Following the rules, applying all penalties, and being honest in all aspects of play.
Playing at a prompt pace, looking out for the safety of others, and not distracting the play of another player.
Replacing divots, smoothing bunkers, repairing ball-marks, and not causing unnecessary damage to the course.
Longcliffe has adopted the principles of 'Ready Golf'. These include:
There are no hard and fast rules to ready golf, but a few sensible ideas to avoid slow play and develop the 'Ready Golf' habit . If each player saves one minute on each hole (three minutes for a three ball) then a considerable amount of time can be saved.
Keep up with the match in front, not ahead of the match behind.
If you fall a hole behind allow the following match to play through.
Allow the match on a forward tee to play first.
Be quiet when another match is putting on an adjoining green.
Wait until the match on 7th green has putted out before teeing off on the 10th tee.
When walking out don't join the course on a hole when there are golfers on the preceding hole.
