Pace of Play
Pace of Play Guidelines
Golfers, competition organisers and club staff may have differing views on what constitutes an acceptable pace of play but slow play can detract from the enjoyment of the game for many golfers. Few golfers are heard to complain about play being too quick!
There are three factors that influence pace of play:
- The players
- The management of play
- The course
There is a responsibility on players, administrators and greenkeeping staff to ensure that golf is played at a good pace and at a pace that is appropriate for the course being played.
