Caddie Policy

Caddies are not allowed at College TOUR X events unless specifically allowed for the singular event of which you are registering.

Pace of Play

Play ready golf: The player who is ready to play - regardless of previous hole score or distance to green - has the right of way so long as they have a shot clear of all other players and spectators.

Pace of Play Factors: A group’s pace of play is based on two factors: the amount of time the group has taken to play relative to time par, and the group’s position on the golf course relative to the group ahead.

All players, spectators, volunteers, and staff members are permitted and encouraged to help shuttle all players between holes (from green to next tee). In efforts to relieve players of long walks between holes and promote positive pace of play, we ask that anyone with a rented golf cart please provide equal opportunity for rides for all players in your group.

Time Par:

The committee calculates the time a group is expected to finish each hole, and the time par is noted on the bottom of the official scorecard. A hole is complete when the flagstick is replaced in the hole after all players in the group have holed out. Each hole is assigned a predetermined amount of time, based on the hole’s par (Par 3s – 12 minutes; Par 4s – 14; Par 5s – 16). All 9-hole players are given one minute more per hole. Additional time may be added to make the turn and for certain holes or courses, at the committee’s discretion.

In Position: A group is in position when it completes a hole within 14 minutes of the group ahead. All groups are in position on the final hole of the round if they finish within 17 minutes of the group ahead. The first group to tee off does not have a position relative to the group ahead and is judged solely based on time.
Red Card (Penalty):

The group is behind the allotted time and out of position with the group ahead. A group receives a red card if it fails to meet both criteria. Each time a group receives a red card, each player in the group is penalized one stroke at the completion of the round if the entire group is not back on time par or group position pace by the next checkpoint or the completion of the round.

Rescinding a Red Card (Penalty):

Any and all prior one-stroke penalty Red Cards will be rescinded by:

(A)Regaining “in position” status with the group ahead. This requires the group to finish a checkpoint hole within 14 minutes, flagstick replaced to flagstick replaced, of the group ahead. On the final hole, the group must finish within 17 minutes of the group ahead (B) Reaching the next checkpoint or completion of the round within the allotted time par listed on the scorecard.
