Pace of Play

The official time for an eighteen hole round at Hampton Hall Golf Club will be 4 hours and 12 minutes. Here are a few suggestions to help your group maintain its pace of play:

  • Your group should be at your starting tee at least 5 minutes before your tee time.

  • Play ready golf-defined as doing your pre-shot routine while another is hitting their ball.

  • Keep within 2 shots of the group in front of you.

  • Take two or three clubs with you to your ball to avoid the need to come back to your bag.

  • Size up your putt while another golfer is putting, without disrupting their putt or line.

  • Appoint one person in your group to be the timer for your pace of play.

  • Check your pace with the time printed on the bottom of your scorecard.
