Are you a good golfer?
We’re not necessarily talking about your golf score but are you thinking of others when you play golf or book a tee time?
We’d like to offer a couple of reminders for all of us this busy golf season. We have had a few challenges with frost delays and rainy weather. Both of those out of our control but we would like to be able to service ALL our golfing residents to the best of our abilities. So please, if you know that your tee time will not be used, contact the pro shop to cancel or adjust your tee time. There could be other residents who might want to play, regardless of the weather conditions.
Peak times and popular days are 7:30 a.m to noon Monday through Friday. Please be considerate of those who might not be fortunate enough to get a morning tee time. If you are cancelling your tee time or modifying the number of players in your group, please do so as soon as possible so our residents who are looking to play may have an opportunity to book that open tee time.
Also, it is the golfers responsibility to sand/seed divots, repair ball marks (yours and one other is a good habit to get into) and to rake bunkers. The Player’s Assistants and golf course maintenance are there to help in this area but can’t address all of the responsibilities of the player during the course of the day. One of the reasons that our courses stay in great shape is because we ALL pitch in and do our part.
Todd Patty and his staff spend a lot of time and effort in maintaining our 7 courses. They do an exceptional job, but anything we can do to help only makes the courses better especially during the months of January and February when the cooler weather stifles the growing of grass.
Pace of play is another component of being a good golfer. Keeping up with the group in front of you is the key to a quick, evenly paced round. The PA’s are there to help in this area but can only help if ALL parties are willing. The course will play at the same rate as the slowest group on the course. Good golfers are aware of their pace and position on the golf course at all times.
Thank you for your cooperation and consideration of all golfers on our Sun City West courses.
