Pace of Play

  • Island View’s Pace of Play Policy is four hours or less.
  • Confine “practice” to putting green, driving range and chipping area.
  • Play “ready golf”. The first player ready to hit should do so if the player with honors is not ready.
  • Be ready to play when it’s your turn. As you approach your ball or wait for others to play, plan your shot and select a club.
  • To help with the search for a ball, watch the ball all the way until it stops and then line it up with a visual marker. If a ball appears to be out of bounds or lost, play a provisional ball to avoid delay.
  • Help others find lost balls, but do not spend more than five (5) minutes looking. If others are waiting, do not retrieve balls out of water, ponds or wet areas. Mark your scorecard on the next tee, not on the green.
  • Be aware of your time and make adjustments if necessary. If you are playing slow, notice if it is affecting others and work to improve your pace.
  • Slower groups must allow faster groups to play through when there is room ahead.
  • Do no leave course property to look for lost balls.
  • Excessive delay between nines is cause for losing your playing position. Continued play can only be rescheduled by the Pro Shop or starter.
  • Please keep pace with the group in front of you.

Care of the Golf Course

  • Ball marks on the green -­ please repair your ball mark, plus one other, on each green using a tee or divot repair tool.
  • Divots -­ replace displaced turf and step it down firmly, or fill divot area from sand/seed bottles provided on carts.
  • Sand Bunkers ­- before leaving bunker, carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints, leaving the rake out of the bunker away from green side.
  • Golf Bags and Handcarts ­- please do not pull handcarts, or lay golf bags, on the putting green surface. Handcarts must not be pulled across tees or greens.
  • Litter -­ please put litter in cans provided on each tee.
