LPGA AGA Rhode Island Golf Leagues

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 AGA RI experience a wonderful one.

PACE OF PLAY

  • 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.
