Ready Golf at Yelverton
Ready Golf Policy

Slow play is often cited as a reason for not enjoying a round of golf, despite the sport’s many health and social benefits.
Yelverton Golf Club has launched a campaign aimed at cutting the amount of time it takes for the average four-mile walk associated with 18 holes of golf.
Did you know that if each player in a four-ball takes 5 seconds less to play each shot, the round time can be improved by over 25 minutes?
'Ready Golf' sets down a series of guidelines to help players speed up their play without detracting from the pleasure of their round.
Ready Golf doesn't mean rushing.  It just means better management of your and your group’s time between shots. If you prepare in advance, you can take your time and play Ready Golf.
At its core is the principle that each player within a group, hits their shot or takes their putt as soon as they are ready and it is safe to do so.

Ready Golf Guidelines
These guidelines are to remind every player what they can do to reduce their round time, which in essence are:

•    Tee off and / or hit your shot as soon as the group ahead or the Green is clear.
•    The player who is ready (not necessarily the one with the honour or the player who is furthest away) should hit, if it is safe to do so.
•    Walk to your ball as soon as possible, so that you can choose your club and think about the shot in advance, do not wait until it’s your turn to begin this process.
•    Don't "cluster" at one ball. Walk down the sides of the fairway to reach your ball and then approach it from the side.
•    Let the others know that you are hitting, then hit without delay.
•    When a ball is lost, go to your ball and hit your shot first and then go help look for the lost ball.
•    Limit lost ball search to 3 minutes, except under competition rules.
•    Study your putt while others are putting and if you are not on someone else's line continue putting until holed out.
•    If you can't score, quit putting and pick up.
