Pace of Play (and how to speed up)
A good pace of play is an important element in having a good experience at the golf course. It’s often a combination of little things not done that contribute to slow play and on-course traffic jams.
Pace of play isn’t about rushing your shots, it’s about being ready to take your shot when it’s your turn, and behaving efficiently on the golf course.
Remember, arrive at your starting tee a few minutes before your allotted tee time.
Numerous practice swings, lengthy delays lining-up putts and pacing out distances prior to club selection are not sensible practices for average golfers.
Leave your bags or golf buggies to the side of the green, and in the direction of the next tee, never in front of the green.
Be aware of golfers both in front and behind you, speed up when required and don’t hinder other golfers playing quicker than you.
Most experts say that a good pace of play not only increases enjoyment of the game, it can actually improve one’s game. Standing around on every shot allows the muscles to cool down or limbs to stiffen up. A brisk pace can help keep a golfer loose and ready to play.
Pace of play can be boiled down to two simple phrases: be prepared and be ready to play.
Use the groups ahead of you and behind you to gauge your pace. If the group that teed off directly in front of you is pulling away – putting a full holes distance between them and your group – you need to speed up. If there’s no one in front of you holding you up, but you are holding up those behind you, either speed up or allow the trailing group to play through.

Visitors comments

August 2016

"Dear sirs,
I wish to express my thanks to all who helped to make my awayday such a success. To be greeted by a member of the club who offered help should we need it, was very welcome. The course, despite the torrential downpour the night before, was in excellent condition. Many of my group had not played the course before and were very impressed with the layout of many of the holes. Food was excellent and served on time in an efficient and courteous way.
Please offer my thanks, and those of our group, to all involved."

I simply had to take time out to thank you for your hospitality on Friday & the condition of the course.
Everyone commented on how good the course was & its condition. Truly excellent & we all enjoyed it very much. We will definitely be visiting again.
Please pass our thanks onto the Greens staff & kitchen staff as the food was spot on too."

"Hi Karen and Gordon, I just wanted to say a thank you from us all for yesterday. Your course presented itself very well. Our ladies really enjoyed playing it despite the weather, it certainly didn't dampen our spirits. Please pass on our compliments to your ground staff, it was very nice seeing the lovely flowers and trees, which I'm sure you're aware, there's none at Seaton Carew.

Please also pass on our thanks to your excellent catering team, their service deserves recognition. The fayre produced was excellent

All of your staff did you proud.

Thank you once again

Kind Regards"

I'm not sure who to address this to but I wanted to write a short note of thanks to all those involved in the dinner on Saturday 15th August, booked by Jim and Hilary Taylor (my Parents).

The dinner was to celebrate Kate and I getting married this summer. The day itself was in lincolnshire and had strict numbers so my parents wanted to have another event to include those who we couldn't get to the original day.

We just wanted to say how impressed we were with the whole event. The dinner venue looked great and the food was fantastic.The bbq worked really well and a number of guests have commented on how nice it was.

It must also be noted how professional and friendly the staff were. We were made to feel very welcome and they genuinely made the evening run like clock work. There was no ask too small!

Normally we would just smile and comment to one another but given how great a job the team did, and the number of compliments on the staff and food, it felt wrong not to share this feedback!
Best regards and thanks again,"

"Just wanted to thank you for what you did for Ramside seniors the other day. I have spoken to several members over the weekend and they without question were full of praise with the condition of the golf course, the hospitality and the catering. To top this off they had excellent weather. Many thanks."

"On behalf of the Teesside Ladies' Golfing Alliance can I thank you for am excellent day last Monday. Despite the weather, we really enjoyed the golf. Your course was in lovely condition, many players commented on it and your members made us very welcome. Thanks to the ladies who manned the desk, the greens staff and catering staff.
Middlesbrough is always a popular course, and a good test of golf, and everyone enjoyed the day. We were made to feel very welcome in a friendly club.
So, again, a big thanks you from the TLGA.

Kind Regards "

"You have a fantastic golf club. In days where complaining is the norm I would be grateful if you in your capacity as Captain would pass on my thanks to the Greens staff, catering and clubhouse staff for making my first trip to Brass Castle a very enjoyable one."

"We recently visited your golf course on Sunday (Houghton-le-Spring 1908) for the first time and on behalf of our society members I would like offer our thanks for a warm welcome and a fantastic days golf. We are a much travelled society from Houghton-le-Spring Golf Club and all agreed that after playing your course it would be difficult to rate any course higher. The facilities are superb and the course layout is not only spectacular but offers an interesting but challenging round of golf.

Our thanks also to the gentleman in the half way house who remained open so we could purchase refreshments, was a kind gesture and the welcome we received from your resident Professional and the starter on the first tee. I am in no doubt our society will want to return again next year as it was the highlight of our society week, already looking forward to next year.

Much appreciated."
