Tee Time Policy
All players are responsible for knowing their tee times and being at the course at least thirty minutes prior (preferably 60 minutes!) prior to their tee times.
Players and Caddies need to be at the starter 10 minutes before their allotted tee time, to go over the rules of competition for their division and to allow the first player in the group to get ready to tee off on time.
Penalty for Breach of Rule 5.3a: Disqualification, except in these three cases:
Exception 1 – Player Arrives at Starting Point, Ready to Play, No More Than Five Minutes Late: The player gets the general penalty applied to his or her first hole.
Exception 2 – Player Starts No More Than Five Minutes Early: The player gets the general penalty applied to his or her first hole.
Exception 3 – Committee Decides that Exceptional Circumstances Prevented Player from Starting on Time: There is no breach of this Rule and no penalty.
