Meridian Hills Conduct

Our serene location inspires the best play in competitive players and casual beginners alike.

Making the Game Enjoyable for Everyone

At Meridian Hills Golf Club, we recognize that not all golfers are created equal. With such a wide array of golfers, we ask that all players follow some basic course rules and etiquette.

Pace of Play

Slow play is the bane of all golfers and golf courses. At Meridian Hills Golf Club we expect each hole to take no longer than 10 minutes to play for a group of 4 players. At 10 minutes per hole a round of golf should take no longer than 3 hours to complete with many rounds played in 2 ½ hours or less.

Tips to Increase Pace of Play

  • Always keep up to the group in front of you. When you reach the tee of you next hole, the group in front of you should be walking to the next hole.
  • Be aware of the 10 minute per hole time and move to the next hole if you are over 10 minutes.
  • Set a maximum limit of strokes per hole. Meridian Hills suggests no more than 10 strokes per hole but you can set a lower limit such as 8 or double par (6).
  • Let shorter hitters tee off first.
  • Limit practice swings to only one.
  • Be ready to hit or putt when it is your turn.
  • Putt continuously when convenient. Do not mark short putts on green.
  • Enter scores at the next tee.
  • Park your carts and clubs at the side of the green closest to the next tee.
