Playing golf is most enjoyable when all players observe a common set of standards for etiquette and pace of play.
League golf is as much social as it is competitive. The courtesy you show others by following a few simple standards of conduct is as equally important as adhering to the Rules of Golf.
Players usually prefer silence when playing their shots. Please also be respectful of the residents bordering the course when conversing and when searching for errant balls. Please keep your language appropriate.
Refrain from advancing to a tee box when the group ahead is present and err on the side of caution when playing on their heels to avoid hitting into them.
On the greens, be attentive to where you stand and your movements when others are putting. Avoid standing on putting lines or within another player's direct line of sight.
Another demonstration of respect for others, including our hard-working grounds crew, is to:
1. Rake bunkers.
2. Observe the 90-degree cart rule whenever possible.
3. Repair ball marks on the Greens. This hyperlink will direct you to a short USGA video on How to Correctly Repair a Ball Mark.
4. Fill your divots. The type of Fairway turf at SBR results in displaced turf that falls apart, so rather than replacing the turf, we must fill the void with sand—not too much sand as that can retard healing. This hyperlink will direct you to a short USGA video on How to Correctly Repair a Divot.
