1.  Adjacent Tee Boxes:  When two groups meet at adjacent tee boxes (Holes #1 and #17, and Holes #5 and    #8), the group that is farther along (#8 and #17) have the right of way and will play first.  Please allow the appropriate group to tee off before proceeding.
2.  Please enter all sand traps from the LOW side.  Always rake and repair sand traps after playing your shot and prior to your next shot.  Rakes should be left within the trap.
3.  Golf carts must be kept at least 30 yards from all greens and tee boxes unless the cart is on the cart path.
4.  Holes number 10 and 16 are CART PATH ONLY.  Do not drive your cart on the grass for any reason.
