Pace of Play requirements:
All groups are expected to complete an 18 hole round of golf in 4 hours and 20 minutes or less. All groups are expected to keep pace with the group in front them, by completing each hole within 12 minutes or less of the time the group in front finished the same hole. Example: Group “A” puts the flag stick in cup on hole number 18 at 12:00 and Group “B” finishes and puts the flag stick in cup on hole number 18 at 12:12 (no more than 12 minutes).
When a lead group finishes a round in greater than 4:20, following groups may not be able to achieve a 4:20 round. However, all groups are expected to maintain a finish time of 12 minutes or less following the group in front to maintain the pace of play.
Each group’s elapsed time for a round of golf is determined on the 1st tee beginning with the first drive of the group and the 18th green when the flag is placed in the cup to end the round. Times are noted by the starter (1st tee) and staff working for the golf course Professional (18th green).
