PLAYER ETIQUETTE and DRESS CODE

I. ETIQUETTE - Abusive or foul language directed toward any golf course staff member will not be tolerated. This includes Rangers, Pro Shop Staff, Maintenance Personnel, Starters, DRGA Staff, etc. Anyone violating this policy will be subject to have his membership cancelled immediately without refund.

II. PLAYER IN THE WRONG FAIRWAY or GREEN - Occasionally we all hit a shot into an adjacent fairway or onto a wrong green. The DRGA rule is this: The player in front of you has the right of way. For instance; you are about to tee off on # 1 and a player on # 9 has hit into # 1 fairway within your shot range. Who has the right of way? The player playing # 9. He is in front of you. You must wait until he hits his shot and is out of range before teeing off. This rule applies to all holes during tournament play.

The purpose of this rule is to keep the field in front of you moving within their allotted time.

III. DRESS CODE - We do not have a formal dress code, but we expect all players to wear normal and appropriate attire.

IV. SPIKELESS SHOES - All members must have "spikeless" shoes for DRGA tournaments. New shoes are available with the new spikes or replacement "soft spikes" are available in the Pro Shop and most retail golf outlets. The replacement cost is nominal, $6 to $10.

V. READY GOLF - You are expected to play "ready golf". This simply means if your shot is not going to interfere by sight or sound of another player, proceed to hit. During tournaments, disregard "honors". The first player ready to tee off should do so regardless of the previous score.
