Slow play is a significant problem at golf clubs across the country and it puts people off joining a club, staying at a club and playing golf; less members equals higher fees. This is of concern when trying to attract new members to the golf club, particularly those who have young families (a key target group) and therefore more pressure on their free time.

Peterculter Golf Club has already taken steps over the last year to improve the speed of play by working on heavy rough areas around the course to make it both easier to find a stray ball and improve the visual aspect of many holes. This step has cut 10-15 minutes off a typical medal round.

In 2018, we will be introducing Ready Golf, one year ahead of the timing which the R&A plans to do so. The aim of Ready Golf is quite simple (and already practised by many players at the club), to increase the speed of play (when safe to do so) and improve everyone’s enjoyment of this great game.

A double-sided sheet highlighting the aims of Ready Golf and examples of what it means in practice, will be placed on the tables within the clubhouse along with posters in the locker rooms. Your cooperation in applying Ready Golf at Peterculter GC is now required.

Please familiarise yourself with the key expectations of Ready Golf, which can be found in the attached documentation loaded on this page. Let’s take another 10-15 minutes off a round of golf!

Enjoy your golf and think of others!
