Slow Play Policy & Tips to speed up play

To ensure all golfers enjoy their round of golf at North Ryde Golf Club, we ask you to consider your pace of play on the course.

At North Ryde Golf Club, you should complete your 18 hole round in 4 hours and 15 minutes. 

It is your group’s responsibility to keep up with the group in front.  

If you have fallen behind the group in front and are holding up the group behind, please invite the group behind to play through. 

Be Ready to Play 

You should be ready to play as soon as it is your turn to play. When on or near the putting green, leave your bags or carts just off the green on the way to the next tee. When the play of a hole has been completed, leave the putting green quickly. 

Lost Ball 

If you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, to save time, play a provisional ball. 

Players searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. They should not search for five minutes before doing so.  

Having allowed the group behind to play through, they should not continue play until the group coming through has passed and is out of range.
