Slow Play: Rule 6-7 Slow Play. The Match Committee sets the pace of play guidelines. If a player unduly delays play, the penalty for a first offence in stroke play is one stroke.
Slow Play: If there is doubt about finding your ball, hit a provisional immediately. Before looking for the lost ball, other players in your group should hit their next shot, call up the group following, and then assist in the search. Five minutes is the maximum time for any search.
To save time, mark your card after you have hit off from the next tee. Your position in the field is directly behind the group in front of you.
Tee-Off: Play must commence from the first tee, unless otherwise instructed. When a competition under the
control of the Match Committee is in progress, a member not taking part may only play where directed by the starter. The starter has sole discretion on the order of play and may adjust the event starter sheets if required.
Invitation Events: Members may invite players from affiliated clubs to play with them in any invitation event
upon payment of the appropriate green fees.
