Plantation Golf Club Pace of Play Guidelines
How We Manage Pace Of Play
Your Position On The Course
Your position on the Golf Course is directly behind the group in front of you.
Not directly in front of the group behind you.
Helpful Tips to Improve Pace of Play
think ahead. Determine your yardage and make your club selection before it is your turn to play. Very often, you can do this while others are playing, without disruption. If you take your glove off between shots, have it back on before it is your turn to play.
Keep your pre-shot routine short
Pick your line of play once and trust yourself. Try to take no more than one or two practice swings, then set up to the ball and play your shot. Most importantly, be ready to hit when it is your turn. Be efficient after your shot too. Start moving toward your next shot promptly.
Hit first, then search
Play your shot before going over to help your playing partner.
Keep the flagstick in
It is no longer a penalty to strike the flagstick while in the hole with a shot played from the green.
Finish short putts on the green rather than marking them.You’ll probably make more.
Be helpful to others in your group
Follow the flight of all tee shots, not just your own. Once in the fairway, help others look for their ball if you already know the location of yours. Volunteer to fill in a divot or rake a bunker for another player if needed. Be ready to attend the flagstick for others.
Keep up with the group in front of you
Your correct position on the course is immediately behind the group in front of you, not immediately in front of the group behind you. Arrive at your next shot just before the group in front leaves the area in front of you. If you are consistently not able to keep up and a gap opens in front of you, invite the group behind you to play through.
It’s okay to pick up
The handicap system allows for a maximum score. If you reach it, pick up, regroup, and try again the next hole. The max scores is a net double bogey for any player. Par of hole + 2 Strokes + Any handicap stroke(s) that the player receives on that hole.
Choosing The Best Tees
Arcis Golf encourages players to play from a set of tees best suited to their driving distance. In addition to providing more enjoyment for golfers, teeing it forward also can be one of the most important steps that golfers take in improving pace of play. As a guideline, you should be able to consistently and comfortably reach each green in regulation from the tees you choose to play. Take into account the playing conditions for that day. If weather conditions are causing the course to play longer, factor in the loss of distance and select your tees accordingly.
