On-Course Rules

Golf Course & Cart Rules

Our beautiful golf course are always kept in great condition by our course superintendent Pete Beblavy, and it is important for all our customers to help us all maintain the conditions for everyone to enjoy. Repairing ball marks and replacing divots are two very simple ways for all players to help maintain great playing conditions. Unrepaired ball marks and unreplaced or unfilled divots will take weeks to heal, but if they are repaired and replaced properly, after only a few days, the playing surface will be healed and the scars gone. We have provided soil and seed mix on all our golf carts and ask all players to fill divots on the course that cannot be replaced in full.

Golf cart traffic is the major contributor to excessive turf wear and damage to weak or wet areas on the course. Daily cart restrictions posted at the golf shop and/or on the first tee must be strictly abided by in order to minimize and excessive damage or wear to the course. All cart directional signs, rope lines, or any other means to direct cart traffic must be strictly followed or customers will be subject to losing cart privileges for the round or longer.

Blue Shamrock Pace of Play Policy:

One of the biggest challenges in golf today is dealing with pace of play. For everyone's enjoyment, Blue Shamrock's pace of play policy for an 18 hole round is 4 hours 15 minutes or less. Blue Shamrock will have golf course "ambassadors" to assist groups on the course to maintain this pace. Common sense and ready golf are two very important keys to playing your round as efficiently as possible. "Honors" certainly do not have to be kept if players are not ready to play, and common sense in golf cart usage will go a long way in saving time on the course. A general rule of thumb is if a par 3 is completely open, or if the group in front on a par 4 or par 5 is on the green when you reach the tee, you are out of position and must speed up. The most important thing to remember about pace of play is your position with the group in front of you , not behind you! Finally, cell phone use is also becoming an increasing problem for slow play on a course. A phone call or a text can wait until you are done with your round unless it is an absolute emergency, and always remember to silence your phones on the course!
