From the Pro ~ August 2022

Dear Members,

We hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are but wow how times flies to say it is already August!

July was a theme month for us it seemed as we had our Caddyshack themed Member-Member, Christmas in July Bucks & Does and our College Style Intermediate Night. No matter the theme, each one was filled with participants and a whole lot of fun!

If you missed any of these events, don’t worry we have many more to come. In August, we will have our Member-Guests, Men’s & Women’s Club Championship, Couples Cup Bucks & Does & our Bocce Ball- Glow Golf tournament.


Pro Tip- Volume #6

“Ways To Increase Pace of Play”

Earlier in the summer, based on USGA suggestions, an 18-hole round at Ligonier Country Club should be played in roughly 3 hours and 57 minutes. Different factors can change this number including tournaments, weather, and course conditions such as faster greens or more difficult pin positions.

Ultimately, the number above is what we would strive for and pushing for a better pace of play, is not about hurrying up or rushing around the golf course. It is simply about being more efficient with your time as well as everybody else’s. So, here are some recognized tips for improving pace of play:

  • Hit when ready and aim to play in 20 seconds. From club selection to pre-shot routine to execution, strive to hit your shot in 20 seconds.
  • When sharing a cart, use the buddy system. Don’t wait in your cart while your cart mate hits and then drive to your ball. Get out and walk to your ball with a few clubs. Be ready to play when it is your turn and then let your cart mate pick you up. Or drive to your ball after you drop your cart mate off and then pick him or her up after you hit.
  • Keep up with the group in front of you.
  • Be efficient on the putting green. Line up your putt when others are putting; most of the time it will not disturb your playing partners. Leave your clubs on the side of the putting green closest to the next tee and record your score on the next tee box.
  • Lastly, play the correct tees or “Tee It Forward”. The red tee does not mean it’s for Ladies only and the white tee does not mean it is for Seniors. Always play a set of tees that is comfortable for you-one where you are more likely to hit lofted irons into greens instead of hybrids or fairway woods.
