Course employees have the authority to enforce the rules of the course, control tee-off placement and golf cart usage. Please do not switch times with other groups at the tee-box.

*Reservation organizers are responsible for:   the booking and ensuring anyone in their group gives the course sufficient notice if they are unable to make their tee time.  The course reserves the right to charge a ‘No Show’ fee of $12.00 if a member of your group does not show or gives insufficient cancellation notice; any individual or group that ‘no shows’ three (3) times or more will be required to prepay for their booking;  the organizers are to ensure everyone in their group comply with all course rules and etiquette.

For the safety of our employees and golfers it is mandatory everyone wear a mask or face shield from the greeting center until they reach the first tee.

Ready Golf refers to a method for golfers to speed up play.  Simply put, it means that each golfer within a group hits when ready, rather than waiting for the golfer farthest from the hole to play first.
