1. Practices M-TH; Fridays off/optional unless there is a match. See Match Schedules for Dates, places,and times.
2. We play in the MetroEastConference. Varsity currently has 7 Matches and 3 Tournaments; JV full schedule yet to be determined.
3. Each match has 6 players from each school. In a match, the top 4/6 players scores from each team are counted to determine a winner. LOWEST score wins.
4. Players can also win individual honors for their own personal scores.

PACE OF PLAY: TIPS TO MOVE ALONG
1. Walk at a brisk pace.
2. Never take more than 1 practice swing. You have 40 seconds to get your shot off!
3. Play ready golf. Continue hitting toward the hole, as long as it is safe, and always announce to fellow players.
4. Walk directly to your ball and start preparing right away.
5. Place bag to the side of the ball and always move bag at each shot.
6. When approaching green, place bag to the side of green the next tee box is on, but out of play.
7. On the green mark ball, clean and place back down if furthest from the hole.
8. Always putt out if not standing in another player's line.
9. The first one to putt out, go and stand by flagstick to be ready to put it in the hole when everyone completes putting.
10. Go directly to tee box after declaring score.
11. All scoring should be done at next tee box NOT AT THE GREEN. Say your score OUTLOUD!
12. Always play a provisional ball if you feel the ball is lost or out of bounds. (GOING IN THE WATER IS NOT A PLACE TO USE A PROVISIONAL BALL)
