Rules of Play Policy
Our mission is to provide a supportive and welcoming atmosphere for all golfers.  
Our leagues draw players from all skill levels.  
The following rules of play are intended to help make your LPGA Amateurs Boston experience a wonderful one.

Pace of Play Policy

  • Plan your next shot while walking towards your ball or while others are playing.
  • Be ready to hit when it is your turn.
  • Walk briskly between shots.
  • Walk directly to your ball; only follow others if assisting in looking for a lost ball
  • If riding, take several clubs with you to your ball so you do not need to walk back to your cart.
  • Take only one practice swing.
  • Play a provisional ball if you think your original may be out of play.  Be sure to announce your intention to do so.
  • Leave your clubs/cart on the side of the putting green closest to the next tee.
  • Exit the putting green promptly after holing out.
Etiquette 
  • Be aware of the specific rules at the course you are playing (cell phones, dress code, local rules)
  • Put an identification mark on your ball and know what you are playing
  • Always play without delay and keep up with the group in front.
  • Invite faster groups to play through.
  • Do not move or talk near a player about to make a stroke.
  • Don’t step on another player’s line of putt.
  • Don’t play until the group in front of you is out of the way.
  • Shout a warning if your ball might hit someone – “FORE”
  • Repair divot holes and ball marks. Smooth footprints in the bunkers.
  • Leave the course in the condition you would like to find it.

Order of Play
Play “READY GOLF”. Hit the ball when you are ready as long as you can safely do so.  Do not focus on who has the honors to hit first.
