Lewis Estates Golf Course Care & Conduct

Please respect and preserve the natural setting of the course so all players can enjoy the course. Please be mindful of the following:

  • Replace divots

  • Observe pace of play requirements

Pace of Play

Golfers are expected to keep pace with the group in front of them and complete their round in under 4 ½ hours.

If you should be playing at a slower pace:

  • When you have an open hole in front of you, allow the group following to play through
  • Skip a hole, especially when directed by the Marshall

Tips to keep your pace:

  • Limit the search for lost balls to two minutes
  • If your stroke count for a hole reaches double par, pick up your ball and proceed to the next tee
  • Hit when ready, even if you are not “away”
  • After taking your first putt, continue until you hole out
  • Blue tees are recommended only for use by players with an 8 handicap or lower

The Course Marshall

  • Players MUST adhere to marshall directives
  • Be considerate of others and keep pace
  • Remember, it only takes one slow group to back up the entire golf course
