Pace of play

Member survey results show that one of the most important aspects of your golfing experience is pace of play. At Le Maître, a nice enjoyable round for 4 players should take about 4 hours 15 minutes, which includes a couple minutes stop at the 9 ½. Many players have the ability to play in 3 hours 45 minutes, but we don't expect all groups to be able to follow this pace. You might say that we're at the golf course to relax, have a good time with friends and get some exercise in the sun, so why rush!? Because nobody enjoys waiting to hit every shot and spending 5 hours on the golf course, and if everyone in the group is aware of the objective, it should be a pleasure to get around the course in 4 hours.

If your group is having trouble completing a round in acceptable time, here are a few tips to help you pick up the pace:

  • Make an effort to move faster and walk faster between shots - golf is a sport!
  • Pay attention to the players in your group so you're ready to play when it's your turn - there's no need to finish your conversation, you'll have lots of time as you walk or ride to your ball.
  • Decide on the 1st tee to play "ready golf" - you hit when you're ready!
  • Don't throw grass in the air 5 times to see if the wind is shifting, whatever direction it's coming from, take an extra club, it's rarely a mistake
  • Don't think golf is played like the pros you watch on TV every weekend. They play for their livelihood and each shot is worth several thousand dollars - and by the way, there is rarely a round on the PGA Tour that's played in less than 5 hours (in twosomes!)
  • If you imitate Patrick Cantley's routine before every shot, you won't finish the round before dark.

    It shouldn't be necessary to have a marshall on the course to ask our members to pick up the pace, it's just a matter of being aware of where the group in front of you is and keeping pace with them. Thank you for your support.

    Play well!
