BRINGING GUESTS As a member of the golf club you are allowed to bring guests with certain restrictions. All non-member guests shall be limited to 6 times per calendar year. You are responsible for your guest and any damages caused by the guest while they are on the club premises. Make sure they are aware of the dress code before they arrive at the club. It is also your responsibility to come to the pro shop and check-in your guest. Guest greens fees include a "warm-up" size range bucket. If you bring a guest out to use the range only you must purchase their practice balls.
DRIVING RANGE & PRACTICE GREEN As with the golf course, certain etiquette and rules should be followed when using these areas. You should always leave these areas in better condition than when you arrived. We are all "custodians" of our club, please lead by example whenever the opportunity arises.
When on the greens, please do not run or stand close to a hole. It’s okay to have putting contests but if other people are practicing be courteous. Only practice chipping in the two designated areas.
Our driving range area is rather small so we need your help in keeping it functioning smoothly. If people are waiting finish your bucket at your normal pace then let them have your spot. Always use the sand and seed mix to fill in your divot holes when you are done. For your safety and the safety of others, only hit from between the ropes. This also helps maintain turf conditions. Try not to hit ball into the wooded area along the right side of the range. Take advantage of the many targets, it is better practice to play to a target.
No matter how poorly you think you are playing you should never curse and slam or throw clubs.
ON THE GOLF COURSE All etiquette requirements as described in Section 1 of the USGA Rules of Golf Booklet must be followed. In caring for the golf course always replace your divots in fairways and fix your ball marks on the greens. If you can’t find your ball mark fix someone else’s! When teeing off please be careful not take divots with practice swings and please sand your divots after hitting your shot. Always rake the bunkers after playing from them and place the rake where it will not interfere with play. When on the greens do not twist your feet in any manner, walk normally to prevent damage from spike marks. If you are using a pull cart keep it 30 feet from all greens and tees.
The pace of play standard for Kitsap Golf and Country Club is that a foursome should complete nine holes in two hours or less and 18 holes in four hours or less. You must keep pace with the group in front of you. If you are invited to play through and choose to do so, proceed as quickly as you can and be sure to thank the group that is letting you play through. Keep in mind the following tips to assist your pace of play:
- Always be ready when it’s your turn to play - When approaching greens, place your golf bag on the side nearest the next tee - Do not pull any hand carts directly across greens or tees to save time - Only momentary stops between nines are permitted - Always follow the instructions of the pro shop or course marshal
You should never hit into a group playing in front of you. If you accidentally do this, walk forward and apologize immediately. Always yell "fore!" if your ball might hit another player.
Practicing is not permitted on the Golf Course.
GOLF CARTS You must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license to rent or drive a golf cart belonging to the Pro Shop. A privately owned golf cart may be driven by someone under the age of 18 only if accompanied by an adult.
