Rules on the tee
- Keep a safe distance from your fellow players.
- Never swing in the direction of your fellow players.
- Make sure that you know where your fellow players are (failure to take this precautionary measure has already led to accidents).
- Respect silence while your fellow players are playing.
- Follow the correct order of play for HCP-effective rounds.
- Do not stand behind the ball (unless with prior agreement).
- Only Tee off when the group in front of you is safely out of reach.
- Make sure that you don’t unnecessarily damage the tee surface. (practice swings)
Pace of play
- Consider your club choice for the next shot on the way to the ball.
- Do not use overly long pre-shot routines.
- Make a maximum of 1 practice swing.
- Walk quickly between the shots.
- Always keep up with the group ahead.
- Consider where you place your trolley at the green to allow for quick progression from the green to the next tee.
- Always leave the green quickly. Mark your card on the next tee.
- Pick up your ball if you have exceeded a valid score on that hole and the next group is approaching.
- Wave the group behind you through, while looking for the ball.
- Tee off first and then note the score of the previous hole.
Additional pace of play “Ready Golf” in free play mode
- Agree “Ready Golf” with your group before starting.
- You may deviate from the order of the match rule 10-2. The player who is ready to play strikes the ball. Always in agreement with your playing partners and in accordance with the principle of safety.
- If a long hitter must wait, the others should play first.
- You may wait a few meters ahead of your playing partner, who is hitting, but not in the line of play or sight.
- Play your ball first and then help to find a lost ball.
- In doubt, play a provisory ball.
- Play your ball, even if your playing partner is still raking at the bunker.
- Exchange distance and obstacle information whilst approaching the ball.
- Advise players of incorrectly placed trolley/carts.
- Always put your glove on and off in advance of each shot.
- Putt even if your flight partners are not yet on the green.
- Do not wait for your partner if he/she has played the ball over the green.
- Putt, even if you are very close to others putting lines.
- Note the scores just after the next tee shot (minimum 1st player of the flight).
- If the forward group is too slow (e.g. fourball before a twoball), ask kindly if the hole may be skipped (without playing this hole, otherwise there would be waiting times for all following groups).
- Then hurry to play the next hole so that the overtaken group does not need to wait.
Care on the tee, fairway and in the bunker
- Place broken tees, cigarettes and all other waste in the bins.
- Repair divots.
- Rake the bunker after stepping into it and place the rake completely in the bunker (motto: Eliminate your own and others marks, brings good luck!).
- Do not drive your trolley between green and green bunker, over the green, through a hazard or ground under repair.
- Don’t try to cut it short, because you could disrupt other groups.
- A start from Tee 10 is only possible after consultation with the secretary office.
At the green
- Correct your own and others’ pitchmarks.
- Take out the flag when putting and lay it carefully on the green.
- Your ball may not land closer than 50 meters behind the forward group.
- Tee-off only when the forward group is out of range.
- Do not create unnecessary noise.
- The greenkeepers have absolute priority.
- Never endanger greenkeepers, other players or walkers.
- When in doubt, always shout FORE.
- Our local rules can be seen on the score card and on the green fee bag tag.
