LONGCLIFFE HAS ADOPTED THE PRINCIPLES OF 'READY GOLF'
~ No honour - except in match play - the first player ready plays.
~ Take no longer than 40 seconds over your shot.
~ If you are ready to play, and it is safe, then play.
~ Play your ball before helping to look for a lost ball.
~ Around the green, play rather than wait for others to chip.
AVOID SLOW PLAY AND DEVELOP THE 'READY GOLF' HABIT.
