particular emphasis on beginners and juniors, we ask that all players use
common sense and courtesy when encountering the occasional stall in play. We will do everything that we can to keep play moving at a comfortable pace
and ask for your help and cooperation in this area.
Conduct and Sportsmanship
All Players are expected
to conduct themselves in a courteous and respectful manner at all times when on

inappropriate actions are may result in loss of playing privileges.
Care of the Course
Players should respect

they found it. Please do not take practice swing divots on the tees,
repair all ball marks, rake all bunkers and pick up your feet on the greens to
avoid damage from cleats.

and beginner golf, junior players accompanied by an adult may share either a
golf bag or clubs with permission of the golf shop.

House. This provision includes use of the golf course, driving range,
short game area and putting green.

of rules, course care, safety and general playing ability in order to receive a
special exemption to play without an adult. Please contact the golf shop
