Pace of Play Tips

The following tips will enhance your tournament experience and can keep your group from receiving a red card during your round.

  • Show identifying marks on your golf ball to fellow competitors.
  • Get your yardage before it is your turn to play.
  • Read your putt before it is your turn to play.
  • Recognize when someone will need the flag tended or your ball marked.
  • Get to your next shot without delay. It is more important what you do between shots than during.
  • Be aware of who is away. If you're not sure, ask.
  • Know where your group is in relation to the group in front of you.
  • Anyone can search for a lost ball. Have your parents and spectators one shot ahead of your group to spot errant shots.
  • If a ball is not found after a brief search, the fellow competitors should go forward and play their shots to the green and let the player and spectators continue the search.
  • If your ball might be lost outside a water hazard or out of bounds, play a Provisional Ball (Rule 27-2).
  • If a situation arises and you do not know how to proceed, play a second ball under Rule 3-3 and continue play (stroke play only). You must report the facts to the AJGA staff afterwards regardless of score.
  • Place golf bag off the putting green near the next teeing ground. This avoids holding up the following group to hit while a player retrieves their golf bag from the front of the green.

Thanks for your excellent coordination and hard work in putting everything together! Even though the 1st event was rained out, the event was professionally run. - Mark Durbin

I do appreciate what you started with this tour last year and again this year. It has given my daughter some different courses to play, meet different girls and most of your events work well in regards to our events not during the same time. - Brad Eib
