2023 Men's Master Pennants

Proudly Sponsored by Tyrepower, West Ryde Smash Repairs and Bennelong Legal Services.

The North Ryde Golf Club Master Pennant Team played their first round on Sunday, 14 May against Campbelltown Golf Club. This match certainly had tense moments before we were able to come out on top with a 6.5 to 1.5 result. 

This coming weekend on Sunday, we will be competing against Campbelltown Golf Club at Campbelltown where we will be expecting another tight encounter.

Keep Play Moving

As mentioned last week, with shorter daylight hours it's time for all members to focus on their pace of play and work together. Please refer to the attached link for the Club's Pace of Play Policy CLICK HERE. Our goal is to complete rounds in under 4 hours, 15 minutes. 

See below some suggestions to play Ready Golf, keeping your game moving.  With safety in mind, Ready Golf indicates that players should play when they are ready to do so, rather than adhering strictly to the "farthest from the hole plays first". When Ready Golf is being encouraged, players have to act sensibly to ensure that playing out of turn does not endanger other players.

While most of the following points are quite obvious, their inclusions remain relevant.
Some examples of ready golf are:

  • Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is taking time to assess their options.
  • Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait.
  • Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being ready to play.
  • Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball. 
  • Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else's line. 
  • Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is still farthest from the hole but is delayed due to smoothing the bunker.
  • When a player's ball has gone over the back of a green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball.
  • Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off.

Some more tips to avoid slow play:

  • On the tee and with every shot watch the other balls being played. If the shot is wayward watch it until it stops and pick a landmark.
  • If you suspect you have hit a shot out of bounds or it may be lost, then hit a provisional ball immediately. If a ball is lost it is good etiquette to help search for it. Often though you can play your own shot before assisting.
  • When approaching the green, position your clubs on the way to the next green.
  • Never leave your bag at the front of the green. 
  • When chipping around the green, carry both the club you'll be chipping with plus your putter.
  • If a player has skinned a shot out of a bunker through the green and you have played your own shot, offer to smooth the bunker for them. This is good manners and etiquette.
  • On the putting green every effort should be made to putt out. Marking and replacing of the ball for a short putt is a time waster.
  • Begin reading the green and lining up putts as soon as you reach the green.
  • Excessive practice swings take time. In most instances one practice swing should be sufficient.
