R&A Pace of Play Policy

At R&A Championships, a hole by hole pace of play guideline is in force with shot by shot timing procedures if a group is out of position and exceeding the prescribed time limit. Such a policy is appropriate at competitions involving elite golfers when sufficient referees are available to enforce the policy; it is inappropriate for general play.

At registration at R&A Championships, players are provided with a note outlining their pace of play responsibilities; the note is translated into the native languages of each participant. Players are also required to watch the short video on the implementation of The R&A’s pace of play policy.
