In an effort to ensure that the golf course is being utilized to its maximum capacity, the following policy notes are in place to limit and monitor ‘No Show’ or ‘Short Show’ tee times.
a) A “No Show” is any tee time which was reserved for a member or guest who did not show up to play golf at their reserved time. A “Short Show’ is a tee time reserved for more than the intended number of players.
b) If a player is not able to utilize their tee time reservation the player cancels at least 24 hours in advance by contacting the Golf Shop by phone or in person. As a minimum, unwanted tee times must be cancelled at least 12 hours before the reserved tee time. Continued abuse of the tee time cancellation policy may lead to loss of advanced tee times reservations.
EVENT CANCELLATION POLICY
Due to the nature of events, we ask that you commit to your reservation so that we can accommodate as many Members as possible and honor our commitment to vendors and other departments who are supporting the event. All events have a one week cancellation policy, where Club Members are subject to being charged in-full for an event if they do not show at the event or cancel within the given time frame.
PACE OF PLAY POLICY
Based on the feedback received from our patrons, one of the most important factors affecting customer satisfaction is pace of play. In an effort to improve golfer satisfaction we have established a Pace of Play Program that we are calling “It’s About Time,” which is specifically designed to increase our golfers’ enjoyment by improving awareness and providing strategies to avoid slow-play.
The “It’s About Time” Pace of Play Program is based on the principles of playing “Ready Golf.” We are asking all players to adhere to a 4-hour round of golf, as detailed in of USGA Time Par Schedule.
The most important item to remember is to keep up with the group in front of you. If you or your group falls behind on one hole, you are expected to play efficiently and regain your position. This might mean playing ready golf and continuous putting, both of which are allowed in stroke play.
Groups stopping for lunch at the turn lose their place on the 10th tee and should wait for an opening to proceed.
RAIN CHECK POLICY
Please check the forecast prior to playing. If rain is in the forecast, there are no rain checks. A rain check may be issued only if the golf course superintendent or golf operations manager deems the course unplayable. Players are expected to continue play during rain and/or drizzle. Rain checks are issued based on the number of unplayed holes. Rain checks expire at the end of the season.
DRESS CODE POLICY
Men: Shirts must be worn at all times and collars are recommended. Denim, tank tops and athletic attire are not permitted. Women: Backless & bare midriff garments are not permitted. All players: short shorts, cutoffs & metal spikes and athletic cleats are prohibited.
FROST DELAY POLICY
Following the delay, tee times will tee off in order of the originally scheduled tee time.
In the interest of safety, spectators are limited to following a particular group and are required to rent and utilize a golf cart. Pleasure trips across the course are not safe, interfere with play and are not be permitted.
