Fallen Trees

Question:


Is a fallen tree a loose impediment?


Answer:


If the stump or branch is attached to the soil or trunk, then no it is not. If it is detached then it is a loose impediment and can be carefully removed with the help of playing partners and/or spectators.


You must play the ball as it lies or claim an unplayable lie by taking a penalty drop from the nearest point of relief if you cannot safely remove the stump or branch.

Golf Course Safety Initiatives

Fellow Members:

In an attempt to mitigate, and hopefully eliminate, the ongoing problem of pedestrian traffic on the golf course involving non-members, we are requesting your assistance in reporting of problematic situations. The main area of concern is the immediate vicinity around the restaurant El Chico’s, with patrons and children utilizing the area around the ninth green. This is a serious safety concern that needs to be monitored. There have been other reports of other violations throughout the course with non-members using the course for purposes other than golf (i.e. running, biking), or of non-members actually playing the course without permission. The Rolling Hills Golf Course Executive Board would like to bring this concern to the attention of Community and Recreation Services to hopefully determine a course of action for an effective and safe resolution to the problem.

Pace of Play Etiquette

Here are some great pace-of-play etiquette rules to help everyone speed up play. These are practical suggestions we all should be thinking about.


Establishing the good etiquette habit of being ready to play when it is your turn is easy to do. By doing so, you will never feel rushed to play your shot and you will always play at an acceptable pace.



  1. Be Ready to Play - Your tun begins when the golfer playing before you strikes their ball. When are first in the rotation, your turn begins when the group in front has fully cleared.

  2. Golf Gloves - Put your glove on before your turn, not during your turn. Same for taking it off.

  3. Distance - Determine distance before your turn. Time spent calculating distance during your turn (ie using a range finder) can delay your group.

  4. Club Selection - Choose your club before it's your turn to play.

  5. Putting - Begin to determine the line of the putt before it's your turn. If you must read the putt from the other side of the hole, please do this (whenever possible) before your turn.

  6. Practice Swings - Who needs them... If you must take a pratice swing, please take no more than two. You are taking way too long if you take more. The USGA suggests only one practice swing max.

  7. Golf Carts - Do not site idly in your cart before your turn. Ride or walk to your ball without delay. Sitting in your cart watching your partner hit when you should be preparing to play will slow your group down.

  8. Errant / Lost Shots - Use good judgement and be considerate. If you're not in a tournament, and you're having one of those rounds, do everything you can to speed up pace. Take a penalty after a quick search, or pick up when reaching your max handicap score.

  9. Play from the Appropriate set of Tees - Please consider the set  of tees your group chooses to play. Teeing it forward will help play on pace, and increase enjoyment.

  10. Ready Golf - If no one in your group is ready to play and you are, please go ahead and take your turn.
