Pace of Play

No one likes a six-hour round of golf even on a warm sunny day. Let's do our part to maintain an acceptable pace of play while out on the course. This will maximize the enjoyment for everyone on the course and to set a favorable impression of the LPGA Amateurs Seattle wherever we hold events and leagues.

Please follow these pace-of-play guidelines and pass them on to newer golfers in your foursome who may be unaware of these tips to keep the game moving.

Focus on keeping up with the group in front of you, NOT staying ahead of the group behind you. If the green in front of you is empty, pick up your pace of play.

Be aware of when your group is falling behind and make an effort to catch up right away. It's a lot easier to make up a half hole than an entire hole or more. You also hold up fewer groups behind you when you make up gaps right away. Don't be afraid to mention the need to catch up to others in your foursome. If the tee box in front of you is open, have one twosome putt out and move on to the next tee while the other twosome finishes your hole.

Play 'ready golf' on the tee box and in the fairway. If the person furthest from the pin is not ready to play and you are, go ahead and play first after announcing your intention to do so.

Plan ahead so that you are always ready to play. Choose your club and assess your shot while walking to your ball. Be ready to move to your ball when it's safe. Limit practice swings once it is your turn to go.

Update your scorecard on the next tee box, not on the green.

When approaching greens, stage golf carts and golf bags toward the next tee. This will allow you to promptly clear the green for the group behind you and to arrive at the next tee box more quickly.

On the green, be ready to pull, tend, or replace the flag for other players as needed. The person with the shortest putt should tend the flag after marking her ball.

Putt out short putts rather than marking. If your putt stops very close to the hole, go ahead and putt your ball into the hole if you can do so without standing in someone else's putting line.

Help your partners. Help others find lost balls. When others are hitting, watch their ball land and make a mental note of landmarks where the ball landed to further assist in finding balls promptly.

Be attentive. Don't get caught up in socializing while the group ahead of you has moved on.

When using carts, if both riding partners' balls are hit to different spots, split up. Drop one player off at her ball while the other drives to hers. If you are the player left without the cart for the shot, think ahead and carry all potential clubs that you might need for the next shot or two.

As a general rule, you should be able to complete 18 holes in 4.5 hours and 9 holes in 2.25 hours.
