Golf Sun Country

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.


GUEST POLICY

We consider all guests to be prospective LPGA Amateurs Seattle members and encourage you to sign up your friends, colleagues and family members (male or female) for LPGA Amateurs Seattle events.

  
Guests may participate in up to two noncompetitive golf events, league days or education classes per calendar year.  After that, the guest must join LPGA Amateurs to take advantage of our golf event opportunities.  

The exception to this is for our out-of-town weekend events where guests are welcome to attend all event days scheduled for that weekend (typically 3 days scheduled per weekend event).

If there are limited slots available for an event, members will be given priority over guests. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact our President by sending email to president@lpgaamateursseattle.com.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Much time and energy goes into the preparation and execution of these activities.  Our contractual agreements with our courses, teachers & social venues often require us to notify them of the number of participants up to three weeks prior to the activity.  We are then contractually obligated to pay for that number of participants.

As a result, the following policies are in place for all golf events, leagues, education classes and social events:

If the Chapter cancels an event, all payments will be refunded in full via check from the LPGA Amateurs Seattle Chapter Treasurer.

Cancellations by participants must be submitted in writing and emailed to: 
* WEEKEND GOLF or SOCIAL events at events@lpgaamateursseattle.com
* WEEKDAY LEAGUE days or EDUCATION events at programs@lpgaamateursseattle.com

Cancellations received prior to the posted event registration deadline will be refunded in full less a $5 transaction fee via check from the LPGA Amateurs Seattle Chapter Treasurer.

Cancellations received after the posted event registration deadline will not be refunded.  If you cannot attend, you may have someone attend in your place; please notify the event coordinator of this change and coordinate repayment directly with your substitute.

9-HOLE LEAGUE PLAY
Starts the week of April 20th

Leagues are the best way to get out and play on a regular basis. We offer two types of leagues: pre-registered and drop-in.

Pre-registered leagues have pre-arranged tee times at selected courses for a 5 or 6-week session.  There are 3 sessions to the season and you register for each session at a time.  Just sign up, then show up!

Drop-in leagues are an opportunity to decide a couple days prior by contacting the league coordinator and showing up to pay and play. 

E-mails are linked to the League Coordinators name.
