Wheathill Golf Club is a "Ready Golf" course
You can all help to speed up play by adopting "Ready Golf" in
all games other than Match Play
ON THE TEE
No "Honour" - the first player on the tee plays first
FROM TEE TO GREEN
All golfers should go to their own ball.
When you reach your ball and the course is clear ….Play!
(even if your playing partners have not reached their ball)
When waiting to play, decide on your shot, select your club,
and be ready to play when it is your turn.
Players should help to look for a lost ball, only after they
have found and played their own ball. if a ball is not found
within 3 minutes, it is considered lost.
(If there is a chance your ball may be lost, play a provisional
ball just in case)
ON THE GREEN
Leave bags, buggies & trollies on the exit side of the green.
Survey your shot whilst others are putting, so that you are
ready to putt when it is your turn. First player to hole out
picks up the flag.
MARK YOUR CARDS AFTER LEAVING THE GREEN
Adopt these principles, and the game will speed up and
be more enjoyable
All Casual golf is to be played from the YELLOW TEES for Men and RED TEES for Ladies.
WHITE TEES are for Competition use only.
