Ready Golf
Holme Hall to adopt "Ready Golf"
Members Only
Diary Event

Holme Hall Golf Club has adopted a "Ready Golf" philosophy and invites all members and visitors to adopt it too.

"Ready Golf" can best be described as set out below

If you are ready to play and its safe then play !
There is no ‘Honour’ (except Match Play) - the first player ready plays
Players should play their own ball before helping to look for a lost ball
When not playing your shot you should be preparing to play your shot

Ready Golf Examples

• 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
• 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 raking the bunker
• On approaching the Green place bag nearer to next Tee Box
• 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 and assess their shot
• Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off

"Ready Golf" has been tested in Australia where there is strong evidence that groups adopting its principles can shave 40 minutes from a round.

We welcome feedback from all parties once they have tried "Ready Golf".
