Pace of Play (and how to speed up)
A good pace of play is an important element in having a good experience on the golf course. It's often a combination of little things not done that contribute to slow play and on-course traffic jams. Here are some tips for making sure your pace of play is as brisk as it should be, at Pannal we practise “Ready Golf”.
• Pace of play isn't about rushing your shots, it's about being ready to take your shot when it's your turn, and behaving efficiently on the golf course.
• Remember - arrive at your starting tee at least 10 minutes before your allotted tee time.
• Numerous practice swings, lengthy delays lining-up putts and the pacing out of distances prior to club selec-tion are not sensible practices for average golfers.
• Leave your bags or golf buggies to the side of the green, and in the direction of the next tee, never in front of the green.
• Please repair any pitch marks on greens and also replace divots so that the course is kept in a good a condition for everyone
• Be aware of golfers both in front and behind you, speed up when required and don't hinder other golfers play-ing quicker than you
• Be prepared and be ready to play!
