Welcome to La Jolla Country Club. We are delighted to have you as our guest today. We know your round will be more enjoyable if you join us in observing the traditions described below. Please be mindful that no guest may play more than eight times in a calendar year.
Speed of Play
1. Our pace of play rating is four hours and five minutes. Please maintain your position with the group in front of yours so that your round may be completed in the allocated time or less.
2. PLAY READY GOLF. To help you finish your round in four hours, always be ready to play your next shot. This means hitting out of turn when appropriate.
3. When using a 3 & 4 bag cart attachment, please help expedite play by taking clubs with you to your next shot.
4. If at least one hole is open ahead of your group, you must allow the faster group behind you to play through.
Repair Ball Marks
Please use the Green Fix divot tool to repair ball marks on greens. Repairing a ball mark takes just ten seconds to complete. An unrepaired mark takes over two weeks to heal.
1. Tap down divot first with putter.
2. Hold tool at a 45-degree angle.
3. Just PUSH around the ball mark…do not lift, twist, or jab.
4. TAP smooth with your putter.
Use Sand to Fill Divots
Our Kikuyu grass will regerminate more rapidly if you fill in your divot with the sand provided on carts and tees.
