LET'S ELIMINATE SLOW PLAY

  • Play "ready golf". If you're ready and the person away isn't - hit your ball.. Be ready to play when it's your turn.
  • Keep up with the group in front of you, regardless of where the group behind you is.
  • Use continuous putting whenever possible. If you miss your first putt and have a short putt left, take your time and finish out. 
  • Drop partner off at his ball and go directly to your ball. He'll catch up.
  • Limit practice swings; don't take divots on a practice swing. It takes time to find and replace them.
  • If carts are allowed on cart paths only, take three clubs with you to your ball.
  • Attend to slower players. Help them but insist they keep up.
  • Try to follow the flight of your playing partners as well as your own ball and line up for prominent markers. Go directly to your ball, drop a hat or club cover, and then help others who may have lost their ball.
  • Remember you only have five minutes to search for a lost ball.  Most of the time, finding a ball in woods or high weeds will not improve your score for the hole.
  • Do replace divots and repair ball marks on greens.
  • Line up your putt while others are getting ready to putt, but don't interfere with the person putting.
  • Abiding by the above will eliminate the need to ever rush.
