Meadow Hills Men’s Golf Club
Pace of Play Policy
It is expected that ALL groups play their round in 4 hours and 20 minutes or less. Tee times will be at 9 or 10 minute intervals, and the starter will ensure that each group starts at their designated start time using the official clock located on the 1st tee box.
There will be three checkpoints where the TIME CARD in the group will need to be timestamped. After the 9th hole and after 18 hole. Do not punch until all players have completed the hole. Pace of play penalties will be assessed, as follows, without exception based on the official start time and the latest punch of each group after their round:
• If the first group of the tournament plays the first 18 holes in more than 4 hours and 5 minutes, each player in the group will receive a 1-stroke penalty.
• All players in any pairing group that finishes the front 9 in more than 2 hours and 10 minutes AND is more than 10 minutes behind the group in front of them will receive a 1-stroke penalty per player assessed on hole 9. If the group manages to catch up and finish in position after the 18th hole, the 1-stroke penalty from the front 9 will be rescinded.
• All players in any pairing group that finishes 18 holes in more than 4 hours 20 min AND is more than 12 minutes behind the group in front of them will receive a 2-stroke penalty per player assessed on hole 18.
• Any card turned in without Three-time stamps will receive a 1-stroke penalty assessed on hole 18.
Penalties will be assessed during scoring by the tournament staff. Please do not argue with them if you receive a penalty. The policy is black and white, and the staff will be using the data that you as players will provide them based on your time stamp. If you feel your group encountered extenuating circumstances and believe a penalty waiver should be considered, please direct your appeal to the Men’s Club Board of Directors at President@meadowhills.com
