.
                 

Breakfast Ball: (practice) You are only allowed this shot when it is your first shot of the day.  If you screw it up (the breakfast ball)  or hit another ball for any reason, you must play the 2nd ball you hit. No exceptions. You may not use this if you are in a skin game or any special event.  We will post these when this applies.

   Lost Ball, Out of Bounds, Unplayable Lies and Water Hazards:  These can and should be played as a lateral hazard.  This means you can move the ball (laterally) to the           nearest relief (grass) plus two club lengths.  You add a penalty stroke to your score and hit.  ( one in, the 1st shot, one out , the penalty stroke, hitting three).  If you do not understand please ask someone.

   No more than double par on any hole: If you are not holding anyone up you may continue playing until it is in the hole but your score is still double par.

   Gimme putts:  If you do not know what a gimme putt is, then putt it out) If you take a gimme putt be sure to add that stroke to your score. ABSOLUTELY NO gimmes will be given on any birdie or better putt.

   Keep up with the group ahead, play as fast as you can. SEE READY GOLF

HOW TO PLAY READY GOLF
 
To keep our and the courses pace of play in line, we play ready golf
This is not intended to make you nervous  or rush your shot.
!- Keep up with the group ahead of you, try to not get more than one hole behind, if you find that you are holding up groups behind you,  your group may may be ask to move up into position, and those holes missed will be adjusted. If a marshal or attendant ask you to move up, move up, and no crap
2- If it is safe to hit, be ready and hit the ball, no honors here
3- Do not wait until every one  has hit to get ready, be ready
4-Please watch , if you can where people have hit, and help find ball, do not waste a lot of time looking, especially if out of position
5-Yes at time we all have touble and get behind, just make it up asap

Not all bad players play slow, and not all good players play fast
