Pace of Play at Edenderry Golf Club

Please remember Pace of Play is not about rushing your round.  However, it is about
being ready to play when it’s your turn and moving efficiently on the course.

(1) Sign in for the competition 20 minutes before tee-off time.
(2) Do not tee-off before your tee time.
(3) Be ready to play when it’s your turn.
(4) Read the green when you arrive and be ready to putt when it’s your turn.
(5) At the green, speed up your exit by positioning your bag on the way to the next tee box.
(6) Mark your score on the next tee box while another player tees off.
(7) Never hold up play because you are in the middle of a conversation (Walk and talk).  Sanction Rule 6-7.
(8) Where necessary play ready golf (No Honour on the Tee-Box).
(9) If you lose a clear hole and are delaying the group behind or if there is no group in front of you and you are delaying the group behind, invite the group behind to play through.
(10) If you think your ball has gone out of bounds or is lost, then play a provisional ball.
(11) When searching for a ball, the player whose turn it is to play should proceed to play, while the others assist in the search.
(12) Always know your position on the golf course.
(13) Remember the game of golf is about enjoyment and nobody enjoys being on the course for five hours.
