Utilizing these tips and making them common practice in your playing habits will allow you to play at a brisk and enjoyable pace.
Golfers who enjoy the Williston Golf Club, know and understand, the time-honored basics of pace of play etiquette:
~ Ready Golf - the first person to the tee, fairway or green should hit their ball regardless of whose turn it may be.
~ Limit your time searching for lost balls, The rules allow you 3 min., but keep it to around a minute or two..
~ No Mulligans - practice is for the range.
~ Share the cart driving - drop your cart partner off at their ball, then go to your ball and get ready to hit.
~ Leave green immediately after completing hole. Record scores on next tee.
~ Park your clubs/cart behind green, next to the next tee.
~ Save your long stories and jokes for the clubhouse.
~ Continuous Putting - putt out and complete the hole rather than marking short putts.
~ Do not discontinue play at the turn - 5 min maximum pit stop. Go directly to 10th tee.
