Golf Course Rules & Regulations


The golf course shall be open for play Tuesday through Sunday, and shall be open on Mondays during holiday periods and for special events. There will be no play on Monday except scheduled tournament play.
The Course Superintendent or his designated representative in conjunction with the Head Golf Professional shall make the final decision as to whether the course, or any portion, will be closed due to playing conditions. 
Before commencing play, each member and their guests must register in the pro shop. Tee times are required every day of the week. Any group not prepared to tee off at its reserved time forfeits its position. The golf shop will attempt to provide an alternate time. No groups can tee off #10 unless approved by the Pro Shop.
It is customary in golf for the course to give priority to foursomes. Twosomes have no standing on the golf course.
Groups of less than four will be paired up when possible. The pro shop staff will try to pair incomplete foursomes when necessary. This will open up additional times for the rest of the membership.

Play may be approved for up to a five-some. All rounds, regardless of group size must be played in a timely manner in accordance with club rules. All golfers must have a set of clubs to play golf. More than one golfer playing from one bag is not allowed.

Members with children ages 12 and under must sign a liability form before their children can use the golf facilities. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent on the golf course and/or practice facilities, unless otherwise specified by the Pro Shop.
 
A member of the club must accompany guests unless prior arrangements have been authorized by management. Reciprocal privileges will be extended to members from other private country clubs if prior arrangements are made through either management or the Golf Professional. A member with more than four guests must make prior arrangements with management or their designee. Management or their designee reserves the right to approve additional guests under certain conditions. All golfers (members and guests) must register in the Golf Shop prior to commencing play.

No one person may be the guest of any member more than six (6) times in any one twelve (12) month period. 
Proper attire must be worn on the golf course and the practice areas at all times. Only conventional and appropriate golf attire may be worn, the length and fit of which must be considered acceptable by the Club. 

Men (14 and older): Must wear slacks or shorts. Shorts must be mid thigh and above the knee. Shirts with sleeves and collars, shirts must be tucked in, unless designed to be worn untucked. Jeans (in any fabric, color, style, or brand), jogging shorts, gym shorts, sweat pants, t-shirts, tank tops, cut-off shirts, swimsuits, or large open weave shirts are considered inappropriate. Any clothing with slogans, printed messages or advertising except for small corporate identification, logo, club name or emblem is unacceptable. Caps and hats must be worn in the manner designed. Golf shoes must be soft spiked.

Women (14 and older): Women may wear shorts, skirts, or slacks with blouses and/or sweaters. Shorts at a minimum must be mid-thigh and shirts designed to be tucked in should be worn as designed. Short shorts, jeans (in any fabric, color, or brand), jogging shorts, gym shorts, cut offs, un-hemmed shorts, sweatpants, uncovered tights, tank style tops, bare midriff tops, strapless tops, spaghetti straps, are considered inappropriate. Any clothing with slogans, printed messages or advertising except for small corporate identification, logo, club name or emblem is unacceptable. Caps and hats must -- be worn in the manner designed (NO backwards hats). Golf shoes must be soft spiked. Members are responsible for the attire of their guests.
The golf course at Galveston Country Club is maintained for the enjoyment of the members. It is the consensus of management that unduly slow or fast play does not enhance the enjoyment of the course for the membership as a whole. To ensure the timely completion of a round of golf, management has directed the pro shop to marshal the course during heavy periods of play to enforce our rules and keep play moving at an acceptable speed.
While management understands that certain special circumstances will exist from time to time, your fellow members will appreciate your support and compliance with the rules.

Players taking time out for lunch between nine holes lose all priority.
The pro shop staff will try to provide an alternate time to get you back on the course.
A member leasing a golf cart will sign a charge ticket in the golf shop prior to commencing play.

Club-owned and private golf carts are to be driven by licensed drivers age 16 or older only.

No more than two players and only two sets of clubs are permitted on one cart at a time.

Members and guests are requested to use cart paths and observe the 90-degree rule as much as possible to protect the golf course.

Management would appreciate that golfers pair up in golf carts so there are only two carts for a foursome and three carts for a five-some.

During wet weather or when certain areas of the course would benefit from restricted traffic, Management may require that carts stay on the paths. Handicap Flags will not be permitted on these days.

Carts must have all four wheels on the cart paths around tees and greens. Carts must return to the cart path when so directed by cart path signs.

Electric carts must be kept a minimum distance of 30 yards from all greens.

Push/Pull carts must not be pulled between greens and bunkers or over the tee boxes

Any member who owns a private cart will be charged when that member uses a club-owned cart. 

Playing guests of members will be charged a cart fee regardless of whether the guests ride in a club owned cart or a private cart.

The member is personally responsible for any damage caused to a cart, other property or personal injury caused to any person.

Private golf carts are subject to specific rules and regulations governing design, style, tire specifications, and quality. All private carts must be inspected and approved by the Golf Professional. No carts will be permitted without such approval.

Cart paths are restricted to the use of golf carts only. All vehicles and other modes of transportation are prohibited on the cart paths and golf course. Due to obvious danger during play, non-players are not permitted on the course or paths unless accompanying a golfer.

World Handicap System (WHS) is the downward adjustment of individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make handicaps more representative or a player's potential scoring ability. WHS sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap. WHS is used only when a player's actual or most likely score exceeds his maximum number based on the table below. A maximum score per hole that can be posted is based on a golfer's present handicap.

Course Handicap Maximum # on any hole:

  • 9 or less = double bogey
  • 10-19 = 7     
  • 20-29 = 8
  • 30-39 = 9     
  • 40 or more = 10
Handicaps are determined under the guidelines of the USGA and managed by the Head Golf Professional and his staff. Every member in the interest of fair play shall return a scorecard for every golfing round (18 holes) played. The card should be completed with full name, member #, tees, and date played. The card should be returned as soon as possible after completion of play. If a member does not turn in all scores or does not observe the spirit of the handicap system, a handicap may be arbitrarily reduced or increased.
  • Tuesday-Friday 7:30a.m.-5:00p.m./6:30p.m. DST
  • Saturday 7:00a.m.-4:30p.m./6:30p.m. DST
  • Sunday 7:00a.m.-4:30p.m./6:00p.m. DST

Practice shall be restricted to the designated practice areas. Players should refrain from engaging in any practice that would damage the course or disrupt play. The taking of or playing with range balls is strictly prohibited. 

Players should take special care to fill divots with sand provided on the golf carts. Repair all ball marks on the greens, and rake the bunkers as you leave them. Those members with private carts are to carry sand on their cart to fill divots. Each member should take great pride in our course and do their part to keep it enjoyable for the players that follow.  No pets shall be allowed on club property at any time.

Remember!!

  • Repair the ball marks on the greens.

  • Repair your divots with sand & seed mixture provided.

  • Rake the bunker after hitting your ball & place the rake in the bunker.
