PACE OF PLAY

A good pace of play is an important element in having a good experience at the golf course. It’s often a combination of little things not done that contribute to slow play and on-course traffic jams.

Here are some tips for making sure your pace of play is as brisk as it should be.

Pace of play isn’t about rushing your shots, it’s about being ready to take your shot when it’s your turn, and behaving efficiently on the golf course.

Remember – arrive at your starting tee at least 10 minutes before your allotted tee time.

Numerous practice swings, lengthy delays lining-up putts and pacing out distances prior to club selection are not sensible practices for average golfers.

Leave your bags or golf buggies to the side of the green, and in the direction of the next tee, never in front of the green.

Be aware of golfers both in front and behind you, speed up when required and don’t hinder other golfers playing quicker than you.

Be prepared and be ready to play!
