In a bid to speed up the pace of play on the course, without ruining enjoyment, the Committee have decided to adopt the philosophy of “Ready Golf” with immediate effect.
This has proven successful in other clubs, and many members of Crow Wood already use this method. Trials have shown that approx 30 mins can be taken off a typical round of golf, without affecting the quality or enjoyment of the game.
“Ready Golf” is a term used which indicates that players should play when they are ready (and it is SAFE to do so), rather than adhering strictly to the”farthest from the hole plays first” stipulation in the rules of golf.
If you are playing a STROKEPLAY or a BOUNCE match, we would encourage you to play to the “Ready Golf” philosophy.
Examples of “Ready Golf” are
We look forward to your co-operation in this matter.

Do you know the rules?
Everyone knows the rules of golf, or so they think, so for a bit of fun, we thought we pose a few teasers over the next couple of weeks. Good Luck, and we'll post the answers next week.
We thought we'd start from the beginning.
You are playing the Medal, with a tee time of 9:00. You arrive on time, and tee off on time, but your partner arrives as 9:02, after you have hit your tee shot. They play their shot immediately. What is the ruling?
