    It is the intent of these Golf Rules to ensure the maximum enjoyment and safety of all golfers at Oak Hills.  All Members are encouraged to become familiar with these rules and while having consideration for fellow Members, help the Green Committee in the enforcement of golf rules.  It is hoped that the pride Members and staff take in Oak Hills will help in the attractiveness of our Club.

    General

    1. Rules of the United States Golf Association along with any local rules set by the Green Committee, or the Director of Golf will be in effect for all play.  Local rules will be published periodically by the Director of Golf and will be available in the Golf Shop or on the scorecard.
    2. The golf course will be open for play at 7:30 AM, Tuesday through Sunday.  The golf course will be closed on Monday, except for Memorial Day, Labor Day and Presidents’ Day.  A Sunday holiday, as observed by the banks and courts, will be honored on Monday.  The Club and course will be open on these days and closed Tuesday.

      During the summer months, the Golf Course Superintendent may allow the course to open at an earlier time.  The exact time will be published monthly in the Club newsletter and will be posted on the Bulletin Board outside of the Golf Shop.

    3. On the days when the course is closed, all golf facilities, including the practice range and putting green, are closed.
    4. No jogging, walking or bicycle riding on the golf course is permitted when the course is open for play.

    Responsibilities

    1. All Members, the Head Golf Professional, the Assistant Professionals, the Golf Course Superintendent and his staff are responsible for reporting any violations of the golf course rules to the Director of Golf.  The Director of Golf shall relay the report to the Green Committee for appropriate action.
    2. Each Member is responsible for the conduct of his/her guests, and if a guest violates the golf rules, the Member shall be held fully accountable.
    3. Each Member is responsible for the turning in of an accurate score following each eighteen hole round.  The Green Committee shall be responsible for the establishment of handicap procedures.  Any player who wishes to participate in any club event must have an established handicap.

      The committee at its sole discretion may determine the handicaps of participants for club sponsored events based on facts presented to the committee.

      Any player failing to return a completed scorecard after play may have a score equal to his/her lowest score of the last twenty posted to their handicap.  All tournament scores will be posted by the Golf Shop.

    Starting Times

    1. Regulations of play and starting times shall be the responsibility of the Green Committee, the Director of Golf and the Golf Course Superintendent.
    2. Reservations for starting times shall be made by contacting the Golf Shop by phone.  Times for Saturday play will be taken the preceding Wednesday at 7:30 AM.  Times for Sunday play will be taken the preceding Thursday at 7:30 AM.  Reservations for weekday times will be taken the preceding Friday at 7:30 AM.  If a holiday falls on a Monday, times may be made the preceding Friday at 7:30 AM.

    6. Individuals who do not have a game may call or come to the Golf Shop in order for the professional staff or starter to find them a game.  Oak Hills encourages players without games to follow this procedure and the staff will do everything possible to find a player a game, while giving consideration to the wishes of players with the tee times.
    7. Discretion is vested in the Director of Golf or starter to accommodate groups of Members who have failed to get a starting time.  The Director of Golf or starter will only be allowed such discretion when there is a place for such a group and Members who have starting times are not unduly inconvenienced.
    8. Pace of Play – All players are encouraged to play an eighteen hole round in not less than a three and one-half hour pace and not more than a four hour pace.  If a group falls out of position (one hole or more behind the group in front and over a four hour pace), the slow group must invite the group behind to play through.  When play is delayed by a lost ball, the group playing behind shall be invited to play through when such action would speed up play of the field.

Any Member or guest riding in a privately owned cart must pay the same cart fee as is charged for the use of the Club’s carts.  He or she, too, must follow the same rules and regulations applicable to the carts provided by the Club, which includes registering with the Golf Pro Shop before beginning play.

      Golf Course Care

      Courtesy on the Golf Course

      1. Safety – Prior to playing a stroke or making a practice swing, the player should ensure that no one is standing close by or in a position to be hit by the club, the ball, or any flying object due to the stroke or swing.
      2. Stopping after nine holes – Players finishing nine holes of play must continue without undue delay.  A group which delays play through nine holes will forfeit their position on the golf course, and must only begin play as directed by the golf staff or starter.
      3. Do not stand close to, move or talk when a player is about to hit.  Do not stand in the line of another player or close to the hole as another player is about to hit.
      4. Go immediately to your ball.  Make your club selection, and be prepared to hit when it is your turn.
      5. When the play of a hole is completed, players should immediately leave the putting surface.  Scores should be recorded after reaching the next tee.
      6. In the interest of all, players should play without delay.  An 18-hole round should be played in no more than a 4-hour pace.  If a group falls more than one hole behind, they should allow a faster following group to play through.
      7. Players searching for a lost ball should allow the following group to play through if such action would speed up play for the entire field.
      8. Please be considerate of other groups on the course.  Do not shout or use conduct that will affect the game of other players on the course.
