After consultation with the EGU and the R&A the Competitions and Handicap Committee has decided to adopt the guidelines issued by these bodies regarding pace of play.
Using these guidelines, and after analysing pace of play in competition golf, an additional 15 minutes has been added for golf in competition play.
Pace of play guidelines are maximum times to play golf in the following formats:
|Format||Competition Golf||Social Golf|
|Four Balls||4 Hours 15 Minutes or less||4 Hours or less|
|Three Balls||4 Hours or less||3 Hours 45 Minutes or less|
|Two Balls||3 Hours 45 Minutes or less||3 Hours 30 Minutes or less|
With the aim of improving the pace of play at SWGC we are asking golfers to play ‘Ready Golf’ when not playing in a qualifying competition.
Additional action may be taken by the Competitions and Handicap Committee if any players lose their place on the golf course and are playing behind the established pace of play.
