Rio Hondo Golf Club Policies

Pace of Play

In order to improve Pace of Play and make it enjoyable for all golfers, please adhere to the following:

  • Keep pace with the group in front of you!
  • Always play ready golf.
  • Record scores at the next tee.
  • Limit time for searching for lost balls to 2-3 minutes.
  • If there is doubt that a tee-shot is lost or out of bounds, please play a provisional ball. If ball is not found within 2-3 minutes, please proceed to provisional ball.
  • Players assistants may, during the course of a round, ask a group to speed their pace of play. All groups will be given one warning for slow play, after which corrective action will be taken and may include, but not limited to, changing tees being played, skipping holes to regain position, or in extreme cases be removed from course. All cases of moving holes or removal from the golf course will be at the sole discretion of the Golf Professional in charge at the time, and rain checks will not be given to groups for holes missed under these circumstances.
