READY GOLF

 

To play Ready Golf, a foursome would:

 

1.   At the Tee let the first player ready hit his ball – no honors.  (Remember to watch each other’s tee shot, so that time is not wasted if the ball is not located immediately).  If a player believes his ball may be lost (outside a environmental hazard, in the heavy fescue grass or out of bounds) to save time he should play a provisional ball.

2.   If there is a gap or opening between your group and the one in front, the first person that holes out goes to the next tee and hits while the rest putt out. (If a person needs help seeing the tee ball, two people proceed to the next tee)

3.   In the fairway go to your ball and hit when it is safe to do so without waiting for the person farthest from the hole to hit.

4.   When riding in a cart drop one player at his ball with the other going to his, when practicable, then hit, pickup the partner and move on for the next stroke.

5.   Always place your golf cart or bag so that you can leave the green from the rear or side toward the next tee. Not in front so that you obstruct the next group.

6.   If a player needs to rake a greenside bunker someone on the green should be putting not waiting for the raker to putt his ball.

7.   Line-up and look over your putt while the other players are doing the same and be ready to putt when it is your turn.  When practicable you should putt out, not mark and wait. (See 2 above)

8.   Mark your scorecard at the next tee while waiting your turn to tee off.

 Local Rules for Callippe Senior Golf Club Tournaments

USGA Rules of Golf and the following Course and Club Local Rules govern play:

Callippe Preserve Golf Course Local Rules

1. Areas of the Course Requiring Preservation; Environmentally Sensitive Areas: Please do not enter Environmentally Sensitive Areas (ESAs) that are on or adjoin the course. These areas are defined as a Water Hazard and identified by Red or Yellow stakes with Green tops. The player must, under penalty of one stroke, proceed under Rule 26-1.

2. Out-of-Bounds: Defined by the inside edges at ground level of white stakes, by perimeter fences, and paved perimeter roads.

3. Staked Trees: If swing or stance is apt to touch, or ball lies in a basin around a staked tree, ball must be lifted and dropped within one club-length of the nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole; no penalty.

4. French Drains and Flower Beds: Drop within one club-length of nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole; no penalty.

 

Callippe Senior Golf Club Local Rules

1. Aeration Holes: A ball lying in an aeration hole through the green may be lifted, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay, no nearer the hole. On the putting green a ball that comes to rest in an aeration hole may be placed at the nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole.

2. Distance Measuring Devices: A player may obtain distance information by using a distance measuring device. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance measuring device to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., elevation changes, wind speed, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3.

3. Drop Zones: Players may optionally use the designated Drop Zone nearest to where their ball was determined to enter a hazard; dropping per Appendix I, Part A, Section 6.

4. Embedded Ball: Through the green, a ball that is embedded in its own pitch mark in the ground may be lifted, without penalty, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay, no nearer the hole.

5. Environmental Hazard: A fair ball requiring, with normal stance, a player to enter an ESA or his intended swing to enter the ESA, the player must lift and drop the ball within one club-length of the nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole; no penalty.

6. Provisional Ball: If there is doubt whether a ball is in or is lost in a water hazard, the player may play another ball provisionally under any of the applicable options in Rule 26-1. If the original ball is found outside the water hazard, the player must continue play with it. If the original ball is found in the water hazard, the player may either play the original ball as it lies or continue with the ball played provisionally under Rule 26-1. If the original ball is not found or identified within the five-minute search period, the player must continue with the ball played provisionally.

7. Slow Play: The player must add two penalty strokes to his score for hole #18 when notified by the Timer that he has breached Rule 6-7.

8. Spirit of the Game: Any player requesting a Blue placard for an existing medical condition must drive his own cart. If his cart passenger does not have an existing medical condition, the passenger must abide by cart-restricted areas. The intent of the Blue placard is to assist those players who are physically challenged—this

Revised 1/1/2016

 

privilege isn’t extended to a passenger without a medical condition as it creates an unfair advantage over fellow competitors.

9. Stones in Bunkers: Stones in bunkers are movable obstructions (Rule 24-1 applies).

 

Winter Rules

When notified by the Starter that Winter Rules are in effect, the following Local Rules apply:

1. Ball Lost in Casual Water: If it is known or virtually certain that a ball has entered casual water but cannot be identified or retrieved without unreasonable effort, the player may abandon the ball and proceed under Rule 25-1b (Decision 25-1/1).

2. Preferred Lies: A ball lying through the green may be lifted without penalty and cleaned. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position. Having lifted the ball, he must place it on a spot within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay, that is not in a hazard and not on a putting green. The player may place his ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed (Rule 20-4). If the ball fails to come to rest on the spot on which it was placed, Rule 20-3d applies. If the ball when placed comes to rest on the spot on which it is placed and it subsequently moves, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies, unless the provisions of any other Rule apply. If the player fails to mark the position of the ball before lifting it, moves the ball-marker prior to putting the ball back into play or moves the ball in any other manner, such as rolling it with a club, he incurs a penalty of one stroke (Appendix I, Part A, Section 3b).

************************************************************************************************************

HANDICAP FLAG USE

THOSE PLAYERS WHO USE HANDICAP FLAGES SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHERE THEY PARK AROUND THE GREENS.  DO NOT PARK INFRONT OF A GREEN WHERE A BALL CAN LAND SHORT AND RUN UP TO THE GREEN.  STAY AT LEAST 20 FEET FROM THE GREEN.
