How is your golf course etiquette?

Leaving the course as you would like to find it is one of golf’s guiding principles.  Filling divots, repairing ball marks, smoothing bunkers, and following all cart restrictions are some of the activities required for good golf etiquette.

SaddleBrooke One residents have a strong history of demonstrating a willingness to help make sure the course is as good as it could be.  The Adopt-a-Hole program was a strong helping hand in years past when the courses really needed some extra attention. 

The busy nature of the SaddleBrooke One courses will always present opportunities for additional contributions from SaddleBrooke One golfers and their guests.  Golfers are encouraged to participate at the level of their choosing.  Whether it’s practicing proper golf etiquette during your round or spending some time filling divots and repairing ball marks after hours on your favorite hole; it all makes a difference. 

Your fellow SaddleBrooke One golfers and the golf course maintenance team appreciate your continued efforts in making the SaddleBrooke One golf experience the best it can be.

New Local Rule for 2018

Modification of Score Card Penalty

The Exception to Rule 6-6d is modified as follows:

Exception: If a competitor returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken due to failure to include one or more penalty strokes that, before returning his score card, he did not know he had incurred, he is not disqualified. In such circumstances, the competitor incurs the penalty prescribed by the applicable Rule, but there is no additional penalty for a breach of Rule 6-6d. This Exception does not apply when the applicable penalty is disqualification from the competition.

New Local Rule for 2017

ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT OF A BALL ON THE PUTTING GREEN

When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.

The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.

This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.

Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location.  A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.
