Ready Golf

pin How To Speed Up Your Pace of Play on the Golf Course

Ready Golf means BEING READY to play, not playing when you're ready. Here are some simple rules.

Walk to your ball as soon as possible, so that you can choose your club and think about the shot in ADVANCE, not when it is your turn.

When driving a cart, drop off your partner first, let your partner choose his or her club, and then drive to your own ball to get READY to play.

When a ball is lost, hit your shot FIRST and then look for the lost ball.

Walk down the SIDES of the fairway to reach your ball and then APPROACH it from the center. NEVER play in a caravan, moving in a group from ball to ball.

When on the Green, line up your putt BEFORE it is your turn, and putt out immediately instead of marking, if you are not in someone else's line.
