League Rules - USGA Rules apply with the exception of all Posted Local Rules and, the following "League Rules":

  • Breakfast Ball on your First Hole Only if needed, you may hit a second tee ball. The purpose of this rule is to allow you to get off to a good start. If you hook a ball left into the woods, slice a ball across 153 etc., you may hit another ball. This rule is not meant to allow players to see how far they can hit another club etc. If your first ball is in-play, do not hit another ball.
    No Breakfast Ball on a Par 3 – if we have shotgun start for any event your Breakfast Ball will be on the next hole.
  • Provisional Lies -Tree Line To Tree Line -- width of our score card, no closer to the hole. Please use your club (roll the ball) not your hand to improve your lie under this "League" Rule. Do not pick the ball up or clean the ball unless Lift, Clean & Place is posted by the Pro Shop due to wet course conditions.
  • Lost Ball Red Stakes or White Stakes (Stroke Penalty) – areas marked by Red Stakes (lateral hazard) or White Stakes (OB) – with the help of the other players in your group, determine where the ball crossed the margin of the hazard – drop a ball two club lengths from the margin of the hazard under penalty of One Stroke. DO NOT GO BACK TO HIT ANOTHER BALL.
  • Rock & Root Rule (Fairway & Ruff Only) -- our objective is to play golf and have fun without injury or damage to our clubs. If your ball is on a rock or root or in a position that you may hit a rock or root during your swing, you may roll the ball away (ONLY THE DISTANCE REQUIRED TO ALLOW RELEIF FROM THE ROCK, ROOT ETC.) from that type of a situation without penalty under the Unplayable Lie Rule. In all other situations (in the woods etc.), USGA Rules apply. This does not apply to balls against a rock wall (i.e. behind 15th hole etc.) – unplayable – drop – 1 stroke.
  • Putts No Gimmes - put the ball in the hole. We all have a different idea of what length putt is, “a Gimme Putt”. In fairness to all players, put the ball in the hole on every hole. If the ball does not go in, you have not finished the hole.
  • Handicaps --will be a Max of 30.
  • Blind Draws
    • If we are short a player(s) as we are assigning teams, we will allow our computer program to select blind draws. The player’s who score is selected for a blind draw, will not be part of that team with regards to the Flag Pool.
