• Play from the proper tee. If your handicap index plus your age is over 90, then you should play from the gold tees. 
  • Don’t wait to tee off based on who has honors, or wait until you are the furthest from the hole to safely hit. 
  • Prepare in advance. Determine shot distance and choose your club while others are hitting.  
  • Minimize pre-shot routines including practice swings. There are statistics indicating more than one practice swing/shot adds 30 minutes or more to your round.  
  • Don’t over analyze. Don’t obsess over putting lines. Read your putt while others are putting and be ready to go when it is your turn.  
  • Hit provisional shots when your ball might be lost. There is a USGA Rule limiting searches to 3 minutes after arriving at the search location. 
  • Net Double Bogey is the maximum CCMGA score allowed.  Pick up before your next shot if it is for net double bogey. 
  • Pick up!  If you can’t improve your team’s score, then pick up and move on.
