Fairfield Golfers Club Rules & Etiquette

Fairlfield’s rules have been established to speed up play and to make everyone’s game more enjoyable! The rules are as follows:

  1. Winter rules are in effect at all times;
  2. Mulligan allowed on tee shot on first hole only;
  3. Ball may be dropped 2 club lengths from any tree, rock or roadway (no penalty);
  4. Lost ball, unplayable lie, ball in water or bush or out of bounds, 1 stroke penalty;
  5. Play ready golf. Speed up play by hitting and putting when ready;
  6. Any putt of one foot or less is a "gimmie". Count 1 stroke;
  7. Abide by local club rules;
  8. For Tournament Use Only: Total strokes to be recorded for each hole. No pickup after 2, 3 or 4 over par. No Mulligans. No "Gimmies".
  9. HAVE FUN!

Some other hints to help speed up play:

  • Use the time you spend getting your ball to think about the next shot, your yardage and the club selection;
  • Begin reading the green and lining up putts as soon as you reach the green. Don’t wait until it’s your turn to putt;
  • If using a cart on a cart-path-only day, take more than one club with you when you walk from the cart to your ball;
  • Do not spend an excessive amount of time looking for lost balls, even if they are a Christmas gift;
  • Record scores when you reach the next tee;
  • Leave your bags or golf carts to the side of the green, and in the direction of next tee.
