required to adhere to the double par rule. A helpful hint to ensure an enjoyable golfing experience and adherence to the double par rule is: once number of strokes equals par, pick up and drop on the putting green or within chipping distance and continue play.
- Respect and cooperate with course marshals to ensure an enjoyable round of golf for everyone.
