Pace of Play Policy

18-Hole Regulation Courses at Meadows and Foothills Golf Courses

A Friendly and Reasonable Pace of Play

With less time for leisure and an emphasis on spending time at work, with friends, family and taking part in other recreational activities; there is an overall sense within the golf community that golfers should be more aware of the importance of pace of play and how best to maintain a friendly and reasonable pace of play. Recent National Golf Foundation research indicates pace of play is one of the greatest concerns of golfers in the United States. Our goal is to share how we manage pace of play at our courses.

Determining Factors

  • For MEADOWS: 4 hours, 10 minutes, “maximum allowable pace” for the golf course is 2 hours, 3 minutes on the front and 2 hours, 2 minutes on the back with 5 minutes allotted at the turn for a total of 4 hours, 10 minutes.
  • For FOOTHILLS: 4 hours, 20 minutes, “maximum allowable pace” for the golf course is 2 hours, 10 minutes on the front and 2 hours, 5 minutes on the back with 5 minutes allotted at the turn for a total of 4 hours, 20 minutes.

10-minute tee time intervals allow us to manage pace of play appropriately and keep pace under 4 hours, 30 minutes and wait times to a minimum. Where did these numbers come from? The Colorado Golf Association has created a time matrix specifically for The Meadows Golf Course. The CGA/CWGA takes data from thousands of rounds played during the summer season and combines that with data collected on the golf course (carries, mow height, hazards) to determine how long it will actually take guests to play each hole and set our pace accordingly. The golf staff combines this data with other factors like course setup, beverage carts, distances from tee-to-green, signage, etc. to create a better pace, fewer waits and a better golf course “flow.”

How Pace of Play is Managed

From the time our guests arrive at the first tee, the pace of play is a reasonable expectation for all guests, regardless of skill level. Please choose your tee accordingly.

Should a group lose position for the first time: The Course Assistant on duty will have a polite conversation with a group to inform them that they’re out of position. This is a friendly chat, allowing the group the opportunity to get back into position within a reasonable amount of time.
Should a group remain out of position after the first conversation:  This group has been given a reasonable opportunity to get back into position, but is still lagging behind the group ahead of them. This conversation with the Course Assistant still allows the group to catch up on their own, but this is the final warning before the group may be re-positioned (skipping a hole or more).
Should a group after (2) conversations remain out of position with the group directly in front of them: This group has fallen further behind, causing a pace of play “backup.” The 3rd conversation may involve the Golf Shop Staff – the result is to either re-position the group back into a proper pace position or offer rain checks. In this case, the groups directly behind are made aware that a group that has been repositioned. On most occasions these groups are appreciative and able to continue playing at a friendly and reasonable pace. The 3rd conversation is one that is no staff member or guests prefers, but the opportunity to make up ground had been extended on (2) previous occasions.

Pace of Play Summary

  • Have reasonable pace of play expectations – total amounts listed above for each course or LESS.
  • Expect to play with groups directly in front of and behind you as the golf course will be busy on most days.
  • The ability to simply “zip” around in 3 hours is rarely available.
  • Play the appropriate tees – don’t simply go by yardage. Ask the Golf Staff for recommendations or see the Meadows scorecard.
  • Drop your partner off with a couple of clubs and proceed to your ball. Hit when ready.
  • Play from the teeing ground should be faster than any other position.
  • If waiting for green to clear on Par 4 or 5, allow shorter hitters to play first.
  • If players in your group are playing from different tees, drop off a player or players and proceed to your tee and be ready to play.
  • We do have Native Grass that can easily hide your golf ball. Please plan accordingly and hit a provisional ball.

Common Comments

  • “The group behind us is not pushing us.”
    • Playing golf, especially on a busy course is a one lane road, or a climb up a ladder. You can only travel as fast as the person or car ahead of you.
  • “I’m not a very good player. / I’m a high handicapper.”
    • Score or handicap has less to do with pace of play than most think. Players and groups who are aware of pace of play and the techniques used to allow them to maintain pace with
      the group in front of them, often have a great pace, regardless of score.
  • “We’re only a few minutes behind.”
    • Groups that are behind are behind “maximum allowable pace.” It is important to understand the ladder concept – if the group in front of you is slightly behind pace, each and every group behind them is now slower and expected and pace of play nears 5 hours quicker than you think. Each group is responsible and in control of their pace, and groups that fall behind will have a chat with our courteous Player Assistants.
  • “We’ve paid our money and will play however we want.”
    • ALL of our guests have paid for a memorable golf experience and deserve the opportunity to play in a reasonable amount of time.
    • Remember, you rented a time slot. That time slot is in continuous motion. You are expected to keep up with that moving time slot.

Weather permitting, our courses are open year round except Thanksgiving Day and December 25.
