PRIDDIS GREENS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
POLICY STATEMENT #33
RE: PACE OF PLAY (MEMBERS CONTRACT)
 
Please read and sign the following Pace of Play Members Contract and agree to help improve our pace of play. 
 
What is the solution to improving Pace of Play at Priddis Greens?
·            To educate our membership that they are the solution to the problem.
·            SELF POLICE!!!
 
What is the problem?
·            Groups are unaware that they are out of position or slow.
·            On busy days (6 or more tee times per hour booked) each group of players must maintain their same position that they started their game throughout the entire round of golf. Ie: on the first tee you are able to see the group in front play their next shot and move on. When groups have a problem, and lose their position, they do not adjust their routine and regain their position.
·            On non-busy days (5 or less tee times per hour booked) each group must finish their round prior to the maximum allotted time. Raven – 4 hours and 20 minutes. Hawk – 4 hours and 30 minutes. When groups have a problem and lag behind the allotted time, they do not adjust their routine and speed up their pace.
 
How do you correct a Pace of Play problem?
·            As soon as you realize you have lost your position on the golf course or are playing slower than the allotted time, ALTER YOUR ACTIONS IMMEDIATELY, and correct the problem.
·            Each round of golf has an ebb and flow. Lost balls, out of bounds, balls in hazards, and 3 putts slow a round down.   Ready golf, continuous putting, picking up, and shortening a pre shot routine, speed a round up. 
·            Refer to website link “20 Ways To Beat Slow Play”.
 
What is a Pace of Play violation?
·            On a busy day, if your group is timed 15 minutes or greater slower than the group in front of you and also exceeds the maximum allotted time for that golf course you are in violation of our Pace of Play Policy.
·            On a non-busy day, if your group exceeds the total time allotted for that golf course you are in violation of our Pace of Play Policy. 
 
What are the consequences of a violation?
·            All names in the group, total time of their round and lag time behind the group ahead will be posted on our website for one week. 
·            Multiple violations will be dealt with on a case to case basis by the Pace of Play Committee.
 
Thank you for reading our Pace of Play Members Contract. We appreciate your help in assisting Priddis Greens Golf &CC to improve our Pace of Play. Please sign below and commit to making our golf club a more enjoyable place to play golf.
